Fire Ants in my potted hibiscus!!!
My poor hibiscus! First it was the droves of grasshoppers and now the pot is one big fire ant colony! I noticed it a couple of weeks ago and sprinkled some amdro on top of the soil. A couple of days later I checked it and there were not any signs of ants....or so I thought! A few days ago, we had some really bad wind so I moved it underneath the porch. I went to move it back today only to find a ton of fire ants underneath the pot. I pulled the whole thing (plant & soil) out of the pot and sure enough, they are now living in the bottom half of the pot. I put some more amdro in the bottom, put the plant back in, and sprinkled more on top. Does anyone have any suggestions?!!? I really need to bring it in for the winter but can't until I am sure all of the ants are gone!!!
