big red ants
Last year I listened to a bug show on NPR radio and started using ANT BAIT to kill the red fire ants in my yard. It has worked wonderful. I sit and watch as they take the bait and run back into the hole with it and say YAY look, then they all eat it and die, instead of just moving over 10 feet and starting a new ?colony?
I have a second piece of property and found HUGE red ants, they tear the ground up and have several large holes in one area instead of just one hole. I scattered some ant bait and watched. The lttle suckers went to work right away BUT I watched in awe as they ran down the several holes and took back out what bait fell in and layed it away from the hole. ALL of them were doing it. THEY ARE SMART.
Do they sting like the little ones?
How do I kill them if they wont take the bait??
Thanks for any help!!!!
