Greek Yogurt Win

Remember the magic homemade ant-killing potion I tried here?  The results are in.

For those with a small ant colony or infestation, I would have to give the organic borax method two thumbs up.  For those whose homes must surely be sitting on the largest fire ant colony east of the Mississippi, we go commercial.

The method I attempted worked splendidly on the existing colony, but following its demise, we found another.  And another.  And another.  In fact, they are surfacing all over our yard - front and back - and have even killed off various and assorted shrubbery.  We are constantly in a state of scratching some sting from the irritating little buggers, and so we are launching a full out chemical assault on the entire population.

I am beginning to feel at war with mother nature one pest at a time.


  1. I'm sorry friend. We have a few colonies of them, nothing like that though! They are terrible.

  2. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, and chemical warfare sounds appropriate here. Go get 'em, Girl!!

  3. So now we need.a pic of Brad in his full MOPP gear with his sniper rifle waving to the neighbors;-)

  4. Don't give him any ideas, Chad. I am not sure who wishes we had that little acreage more: us or our neighbors.
