Fire Ants

Well, I found the first thing I REALLY don’t like in SC.   Fire ants.  I walked outside yesterday and saw this mound of red clay by the front steps.   I thought, that’s odd?   Where did that come from?  I nudged my toe in the dirt and out came thousands and thousands of small ants.   I’ve never seen anything like it!   I still had the two sheet rock guys here and told them about it.   They said immediately – fire ants.   I was really lucky they didn’t bite me.  I guess the sting is pretty bad.   They told me what to go buy and I high tailed it to the TR True value.  I came home and spread the granulas and again they swarmed all over.  Everyone warned me that I would have to be diligent using the granulas because they come back quickly.   I checked the next day and they were still gone.  I guess now I need to be on fire ant patrol.  Sure glad kitty stayed away.  There sting is so bad they can kill small animals.  They are really nasty.   Read more at wikipedia
