The Danger Of Fire Ants

Last Friday, a church staff called us over phone to remind us of the scheduled spring cleaning. Spring cleaning means to perform a general cleaning after a long winter season. Cleaning does not only involve inside the house but outside the house as well; and you got to be careful from those dangerous fire ants. It happened to me once, I was cleaning our backyard, found mounds, was trying to move it to the dust pan that I was carrying… You can guess what happened. I ended up running to the bathroom.
There are few general ways we know on how to kill fire ants and one of them is by scalding fire ants with boiling water. This is the standard home strategies. It works, but it's not 100% effective and often just causes the fire ants to move to a different part of the yard. Let us stop taking chances on them. knows better on how to kill fire ants and exterminate any that are infesting our land.
