fire ants, spring break, brackets stuff, 11111111111

if you live where you dont have to deal with fire ants then
consider yourself lucky
texas am is starting to look at non chemical ways to get rid
of them
its about time
there has been stories about using coffee grounds to get rid of
fire ants
well in the study (they actually used starbucks grounds) the
population of ants increased instead of decreasing
but the ground was enriched with the coffee grounds, starbucks
got richer, and people who drank the coffee got more awake

they also used club soda
the thinking is that the bubbling co2 gases would destroy the ants
didnt work either
maybe should have added some gin or vodka

they also tried cinnamon it didnt work either

now they are studying the use of oak ash and cayenne pepper
if one will work bet i know which one

i use in my organic treatments two products and both seem to
work well

spinosid an organic product that comes as a spray or powder
i usually use the powder and sprinkle it around the mound

the other thing i use is grits right from the box
i sprinkle it right from the box around and over the mound
they seem to disappear after a few days
especially like to use it in my garden
it works better on southern fire ants

all good things must come to an end
where we live spring break comes to an end today
know those teachers wish they had another week break
now its the big run to the end of the year

if you are just starting yours today hope you enjoy it
it goes fast

my wife she had a good one
will blog it next week

well horns play oakland today
hope they are ready
