Fire ants

On a lazy Saturday morning,, enjoying gourmet coffee*, nursing aches and pains, the old lady watched a very interesting television program about fire ants.  It’s nice to learn details about the little creatures that cause me pain and frustration. If that link doesn’t take you to the program, search NBC for the program titled Journey with Dylan Dryer. By experience, I’ve learned that “flip-flops” or barefoot sandals are a definite “no-no” in my yard. The program did not talk about their “poison” but I speculate they leave residue that causes a sting. Sometimes I have itching and burning but never saw an ant. Dumping a commercial “killer” product on the colony is another ritual along with watering plants.
