    I like ants. They feed the horny toads. They have never bothered me.

    Boiling water on the mound works, and gives the survivors something to do (removal of the dead). Wait a day or two, and see all the corpses ejected from the colony.

    I used gas to get the fireants off my dog's grave when I was six years old. It was also the first time I spent the night in the hospital. Six year olds don't quite grasp the concept of "highly flammable."

    I know a guy who spent a year in a burn unit from burning ant hills with gas.

    He even has skin grafts on his johnson.

    We call him lizard ****

    I don't light the gas, just pour about a cup into the entrance of the mound. If pools in their catch basins and the fumes kill all the ants.

    Or you can sprinkle a tablespoon of diatomaceous earth on the mound.

    You've been here for two years and you believe that more than one or two people here care about that?

    Why would you pour gas on instead of an actual ant poison?

    Or DE?

    Help me understand.

    Gas because it may be handy, and it works very well. But it stinks, especially in areas which have special "enviro" blends.

    DE because it's totally nontoxic and death to small arthropods. I sprinkled my garage and basement on 9/28 and haven't seen a bug since. Prior to that I would always see a couple of trophy waterbugs skitter away anytime I went into the garage at night.
