Do The Next Level of Organic Pest Control for Fire Ants for a Better Treatment


 
Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Learning their habitat, it is much easy to learn also how to get rid of fire ants. Many gardeners report good results with instant grits, Malt-o-Meal and other instant break fast cereals. Spraying products that contain molasses helps keep them away. Apply beneficial microorganisms. Laboratory tests have shown that the beneficial fungus Beauveria bassiana is effective against fire ants.

Fire ant mounds have a hard, rain-resistant crust and are often found in open sunny areas. There are usually no external openings in the mound; underground tunnels allow foraging workers to come and go. Fire ants are aggressive when disturbed and will defensively attack anything that disturbs their mounds or food sources.

Fire ants thrive in almost any soil but prefers open, sunny areas such as pastures, parks, lawns, meadows and cultivated fields. They will also infest the vegetable garden. They love eggplant, okra, cabbage and broccoli. Fire ants do not like biodiversity

A totally organic approach works better and creates no contamination to the user, the soil, the air or the water. To control fire ants and other pests like fleas, termites, chinch bugs, ticks, crickets and grasshoppers, try this. It won't hurt you and you'll see great results.

Neither toxic poisons nor chemical growth regulators are necessary to control fire ants. The concept of A&M's new two step recommendation has one fatal flaw. It doesn't work. It's the same program that has been being used for years, and fire ants still rule. I know – used to use that program myself. The so-called "Earth-Kind" approach is to treat the site with baits then the mounds with contact poisons. The specific recommendations are to douse the mounds with the toxic chemicals like Orthene, an acephate that is water soluble. This and other lab-created poisons such as diazinon, Dursban and malathion are contaminating our soil and water supply. The baits, Logic and Award, are now listed by the EPA as probable carcinogens.

Due to health concerns, its good to prefer the organic way. .

There are pest control steps that can be taken to reduce the competitive edge of fire ants and as part of an overall organic program to control fire ants.

1. Increase biodiversity Fire ants are more of a problem in new neighborhoods than in older neighborhoods, where there is a more stabilized ecosystem. When fire ants are forced to compete they become less of a problem. We must do our part to encourage nature.

2. Treating the lawn spring and fall with nematodes Treat after sunset and follow-up with ½ inch of irrigation. Nematodes are live microscopic worms and need to be applied at the highest recommended rate and in a manor to ensure their survival.

Individual Mound Treatment

3. Treat individual mounds with 1-1/2 ounces of citrus and a few drops of soap as a wetting agent per gallon of water. Treat each mound with one gallon of diluted mixture.

Ant Tip To move a mound of these beneficial ants, cover it with shredded mulch. The ants will relocate to a spot where the opening to the mound is again in full sun.

Fire Ant Remedy - sprinkle a packet of aspartame (Equal or Nutra Sweet) on the mound. Ants will be gone the next day.

If on top of all the tries, the ant still exist, approach the professionals to do the job for you
