Fire ants are a pest that is not only annoying but they can be dangerous to humans and pets. They can infiltrate indoor and outdoor environments and multiply so quickly that infested areas can have 7 million ants per acre. I’m Melissa from NorthlineExpress and today I will introduce you to a natural product that can have fire ants gone in as little as 24 hours, without poisons!
Rid your Property of Fire Ants
There are tons of insecticides and fire ant baits out there but they usually dangerous to humans and wildlife. Birds are often attracted to the ant baits that are sprinkled on the ants mounds and end up poisoned after eating the bait. Even though fire ants are nasty and a serious problem that doesn’t mean that you cannot use a safer, alternative means to rid your area of fire ants.
Like many other ant species you usually do not only see one ant hill or mound. Where there’s one there are usually more and in the case of fire ants each mound can contain up to 500,000 ants. They like to build their nests near concrete or other structure that will hold heat and warm their nests underground.
These numbers are scary when you think about how aggressive these ants are; they are known to attack any animals or humans that intrude upon their nests. Disturb a fire ant mound, even unintentionally, and you will quickly be attacked by thousands of stinging ants. Each sting causes welts or blisters and fire ants can sting multiple times. Their stings can cause infections or allergic reactions that are sometimes even serious enough to cause death.
This is Mosquito barrier, a very strong liquid garlic juice, is powerful enough that just ounces mixed with water poured over mounds can have fire ants out of your yard in just 24 hours. It’s also effective without being harmful to animals, humans, and plants. It also works fast where poisons and ant baits can often take weeks to kill off just a single colony. Chemicals or poison ant control is also potentially harmful to wildlife and pets that may consume it.
The Staff at Garlic barrier tested out the effects of mosquito barrier on fire ants and repeatedly found the same results; any mound they poured the mixture on showed no sign of ants within 24 hours. Even when they dug up the mounds they still found not a single ant. They also noticed that those who used barrier to spray their lawns to repel mosquitoes did not have any fire ant mounds. So mosquito barrier sprayed on your lawn keeps mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks away but it also makes your lawn an undesirable home for fire ants.
So let’s talk about how to mix barrier to rid your yard of fire ants. It is important and recommended that you apply this to the ant mounds in the early morning when the ants will be slow moving. The amount of barrier that you will use per gallon of water depends on the size of the mounds that you are dousing. For mounds up to 1ft in diameter min 8 ounces of barrier with 1 gallon. For mounds up to 2ft in diameter mix 16 ounces of barrier with 2 gallons of water. For large mounds up to 3ft in diameter mix 24 ounces of barrier with 3 gallons of water. Make sure to stir the mixture well. To apply the mixture you will first want to use a long handled shovel or large board to knock off the top of the mound. Once you have knocked off the mound then pour the mixture into the exposed entry ways. You do not want to spray the mounds instead use a watering can with a nozzle attached or pour the mixture slowly from a bucket.
Once you have applied the mixture to the mounds you should be seeing drastic results within 24 hours. I hope you have found this information helpful.
