Here is some interesting info on the subject.

Exactly my case! "Fire ants can’t be eliminated entirely because it’s not possible to treat all areas that are infested."

PS, Thanks for all the info. Treatment with a "fire ant" product seems the best way to go, even if it is only a temporary fix. If I do this in the spring, we may get to go barefoot by summer.

larrybl,
some info that may be of some help for you and others who have this problem...
if you've already tried it, oh well - hope it worked!   :thumbs:
 
Hi-Yield Fire Ant Control With Acephate
 
 
was doing some totally unrelated info-seek when this came up - no idea why...  :wallbanging:
 
I AM familiar with and DO USE and RECOMMEND a product called AMDRO - which DOES work for the little 'grease ants' and the regular size red ants - sprinkle it on/around the mound - 1/2 to 2 days and the hill is vacant.
The BIG PLUS I like about the AMDRO - safe around pets!!!  :rocker2:  
(ask me how I know)  :poke:   :hitting_self_roller:
