Goner Message Board / ???? / Fire Ants: Worse than snakes with feet?
Posted: Sep 17, 2009 1:18 pm
I say they are. In fact I can't think of anything I hate more than fire ants.

Anyone got a home remedy? I've got about 4 fresh stings.

What about the mosquitoes that give you AIDS?

the peepee-up-swimming amazonian fish don't sound like much fun, either.

so far managed to avoid 'em. Ha!

Baking soda/water paste is soothing and will draw out poison...OR, better yet, a teaspoon of Adolf's meat tenderizer with a drop each of Vit E oil and pure cocoa butter mixed in to a make a thick paste will do the same and heal stings much quicker. Works for any insect/bee sting, and cold sores too!
Da truf!

One foot snakes still suck it!

Windy had me put that on a bee string once. I thought she made it up. Hmm.

Some weirdo down the street told me to eat 1.5 cigarettes to cope with internal parasites.

The weirdest part was the extra half a cigarette.

i have tried pretty much everything over the years. the only thing that works is to set the mound on fire. it works, and it's fun, too!

Use diesel to burn out your fire ants. Let it soak all the way down into the colony. Then light it up. It doesn't explode. Nice slow burn.

I don't know about fire ants, but if you pour raw grits on a regular ant hill, they feed it to the queen, queen drinks water, grits expand, ant pops like over-blown balloon. No queen, no hill. Takes about a week. Same concept as throwing rice at weddings being a bird killer.

I've used the wet tobacco trick for yellow jacket stings, when I had a landscaping job. That shit does the trick.

Bullet ants are worse!! but they dont exist round here. You tube it..you'll see what I mean.

Diluted bleach solution on the bites will break down the poison before it sets in. Gotta do it in the first 10 or 15 minutes though.

Boiling water on the mound will kill em. Follow with poison granules around the area to prevent new mounds.
