No, I’m not talking about dancing. I’ll be heading to Texas soon and as an organic gardener, folks are warning me about fire ants. More worrisome are the claims that chemical poisons are the only way to kill, deter, get rid of the stinging interlopers.
Preliminary research is turning up something called the Texas Two-Step method pioneered at Texas A&M and this method can be used with either chemical toxins or more organic materials offered for sale by companies that sell organic gardening products.
Does anyone have any experience with these methods?
