So, online I went to find how to take care of this problem. One site said to pour hot soapy water of it. So while the flower pot was still sitting on the ant bed, I did so. Thirty minutes later, I checked it. They were laughing at me. So, I tried another suggestion. Pour hot boiling water on them. The fire ants continued to laugh at me. Finally, I found another suggestion that I laughed and rolled in the floor about, even posted my exact thoughts on their comment section! They said to place "basil" around to ward of ants including fire ants! Do you SEE what kind of plant is IN that pot!? Oh just BASIL!! Which I may have total killed already, soap, hot boiling water...I mean really.
Then I was looking online when I saw my coffee cup! I was like, hmmm, I wonder...So I asked my mother if she wanted anymore coffee. Then I asked Madison and of course she was like, "Yuck!" I took that as a possibility the coffee was finished for the day. I got the pot and carried it out the door and poured it over the plant, the pot and around it...Yes, there was that much. Not usually, but...whatever reasons there was today...
Guess what...it killed the ants...interesting...Just thought you would like to know what I will be doing each morning as I finish my cup of coffee...=)
