    If you want to kill them go to a Farmers Co-op or similar store and ask for a chemical called Tall Star. DO NOT tell them you are using it for termites. It says on the label that you must be licensed to spray for termites. Tell them you are using it to spray for bugs. It will even handle fire ants. Great stuff!

    A person could probably take over the world with the random stuff they can buy at the local Co-op.

    Probably true. I just finished spraying my house and all the ant beds in the yard I could find. My church is about 100' from Lake Wies, it use to stay covered in spider webs and assorted bugs. I have a friend that I taught and fished with for years who after he retired started a pest control business. He's the only pest control guy I know with a degree in science. I asked him what could be done and he told me about the Talstar. We spray the church twice a year and never see spiders,bugs, or any other pest on the outside.

    Hope you don't fish in that lake.

    Was at a Civil War reenactment in Charleston SC at Boone Hall Plantation. Took a 'hit'. Fell on a fire ant hill. I resurrected at near light speed. The only time that a 'casualty' went running off the field while nearly stripping their entire uniform off to my knowledge. Those little bastards lit me up good. I'm dreading the day they adapt to life in the Appalachian foothills.

    You guys are just jealous you can't lift telephone poles over your heads, IMO.

    Do the Talstar granules work as well?

    The fireants here at Bragg are dreadful. I take a book of matches and hairspray every time I go fishing. One day I'm going to burn the reservation down, but I don't care. I hate those bastages.

    Never tried them, I've only used the spray!
