How to kill fire ants

A terrifying threat from tropical depression Cindy: Floating masses of deadly fire ants

Floodwaters won’t kill the notoriously tough insects, which are just as dangerous when they’re wet as they are dry, according to Alabama officials.
One of the best ways to deal with fire ants is to sprinkle instant grits over their mound when it is dry.  The ants eat the grits and the moisture in their stomach causes the grits to expand and kill them.
