Picture of How to Kill Fire Ants and Commit Genocide
This Instructable is a glimmer of hope for the haters of that most dastardly of ants, the FIRE ANT

Step 1: A Brief Word:

Now, before you jump to conclusions, I believe all animals have a purpose and place (generally right next to the mashed potatoes and gravy :D), however when they are no longer in this place, they no longer have purpose. Red Imported Fire Ants are an example of these rouge species (they're imported, duh). I quite personally detest the little bastards, they sting you, they destroy native habitats, they devour native species, they are a general pain, and they bite you (I might have mentioned that one already). So anyway, it is one of my life's passions to destroy as many of there kind as possible. However, I seek only to destroy fire ants, leading me to come to various means of mound specific destruction.

The thing is, you have to kill the queen. So if you don't use enough to get all the way to the queen, she will re populate the mound. So spraying with the vinegar solution will only kill part of the workers, not the queen.

I come from NY & have never encountered fire ants until I moved to Florida, was walking my dog and did not know why my ankle was red & burning I kicked my sneakers off & a neighbor told me I walked on a mound of red ants. Just purchased a house & I see these mounds. Now it is get even time. Thanks,I love your solution.

Love the humor in a no humor subject. I look forward to my first "killing" of the hill of death. (and yes, these ants do kill others, people also !)

Another way to kill them long term (if they keep coming back) is to mix baking soda + sugar and sprinkle it around, they eat it, and then it reacts inside them killing them.

Those little darlings just killed 2 kitties, I;m having a hard time killing the red ants, their a nightmare!!!

To increase your killing power mix 50/50 powder sugar and baking soda. The ants will eat it and take back to their nest. After feeding them for a couple days do the and vinegar as instructed. The ants that have digested the baking soda and sugar will blow up from the inside total destruction. Thanks Tom

I love genocide! Me and this guy have a lot in common
Crikey lads..I never saw so much effort involved in killing small bugs. Ok I know we who are stranded on a western isle do not see much of the biting and stinging insects but god almighty..Its easy to kill things that are small and a waste of 100,000 years of technology and human evolution

Have you ever been bitten by a fire ant? Ever had them swarm up your leg and bite it till it is nothing but a pusing pustule?

IT'S REVENGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Australia has things that fire ants have nightmares about. Bulldog ants, for one.

when I was 5 I took a plastic shovel to go "treasure hunting" in my woods and I accidently smacked an underground bees nest. those suckers are my worse enemies. so are wasps, sometimes they will sting for little or no reason.
baking soda and some other stuff will help the stings, but what I wanted was revenge. thats why the best way to kill thoes bees is with liquid long range insect killer and a lighter. I find that insects arnt all that fond of fire.

same here i hate all kinds of bees they sneak up on breaks and try to eat my chocolate today they made me shout "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" in my loudest shout
I had experienced that problem when I was 8, but RED ANTS! I was outside talking away with another person and soon one of my leg feels strange, but I kept on talking... Then my leg feels even MORE strange, then I finally looked at my leg and what I saw is my leg plastered in red ants... I screamed like hell and run around in my garden, it was no fun...

I share your suffering, now share in mine enemies DESTRUCTION!!!!
Yes!!! They are really annoying and PAINFUL!!!
Who are you kidding? Australia has bull ants, the likes of which make fire ants look like little weenies by comparison. Folks not from Down Under should look up bull ants and see what they can do. Wicked bad ants.

I use a mixture of 1/2 Cider Vinegar, 1/2 water, and about a tsp of dish washing soap in a spray bottle. As soon as it hits the little buggers it kills them.
