    You could feed "ant baits" directly to the invasive ant nests. That way, the native ants won't be effected. The baits are laced with boric acid, not enough to kill the ant immediately, but to slowly poison them over time. This way, they will also feed it to the queen/s and they will also die. Supporting the native ants won't keep those fire ants from killing other native animals.

    i live in Texas, raise chickens, and have had the unfortunate experience of going ankle-deep into a fire ant nest. they will kill and eat anything they can, especially baby chickens, small pets, and at worst adult birds. on bad summers my backyard can have up to 15 ant nest, and because i live with my family, my dad insist on using pesticides. other things also work, such as having plants that are toxic to fire ants growing near the house. whenever they build a nest by a window or near the doors i use boiling vinegar poured directly into the nest. it stinks for a while, but any ants that don't die to the vinegar leave because of the smell. it also helps to never let any trash lay around, like cardboard or plastic. they seem to like making entrances under shade. and if all else fails i use fire, usually just a little bit of rubbing alcohol and a match to burn the nest.

  • PhillMillennial
    PhillMillennialVor 15 Tage

    Those fire ants WILL kill the chickens and their eggs. As much as I hate to say it and I know that isn't what this channel is about, you MUST kill them in some fashion, because the damage they'll do is tremendous. Yes, the goats will also be harmed. Kerosene/petrol and fire, or boiling water. I could also recommend the ant-sand stuff (Works like sand of paris) - but it won't kill the entire colony, just slow them down enough to use another method before the fire ants kill the entirety of the garden. Keeping them as a pet colony is one thing, but they are NOT safe to have around as a wild bunch.

    Antscanada, you asked about fire ants eating chickens, and they are in fact a serious hazard to chickens, especially for young chicks and small bantam breeds. They will kill and eat chickens if they peck at fire ant nests or if the fire ants are especially hungry for flesh.
