The Q&A Archives: Raised Bed Garden

Question: I'm building a raised bed garden, but we have a lot of Fire Ants here in central Texas. How do I keep them out of my raised bed garden?

Answer: Your options are to find a fire ant repellant in a product you can use around the garden, or to treat the individual and mounts with a low toxicity contact type product such as orange oil. I would suggest first approach. For additional help and ideas on dealing with fire ants let me refer you to the following website which is an excellent resource. Thanks for the question.
