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?

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. http://pubs.caes.uga.edu/caesp...
