With all the recent rain you may have seen fire ant mounds popping up as they get themselves out of the waterlogged soil.  Although they are visible they probably aren’t foraging yet. Using baits for fire ant control is the best and least toxic way of handling them. However, if the soil temperature is below 70 degrees they probably won’t be foraging which means the bait won’t get picked up in a timely manner which means that it was a waste of time. Once is gets warmer and they start foraging, be sure to read the instructions before applying fire ant bait, or give us a call & we can take care of them.  Encourage your neighbors to treat for them too, this can extend your own results.
