Sounds too simple to be true, but certainly worth a try.

         This is a new twist to killing fire ant colonies.

            For those not familiar with Walter Reeves, he is from the University of Georgia agriculture department, specializing in home gardening.His television show,  'Gardening in Georgia', is on each Saturday.

           I know fire ants are picky eaters and any type poison that is effective takes seven feeding steps before the queen receives it.  Plus, if the bait is stored in close proximity to any petroleum or fertilizer products they won't touch it.
         Contact poisons that are on the market just cause the colony to move away. A well developed colony  can be as deep as 30 feet and spread out some 20 to 50 feet from the  mound center... This was documented by studies done in the early 60's  when they were first sited in South Alabama.

           An environmentally friendly cure for fire ants has been announced by Walter Reeves on his Georgia Gardener radio program. Testimonials that  it REALLY WORKS are coming in.

           Simply pour two cups of CLUB SODA (carbonated water) directly in the  center of a fire ant mound. The carbon dioxide in the water is heavier  than air and displaces the oxygen which suffocates the queen and the  other ants. The whole colony will be dead within about two days.

        Besides eliminating the ants, club soda leaves no poisonous residue,  does not contaminat the ground water, and does not indiscriminately  kill other insects. It is not harmful to your
         pets, soaks into the ground. Each mound must be treated individually and a one liter of club soda will kill 2 to 3 mounds.
