Diatomaceous Earth and Fire Ants

by Jeanne Brown
(Athens, TX USA)

I have a small business growing tomato, pepper, and vegetable starts for farmers and local folks each spring.

Because I use only organic products and no pesticides, herbicides, etc, I have some difficulty controlling fire ants.

I find that I can cover seed tables, sprinkle it around legs of tables and on the ground cover and the fire ants leave. It doesn't kill the fire ants but it does move them.

I am happy with that because there are fewer ticks with fire ants and all I want is them to move out of my greenhouses and garden.

I love DE!
