Good news! Red imported fire ants can be controlled with persistence, patience and the right plan. The Texas Two-step Method gives excellent control of fire ants, particularly in larger lawns and neighborhoods where their mounds are numerous (more than five per 1/4-acre yard). When properly applied, this method causes little risk to people, pets or the environment.
