I’m gonna check this out. I should own stock in ant killer at this point I have so much but I’m always game to try something new.

terra core is correct. Read the post he has on here.
I use Amdro, greatest stuff in the world, it's a bait.
Spread it away from your grow bags, the fire ants will cart it home.
It kills the queen.
No more fire ants, and you won't have to put it in your grow bags.
By the way, tried the Amdro around the bags but not in them. Worked for about a week and then they were back. This hot dry weather isn’t helping any as they love that and thrive in it.

Try using Siesta. A lot of people have better luck with it.
