Re: SHB Mess
I bet SouthTexasJohn or I could find one or two fire ant queens to ship you. Heck I think I could go fast and get an decent size shovel full of dirt from the center of a mound into a box and seal it fast for you if you really wanna go that route.
With all the rain we got this year, it really knocked them back, but last year it was find a 20x20 foot spot in the yard without fire ant and I would give you $100.
But the beetle numbers are increasing here as well. Just hoping the rain drowned lots of pupae as well.
Started 9/13, building slowly, now @ 10 Lang hives + 14 nucs, and treatment style not decided yet
