Since we live in the south, fire ants are a given, but the ones we seem to have are enormous. I read in another post about pouring boiling water into the mound, which I like the idea of. But it looks like the nasty things have gotten into our container of BOSS. 1.) how do I keep them out? 2.) Is it ok to give to goats? (probably not, but I figure I'll see). Also, we have a few decent sized mounds in their pasture, the goats never seemed bothered by them, but should I see to killing the mounds? Or can they live in harmony? We have chickens, but they won't touch these huge ants that we've got.
