    it touches and knocks back the population a bit but it never gets the queen so you never get the hive.

    Luckily we have no fire ants here, too dry,  but we have these harvester ants that,  thank Ghu aren't at all aggressive,  as a bite feels like you've been hit by a sledgehammer and lasts for days with severe swelling...And they get everyone that way, not just an allergy fo rme....just the absolute worst insect bite I have ever felt...makes bees, wasps and scorpions feel like a sweet sweet kiss....

    I have one hive on the property and when they get to be too populous, I circle their holes with de for a week or two and knock them back to reasonable numbers.....
