When I bought this house about 5 years ago there was one (mercifully just one) fire ant mound in the front yard, at a distance from the house. I attacked that thing twice daily with boiling water, making VERY sure that I was wearing long pants tucked into socks that I had sprayed with insect repellent. I killed off that mound, but if I had been faced with more than one mound I don't know what I would have done. Now the most annoying pests I have are mole crickets, which of course means I have moles... [sigh]
