We're just starting to see a few stragglers here in south west KY, but they are definitely on the move in this direction. Thanks for the great article. I'll remember it if the time comes for me to need it here.

I agree, Melody.

About 3 to 5 years ago, my parents had a mound in their backyard. They're retired & aren't fond of yard work. They've had a father & son lawn crew since I left for college. While the son was pushing the detail mower along the lilac hedge, he ran over the ant mound: talk about a swarm!!!

Are there PA native ants that build mounds???

I haven't seen any since. I wish I'd said something when I visited & saw the mound. Perhaps I could've spared the guy a nasty experience ...
