A wonderful organic control for fire ants is Soda Water! Local Atlanta garden guru Walter Reeves mentioned this, after we had fire ants in our church greenhouse. We needed a plant drench but didn't want a chemical drench. Soda Water worked great, and it has been working well on this years mounds in the driveway cracks too!!
