Natural Remedy for Fire Ants

I am looking for an all natural way to kill fire ants. We have animals, we have chickens (they help, but not in the garden during growing season), and we have kids. We try to do as much natural remedies as we can. If someone has a recipe to share, I thank you in advance.

Sprinkle grits around. They will expand in their stomachs and kill them

Gross, but dumping a spit bottle from someone who chews tobacco will kill them. My husband was a chemical engineer for 30 years and many commercial products contain extracts from nicotine...

so if you know where the nest is, the simplest thing is to boil orange peels in water and then go over to the nest and douse the nests with boiling water. (incidentally this works for killing stubborn weeds, too)

Aside from that Borax in general is a good anticide, you can spray on the path they walk on.

Try dish detergent as you probably already have some.
