How do I get rid of fire ants? My house is infested and they are coming through the ceiling.
I've tried baits, diatomaceous earth, borax, poisons like terro, etc. Those little suckers just won't go away. Because they come through the ceiling it makes it difficult to treat them. Dusts and liquid poisons can't be put on the ceiling. There are hundreds of thousands of them that I've dealt with the past few months. They keep coming back.
You should try finding where they are coming in at, chances are they are climbing a wall to get to the ceiling. We pour our used grease over the ant piles. Good luck on getting rid of them.
My ants are very intelligent. We've searched the yard for nests and how they are getting in. We can't find any trace of them outside. I think they might have magic powers because those little suckers have survived everything we've done to them.
The nest itself may be in the attic, hidden in a pile of insulation or some boxes or something. You may need to get an actual fire ant exterminator to search the attic for the next and to treat it there, then to find areas where they could have gotten into your attic and block those off with caulk or the likes. Ants are a pain, fire ants are even worse. They filled almost our entire 1 acre yard with ant hills a few months back, but with the right pet safe poison applied right before a good rain, we haven't seen an ant hill since.
