First Doctor Fire Ant Post

Hello!  This is a test post for my new blog, Dr. Fire Ant's Musings.  You can find my blog at  This blog will discuss what else?  Fire ants! (and maybe a few other troublesome pests!)

The red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta, is an insect in the order Hymenoptera, which consists of ants, bees and wasps.  Fire ants are in the family Formicidae.  But you don't need to know that.  You just want to kill them, right?  Well, guess what.  You can't get rid of fire ants.  But you can control them.  Watch for more posts to find out how.
