Fire Ants Like Compost

Fire ants like compost.  There's nothing quite like turning a 4' x 4' x 4' pile of compost that is completely infested with fire ants.  I added a bunch of leaves and grass, some sulfur, and lots of water.  Between the heat of composting and the ill effects of the sulfur, those ants probably won't outlive the bites they inflicted.
