Thanks Bruce. He has a link on his website for Hate Mail. I sent him some. He probably gets a lot of it.

Weeds growing through mulch. The solution: more mulch. Gimme a break!

I feel your pain, brother...but it's a necessary evil, I guess.

Don't let the mulch get you down...don't let it win!

Should have put landscape fabric down before the mulch.


I've delivered 10 yards so far today.

For us, mulch sales have replaced the walk in traffic we lost to Lowe's.

We normally sell 600 yards a year.

Heh heh.

Thanks MFG, but it's gettin' me down. I'm supposed to be on vacation, but all I've been doin' is pullin' weeds. rakin' mulch, goin' to Lowes and buying bags of mulch.....all in 90 degree heat. Damn Sir Mallard Mulch! Sheesh!!!

Don't put mulch or cedar chips in the flower bed up against your house cause it can draw termites and other bugs that eat your house. I found out the hard way about that. Now I have those stupid white rocks on one side and pine straw on the other. I agree, mulch sucks!!!

Some good old fire ant powder. I can tell your down south now. Now you have to watch out for Killer Bees.

Linnie you can pour little gas on the mound. This will kill 'em. Also and this will sound crazy but pour some uncooked grits over the mound. This has worked in the past but gas works better as it kills all the fire ants. Those little bastards put me in the ER about 5-6 years ago after an allergic reaction to a few hundred swarming me.

You can never get rid of fire ants, but Amdro granules sprinkled arount the mound works ok. Bare feet are only for the beach down here. Bob, when it's hot out, do as I do, nothing!

My grandads favorite ant killer of choice. Gasoline! Watch for the flash back though. Actually, of all the orange bag ant killers I found the one called Over-n-Out seemed to work a little better than the regular stuff but to be honest I don't think they can legally sell the "real" stuff that actually kills them like they used to back in the day. All the stuff these days seems to do is move them. Heck, I can spray the mound with my waterhose for free and make them move but good luck finding something that works for ya.

Welcome to the south!

Landscape fabric down before the mulch. Did this for the 1st time this year and it makes it so much easier to pull out the few weeds that might break through!!! I love it! Also, for a cheaper method - newspaper can be used in place of the fabric. Just make sure to apply multiple papers (like an entire section). My sis used this on her veggie garden and has had no weeds this year.

You can buy a pump up sprayer which can be used to spread ant poison, weed killer, fungicide, liquid fertilizer, bleach, etc. And yes, cedar and cypress mulch, etc, can attract termits. I use oak leaves in our flower beds. Also, gasoline isn't the best thing for ants and it contaminates our groundwater. But I guess a little gas on an antbed can't compete with all of the oil and gas runoff from gas stations, parking lots and highways. But it is good to try to be responsible. I met a guy once who told me he changed his oil and then poured the old oil down his sink. That is one of the stupidest tales I have ever been told.

And yes, landscape fabric is just about the best solution, but you it isn't as easy to put down in a flowerbed that is already established. It is easiest in a new flowerbed. Personally I have never used landscape fabric. It can get in the way when you dig in the flowerbed.

what they had been doing here was taking a bucket from one ant hill, and a bucketfull of ants and dirt from another ant hill, and trading them. the other ants all kill the queen of the other nests.

it worked for a long time, then the ants musta made friends, and it stopped working.

those ant hills are like sand traps. i'm just gonna start teeing off of them.

Which do fire ants like less: Grits or oatmeal?

Grits for us southerners. Oatmeal if you live north of the Macon-Dixon line.
