Glad I waited for that one. What an intellectual giant.

Melt 2,000 beer cans and pour the aluminum metal down the hole.
Wait a week to cool, dig up and wash off. Lots of YouTubes. Wonderful.

I wonder if ants have a thread somewhere called “How to deal with humans”

I reckon ants are pretty cool, and a highly successful organism.

Maybe a tad too much gasoline. Actually, there was no reason to have put a match to it. That much gasoline would have killed just about anything.

Dynamite and gasoline seems a bit excessive. I used to have to be on my best behaviour when mine visited or when we visited them.

All were huggers and capable of holding me in a smothering death grip. Some of them were kissers. The great variety often had whiskery chins.

How did my 6-year old self deal with them? Usually hid behind the sofa. wink

Years ago in Oklahoma I got rid af an established red ant hill in our back yard by pouring a pint bottle of household ammonia down it. I guess it gassed off and got to all the chambers in the nest. The ants vanished, and for a couple of years the area of the ant nest had the lushest, greenest grass in the yard.

There’s no way of knowing unless you know this guy but my mind questions if he has a septic system and was there a crack in the the system. Methane gas could cause this type of uplifting.

I think merely gasoline could have caused the explosion. Don't ask me how I know!

Sometimes I think I'm the only person on the planet that tolerates ants (outside, not in.) Even my Kom-bi-ya (?) passive hubby has been known to squish ants.

Sometimes we get those big flying ants that drop their wings & look for your stuff made of wood to eat. They get squashed. Little ants in the garden are tilling the soil.

Oh I like ants, just not destructive feral ones (Pheidole megacephala, Monomorium destructor, etc).

As Bob wrote, they till the soil, literally. They bring nutrients back up to the surface where plants can access them.

I used to assassinate feral ants for a living in Darwin (ant central). My boss had this book in the office which I used to pore over. I keep my eye out for a second hand copy at the Lifeline book fairs.

I suspect many of the Southerners on BHO can tell us about fire ants....

I have been especially plagued with zillions of tiny black ants all summer and fall. A couple of days ago I finally moved a pile of my cedar fence lumber from its location I stacked out last fall. I found the source the source of those ants. zillions occupying all the gaps in the stack and all the soft spots in the lumber. I think a few hundred found their way under my clothes in that move.
I hope they traveled a ways to find a new home. Brad

The more I watch that video, the more it bothers me that his dogs were in the yard.

Powdered sugar and washing Borax, 50/50.
Liquid clothes detergent is something else they can't cope with.

Ha! Ha! Bill!  I'm not that much of a tree hugger! I love to kill nasty bugs!

One time I made my own napalm by melting styrofoam coffee cups in a tin can of gas .  

There was an underground yellow jacket nest & we poured it in & lit it up. It was giving off lots of black smoke & there was zero wasps. All Dead. I figured it needed more gas & caught a full can of gas on fire!

I kicked at the nozzle & it flew off & I ran over & stomped it out. That's all that happened!

I heard somebodies Mom said that " Girls are expensive & Boys are hard to keep alive"
