Problems with harvester ants

In Texas we have fire ants.  Horrible creatures with a bad bite. 

I have used grits before like the other person suggested.  But I used the 
instant/quick grits.  The grits are dehydrated and will expand in the ants 
stomach and then the ant is deceased.   I hope this will work for you, of 
course you couldn't put the grits where it is wet then the grits would 
become hydrated.  The worker ants will also carry the grits back to the 
queen, without a queen there are no ants (normally).
