Hi everyone,

Has anyone heard of or seen any models of using fire ants to till garden
beds?  They make the soil so loose and friable-similar to pigs.  I was
thinking it might be possible to bait fire ants to an area that I want to
convert to growing area by leaving something sugary on the ground and then
letting them do their work.  Has anyone tried this?  Success?  Disaster?
