The bad side of Texas rain...

They seem to swarm after rains and that is not good in my yard as my little girl is severely allergic to their bites.

I was out in my flower beds trying to break up the mulch, which has packed down from composting, and I found huge fire ant dens! I am talking 2-3 ft across dens!
One has taken over my bird bath and surrounding area. One is smack dab in the middle of my yard and I am thankful I did not mow and step in it. Been there down that. Got more bites than I could count before I could pull off my sneakers. OUCH!

So today I head to Home Depot to buy ant killer...
and pray that next week's predicted rain will not just wash it all away thus repeating the cycle
