Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

I am just starting my garden. I would like to go chemical free, but already I have 2 fire-ant hills that I need to get rid of. Does anyone know of anything that Ican do to get rid of fire ants that does not require the use of chemicals?-thanks!

thanks everyone for all of your helpful suggestions! I have tried a more natural solution that an elderly farmer down the street told me: I can't believe that I did not try it before because it is so simple. He said to simply kick the mound or poke it with a stick and the ants all move elsewhere. It really works and they don't just move over in the garden, they actually leave the entire area. So far this has worked great. Thanks again to all!
