Here in Hawaii the fire ants are so small they can`t be seen but when the burning begins there is nothing to stop the burn but taking a cold shower. Getting the ground soaked is not an option. It rains extremely hard twice daily and the ants hang out on all plants and majorly in the banana tree leaves. I brush by them almost daily coming to the house. Anyone out there know how to kill them? They seem to live out their lives there. And there may be 3-4 colonies per Banana tree.
