These things are producing faster than we can keep up with them.

I'm afraid to poison the mounds. When the chickens roam they have access to the dead mounds and I don't want them to eat the poison we are using on the ants so I stopped using poison.

Anyone have to deal with this before? I know if it gets to bad the fire ants can kill the chickens.

Gross as it sounds......
Start urinating in the mounds.
Assuming your in an area you can do it outside.
I had a two mounds, no idea where they came from,
I did it everyday for a week or so, just when I needed
and I was outside. The mounds are gone.

Borax should kill them out too, along with Diatomaceous earth.
It is harmless to the chickens.
