Living in Houston and being allergic to mosquito bites caused me to create my own custom blend for bug bites. This blend is the ONLY solution that has worked for my family to relieve the itch, speed healing and stop our bites from blistering. (YES! They are THAT bad!) It has also worked for us on fire ant bites and spider bites. Hope this helps you too!!
Simply pour 2 cups of club soda directly in the center of a fire ant mound. The carbon dioxide in the water is heavier than air and displaces oxygen which suffocates the queen and the other ants. The whole colony will be dead within about two days. Each mound must be treated individually and a one liter bottle of club soda will kill 2 to 3 mounds.
