Hunt County Master Gardener Byron Chitwood says fire ants can be combatted with what's called the "Texas Two-Step" method. Step one is less well-known -- spreading fire-ant bait over the entire yard. Step two is more familiar -- placing the bait on top of individual mounds. The Master Gardeners are hosting a tour starting at 9 a.m. Saturday (June 2), including the Heritage Garden in downtown Greenville. Tickets are for sale at the Hunt County Agrilife Extension office on Washington Street.
