Greetings!

Was hopping to plant the seed of a thread dedicated to the little fire ant (auropunctata of the wasmannia).

if you ever climed a tree or left some coconut oil on the ground you have a familiarity of this being.

as a Em-1 advocate, and passionate microbial researcher. i'm drawn to biological insecticides that targets this invasion.

open to discussion.
i will update this thread with findings as time progresses.

Howdy Erick, welcome to permies !
So are you using the fungi against the ants?
First time I ever saw this was while watching a video by paul stamets.
Are you familiar with his work?
