Help! I have ants in my Black Kow bag.

zackey(GA 8b)April 7, 2014

We bought a bag of Black Kow and it has sat on the ground for awhile. Fire ants are now enjoying it. Is there any way I can get them out and not pollute it? I want to use it in my veggie garden.

Spread it out thinly on a plastic tarp in the sun for a few days and they will leave. If unseasonable cold there right now spread another piece of clear plastic on top of it to generate more heat.

Thank you!! It is 78 now. 70 tomorrow because of rain. I'll do that once the rain stops!
