My grandfather saw something on television about a man who
has invented a device for killing fire ants with steam.  The
device is placed over the mound, and steam under high pressure
is released into the mound.  It supposedly kills all the ants,
even the queen.  I wonder how good this method works, and where
I can get more information on it.
