I have recently gone organic and need to know what type of mollasses I should be using. I have been using an unsulfured type bought from the local Wal Mart. Also, does mollasses have any effect on fire ants in any dilution? If so, what does it do to them?
if you just want mollasses(dry) cheapest prob will be a feed store.
forty lb. bags . liquid mollasses, put a little in with sprays helps
promote microbio activity. use some in fire ant drench.
hope this helps. a lot more uses on this forum. lots of luck
Go to the Lowe's store there in Killeen. They have molasses by the gallon. Fire ants hate molasses. You can chase them out of your compost pile with a good dousing. I have killed off fire ant mounds with a mix of molasses, corn meal and manure compost tea. Mix at 1 cup molasses, 2 cups corn meal and a cup of compost tea. Add these to 1 gallon of water and drown the fire ant mound. If you want to make the kill immediate add 1-2 oz. of d-limonene like Orange TKO to the mix. Regular application (every 2 weeks) of molasses to your yard at about 2-4 oz. per gallon of water is a great way to keep the microbial activity high and the ants at bay. It sure worked for me! I haven't had fire ants in years. They just can't seem to get a mound established in my healthy soil. Try it and let me know how it works.
