My husband and I always sprinkle the ground we set our tent up on with Borax (I bring about two boxes depending on the size of the tent) and, in our experience, it keeps all bugs away, including the fire ants.  

I’ve never encountered wasps at war, though. 

I like to keep extra Borax on hand to re-sprinkle the perimeter of the tent after rain, also, friends will need to borrow some. :)

The Falcon Banner has posted a new item, 'Fire Ants and Red Wasps at Gulf! O My!'

Information has been received that fire ants and red wasps are abundant at Gulf Wars site this year. Public areas have been treated, but camping areas have not. Folks are encouraged to bring their own fire ant bait and wasp spray.
