: OK i know i may be beating a dead horse here, but let me try one more time. I have a rather large colony of red harvester ants coming out of the ground on my home site. there is a small area of dirt in the back of the concrete slab. if i dont find some natural way to control them then it will be the exterminator who will do it. i geuss there are no other lizards that will eat them other texas horned lizards and if no one can make a sugestion on how to move them they are going to be exterminated, so come people give me some ideas please!

:Mike, you just have to check about permits for HLs. I doubt that this is sufficient reason to get permits though. You could purchase, I hate this idea, Desert HLs for the "job" but then you have to have a large enclosure to contain and maintain the HLs you purchase. You might consider catching the ants and making them available to folks with HLs, for a small cost. Just be careful with the ant "round-up" if you do. If that is not an option, then your options are narrowed. Lester G. Milroy III
