Thanks for your inquiry regarding the fire ants. Due to the above average rainfall amounts this past summer and fall, increased fire ant infestations above ground have been prevalent throughout most of North Texas. We currently treat our developed park properties and athletic fields on a regular basis (which was quite a challenge the past six months due to the higher than usual infestations). However, we do not treat medians or right of way areas due to the acreage involved and costs that would be associated with treating these areas.
If you would like to discuss further, please contact me.
Superintendent of Parks
