How do I control fire ants?

Baiting is a preventive treatment and if done 3-4 times a year, new nests will be unable to form.

Drenching should be done when you currently have active nests which need to be eliminated immediately. This is generally what you should do when people or pets are either threatened or have gotten stung by existing ants. Since drenching mounds works so quickly, it's advised when live fire ants are active.
