“Ants build mounds directly under fence lines where they know they’re less likely to be disturbed. If the mounds build up high enough, so they’re over the bottom wire, the wire will rust in the moist dirt and eventually break,” says Bill Boyce, Texarkana, Ark.
So, he decided to build what he calls a “weapon of war” to reach under fences to destroy big ant piles. “I call it a ‘mound pusher’ and when lowered to the ground, it will shove the mound away from the fence. I built it with a 5-in. I-beam and mounted it to a quick-attach plate that can be used on a front-end loader or skid steer.”
Chain hooks and lifting eyes welded to the front cross member allow it to be used as a lift boom, too.
