Well the fire ants are on the move again.... the USDA has just expanded the fire ant quarantine zone in Oklahoma and Tennessee. Quarantine areas are being established in the following counties of Oklahoma: Atoka, Coal, Cotton, Garvin, Jackson, Jefferson, LeFlore, Murray, Pontotoc, Pushmataha, Stephens and Tillman. In Tennessee: portions of Sevier and White counties; additional areas of Cumberland, Humphreys and Williamson counties; and all of Coffee, Marshall, and Maury counties.
