The Mississippi Farmers Market will be offering fire ant killer mound treatment to the public on Saturday, April 10, from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The three-pound bags of fire ant killer will be given out while supplies last.

“Come on out to the Mississippi Farmers Market,” said Mississippi Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Andy Gipson. “Spring is here and as people begin working on their yards and gardens, you can find plants and other gardening needs right here in downtown Jackson. This Saturday, we’re especially proud to give out fire ant killer to the public. Anyone who needs to get rid of these nuisance insects can pick up a bag, while supplies last.”

The Mississippi Farmers Market, a division of the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce, is open every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. For additional information about the Mississippi Farmers Market, visit, download the Mississippi Farmers Market mobile app, or follow the Mississippi Farmers Market on Facebook.
