Fossil shell flour - diatomaceous earth - is a great alternative. OMRI approved for use in organic farming, we keep a 50lb bag on hand. We put in on and in chickens cats and dogs, and its safe for human consumption. Will kill bugs outside (fleas ticks mites) and inside (intestinal parasites). It cuts them up. Even the fire ants hate it. It won't kill them but will keep them at bay.
Re horned toad - will they eat fire ants?
