Restore Bare Places From Empty Ant Hills

Q: How do you restore the bare places from fire ant hills in my centipede lawn that have been vacated after using ant bait?

A: Wait until early May when the soil is warm and drag a rake a couple times across each mound. Sprinkle centipede grass seeds very lightly over the spot then use the back of the rake to firm the soil onto the seeds. Water to keep the area moist but not soggy. The grass should germinate and spread quickly.
