Fire Ant "Fire Ant's Nightmare"
Fire Ant Bait

Contains spinosad in a ready to use shaker bottle. Dead fire ants in 24 hrs. Can be used on residential lawn, ornamental plantings, around fruit & vegetable crops, greenhouses and other areas.

"Fire Ant's Nightmare" is attractive to foraging red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) and is readily taken back into the nest as food for the colony. The active ingredient in the bait is distributed throughout the colony, killing the ants including the queen. Fire ants that consume the bait will appear sick and lethargic within 12-24 hours. Dead ants will frequently be seen near treated mounds 24-36 hours after application. The entire colony, including the queen, will usually be controlled within 3 to 14 days after treatment, depending on environmental conditions. Control of extremely large colonies may take longer or may require reapplication. If reapplication is required, use recommended mound or broadcast application rates (information on the label) at intervals of no less than 14 days until control is achieved. Control may be slower with broadcast applications than with individual mound treatments.

Apply when ants are active (usually when temperatures are greater than 60°F). The best time to apply is in the cooler morning and late evening hours when fire ant foraging is at its peak. Tillage operations should be timed so as to avoid interference with foraging and consumption of the bait by fire ants. To prevent damage to seeds and seedling crops, apply 7 to 28 days before planting. To reduce stings during harvest or other activities, apply 7 to 28 days before the schedule activity.
