TO CONTROL FIRE ANTS

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

OUTDOOR PEST CONTROL:

For contact and residual spray, refer in the label for the mixing procedure with water.

For heavy infestations, use the 0.50% dilution. For lighter infestations and for maintenance purposes, use the 0.25% dilution. One gallon of finished spray is sufficient to treat 1580 linear feet with a 6 inch spray band.

TO CONTROL FIRE ANTS

Dilute 2 tablespoons of this product in 1 gallon of water. Apply 1 gallon of this solution as a gentle rain to each fire ant mound using a sprinkler can. Thoroughly wet the mound and surrounding area to a 4 foot diameter. For best results, apply in cool weather, 65-80°F, or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Do not disturb the mound prior to treatment. If possible, treat all mounds in the vicinity and treat all colonies which may not as yet have constructed a mound. Larger quantities of solution can be prepared for multiple mound treatments. Equipment to deliver the diluted product as a gentle rain at the rate of 1 gallon per mound is still required. Do not use equipment that produces a pressurized spray as pressurized sprays may disturb fire ants and cause migration, reducing product effectiveness.
