The effective combination fire ant product, Extinguish® Plus fire ant bait controls and kills existing ants while preventing new colonies from forming. Containing both the powerful adulticide, Hydramethylnon to provide a quick knockdown and insect growth regulator (IGR), (S)-methoprene to affect the queen’s reproductive system, this powerful fire ant control tool provides a unique two-way killing action.
OUTDOOR: Apply when ants are active and foraging (when soil temperature is greater than 60º F). To determine if ants are foraging (feeding), place a potato chip near the mound and observe if ants begin feeding. Do not apply product if ants do not feed within a few minutes. Repeat observation at a later time to evaluate if ants are feeding. Apply product when feeding occurs on the potato chip. Repeat applications as needed.
INDOOR: Using a duster or similar equipment, apply bait ONLY into cracks and crevices, or other inaccessible areas such as, but not limited to, structural voids, unfinished attics or crawl spaces. Apply 0.25 - 0.5 ounce (2 teaspoons – 1 tablespoon) per crack, crevice, or other inaccessible areas where ants are entering the structure or where ants are nesting. Apply evenly in unfinished attics and crawl spaces at a rate of 0.25 ounce (2 teaspoons) per 100 square feet only if the space is secured or otherwise inaccessible to children or pets.
