HOW TO KILL FIRE ANTS
Although fire ants may come into the house foraging for food, mounds are most often encountered in lawns and around the edges of sidewalks, driveways or other paved areas.
Bengal UltraDust Fire Ant Killer is the most effective solution. It is odorless, water repellent and does not clump or absorb moisture. The effectiveness is not ruined by light rain since the product is water repellent but heavy rains may wash the powder off the mound.
Only a teaspoon is required on each mound. Most people use too much and product is wasted. Because the active ingredient gives off few vapors and is in such a small concentration in the product, UltraDust is not a repellent like many other fire ant products.
