The types of pesticides we use to treat Little Fire Ants
Are very effective and should be the #1 Choice for Little Fire Ant Management
THE ANTS DO THE WORK FOR YOU
Baits are attractive to the ants and slow acting enough that they have time to bring them back to the nest to be shared. There's no way to find every nest on your property. LFA don't have mound nests; they set up camp in ready made homes and queens don't mind living together.
LESS PESTICIDE USE
Baits are mostly made up of attractive ant foods (like peanut butter) with a small amount of active ingredient(s) mixed inside. There's no need to spray the whole yard with chemicals when there are more effective methods available.
Compliment bait treatments but should Never be spread at the same time
FAST ACTING RELIEF
Barriers create invisible perimeter protection that lasts for a few months. They keep most insects from successfully crossing over them. It can be used to keep LFA from getting back into the house. It can also create quarantine areas for new items that you suspect could be carrying LFA.
SEPARATE TREATMENT DATES
Barriers compliment bait treatments but should NOT be applied on the same day. We want the LFA to be able to find & take the bait back to the nest; not stopped by the barrier. It is best to lay down a barrier closer to two (2) wks after a bait treatment.
