Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

AMDRO Ant Block Home Perimeter Ant Bait gives you the power to kill listed ant species outside before they enter your home. Once you lay the bait, worker ants carry it back to the mound thinking its food. Once the queen eats it, the colony is doomed because she can no longer produce worker ants. Use it on lawns, landscaped areas or around structures. Each bottle contains enough bait to treat the average home up to six times.

  • Kills ants outside, before they come inside
  • Kills carpenter ants and 14 other ant species
  • Apply around the perimeter of your home
  • Covers 1,080 lin. ft. enough to treat the perimeter of an average home six times
  • At a rate of 4 oz. per 180 linear feet, apply in a band 1 ft. wide around the outside perimeter of the building

Answer: 
Unless your pet is an insect this will be safe. A pet would have to consume a lot of this product to have any effect. It doesn't take much of this stuff to cover a 200 foot perimeter.

Answer: 
I doubt it would be safe for pets. But you don't need much to kill the ants. You can fence off the tiny area and just sprinkle a few granules around the hole(s). The ants will take the granules down to their queen within a day or two. A container of Amdro should last you a few years.

This product is designed to look like the ants actual eggs. If you've ever disturbed an ant hill and saw the tiny eggs exposed, very quickly the ants grab the eggs and take them deeper into the ground. The pesticide eggs are meant to confuse the ants and get picked up and taken into the ground. The directions also recommend only sprinkling a little bit. My problem is actual ant hills, so I disturb the top of the hill and sprinkle the product. I can actually watch them grab the pesticide eggs with the real eggs and take them below ground. I would feel safe using around my dogs b/c it doesn't take long for the ants to take into the ground and so there is no spray or residue that stays on the ground as it is taken into the hill by the ants themselves.

I would think not. Should you use this product, I would recommend spreading the granules only where the dogs cannot consume it. Consider perhaps placing the granules in tins or someplace/something that the dogs cannot get to/consume but the ants can. You could also place it above the reach of the dogs, since the ants will climb to the granules to consume it. Caution that the granules are light enough Read More

Hello, It's not "good for" animals per se' but the main chemical is a compound made to mimic that of what's found in nature but purified or concentrated as it is in a greater amount. the amount needed to hurt an ant is very small and this is also very detrimental to fish. It works by metabolic inhibition and actually destroys the ants at the cellular level after ingestion of the bait. While it could hurt larger animals in larger doses it isn't made to be attractive to dogs and cats and will likely be ignored while fish breath the water and no choice upon introduction...
Oral, rat: Lethal Dose for 50% is 1100–1300 mg/kg.
Oral, dog: Lethal Dose for 50% is above 28000 mg/kg.
Hydramethylnon is especially toxic to fish;

Answer: 
Hello,
The active ingredient in Amdro Ant Block is hydramethylnon. This active ingredient has a very low toxicity to people, animals and birds. There is an exception though with fish. If you happen to have a pond in your yard be careful not to get any of the granules in the pond as it is highly toxic to fish. When it is used according to the label we wouldn't expect any problems for your dogs.
Thank you

Hi Amanda,
Amdro is very effective and safe when used as directed. It does not take much Amdro to control ants, and it would require a heavy dose of the product to harm an animal.
Apply Amdro to specific areas and monitor your dogs when they investigate those areas. My dogs have never been interested in Amdro to the point where I think that they would ingest it.

Answer: 
Hello,
Amdro Ant Block is labeled to kill carpenter ants. When using Amdro Ant Block you will get the best results when the granules stay dry. The carpenter ants will not find the bait as appealing if it gets wet because the corn grit used to make the granule will break down.

Answer: 
No, the little ants that bite are a problem, as I have those too! Try using Spectracide as a perimeter defense around the house, and directly apply around perimeter of ant hills (harder to find because of size). Spectracide has to be reapplied after a rain event as the little suckers come back readily. The Andro wont work because the pellet size is too big for the little ants.

If I see an ant problem and the grandchildren are coming I sprinkle it through out the grass and let it sit a day.
Seems to take care of any ant problem. I only have to use it 2 - 3 times a year. It REALLY works!

Indeed, water by rain / sprinklers will be your enemy with this product.

Therefore, if you're using it preventively for ants that may wander towards your perimeter and need it to remain potent for long periods it will need to be kept dry but if you are out to kill existing mounds apply near the entry points and they will be eliminated and there will no longer be a need for the perimeter treatment. I have issues in the spring and it rained almost daily. Every morning for 4 days I walked the perimeter while sprinkling the product near the base of my foundation and one side of my sidewalk. I sprinkled a higher concentration when I came across an ant trail. I saw no ant trails inside the perimeter on day 3 So I sprinkled a much wider less concentrated path around 4' further into the yard and on day 4 I found they had gone into my mailbox so I killed those with raid then used this around the post and made a perimeter around the mail box for two days. After 3 months I have only found two ant trails since and both were eliminated after one treatment with a teaspoon full of the bait near the spot where they went from grass to concrete. All this and I still have half a container to go... Read Less

Answer: 
The pellets seem to get soggy after rain. I'm not sure it is as effective after it gets wets. The ants like to carry it off when it is dry. Also, I suspect the poison inside gets exposed when it gets wet and they ants avoid it. After each rain I reapplied, so to answer your question, I would turn OFF sprinklers for a few weeks or at least until activity stops.

Answer: 
Hello,
The Amdro Ant Block granule is made from corn grit. When it gets wet the bait becomes soggy and is not longer appealing to the ants. The longer you can keep the area dry the better the chances you have of the bait being picked up and carried back to the colony.

Answer: 
Hi Jack,
Amdro's bait will be washed away when it gets wet from rain or sprinklers. Re apply the Amdro after you water the lawn and after the chance of rain has passed.
Lawns benefit from less frequent, long duration watering. Water for 30 to 45 minutes in the morning twice per week. Apply Amdro in the afternoon or evening after watering.
