Customer Questions & Answers

Does this work against killing roaches and keeping them out of your hone????? I am DESPERATE

Asked by: Vanesss
Go find Viper RTU. This product is premixed and is safe for pet, people, and plants but kills about anything you have problems with. It may take a few times treating your house and it's $20 a gallon but cheaper than an exterminator!

Orthene 12 oz. Fire Ant Killer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 564.

The previous ant killers just seemed to not work well any more. This stuff is great. It works very quickly to kill the ants. You just sprinkle it on a dry mound and let it sit for about 24 hours and then you can wash the remaining powder away. The only drawback is the odor. Seriously, it smells like someone vomited in a trash dumpster in the middle of the summer. The smell is revolting. But I guess the ants love it. It is worth dealing with the smell for a day to get rid of the ants. It won't stink up the whole yard, but lean back when you sprinkle it out and don't breathe it in or get it on your clothes. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I have for years used this product to treat fire ant mounds successfully. When the neighbor who lives next to me needed about 20 mounds treated in her yard, I used this. All were successfully neutralized. What I like about this product is that it does not require watering in and works very quickly. I cut a 1/2 x 1/2 inch square from the edge of the paper seal to allow for more controlled sprinkling of the powder. I sprinkle some over the mound and poke the mound with a wire. The ants come rushing out to their doom. I sprinkle some powder directly on the ants and if and when they go back into the mound, they take the powder with them, killing the queen. By morning the mound is done.

The other products only just move them around. Or, require you to water them in to work. This one only requires you to sprinkle some on top of the mound. But, boy does it stink! The smell is horrible. There is another similar white power product that does not smell and does as good a job. It's made by Bayer. Try that one first, if you can find it. If not: hold your nose, do not open indoors and use the Ortho product.
