Answer: 
No. Absolutely not. This product is for outdoor use only. It has a strong smell and would be, in my opinion, a health hazard. Use an insect/ant spray that is designed for indoor use.

Answer: 
Don't mix with water. Apply Ortho Orthene Fire Ant Killer1 in early morning or late evening when ants are most active. . Avoid disturbing the mounds before, during, or after the application. Gently sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of dry powder over each mound. Do not water in. Avoid applying during heavy due or just before rain is expected.

Answer: 
Boric acid is the best treatment for roaches, but it takes a couple of weeks to show effects. However, the roaches carry it to their nest and other roaches eat it there. Check label for Sevin.

Answer: 
I have dusted my clothing with the product and had not problem eliminating the smell with normal machine washing, I would only say maybe your using to much or not mixing it with the dirt. I know the directions say do not mix but I think that works best. It does stink when it used.

Answer: 
Mehdi, the odor will dissipate with time. Watering or rain will increase the odor, so make sure to avoid watering the areas. Once the ants have died, mixing the product with soil or covering with soil may help to reduce the smell.

You may have used too much, it should clear up after about 2 weeks. Watering will initially heighten the smell, but it may accelerate the dissipation.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 208 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Totally Confused I am 76 years old and I have fought fire ants for years. Someone recommended the Orthene Fire Ant killer. I applied on one bed and another bed 10 feet away under the same circumstances. Next day I was shocked to see what amounted to about 1/2 cup of dead fire ants lying in a pile on bed A. I stirred the bed and did not find one live ant. I then searched the bed 10 feet away, bed B and could not find one dead ant. I stirred the bed and the ants poured out. Why did I have such great results with the one bed and zero results on the other? Both beds are fire ant beds and I applied at the same time under the same circumstances. Again, I am completely confused. I applied to bed A and bed B within minutes of one another. I know fire ants and both beds are fire ant beds. What could have happened. I have applied once again to bed B so I am eager to see what happens. I am a retired college art instructor and a very good designer. I would like to see a better way to dispense the dust without using my plastic spoon. I think Ortho should at least include a plastic spoon of the proper dimensions. Has anyone else had an experience similar to mine? I own a Facebook group with more than 7000 members and I am confused as to how to report back to the group.. Bed A, 100% effective. Bed B, 100% ineffective.. By the way, the smell was not that bad! Are we a bunch of wimps <G> I was in the US Army and a does of the chemical I encountered would have you guys dropping like flies! May 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST product to get rid of Fire Ants Had several mounds in my horse pasture- one was huge. I used Orthene on them and the ants were gone the next day!. That was several weeks ago and I have not found anymore anthills since. Other products I have used have not worked as immediately and I would find new ant hills a few days later. I love that you don't have to "water" it in- just sprinkle and go! Great product! June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works, works and oh it works You can buy less expensive mound killer and watch them start a new hole 6 inches form the product over and over again or you can buy this and be done with it the first time around. June 23, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product!! this works as advertised, just sorry it took so long to get this. I live in the Midwest and could not find this anywhere. ordered online from Georgia?? This product even works on other ants as well!! Highly recommend... June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very effective! I have used this for a couple of years now. In most cases even large mounds are eliminated in 24 hours. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works without fail When we moved into our home, we had at least 40-50 ant mounds in our front and back yard. Since we have young children, I wanted to be sure to take care of this promptly. While the broadcast ant killers work, they didn't seem to kill off the existing mounds. I bought this, and placed it on every mound. A few of them would relocate, but noticeably smaller mounds each time. I usually just sprinkle it along the top, and if it's the early morning or late evening hours, the fire ants will come out ferociously. It says 3-7 days to take effect, but I've never seen any mound still active the next day after application. Don't get it wet, from dew, rain, or sprinklers though, as that will impact the ants' desire for it. April 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works Been using this for years. Great for when you're outside and run into a fire ant bed and don't want to wait 3 days for baits to take hold. Just sprinkle it on, have a cup of coffee, and the ants are gone by the time you get back. Ants are all over my acreage, so whether they die or just move, I don't know. I don't care as long as they are not in my way. May 17, 2016
