Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yapper THE BEST FIRE ANT KILLER BAR NONE!
We live in the Arizona high desert and we have fire ants here... and they were spreading like crazy. We tried literally everything until we tried this, none of it worked. First time out Ortho Orthene worked amazingly and FAST! Sprinkle it and it's done! It also works great on black ants here too. This eliminated ALL ants from our property. Other products we tried in the past it was like chasing them around the yard. This DOES get the queen and the whole colony. We will never be without this product again! And... we can walk in our yard again without being stung, and our dog can relax in the yard without being stung too. Thank you ORTHO company... PLEASE do not change a thing about this wonderful product, it works GREAT!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Justaregularguy Smells so bad you'll think it also killed an animal
I agree this stuff works but be warned about the smell. You will think you have a dead animal nearby. That's what've thought the next day but it was this product. Threw it away the next day. There has to be a alternative to this that doesn't ruin your patio time. Even after hosing it down it still stinks bad....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Pretty good fire ant killer
This product seems to take care of individual fire ants colonies very quickly. Just sprinkle on lightly around the mound and surrounding area. They come swarming out and take the bait and seem to disappear next day. The only problem I have seen is that a new colony will pop up in the yard days later several feet away from the one the was treated. I don't know if that is a completely new group of ants or survivors from the treated colony.
Product smells awful so keep sealed up somewhere safe.
Container is a little difficult to use without getting on yourself. I would suggest some type of twist top with shaker holes. Container is only less than half full and seems like you are not getting a good deal because of that.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ArtProf 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!

Applying the product is simple. Only takes a Tablespoon sprinkled over the ant mound. However, you do need to monitor the mound for a week or two. My ants returned twice. Plus, when you open the container, be careful of your location. I opened the product in my garage to take to my yard. The horrible smell within the container remained in the garage for a week. It smelled potent. I would recommend the product, because I did observe it work. But you still need to monitor.
