Product Overview

The AMDRO Fire Ant Killer Bait kills the queen fast and destroys the fire ant mound. Once you distribute a circle of fire ant bait around the mound, it is only a matter of time before the worker fire ants share it with the queen. After the queen eats it and dies, her colony dies with her. The ant granules are designed for individual mound treatment but can also be used for broadcast application in outdoor areas, for total ant control.

Amdro for fire ants
Read all the instructions before you plan your attack. Remember to not disturb the actual hill around the ant tunnels as you spread the Amdro around the area. Don't spread when you are going to water or rain is expected. Expect to repeat the treatment more than once. Some of the hills are gone in a matter of a few days, others are more persistent. There can be multiple queens in one ant hill and if they are not all dead, the ants won't be gone. Repeat the treatments in between your watering schedule as new hills reappear or persistent ones remain. Be vigilant, as the ants seems to spread rapidly if not destroyed. One hill last year turned into 8-10 this year. Buy the large container!

I had fire ants in my front yard and I used Amdro Fire ant bait and works greats. I applied it as instructed on the label. I saw some dead ants after the first application. I still saw a few live ant around it so I applied again on the 2nd day. Now my yard is clear of all fire ants. Still has left over bait so I can use for next year.
