Yes, if you really want to get rid of roaches for good. Sprinkle it in places that you see roaches at all the time. It works guaranteed.

can I mix it with water and spray on with hose sprayer. Trying to keep ants out of my pavers.

if so, how much powder to make 4 oz. concentrate?
Asked by: Ron
I wouldn't recommend water to deliver it to ants. For them it's normally delivered in fine powder form so that the smallest ants can pick it up on their feet or bodies and hopefully carry it to the Queen. The active ingredient is Acephate, (O, S-Dimethyl Acetyphosphoramidothioate ). Acephate is of the Organophosphate family of chemicals. It will still work if dissolved in water, but it will be diluted and thus less effective. When acephate comes in contact with an insect's (NOT a mammal's) body, it bonds with the enzymes in an insect's nervous system that shut a nerve's contraction signal to muscles OFF. When the insect's nerves can no longer stop firing signals for the insect's muscles to contract, the insect will convulse as every muscle in its body fights every other muscle to move its limbs and organs. Acephate in even higher concentrations is used in Wasp Spray. That's why the wasp literally falls from the sky the moment it comes in contact with the spray. It can't control its wings. That fast action stops the "angry" swarm of wasps from stinging us. Watch the ants or wasps when they come in contact with acephate and you'll see its affect. Thank goodness it doesn't affect our mammalian nervous system in the same way.

Most ant mound treatments cause ants to just move to another location. Its more expensive, but, you only sprinkle a tablespoon of it over the mound without disturbing it, how easy is that? And it kills the entire mound down to 9ft, including the queen

Let me be clear….this product definitely works, however, it has an AWFUL odor that will remain in effect for over a week without being rained in. You DO NOT want to get it on your hands. Some of the other products on the market work just as well, without the odor. Were it not for the odor, I would 5

Trying to rid yard of those horrible fire ants. It is a slow process but have been winning the battle little by little using this product. My dogs always get the ants on them and bring them into the house. This product seems to work best.

I can't stand the child proof packaging that contains the product. I have arthritis and can not open it. I will have to find someone who can open it. Then I will have to leave it open for next use.

Put in lawn, perimeter of the house, or anywhere you are seeing pests. The only thing we don’t like is the smell. Wear mask and gloves when putting it out.
