      A:  Hi Leonce. Thank you for shopping at The Home Depot. Once you have applied the Spectracide 3 lb. Ant Shield Insect Killer Granules to a damp surface, the chemical in the granules to a damp surface, the chemicals will start to disperse. Only light watering is needed if the area treated dries out. Re-apply after it rains. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

          It worked somewhat. it didn't totally get rid of them but it did help keep the ants out of the house and it did reduce their numbers. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars out of 5. The product seems to give you the impression that it will kill all of them and it didn't.
