Frequently Asked Questions
How long does ant bait take to work?
Given that ant bait is intended to be disguised as food, it has a built-in delay that gives foraging ants time to take it back to the mound to share. Once the queen and other ants eat it, the whole mound dies. Typically, the bait will begin to kill the queen within one week of application and will kill the colony within two weeks of application.
Is AMDRO safe to use around livestock?
After applying AMDRO Kills Ants Fire Ant Yard Treatment Bait and AMDRO Fire Ant Bait we recommend that you do not graze or feed treated lawn or sod clippings to livestock.
IS AMDRO safe to use around pets?
While instructions vary by product, it is recommended that you do not apply the product while pets are in the treatment area. However, you can let your pets back onto treated areas once the dust has settled.
Why is fire ant bait better than a contact killer?
Bait is considered to be a more effective method of killing fire ants, as opposed to contact killers, because ants will share the bait with the queen and other ants, killing the entire colony. Once the queen and other ants eat it, the whole mound dies. Alternatively, contact killers will only kill fire ants that come into direct contact with the product.
