FIRE ANT MOUND TREATMENT
Apply 1/2 cup of this product per mound and then drench the mound with 1 to 2 gallons of water. The mound should be drenched with sufficient force to break its apex and allow the insecticide to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 to 80°F) or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Food utensils such as teaspoons and measuring cups must not be used for food purposes after use with insecticide.
INDUSTRIAL NON-AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS
Pad Mounted Electrical Sites: To reduce or prevent ant mound building activity on electrical pads, uniformly distribute 1.0 to 1.5 tablespoons (0.06 to 0.09 pounds) of this product per 4 square feet of mounting pad. Where existing transformers are completely or partially filled with soil excavated by resident ants, remove any fill and level the remaining soil prior to application. Food utensils such as tablespoons must not be used for food purposes after use in measuring pesticides.
NOTE: Electrical transformers appear to be more attractive to ants during the cooler months. For best results treat in the fall or early spring.
RESISTANCE: Some insects are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for control. Because the development of resistance cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your local or state pest management authorities for details.
If resistance to this product develops in your area, this product, or other products with a similar mode of action, may not provide adequate control. If poor performance cannot be attributed to improper application or extreme weather conditions, a resistant strain of insect may be present. If you experience difficulty with control and suspect that resistance is a reasonable cause, immediately consult your local company representative or pest management advisor for the best alternative method of control for your area.
