Kill Fire Ants,
All Outdoor Ants For Up To 3 Months with
Demon EC, Talstar
|To kill fire ants and control them throughout the year:
Drench each ant mound and broadcast Talstar
This program may be implemented 1 to 3 times per year.
- Drench (do not spray!)
all existing mounds with Demon EC or
Talstar concentrate. At least one gallon of
finished solution is required for fire ant mounds, 1/2 gallon for smaller ones. A
good rule of thumb is to use one gallon of solution per foot of mound diameter. For example, a huge mound that is three
feet wide (at its base) would require three gallons of finished solution. This
ensures that you kill ants deep in the colony structure. Keep pets and children away
from treated areas until dry.
- Broadcast entire area with
Talstar granules. Do not spot treat.
Broadcasting this professional granule with an accurate, rotary Granule
Spreader or broadcast spreader ensures that all ants on the surface will contact
your product. After applying your granules, apply water to the treated area.
Granular insecticides are designed to be watered in; otherwise, the active ingredients are
left on the surface, exposed to damaging ultraviolet rays and heat. Water will also
help place the granules onto the surface of the soil, instead of allowing them to just
rest on blades of grass. Read and follow all label instructions; keep pets and
children off of all treated areas until dry. Talstar granules pose less hazards to
people, pets, wildlife and the environment than Dursban, Diazinon, etc., but you should
still follow good safety practices!
