Fire Ant Control Question and Answers

Saturday, 2. January 2010 16:20

Fire Ant Pest Control, Question and AnswerQuestion:

I generally use granular bait for ant control both indoors and out. But I have a customer with a large (close to an acre) area behind the main back yard. The area was used as a horse pasture / riding area, but no horses now. It’s got significant pressure from ants. Some of the mounds are visible, but many are not due to the short grass. The pasture gets flood irrigated regularly. I was wondering about the effectivness of using something like Talstar PL on this large area. It would be easier to spread than the very light bait granule and would be watered in. I think the bait would work given enough time before watering, but it’s more difficult to apply and considerably more costly. What are your thoughts… Thanks – Mike, AZ

Crazy Ants in the Kitchen

Ants in Kitchen; Food FightQuestion:

What is the best way to control crazy ants in a kitchen area? They are first seen by the window above the sink and then all over counters and cabinets. – Kevin, VT


Crazy Ants are given this wild name because of their rapid, zig-zag fashion of running around. They are very long legged, giving them an even greater ability to run quickly. They apparently cannot tolerate cold temperatures very well, and so are more common in the southern states, but when occurring in northern states like Vermont are prone to entering structures for the winter. They will then nest in voids or even the soil of potted plants, and forage throughout the building. They will feed on sugars or protein, but appear to be particularly partial to the proteins – greases and animal matter – so the kitchen is a great place to find them, as well as around pet foods.
