SPECIFIC USE DIRECTIONS
FIRE ANT CONTROL
Award Fire Ant Bait is slow acting but very effective for control of fire ants. Following application, Award Fire Ant Bait is collected by worker ants and distributed throughout the colony. Within 4 - 8 weeks, there is considerable ant mortality and a continual decline of the fire ant colony.
Applications made in the fall may take up to 12 weeks before decline of the colony occurs due to cooler weather.
