Extinguish® Plus Fire Ant Control
Extinguish® Plus Fire Ant Bait pest control product is highly attractive to fire ants. It combines the killing speed of an adulticide (Hydramethylnon) and the long-lasting control of an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) (S)-Methoprene. The IGR sterilizes the queen and prevents rebound, while the fast-acting adulticide kills problem worker ants. This two-way action ensures complete control of fire ants.
How It Works
Spring and early fall are the best times to apply Extinguish Plus, but you should treat any time fire ants are active. The two-way action of an insecticide and Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) ensures complete control of fire ants. The IGR sterilizes the queen and prevents rebound, while the adulticide kills problem worker ants.

Q: How does this granular affect the ants? How long will it take before I start to see results? Can I place there were animals are?
A: Extinguish Plus is both an adulticide and an IGR and will kill the colony and prevent further infestation into the area when used according to the application label. It can be used around animals, but there are specific application recommendations that should be followed on the label for grazing animals.
