Fire Ants

Now these are some creatures you do not want around!  Fire Ants are nasty biters and their bites end up festering, itching and can lead to scarring, infections and worse! 

Treatment for Fire Ants:

Materials Needed:

Greenbug Ready to Use or

Greenbug Concentrate, properly diluted

A long stick to poke into the Fire Ant Nest

  1. Locate the Fire Ant nest and create as easy an access as possible.
  2. Liberally spray the Greenbug Ready to Use or Greenbug Concentrate properly diluted around the outside perimeter of the Fire Ant nest to create a border they are hesitant to cross.
  3. Take your long stick and drive it into the center of the Fire Ant Nest and force it as deep as you can. You can stir it around a it to get it as deep as possible.  Turn the stick to about a 30 degree angle so it is not straight up.
  4. Be very careful to avoid the Fire Ants boiling out of the nest that will come towards you and up the stick.
  5. Take the Greenbug Ready to Use or Greenbug Concentrate properly diluted and pour a 1/2 cup slowly down the stick directly into the center of the Fire Ant Nest. This allows the Greenbug to penetrate to the Queen.
  6. Large Fire Ant Nests may require more than ½ cup.
  7. Continue spraying the Fire Ants boiling out of the center
  8. Return the next day to see the progress. Most Fire Ant Nests are controlled with one treatment but sometimes the nest underground goes horizontally instead of straight down.  If there is a new mound forming or if moving the stick causes ants to boil out, repeat the steps above daily until you have control.
