Allegheny Mound Ant Information Page
Although certain baits have been used with limited results in Allegheny Mound Ant
elimination, better control can be attained through mound drenching. The best active
ingredient for drenching Allegheny Mound Ants (and other large mounds) is Cypermethrin. Cypermethrin is the
active ingredient in Cyper WP, Demon EC, Demon WP, Cynoff EC
and Cynoff WP insecticides.
These products are odorless and safe to use in and around homes, families and pets when
used as directed. Follow label instructions for mixing and keep pets and children
off of treated areas until dry. These guidelines are for all pesticides! If
you call a professional pest control operator to rid your home of ants,
roaches, spiders or other pests, he or she will more than likely use one of these
products. Demon EC, Demon WP, Cynoff EC and Cynoff WP
cannot be shipped to NY, NJ, CT, VT, AK
Small mounds (a few inches in diameter) can be eliminated by removing the spray
tip from you garden sprayer, then slowly drench the mound with low pressure and high
volume of Cynoff or Demon. Larger mounds are easier to
eliminate by drenching with a 5 gallon bucket or watering can. A mound of one foot
in diameter will require about one gallon of solution. Do not use high pressure
spraying to eliminate these ants; they will only escape and rebuild their mounds!
