Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait Kills Fire Ants

Each 4.5 Lb. Container Treats 3 Acres

Pricing, Ordering Info: Extinguish Plus Fireant Bait        Other Fire Ant Baits 

Use to control imported and domestic fire ants, and other ants such as Harvester Ants, Big Headed Ants and Argentine Ants.

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait contains an insect growth regulator (IGR) with specific activity to fire ants and Hydramethylnon insecticide.
Hydramethylnon is a slow acting insecticide that will kill ants slowly, giving them time to share the bait with other members of the fire ant colony.  It works by disrupting the production of energy in an insect's cells.  Methoprene effects the queen ants' reproduction.
Ant colonies require many workers to take care of all workers, the colony's brood and care for the queen.  Without sufficient amount of workers, a colony will eventually crash.

By combining Methoprene and Hydramethylnon in an ant bait, the entire fire ant colony can be killed without the use of chemicals that would be toxic to grazing animals.

NOTE: The original "Extinguish Fireant Bait" contained only Methoprene and could be used on any pasture or graze land.  Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait can still be used in pastures but for companion animals, only.
Companion animals grazed on treated areas cannot be used for food or feed.
Extinguish Plus bait may be used on uncultivated, agricultural, nonfood crop and non-agricultural land.

The IGR (Methoprene) is contained in an attractive bait that foraging fire ant workers take back to the mound to feed to other workers and the queen.  (Methoprene is the same active ingredient used in Precor IGR, indoor flea control) IGR’s are different from conventional products which provide a direct kill to fire ants.  IGR’s work by affecting queen reproduction.  The effects of the treatment may not be immediately evident. IGR’s are slower in activity than conventional products.  Though slower in action, control is complete without the concern of rebounding or movement of the colony to another location.

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait may be used as a preventative application to reduce the buildup of fire ants into unwanted areas.   Two to three broadcast applications (using a granule spreader) per year are recommended to prevent the encroachment and subsequent development of new mounds into an area.

Avoid application of Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait during heat of the day or when rain is expected within 6 hours of application.  Avoid application to wet areas as moisture reduces the attractiveness of the bait.  In areas of heavy infestation, repeat applications may be necessary 10 to 12 weeks following the initial treatment.  The following application methods can be used individually or in combination.

Individual Mound Treatments for Fire Ants

Treat all visible fire ant mounds with 3 to 5 tablespoons of Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait.  To treat the mounds, sprinkle the adjacent areas of the mound, applying evenly in a manner to encompass the mound to a perimeter of 4 feet.  Do not disturb the mound or dump the bait on the mound!  Disturbing the fire ant mound will only stress the colony, causing bait avoidance and possibly splitting the fire ants into more locations.

Broadcast Applications for Fire Ants

Apply Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait to areas infested with fire ants at the rate of 1 to 1.5 pounds of product per acre (3.5 tablespoons per 1000 square feet) using a hand seeder or broadcast spreader.  No withdrawal or grazing restrictions are necessary on treated areas.

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait may be applied to (but not limited to):

Residential turf and landscape, golf courses, airports, road sides, cemeteries, commercial grounds, parks, kennels, school grounds, picnic grounds, athletic fields and other recreational areas.

Use 1.5 pounds per acre.  Each 4.5 pound container will treat 3 acres.
