Pesticides for Killing and Controlling White-Footed Ants

A combination of products and methods must be used to effectively control white-footed ant infestations. Indoor baits might help reduce the population to some extent but do not really harm the colony.  Fluorguard Ant Bait can be used to monitor indoor "hotspots" and to reduce visible, indoor white footed ants.
It seems that the best control is to use the following:
Broadcast Talstar (granules or concentrate) over the entire property and at least repeat application 3 times each year. Talstar should also be sprayed (with a pump type garden sprayer) on the exterior and interior of the structure. On the outside, spray every possible entry point and hiding place, every little crack or crevice where an ant (or other pests) might enter. Indoors, spray any area where ants are most likely to encounter the material. Talstar has no odor, is a ton safer than the harsh Dursban, Diazinon, Spectracide, Rid-A-Bug type products (when used as directed,) and gives an incredibly long residual indoors and out. Outdoors, Talstar has been known to kill ants for more than 2 months with one application, if applied properly.
Indoors, you must also apply a good, safe insecticide dust to any crack, crevice, hiding place, entry point, wall void or attic -- places where ants are most likely to hide, colonize, forage for food, etc. Delta Dust is best for killing white footed ants.  Delta Dust should be used where you cannot treat with a spray and where people and pets cannot come into contact with the material. Dusts (such as Delta Dust, Drione Dust) are very safe to use, when applied properly.  Delta Dust is best.
In summary, you need:
Talstar, Delta Dust, a hose-end sprayer for outdoors, a pump style garden sprayer for indoors and outside surface of your home and a Crusader Duster for applying your Delta Dust.
