Amdro is great!
By Ken on 10/12/2010
I love this product. Mound treatments work well if you know where all the mounds are. Spread Amdro and the ants will find it, take it home, and it will kill the whole mound. It is not cheap but it works great...

Nothing is perfect, but Amdro Pro "works"
By Brendan on 03/28/2012
I'm giving Amdro Pro 4 stars only because I have yet to use anything that actually works better. I've tried all of the home-baked remedies (instant grits, hot water, Indian chants, etc) and most of the commercially-available ones as well, and as a single product, Amdro works reasonably well. Unfortunately, Fire Ants are aggressive, invasive, and extremely hardy, so true extermination is impossible. Control and mitigation are the only possibilities, and that requires fairly intensive, sustained effort. There simply is no annual "one and done" method. Amdro Pro has TWICE the effective amount of active ingredient than does "Extinguish Plus" so it actually costs considerably LESS than EP for the amount of killing power in each bag. However, even with AP I often have to treat the same, larger mounds (and I've seen some monsters!) 2-3 times over the course of a month to finally kill it completely. Make sure it's dry (but not too dry), warm (but not too warm), and thoroughly spread. Forget tablespoons, we're talking CUPS per mound spread over a 10-15' radius (if spot treating). I don't want to broadcast, because we have livestock.

worst product that I have used
By Libby on 10/06/2011
I used this product and treated ant mounds, went back 1 week later and retreated again. Checked today, 1 week after 2nd treatment, and the mounds are being fertilized by this product. There are more ants and more mounds after the use of this product. Will never buy again.

Amdro Pro Fire Ant Bait
By George on 09/30/2011
I have an eight-acre estate in fire-ant ridden rural Louisiana. There are no other homes nearby so the fireants are not controlled on adjacent property. My location, therefore, is a particularly difficult one with regard to fire ants. I have used Amdro fire ant bait for many years to control fire ants, which I sprinkle in the vicinity of the nest. The nest usually dies within 48 hours of treatment. I don't know of a better product for fire ant control.

This product works very well. I have 6 acres and was infested with fire ants, mounds everywhere. I first applied a small amount of this product to each mound I could find. This worked well but after following up with a broadcast application they were gone. I went from 100's of mounds to 0. Not sure if we will ever have a problem again but as for now no fire ants.

I manage a 25 acre commercial site and have fire ants everywhere here in Little Rock, Arkansas. product description was clear, knew exactly what I was getting. I have used AMdro previously in smaller purchased quantities, but need the largest quantity I can get in mid-summer for the BEST price. This was the best price for the 25# quantity. I am actually buying my 2nd bag today.
Waste of money
By Wilton on 03/22/2017
We applied this product around approximately fifty fire ant mounds. It has not rained, nor have the mounds been otherwise been disturbed. Over half the mounds are still active ten days later.
Thank you for your comments! We would encourage you to continue to give the fire ant bait time to work, or you may need additional product on some of the larger ant mounds. As long as the ants are actively foraging, then you should get great results from the bait, but it can take time to work through an entire colony. Please let us know if we can further assist you anytime. We appreciate your feedback and your business!
