David from Florence Sc writes,

Are American Brand Permethrin Granules an effective brand for fire ants like Advion Fire Ant Bait?


American Brand Permethrin Granules are labeled for fire ants and should be applied with water. Advion Fire Ant Bait should be applied around the mound on a dry day when you are not expecting any rainfall for at least 8-24hrs. American Brand Permethrin Granules are insecticide granules and Advion Fire Ant granules are a bait that they consume and transfer through food sharing. Baiting is most popular because you are able to eradicate more than the foraging ants because the product makes it way back to the colony site.
