Award II Fire Ant Bait is a great product to control fire ants. Landscape examples include commercial, residential, public and industrial buildings; recreational areas and parks; playgrounds; schools; and churches. It is safe for use around citrus, walnut and almond trees in landscapes. Can also be used in commercial nursery production of container grown and field ornamentals and non bearing trees. Award II Fire Ant Bait works by containing an oil in the bait that attracts fire ants. Worker ants take the bait and takes it over to the mound where it is passed to other workers and then to the queen ant. This product is a slow acting stomach insecticide which will slowly kill the ants. When it reaches the queen, it will cause the egg production to quickly end and terminate the colony.
