Martin from Benton, Ar. writes,

Can Malathion be used to control ants around the doors and windows of my house?

I use Orthene for fireant mounds and it's very effective for them but doesn't seem to work for other types of ants that trail in the patio cracks and around door and window casements.

Answer:

 Hi-Yield 55% Malathion Insecticide Spray is only labeled to be applied in home gardens, listed fruits and vegetables, and landscape ornamentals, peaches, pears, tomatoes, cabbage, potatoes, ornamental herbaceous plants, ornamental non-flowering plants, ornamental woody shrubs. It could leave an oilyu residue around your home. Taurus SC would be a great go to for ant control around your home.
