Jean from Hilo, Hi writes,
Does Siesta act as a bait that is carried back to the Queen?
Instructions do not address eradicating a nest area.
Siesta Insecticide Fire Ant Bait is a bait and will be taken back to the nest and transferred throughout the colony. Siesta is recommended to be applied when temperatures are above 60 degrees in the early morning or late afternoon. This is when ants are the most active. Applications should be avoided in wet conditions or when rain or irrigation is expected within 12 hours.
