Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate

Dominion 2L is an excellent termiticide and insecticide used for subterranean, drywood, dampwood termites and carpenter ants that contains the exact same active ingredient and precentage as Premise 2 and I Maxx Pro 2F. Dominion 2L can be sprayed directly on an active termite infestation, or poured in the ground around a home or building to protect against subterranean termites. Dominion 2L is also non-repellent, meaning that termites will crawl over the product without detecting it, and spread it to each other by touch and food sharing, eventually eliminating the entire infestation. Yields 50 gallons of finished solution per bottle.

How To Apply Dominion 2L Termiticide

How Dominion 2L Termiticide Works

Dominion 2L Termiticide/Insecticide is a versatile non-repellent liquid concentrate with the active ingredient Imidacloprid. Imidacloprid is in the class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids, neuro-active insecticides that are modeled after nicotine. Imidacloprid works by disrupting inhibiting stimuli transmission within an insect’s nervous system. More specifically, imidacloprid blocks a certain type of neuronal pathways which are much more prevalent in insects than mammals.

Termites and ants do not detect Dominion 2L and pick up the active ingredient through contact and ingestion. Because the active ingredient works slowly, ants and termites continue their regular activity and pass the active ingredient throughout the colony through touching and food sharing, eventually eliminating the entire colony.

Dominion 2L also works as an insecticide for turf and ornamental pests. Dominion 2L works as a foliar spray, killing insects on contact, or as a systemic insecticide. As a drenching treatment, Dominion 2L works from the ground up, being absorbed through a plant’s root system and killing insects that feed on that plant, such as aphids and whiteflies, by ingestion.

Target Uses of Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate

Dominion 2L is a liquid concentrate termiticide and insecticide for use outdoors around residential and commercial structures. As a termiticide, Dominion 2L is extremely popular as a ground treatment, either pre-construction or post-construction trenching for the prevention and treatment of subterranean termites. Dominion 2L has the same ingredient as Premise 2 Termiticide, but at a much lower cost. Indoor applications of Dominion 2L are limited to spot treatments for live termite infestations.

Dominion 2L is also an excellent systemic insecticide for a variety of turf an ornamental pests. Dominion 2L can be applied as a foliar spray on ornamentals and turf, or as a soil drench or injection around trees and shrubs. Dominion 2L can also be used as part of ant management programs to control aphids, scale insects, mealybugs, and other sucking pests on ornamentals to limit the honeydew available as a food source for ant populations.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Imidacloprid 21.4%

Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate Application Instructions

For subterranean termite control, the purpose of chemical soil treatment is to establish a continuous chemical treated zone (horizontal and/or vertical) between the wood and other cellulose material in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil. Structures containing wells or cisterns within the foundation of the structure can only be treated using the treated backfill method. Using a 0.1% solution (0.6 fl. oz. per gallon of water), use 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 lineal feet of 6 in. by 6 in. trench around the structure. For soil treatments to be covered by concrete slab such as under carports, porches, or basement floors, apply at a rate of 1 gallon or sufficient volume of solution to accurately and uniformly cover 10 square feet.

See our article How to Do a Subterranean Termite Treatment for further details of trenching treatment.

Dominion 2L can be converted to a foam to treat voids or hollow block to create a continuous treated zone or to treat active infestations of subterranean termites in structures at expansion rates of 5:1, 10:1, or 20:1.

  • For carpenter ants, use 0.6 fl. oz. per gallon of water to treat around the perimeter of a structure, concentrating on areas where pests may enter the structure.
  • For turfgrass, make applications preceding or during the egg laying period of the target pest. Most favorable applications will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Do not make applications when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Applications cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pints per acre per year.
  • For ornamental applications, the product must be placed where the growing portion of the target plant can absorb the active ingredient. The addition of a nitrogen containing fertilizer, where applicable, into the soil may enhance the uptake of Dominion 2L application can be made by foliar application or soil applications, including soil injection, drenches, and broadcast sprays.

* For soil drenching of trees and shrubs, use 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. per inch of trunk diameter or per foot of shrub height and apply through soil injection or soil drench.

* Always read the product label completely before use.

Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios for Dominion 2L:

  • 0.3 fl. oz. (9 mL)/gal. of water – 0.05% - some termite treatments
  • 0.6 fl. oz. (17 mL)/gal. of water – 0.1% - most termite applications, perimeter treatment for carpenter ants
  • 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. (14 to 17 mL) per 1,000 sq. ft. – 1.25 to 1.6 pt/Acre – Turf grass applications, ornamental broadcast applications, flowers and groundcovers – use highest rate for suppression of chinchbugs and mole crickets
  • 1.5 fl. oz. (45 mL) per 100 gal. of water or 6.0 fl. oz. per Acre – foliar applications to trees, shrubs and ornamentals
  • 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) per inch of trunk diameter or per foot of shrub height – soil injections/drench

Dominion 2L is for use in the following areas:

Termite treatments around structures and building construction; turfgrass (including sod farms), landscape ornamentals, fruit and nut trees (non-commercial), trees, shrubs, flowers and groundcovers, and interior plantscapes; turfgrass in home lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, and sod farms; in and around industrial and commercial buildings and residential areas: trees, shrubs, evergreens, flowers, foliage plants, groundcovers, interior plantscapes; state, national, and private wooded and forested areas (soil injection and soil drench applications); Pome Fruit trees: Apple, Crabapple, Loquat, Mayhaw, Pear, oriental Pear, Quince; Pecan trees; Grapes

Indoors

Dominion 2L Termiticide Concentrate can only be used indoors for localized treatment of active termite infestations.

Outdoors

Perimeter Pest Control: Treat soil, turf, or ground cover adjacent to the structure where ants are trailing or may find food or harborage. Apply to flower, shrub or ornamental plant beds adjacent to the structure where ants may find food or storage. To control ants tunneling in soil apply a 0.05% to 0.1% solution as a drench or soil injection at intervals to establish a continuous treated zone. Treat along the edge of walls, driveways or other hard surfaces where ants are tunneling beneath the surface. Maximum application is once per month. Do not use against native or imported fire ants, pharaoh, or harvester ants.

Turfgrass: Apply Dominion 2L in sufficient water to provide adequate distribution in the treated area. Use equipment which will produce a uniform, coarse droplet spray, using a low pressure setting to eliminate off target drift. Do not apply through any irrigation equipment. Use 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. per 1,000 square feet. For chinch bug suppression, apply 0.6 fl. oz. (17 mL) before hatching of the first instar nymphs. For best control, irrigation or rainfall should occur within 24 hours after application to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Avoid mowing are until after irrigation or rainfall.

Foliar applications: Use 1.5 fl. oz. per 100 gal. of water for foliar pests on trees, shrubs, flowers, groundcovers, etc. Begin applications before the onset of high pest populations and reapply as needed. For broadcast applications, use 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. Use enough water to mix the product and thoroughly apply to the treatment area. Do not use less than 2 gallons of water per 1,000 sq. ft. For best results, irrigate after application to incorporate Dominion 2L into the upper soil level.

Soil drench: For trees, use 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. per inch of truck diameter (or per foot of shrub height for shrubs). Apply uniformly as a drench around the base of the tree in not less than 10 gallons of water per 1000 square feet. Direct application to the root area. Remove plastic or any other barrier that will stop solution from reaching the root zone. For soil injection, Use enough water to mix the product and inject an equal amount of solution in each hole. Use low pressure and sufficient solution for distribution of the liquid into the treatment area. For best control, keep the treated area moist for 7 to 10 days. Do not use less than 4 holes per tree or shrub.

    5 of 5 stars  Dominion 2L Product Review
    By Patrick in La Mesa, CA on 04/29/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I don't know why the wood adjacent to my bath tub wet-wall was moist? I found no leaks and the plumbing vent to the roof was well sealed. Condensation? The bath drainpipe and water inlets come up through a hole in the slab. The subterranean termite varmints tunneled 10' or 40' under the house slab and surfaced at this point of exposed earth attracted by the moist wood. They swarmed the first warm days in Spring. I treated the exposed earthen area with the Dominion 2L termiticide and then filled it in with sand which is known to obstruct termites. I treated the slab, wood framing, floor and molding with a 2:1 water to Bora-Care mixture. I sprayed Bora-Care down from the attic and drilled holes in the walls where there was no other access. I finished by treating the ground around the house with Dominion 2L. This is my first experience with a termite infestation and my problem appears to have been solved for under $170. I Thank DoMyOwnPestControl.com for providing professional products at fair prices.

    2 of 5 stars  Unsure at this time
    By Gary in New Jersey on 04/28/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I had a major infestation of flying drone termites in my house. I trenched around my entire house 6-8" down and 4-5" away from foundation where I could and drilled a 1/2" hole 18" deep at the stoop and driveway every 10" and applied Dominion 2L at the rate shown for heavy infestation. I still had them in my house 5 days later though not as bad. I then went to the basement and exposed the exterior framing at the foundation and proceed to spray the BoraCare. 1/2 way through this process I found huge piles of dirt and trails a plenty underneath my front door. At this time I saturated the wood using the Dominion 2L. It is now over a week since then (2 weeks since treating outside) and I am still finding one or two termite upstairs everyday.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Dominion 2L is a non-repellent termiticide, meaning it does not kill the termites right away.  The product is a delayed kill so the termites above the ground have time to take the product back to the colony and the queen that is below ground.  This ensures that the colony is completely eliminated.  For this reason Dominion 2L and all other non-repellents including Termidor, take up to 90 days to kill a termite colony.  So it is normal to see activity for up to 90 days after treating your home.

    I found the process not that difficult.  I used a short pickax to dig the trench, and needed 2 containers of Dominion. I found the tech support from the website to be great, but still have to wait a while to see if all termite activity ceases.  So far so good, no new mud tubes, and its been 3 weeks since the application.

    Verified Purchase

    I trenched around my house (using a small pickax) and applied Dominion 2L as directed by the very helpful staff at DoMyOwnPestControl.com. It's a month and a half later, we replaced a threshold that was eaten up, and there doesn't appear to be any signs of termites.  This wasn't easy, but it saved a bundle. Also the carpenter ant gel sold on this site is very effective. Thanks again!!

    5 of 5 stars  Dominion 2L - on carpenter ants
    By Jeff in Tucson, AZ on 09/18/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I have a shed on remote property in the mountains which I visit every two months or so. On one visit, the shed, built on a wooden platform, was infested with ants. From research on the internet I determined by their behavior that they were carpenter ants. Insecticides from home improvement stores killed the ones I could see, but later, millions more attended the funeral service. A good band treatment in a 2 foot (or so) wide band from a 2 gallon plastic watering can around the shed with Dominion 2L and no more ants in the shed. I've since treated around some of the pinion pine trees where they still frequent. I'll find out on my next trip in October '11 if it did as well there. When you mix the concentrate, be sure to wear rubber gloves as it can be absorbed through your skin if it splashes on you. The concentrate, which resembles whipping cream, requires very thorough mixing or you'll end up with concentrated product pouring on the ground when you get down to the last few ounces.

    5 of 5 stars  Finally, something that WORKS
    By Steve in Hillsdale, NJ on 08/26/2011
    Verified Purchase

    For about the past 5 years i have been losing my fight against carpenter ants. Nothing available in the mega hardware stores or local garden centers seems to work. I have always been able to find ants pretty much everywhere. I was pretty much resigned to call a professional exterminator when i thought to search the internet and found you. after a single application of Dominion on the exterior of my house, a full week later and i cannot locate a single carpenter. I have probably spent $300-500 dollars in the past few years on stuff that didnt work at all so this is one of the BEST purchases i have ever made. THANK YOU for being there! DoMyOwnPestControl has made one of the major annoyances in my life go away. I WILL be back and i will be recommending you to my family and friends.

    5 of 5 stars  Dominion 2L
    By Greg in Maryland on 04/10/2011
    Verified Purchase

    Great product at a great price. I had my previous house professionally treated with Termidor at a cost of over a $1000 dollars. Did a similar treatment at my new, slightly larger, home myself with Dominion 2L at a cost of about $90 dollars. I expended a bit of sweat doing the trenching and back-fill, but was definitely worth the savings. Everything I've seen indicates that Dominion 2L (Imidacloprid) works similarly to Termidor. Works slightly faster than Termidor to kill the affected insect. This is good, but it does slightly decrease the likelihood of spreading the pesticide in the colony. Otherwise has a similar span between retreatment times (7 years as compared to 10 years for Termidor). Received my order very quickly, only 2 days after ordering.

    Bought this originally as a systemic to control scale on my Canary Island Date palm. Found out that it is the same chemical used in some pet products to control ticks and fleas so I consider it somewhat pet safe to use around the house outdoors. After reading the label information I found out it also control Chinch bugs in the St Augustine grass here in Southwest Florida. Worked better than the dry bagged products sold in home centers.

    Previously used Merit for 10 ash trees at a total cost of $500 per year. Thanks to advice from DoMyOwnPestContol, I was able to treat my trees with Dominion for a total of $90. Dominion was much easier to use as it is in a liquid form vs the dry Merit. Only time will tell if all the treatments the past 3 years have been effective. But so far there is no sign of infestation and we live in an area that has infestation of the EAB near by.

    5 of 5 stars  Control of Willow leaf miner
    By Ron in Williamston, MI on 05/07/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I've had years of problems with late summer leaf loss due to a leaf miner on my willows. Many attempts to control it with various sprays were not successful. I noticed some improvement late summer 2008 after the first application of Dominion that spring. The second application in spring 2009 resulted in about 90% improvement by late summer. 2010 will be my third application. One 23 oz. bottle treated my 12 trees. Application is easy - dilute with water per label and pour on the soil around the tree at the drip line one time per year in the spring.

QHow does Dominion 2L compare to Termidor?

ADominion 2L and Termidor SC are both non-repellent termiticides. One of the features of a non-repellent is that the product is undetectable by pests--they walk over it and touch it without knowing it, and then they are able to transfer the product to each other eventually wiping out the entire colony of termites or ants. Termidor SC does have a slightly longer residual in the ground. Termidor lasts about 10 years in the ground, and Dominion 2L will last around 7 years. Dominion 2L is a much better deal money wise; you can make double the amount of solution for a little more than half of the price.

QHow long does a Dominion 2L application last, and is it as good as Termidor SC?

A

Dominion 2L is a non-repellent just like Termidor SC, but it has a different active ingredient. Dominion 2L will last about 7 years in the ground and Termidor SC will last for 10 years.  Other then the length of time in the ground, they are both applied the same way.  Dominion 2L is half the cost of Termidor SC and that is the main reason why it has been so popular.  Dominion 2L is our best seller for termite control as of late and our customers have been very pleased with the results.

QI am out in southern Arizona, and we just had an inspection and we have couple of termite mud tubes.
I am planning on buying the Dominion 2L product. My questions are as follows: 1. We have two cement patios/porches that are about 5-7' wide-- do I need to drill or can I just apply the Dominion on the perimeter? 2. The termite company said they were going to spray something into the walls, and they called it an HP Mister? Do I need to inject anything into the walls? The walls are insulated so I assume the foam products wouldn't work. Is this an unnecessary step or is it just another layer of added protection? 3. Will the termite bait stations work if one of the mud tubes is coming up between a sidewalk and the stem wall? Or do I need to treat that with the Dominion 2L? Thanks for your help!

A

Dominion 2L is a great product for termite control.  When treating slabs you are supposed to drill where the slab meets the house. The goal of any termite treatment is to completely surround your home around the perimeter of the foundation. To get the product against your foundation where you have a slab you should drill through the slab. If you decide to trench around the slab then you will be leaving this important area against the house exposed to termites. 

I am not familiar with a HP Mister or what they could be placing in the wall.  Foam is not necessary if you can get to the termites under normal conditions.  

Termite bait stations are just a secondary form of protection.  A Baiting System will no take care of any termites that have already found wood in your house.  They are a preventative treatment only and will only intercept new colonies in the ground coming towards your house.  The only way to eliminate termites already in your home is to treat them directly with a liquid treatment.  

Please let us know if you have any further questions.  You should also read our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article if you have not already.

QCan I use Dominion 2L to treat ash trees for Emerald Ash Borer?
I have used other products which have 1.47% Imidacloprid appied at 1 Oz per inch circumference applied annually. At 21.4% I would think about 1 Oz per foot circumference would be more that adequate. Recommendations for this use?

ADominion 2L is labeled to use on trees to help protect against boring beetles. Treatments should begin in May or June and should be done every year to protect trees from the Emerald Ash Borers. Most people use a 5 gallon bucket or a large watering can to apply Dominion as a soil drench. You will need 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Dominion 2L per inch of trunk diameter for trees. It is recommended that you use the higher rate for boring beetles. The amount of water that is used will vary depending on soil conditions and volumes that are easy for applicators to use. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per inch of trunk diameter for trees but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter for trees. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.  Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred. After the soil drench has been applied you should water it in with at east 1/2 inch of water. Note: Water simply acts as a carrier and it is important that even distribution of the product is achieved. Thus, more water may be used if the applicator feels runoff will not occur and proper penetration of the root zone is achieved. Insecticides applied to the soil are taken up by the roots and trans-located throughout the tree or shrub. Root/soil drenches offer the advantage of requiring no special equipment to apply (other than a bucket or watering can). However, surface layers of organic matter, such as mulch or leaf litter, can bind the insecticide and reduce uptake. Before applying drenches, it is important to remove or pull back any mulch or dead leaves so the insecticide solution is poured directly on the mineral soil. It is also important to keep the soil around the tree or shrub moist for the next 10-14 days after applications to encourage uptake.

QIs Demon WP good for termites? If not, what product can I use to do it my self and save?
One of the walls of our dining area has some little holes, we noticed that they had like dirt and when we cleaned them, we left the little holes open, we saw them the first time about a month ago and now a second wall has the same little holes...they have to be termites!! I've used Demon WP all the time, I need to know if we can use it for these or if there's another product I can use for termites?

ADemon WP is a great product for all other insects, but it is not the right product for termite control.  You need a termite specific product.  Also, termites require a much more involved treatment than just spraying around the house like what you would normally do with Demon WP for other insects.  We have an article that explains exactly what you need to do to perform a termite treatment.  It is called, "How To Do A Termite Treatment" and if you follow the instructions outlined in this article you will treat and protect your home from termites as good as any professional company could do.  It also recommends the product you should use, which is Dominion 2L.

QCan you treat half of a house at a time for termites?

AAbsolutely.  You do not have to treat the entire house at once.  Many of our customers treat one side of the house one week, and then another the following week, and so on.  Termiticides last for 7 to 10 years in the ground, so if you take a month or so to do a full treatment, it is no big deal.  The most important thing is to overlap and make sure that you do not miss any areas.

QHow far apart and deep should you drill in the cement slab for a termite treatment?

AThe answer to this question is also in our How To Do A Termite Treatment Article.  For your garage, porch, patios, or other contiguous slabs against the home, you will need to get the termiticide underneath the concrete against the foundation. To do this you will need a hammer drill with a 1/2" x 18" drill bit. You drill holes throughout the concrete about 3-4 inches away from the wall or foundation, and about every 10"-12" apart. Once the holes are drilled, you fill at the same rate you did the trench, 4 gallons per 10 feet. To fill these I would recommend using the one gallon sprayer on a "pin stream" setting so you can force the liquid down the hole and not splash it everywhere. You can also use a funnel and pour the termiticide down the holes. It is difficult to get 4 gallons per 10 feet in the holes, so it is important that you use a long drill bit, at least 18" long so you can bore out enough dirt to hold the termiticide. Once the holes are filled all you need to do is patch them with a concrete patch filler you can buy at Home Depot or you can use our Trebor plugs that will close the hole with no concrete mess.

QWe had a termite swarm in our dining room. I plan to treat around the perimeter of the house as you suggest.
I found tunnels from the edge of the concrete slab in the garage up to the sill plate that abuts the dining room. I'm sure I have termites in the wall between the garage and dining room. However, there are no droppings, holes or other evidence to point to exactly where the termites are inside the wall. Should I mix Dominion or Bora-Care with a foaming agent, drill holes into each joist space and spray into these spaces? If so, how much spray? Top and bottom of the joist space? Every six to twelve inches? Thanks.

AIf you found the tunnels then you know exactly where the termites are.  The colony is under the slab of the garage and the termites that are in the wall use the tunnel you found to back and forth between the wood they are eating and the colony below the slab.  To properly treat this area you should drill holes through the garage slab so you can get the Dominion directly in the soil where the termite tube is going.  How to do this is explained in our How To Do A Termite Treatment Article, 5th paragraph down explains how to drill that wall in your garage.  You can also drill a hole above the baseboard into the Sheetrock where the termite tunnel is going into the wall and just spray in the void with Dominion.  You do not need to buy a foamer and foaming agent, etc....spraying will be fine.  If you have any further questions please feel free to call us at 866-581-7378.

QWhat is the appropriate Dominion 2L usage rate for white fly treatment?
What would be the appropriate mix rate to treat a ficus hedge that is approximately 6 feet high? I have a 4 gallon backpack sprayer. Thank you.

A

You will need 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Dominion 2L per foot of shrub height so you will need to use 1.2 oz of product per 6 ft hedge. The amount of water that is used will vary depending on soil conditions and volumes that are easy for applicators to use. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per foot of shrub height but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per foot of height as well. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.  Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred. After the soil drench has been applied you should water it in with at east 1/2 inch of water. Note: Water simply acts as a carrier and it is important that even distribution of the product is achieved. Thus, more water may be used if the applicator feels runoff will not occur and proper penetration of the root zone is achieved. Insecticides applied to the soil are taken up by the roots and translocated throughout the tree or shrub.

QShould I use Dominion 2L on indoor treatment?
I found active mud tubes in the house and in the basement on exposed beams. How do I treat these? Do I pop them open and spray the Dominion 2L right on the bugs, or do I spray the exterior of the tube? If Dominion 2L is not suitable for this, what other product do you recommend?

A

You should definitely use Dominion 2L directly on the termites if you know where they are.  You would knock the tubes down and spray directly on the beam.  It also does not hurt to drill a hole into the beam and treat into the beam directly.  However, the bigger issue is that it sounds like you have subterranean termites which usually enter from around the outside perimeter of the home.  You can just spot treat the beam, but the more complete answer is to treat around the perimeter of your home completely.  This will serve two purposes.  If there are termites in other places around your home you do not know about yet, a full treatment should take care of them.  Also, if you treat around your entire home, the Dominion will last for 7 years in the soil which means you should be able to live termite free for the next 7 years.  You should read our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article which explains exactly how you can do just as good, if not better of a treatment than a professional company.

QWill Dominion 2L kill my plants or trees?
If I spray it around the exterior of my house what will it do to my plants & trees?

AWhen used as directed on the product label, Dominion 2L will not harm your trees or plants. Dominion 2L is actually labeled to use directly on trees and other plants for control of plant infesting insects. Please read the product label to learn how to correctly use Dominion 2L on vegetation.

QCan Dominion 2L be used safely inside a home. If so, how long is the wait time for re-entry?

ADominion 2L is only labeled for outside use around your foundation for termites and carpenter ants. What pest are you having a problem with on the inside? We do carry many other products labeled for inside use depending on what your issue is.

QWhy is Dominion 2L not to be used against imported fire ants, harvester, or pharaoh ants?

ADominion 2L is not labeled to treat those ants because of a patent issue with another product. If these ants happen to be on the foundation when you apply the product, it will of course affect them as well. For patent issues though, the manufacturer of Dominion 2L cannot place those ants as a target pest on the label.
