Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait
  • Alternate Image 1

Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (IGR) to kill fire ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. The result is complete fire ant colony control. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is best used in the spring or early fall, or whenever fire ants are active. The ants will feed off Extinuish Plus and spread the bait throughout the entire colony, halting the infestation within weeks. Extinguish Fire Ant Bait can be used indoors and outdoors on lawns, pasture land, rangeland, landscaped areas, and golf courses.

TIPS:  This product can take 4 to 7 days to see results, however, you should only apply this product if the soil temperature is about 65 degrees, it is not going to rain within 8 hours, and the fire ants are foraging. It is recommended to broadcast the treatment instead of mound treat for best results, and you should apply the product where the ground is in the sun, since this is where fire ants will nest. You can use this product on pastureland. It may be applied to grass forage (pasture and rangeland) for the control of fire ants only in the following states - Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

No grazing restrictions for companion animals, (horses, llamas etc).

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait - 1 lb jar has increased to a 1.5 lb container.

Now you can have fast acting, long lasting fire ant control. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is the only dual active fire ant bait that kills the workers and sterilizes the queen. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is highly attractive to fire ants. It combines the killing speed of an adulticide (Hydramethylnon) and the long-lasting control of an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) (S-Methoprene). The IGR sterilizes the queen and prevents rebound, while the fast acting adulticide kills problem worker ants. This two-way action ensures complete control of fire ants.

  • Controls and eliminates colonies without colony relocation
  • Stops young colonies from developing into problem colonies
  • Destroys visible and hidden colonies
  • Approved for indoor and outdoor use
  • Starts killing ants immediately after ingestion
  • Can be used as a broadcast application or used to treat individual mounds
  • Can be used on pasture and rangeland

 

When should I apply the bait?

  • While spring and fall are the best time to apply the bait, you may apply as needed, when ants are active and foraging (usually early morning or late afternoon with soil temperatures above 60° F).
  • To determine when ants are foraging, place a potato chip near the mound. If ants do not feed in a few minutes, try the test again later and apply product when feeding occurs.
  • Apply product when area is dry from dew or irrigation. Do not apply product within 6 hours of a rain event. Wet bait is unattractive to ants.

Broadcast application

  • Use 1.5 pounds per acre.
  • Spread with a hand-held spreader, backpack, motorized equipment or aircraft.
  • Set the spreader at the lowest setting, treating the outer perimeter first. Then apply in a strip pattern within that area.

Individual mound treatment

  • Use 2-5 tablespoons per mound.
  • Distribute bait uniformly around each mound.
  • Do not disturb mound during application.

Refillable bait stations

  • Place one refilaable bait  station such as the Ant No More Bait Station every 15-30 feet along the perimeter of a structure or fence line. Also place them near potential entry points, including weep holes, foundation vents, stairs and decks.
  • Place up to 2 tablespoons of bait per station.
  • Inspect stations frequently and replenish bait as it is soiled or has become wet.

Indoor Use

Apply bait ONLY into crack and crevices. Apply 2 teaspoons - 1 tablespoon per crack, crevice or other in accessible areas where ants are entering the structure or where ants are nesting.

Is Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait or Extinguish Plus waterproof? How do weather conditions affect it?

If Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait or Extinguish Plus gets wet, it will have reduced palatability, and therefore reduces results. The product should be applied while ground conditions are dry and where rainfall is not expected for more that six hours. Most foraging ants will pick up the bait within six hours after placement.

    5 of 5 stars  Fire Ants in Tampa, Florida
    By David in Tampa, Florida on 06/13/2010
    Verified Purchase

    A friend of mine from Texas recommended this product to me. I am allergic to Fire Ant toxins. When I sprinkle this stuff over the mound, the ants grab it quickly and take it down the ant hole. The mound and ants are gone by the next day.

    1 of 5 stars  Forget it.....
    By Joseph in Macon, GA on 11/22/2011

    I had high hopes for Extinguish Plus after reading an in-depth online review on fireant control from Texas. It was listed as one of the most cost-effective treatments - and I took the bait (pun intended). I have a 3 acre lot and the recommended application rate was 1 - 1.5 lbs / acre.... so, the 4.5 lb should have been just what I needed - right? Well, it sounded like a good idea until the product arrived.... the volume of the 4.5 lbs is quite small, making it next to impossible to accurately distribute over a large area with any common hand or drop spreader. I called DoMyOwnPestControl first to see if they had any recommendations.... the naive young lady who answered my call told me MOST people buy the 20 lb bag....... that would be about 7 times the recommended application rate (and over $200)!!! I'm sure the EPA would not look favorably on such wreckless advice. I then called the manufacturer - they recommended I map out 20' by 20' grids and apply the product in small mounds at the intersection of the grid lines...... so, that's what I did - a painstaking process that took several hours. I checked the bait after application and did see ants foraging the material. It's been over 2 weeks now - and the ants are as thick as they ever were... I detect little, if any, effectiveness. I would have done just as well to throw $70+ in nickles, dimes and pennies over the lawn. Don't waste your money (or time) with this product unless you plan on overdosing the environment with a 20 lb bag.....

    4 of 5 stars  Extinguish Plus for Myrmica Rubra
    By Jeremy in Portland, Maine on 07/08/2010

    I have been studying the effectiveness of various toxins in controlling a serious northern fire ant infestation on a small island off the coast of Maine. So far, the most practical combination seems to be an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) followed by Hydramethylnon. Initially, I used Methoprene (Extinguish) and hydramethylnon (Amdro) sequentially, separated by about a week, then, a few weeks later, followed up with the two together (Extinguish-Plus). This seems to have virtually eliminated the fire ants from the treated area, at least for the present season. In another area, I used the Extinguish-Plus alone about a week ago. So far I have seen many piles of dead ant carcasses, indicating that the bait is working, but there are still plenty of worker ants busily carrying away more carcasses, so only more time will tell whether the substances used together is as good as the two used separately. I welcome the experience of others using these and other toxins.

    5 of 5 stars  Extinguish + works but you have to follow the rules...
    By Jo in Coastal North Carolina on 03/12/2013

    We have had perfect results with this product for many years. You HAVE to understand HOW it works to be successful. Our process is as follows: 1. When ambient ground temp is 65 degrees (1st week of May typically), we broadcast 2 lbs per acre (looks like nothing, but it is sufficient), on a day when no rain is expected for at LEAST 3 days following. 2. Mound treat as needed through the summer. We are bordered by farm fields that are NOT treated, the edge of the field always need "help" and we can not treat their land. 3. Broadcast a second time in late September when no rain is expected and before a cold snap hits. Soil temperature is essential.

    By Steve in Raleigh NC on 11/04/2016

    I chose this product because it is safe for use in horse pastures and it was recommended by DoMyOwnPestControl. I treated 10 mounds with this product, after 2 weeks of application the the mounds are still there and thriving. I would have at least expected the ants to move and create another mound as I have seen them do with other products. NOT recommended

    So far I have applied the fire ant bait twice in the last 3 weeks and have not seen any results of them dieing off. In fact they seem to be enlarging their territory!! Any suggestions please!!!! They are in my front yard area and at the adjacent neighbor property...

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    We are sorry that you are not seeing the results you expected from the Extinguish Plus. It is possible that the fire ants in the area are not actively foraging and, therefore, not interested in any baits. I would take a few moments to review our Fire Ant Treatment Guide which includes tips for bait and also mound drenching with insecticide: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-get-rid-of-fire-ants-a-470.html

  • 5 of 5 stars  This works in Orlando, FL
    By Meghen in Longwood, FL on 10/27/2016

    Our entire yard was full of fire ant nests. I bought this off of the positive reviews. As the instructions say to do, I waited until the fall which is late October for us in Florida. When I saw the ants coming out of the sand mounds I knew it was the right time to "feed" them. I patiently waited until the next Sunday so the ground would be damp from the sprinklers the previous night. I used a hand spreader that I'd washed out 3 weeks prior to remove all scent of the weed and feed I normally use it for. No exaggeration, the ants rushed out of the mounds to gather these granules as soon as they hit the ground. I was shocked so see dozens of ants carrying granules back into their nests. After 5 full days, I checked the front yard and there are no active nests. I'll check the back and side yards tomorrow. If you've ever been bitten or stung by a fire ant you'll agree this stuff is worth every penny to control them for even a year.

    By John in Antville Coastal Georgia on 07/01/2016

    you must follow directions! i did not use "potato chip method". i observed mound in to see if ants were moving. even when ants are still digging, not necessarily feeding, they will take this into mound. it will take about 15 minutes but some "sucker ant" will succumb and take a granule to mamma. of course if they are feeding they will take it faster. kinda reminds me of watching my "ant farm" as a kid, remember those? do NOT put down if rain is expected !!!!!

    By David in Belton, South Carolina on 06/09/2016

    this stuff works great. I did follow the directions to the letter. I even put a potato chip out to make sure the ants were foraging for food. I also bought from Lowes a small battery powered spreader for 20 bucks with the setting on #3. I'll order this product again next spring. By the way, I live in upstate South Carolina. It takes about two weeks to see the best results.

QIs Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait harmful to horses, dogs and cats?
How soon can pets be released in a treated area?

AExtinguish Plus cannot be used in areas where horses will graze. For grazing areas only the Extinguish (not the Extinguish PLUS) can be used. Extinguish Plus is safe to use around dogs and cats, they just need to be out of the area while the application is being made.

QQuestion about using fire ant granule near fruit trees?
We live in Texas, and have fire ants in many places around our yard. We also have several fruit trees in our yard, and there are fire ants close to or at the base of these trees as well. The product label says that it should not be used close to fruit bearing trees. So if I cannot apply it a few feet within the tree, won't the fire ants from the base of the tree just restart the colonies that would have been killed elsewhere in the lawn?

AExtinguish Fire Ant granular bait is a food product that the ants will be attracted to.  Although the label states to not use it near fruit bearing trees, you can apply it away from the trees in the yard and when the fire ants are out foraging for food they will find the extinguish granules and take them back to the nest.  Unfortunately there is not a fire ant product that is labeled for use on or very near fruit bearing trees.

QWhy did all mounds treated with Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait not collapse?
We treated approximately 20 mounds one dry afternoon after checking for foraging with the potato chip. Most mounds seemed to have died within a day or two (hurrah!) but a few mounds either moved or still seem active. What happened?

A

It is recommended to broadcast the treatment of Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait†instead of mound treat for best results. †This is because fire ants do not always come out from the mound area but instead have tunnels coming out 10 feet or more away from the mound.†Extinguish Plus is one of the most effective fire ant baits on the market and most folks see results within just a few days but it can take longer depending on the size of the colony. Also, Extinguish will not prevent any new colonies from moving in so treatments should be done as needed following the instructions on the product label. There are also some great tips here.

QHow often can Extinguish Plus be applied? Is it safe to use in flower beds?
I will be applying it using a hand spreader and since we have so many ant colonies developing underground (I see them when I dig in the garden) with no visible mounds yet, broadcasting seems to be the most effective solution. I don't want to kill my flowers though.

AExtinguish Plus is a bait for ants so its primarily made up of food ingredients. There is nothing in the bat that would harm your flowers or plants and you can reapply as often as needed.

QI Have fire ants in Arizona can I use Extinguish in 100 degree weather?
We have fire ants in our front and back yard. Everywhere! Not inside though thankfully. Since I am in summer it is way above 60 degrees. Can I still use this and it will work? And to make sure my dogs would be fine 2hrs after it dries?thank you!

AExtinguish Plus should only apply this product if the soil temperature is about 65 degrees, it is not going to rain within 8 hours, and the fire ants are foraging and it does not get watered in.  If you can keep your dogs from the area right application for a few hours that would be best and it would be fine after.

QWhat can you use to get rid of fire ants in a horse pasture that will not harm grazing animals?

A

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait would be a good choice for you. Extinguish Plus can be used on pasture land and there are no grazing restrictions for companion animals. Below you will see the grazing info available on the Extinguish Plus product label. Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (IGR) to kill fire ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. The result is complete fire ant colony control. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is best used in the spring or early fall, or whenever fire ants are active. The ants will feed off Extinuish Plus and spread the bait throughout the entire colony, halting the infestation within weeks. Extinguish Fire Ant Bait can be used indoors and outdoors on lawns, pasture land, rangeland, landscaped areas, and golf courses.

EXTINGUISH PLUS may be applied to grass forage
(pastures and rangeland) for the control of fire ants
only in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New
Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Use on grass forage
(pastures and rangeland) in states other than those
listed is unlawful. See Outdoor Use table for
application directions. Do not exceed 8 pounds per
acre per year or more than 4 times a year, with a
minimum re-treatment interval of 90 days. Do not bale
and cut treated pastures and rangelands for 7 days
following application. These cutting and baling hay
restrictions for pasture and rangeland do not apply
when the treated pasture and rangeland is used solely
to support COMPANION ANIMALS (e.g., horses,
llamas, etc.). Companion animals grazed on treated
areas cannot be used for food or feed. EXTINGUISH®
PLUS may be used on uncultivated, agricultural, nonfood
crop and non-agricultural land.

QI have what I think are Fire Ant killing Phorid Flies
These flies have been released by the state to help control fire ants. These pest will swarm around your head while in the yard and get into your eyes and ears. I have a Solo 451 blower and have used Talstar P and Evergreen that seems to only knock them down for a few hours. Do you have a product that will control these pest.

A

Eliminating the fire ant colony would be a good place to start using Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait. This will eliminate the food source they are searching for. You can apply a broadcast application (1.5-2 lbs. per acre) or treat individual mounds with (2-5 tablespoons per mound). **Ants must be foraging for this to work. A good way to test to see if ants are foraging is the "Potato Chip Theory"  Place a potato chip within a couple feet of the mound and if you see ant activity on the chip within a couple hours, then you know it is the right time to apply the ant bait.
