I'm looking for a good granular ant killer to broadcast in the yard.
I treat the ant hills in the yard and more just pop up. They're not in the house but I find dead ones under the house where I sprayed Cyper WP.
Maxforce Complete Granular Bait is a very good granular product for ants. It will treat various types of ants including, Acrobat, Argentine, Big Headed, Carpenter, Cornfield, Field, imported and native Fire Ants, Ghost, Harvester, Odorous House Pavement, Pharaoh, and Thief Ants. This bait can be used inside refillable bait stations and/or sprinkled around the structure. Around structures the total application should not exceed 4-8 oz per 200-400 linear feet (or 0.5 oz per 25 linear feet). A typical application would be 4-8 oz adjacent to an average sized home of 200-400 linear feet. Be sure to treat areas such as porches, patios, driveways, sidewalks, flower gardens, landscape timbers and around trees, wood piles, air conditioning units and garbage receptacles. Be sure to put the bait in areas where you have not sprayed so that it does not become contaminated.
