Thomas from Port Charlotte, Fl writes,
Is it safe to spray Permethrin 0.5% around the edge of my in ground pool to keep ants out?
We do not recommend to apply any insecticide along the edge of the pool, due to possible run off. We recommend that you use an ant bait granule such as Maxforce Complete Ant Bait in your yard surrounding the pool to help control the ants before they try to go for a swim.
