Mariann from Gonzales, Louisiana writes,

Is there a specific time limit after Hi-Yield Bug Blaster II Bifenthrin Granules has been applied that it has to be watered in?

I was told that once it's applied, the granules must be watered in really well within 4 hours otherwise the product loses it's effectiveness in sunlight. My yard is almost an acre and it's impossible to apply and water in the whole yard under 4 hours. Also, the granules don't dissolve on hard soil no matter how much it's watered in. Will it still keep fire ants away? Thanks

Answer:

According to the product label for Hi-Yield Bug Blaster II Bifenthrin Granules, they must be watered in immediately after application for best results.  They must be watered in in order to release the active ingredient.  If you do not feel that you will have adequate time to get the product watered in after application, you could always treat the property in smaller sections at a time.  You may also want to visit our Fire Ant Control page to see other options for treating fire ants as well.
