I've read that Cyper TC works great for fire ant control. Is this true?
I have an infestation of fire ants, and the solutions from Home Depot and Lowe's haven't really touched it. I am looking for a solution to treat an acre or so of land that has been neglected for years and is well established with fire ant colonies. Also, once dried is it safe for small pets?
Cyper TC is labeled for fire ants and will do a good job if you follow the product label. According to the product label, you should apply 1-2 gallons of diluted solution to each mound and treat in the 4 ft diameter immediately around each mound very early in the morning or late in the evening (do not treat in the heat of the day when the ants will likely be very deep an will not contact the insecticide). Pets should be out of the area while you do the treatment and they can safely return as soon as the area is dry.
