Q&A Home

Randy writes,

The area around my house has become infested with Alleghany Mound ants. Nothing I do seems to work.

MotherEarth Granular was recommended. Will it attract and kill these ants? Will they carry it back to their nest? Their mounds are very difficult to find, so I need to be able to cover a large area.


We recommend doing a direct application of a residual insecticide such as Tengard SFR to the mound. Using a shovel, scrape away the top of the mound and pour one gallon of the diluted Tengard into the mound. Unfortunately we cannot find one bait that has been labeled for Alleghany Mound ants.
