I think I have fire ants, but I am not sure. Will Maxforce FC Fire Ant Bait work on other ants?

Maxforce Hydramethylnon fire ant killer has worked well in the past. It has been discontinued and this is its replacement. Does the new product have the same spectrum of activity against various ants?


Maxforce FC Fire Ant Bait is only labeled for the red imported fire ant. While other ants may take the bait, this product was either not tested for them or the success rate was not high enough for the manufacturer to include them on the label. We do have a product called Maxforce Complete Granular Bait that is labeled for most ants including fire ants and it contains hydramethylnon which has worked well for you in the past.
