What can I use on Argentine ants around a lake?
Have trillions of ants around lake. Says I can't use Termidor SC within 15 feet of lake. HELP.
You are right, Termidor SC cannot be used close to a lake. In fact, Termidor SC can only be used on or immediately adjacent to a structure and should not be used at all out in the yard for ant control according to the product label. Your best bet for controlling the Argentine ants by a lake would be to use ant baits placed in ant bait stations. Advance 375A Ant Bait Granules and Gourmet Liquid ant bait can be used in the Ant No More Bait Stations. By using two different kinds of bait at once you can be sure you are offering at least one bait that they will readily accept. The Ant No More bait station will help protect the baits from non-target animals, weather and will prevent the bait from entering the lake.
