Lisa from Garland, Texas writes,

Which product(s) should I use for massive infestation ants outdoors? (no fire ants)

I literally have ant trails on every step, tree,crack, and edge of my yard (the small ones like carpenter or pharoah) Can you tell me exactly which product(s) and how much to apply? Do I use some sort of station or apply it directly to the ground? Do I apply it next to any part of the ant trail? How close? How far apart from each other? Any help is greatly appreciated! These ants are taking over my entire property!


We recommend using our outdoor Ant Kit. The Outdoor Ant Bait kit comes with 4x Antopia ant Bait Stations and 2 x quarts of Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait . Ants will enter the stations, consume the bait and because of the delayed kill, will take it back to the ant colonies to share with the other ants. Placing the bait in the Antopia Ant Bait Stations will help keep it fresh, protect from non-target animals and also stop rain from washing it away. The Antopia Ant Bait Stations should be placed about 50 ft apart. You can also supplement the treatment by applying a protein bait such as Advance 375A Ant Bait Granules in your yard to help eliminate any ants that do not accept carbohydrate baits like the Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait.
