How do I treat red flying ants outside the home?
Once a year I get thousands of red flying ants (winged and un-winged) outside the home around my deck usually in September. I feel fairly confident they are not termites as they have three bodies instead of two. Which product do you recommend I use in a sprayer? Thanks for assistance.
Bifen It would be a great option for a general pest control spray around the home regularly to kill the ants when they swarm and emerge, as well as any other insects in the area. You would mix it at the rate of 1oz per gallon of water and spray it around the foundation, lawn, bushes, trees, eaves and edges of the home, window and door frames, etc. Bifen It will hold up to the outdoor elements roughly 30-60 days.
