Treatment for Fire Ants:
What a mean, nasty pest to encounter! When you find a fire ant nest, take a long stick and jab it down into the middle of the mound. Stir it around a few times to get the ants boiling out and to get the stick as far down into the ground as possible. Leave the stick in the mound. (Make sure no ants crawl up the stick to get you and also watch your feet for the ants from underground.)
Spray Greenbug Ready to Use formula or the Greenbug Concentrate formula at the correct dilution rate on any ants emerging from the mound so that you can get close to the stick. Using the stick as an opportunity to get deep within the mound, pour Greenbug down the stick (no more than a slow dribble) so that it goes deep within the nest. The amount used is determined by the size of the mound. A mound that is 2 feet wide and 1 foot high will require about ½ cup of Greenbug Ready to Use. One application is usually enough. However, some fire ant mounds go to the left or right underground which is not obvious from the surface. Check the nest next day by twirling the stick around. If ants boil up again, poke around in the soil to determine the location underground and repeat the process as above.
