Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait, 4.5 LB
Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait contains an insect growth regulator (IGR) with specific activity to fire ants and Hydramethylnon insecticide.
Hydramethylnon is a slow acting insecticide that will kill ants slowly, giving them time to share the bait with other members of the fire ant colony. It works by disrupting the production of energy in an insect's cells. Methoprene effects the queen ants' reproduction.
Ant colonies require many workers to take care of all workers, the colony's brood and care for the queen. Without sufficient amount of workers, a colony will eventually crash.
By combining Methoprene and Hydramethylnon in an ant bait, the entire fire ant colony can be killed without the use of chemicals that would be toxic to grazing animals.
NOTE: The original "Extinguish Fireant Bait" contained only Methoprene and could be used on any pasture or graze land. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait can still be used in pastures but for companion animals, only.
Companion animals grazed on treated areas cannot be used for food or feed.
Extinguish Plus bait may be used on uncultivated, agricultural, nonfood crop and non-agricultural land.
