I love this product. Mound treatments work well if you know where all the mounds are. Spread Amdro and the ants will find it, take it home, and it will kill the whole mound. It is not cheap but it works great...
I have an eight-acre estate in fire-ant ridden rural Louisiana. There are no other homes nearby so the fireants are not controlled on adjacent property. My location, therefore, is a particularly difficult one with regard to fire ants.
I have used Amdro fire ant bait for many years to control fire ants, which I sprinkle in the vicinity of the nest.
The nest usually dies within 48 hours of treatment.
I don't know of a better product for fire ant control.
I manage a 25 acre commercial site and have fire ants everywhere here in Little Rock, Arkansas. product description was clear, knew exactly what I was getting. I have used AMdro previously in smaller purchased quantities, but need the largest quantity I can get in mid-summer for the BEST price. This was the best price for the 25# quantity. I am actually buying my 2nd bag today.
Other reviews mention it is not working... This is a long game product for year round control. Here's a summary:
Application Rate, Broadcast: 1 – 2 pounds per acre
Speed of Control: 2 – 6 weeks
Duration of Control: 2 – 6 months, varies with reinvasion pressure; two applications per year are usually needed
