I have Nubian dairy goats I'm breeding for milk and soap making. We also have horses and chickens and dogs. Can this product be used with these animals and especially pregnant dairy goats? I was told it passes through the body. Is this not true. I see in the directions it's not to be used on meat animals. So it must be absorbed by the animals. Thank you.
While you can use Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait in pastures where you have companion animals, it cannot be used in grazing fields where you will use the animal for food of any sort. Since you are using the goat's milk we recommend using Extinguish Fire Ant Bait which contains an IGR (insect growth regulator). IGR's are different from conventional products which provide a direct kill to fire ants. IGR's work by affecting queen reproduction which means the effects of the treatment may not be immediately evident. Though slower in action, control is complete without the concern of rebounding or movement of the colony to another location. Reduction in colony size can be seen beginning at 3 weeks with colony elimination within 8 to 10 weeks. When existing workers die, replacement workers are not produced resulting in starvation and elimination of the queen and colony.
