    Misleading - Probably need to double/triple application

    By Tim on 10/08/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I used as directed to treat individual amounts and of all the many ant hills I treat, only 1 very small hill was "extinguish"ed. In fact, the hills have now spread and multiplied so not only am I out $25 for a wasted effort, I now need to spend extra on another application. Upon application, I could observe the ants readily feeding and harvesting the bait - so it was certainly attractive, but ultimately mostly ineffective. Very disappointed because I read many great reviews on this product. Since I am trying to keep to a budget, I looked for a product that would do the job in one shot.

    Not to impressed

    By Steve on 08/22/2012

    I have treated the mound and broadcast in the yard and haven't seen any good results. Didn't work for me.

    Extinguish Plus Did Not Work As Well As Extinguish

    By William on 09/29/2017

    I have used extinguish with good results. The Extinguish Plus does not work as well. It only got rid of 50% of the fire ant colonies. I suspect the insecticide in the plus kills the workers before the bait reaches the queen. I assume she never receives the IGR. It would be better if the plus is dropped and the original Extinguish is brought back in a size suitable for home owners. In addition, I need the product quickly. Otherwise I would have gone to Amazon where the price was lower.

    Disappointed in North Florida

    By Alan on 11/20/2020

    This product was recommended to me by DoMyOwn and I have had very poor results. I followed the directions but not much luck. One time when I put it out it did rain soon after and I really didn't factor that in with my results. The other mounds have been, at best, similar to other less expensive baits where the ants just relocated very close to where they were before the treatment. Disappointed in North Florida.

    Gets them packing

    By David on 03/19/2023

    This product definitely makes a mound inactive within a few days, but it seems the ants just pack up and move to a different spot. For every mound I kill, a new one appears within a week. It's a never ending battle.
