Then apply product back and forth in the longest direction. turn the spreader off and on at the edge of each strip to prevent uneven application. Overlap the throw pattern by about a foot to ensure complete coverage.
Drop Spreader: Apply granules with spreader going in the same direction as the longest part of the lawn. Apply two (2) header strips first. To ensure through coverage, make sure to overlap wheel marks. Shutoff the spreader when finished or when the header strips have been reached.
I started using Over n Out for the first time last year. Before , my treatments, with other products, might have lasted maybe until the first rain. I had mounds so big, that the lawn mover wouldn't pass over them. I noticed after the first application of Over n Out, the ants were gone. You could tap on the mounds, and there was no activity. Last fall, I made my second application, still no ants. Yea. I do not normally give recommendations, but I have found myself, actually telling my neighbors about this product. When I am in a store and see a person searching for a fire ant killer, I will stop and recommend this product. I know it works! Thank you.
Which product is best for fire ants in a large lawn, the Talsta PL or GardenTech Over N Out?
Cost and effectiveness is more important.
Although both products are extremely successful at eradicating fire ants, the Garden Tech Over N Out will provide you will a longer lasting residual, a full 6 months of fire ant control. This kind of long term residual will make the Garden Tech Over N Out much more cost efficient that Talstar PL which only guarantees effectiveness up to 3 months and is more expensiver per bag.
When will it be safe to allow horses on grass after Garden Tech Over N Out Fire Ant Killer application?
We are looking to purchase a horse. My husband treated the yard one week ago with over n out advanced fire ant killer. When will it be safe to allow a horse to graze in my yard?
Garden Tech Over N Out Fire Ant Killer is not labeled to be applied in grazing areas. It is not recommended to introduce a horse into the area until at least a year after application. For next year, you could a product called Extinguish which does not have a withdrawel period.
Extinguish Fire Ant Bait - 3 - 5 TBL per mound or 1 - 1.5 lbs per acre **Ants must be foraging for this to work. You should not apply this product in the late fall or winter of ants are not foraging...it will not work! Also, bait must remain dry. Do not apply if it is going to rain within 8 hours.
