I have a fire ant problem.
Per the product label for Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor 10% Permethrin Insecticide: Mix 1 1/2 fl. ozs. in 1 gallon of water to treat one mound. Apply the solution as a gentle rain to each Fire ant mound using a sprinkler can. Thoroughly wet the mound and the surrounding area to a 4-foot diameter. For best results, apply in cool weather, 65°-80° F, or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Do not disturb the mound prior to treatment. Treat all mounds in the vicinity, and treat all colonies which have not yet constructed mounds. Do not use equipment that produces a pressurized spray since this will disturb Fire Ants and cause migration, reducing product effectiveness.
