Product Overview

Surrender Fire Ant Killer is recommended for use on non-cropland areas such as lawns, turf, gardens, ornamental plants, and trees.The unique wettable powder formulation offers long lasting residual control. It begins killing ants within minutes of application, and ant colonies will start to die off in under 48 hours. One 1 pound can will treat up to 108 ant mounds. One application of 1-2 teaspoons per mound is all that's necessary for season-long protection from fire ants as well as harvester ants. For best results, Surrender Fire Ant Killer should be applied in the morning or late evening, when ants are most active.

    fantastic multi-use product

    By Katherine on 05/20/2016

    This product works wonders! It is actually for fire ants, but it is the best thing I have ever found to get rid of those pesky German cockroaches. I and several other households have had problems getting rid of cockroaches. Someone mentioned this to my daughter, who told me about it. My house, according to a pest control company, said that my home was helpless because the roaches were living in the walls of my mobile home. I put this down all around the inside of my home. Within two hours there were dead roaches everywhere. After 3 days, I saw no live roaches. For two weeks I was sweeping up dead roaches. It has now been almost a year since I first used this product and I have not seen any roaches. But be forewarned, this stuff stinks!!!! Use a mask, remove pets and all humans for 2-4 hours after using it. The smell does go away after a few hours.

    Say bye bye to roaches

    By No on 06/06/2017

    Our home was infested with roaches (they were here before I moved in) and no amount of raid, traps, and boric acid would work. Within hours of just opening the can and sitting it out (not even sprinkling it), the bugs just started dying. After it was actually sprinkled, within a day, they were gone. It's been almost a year and we haven't even had anywhere near the same issues. Maybe we see one or two within a month as of opposed to hundreds a day. Please know, this product changed our lives. It does stink, but that is so minor in comparison to being over run by roaches. They may can survive radiation, drowning, and starvation, but they cannot survive this product.

Q
Will rain make Martins Surrender Fire Ant Killer ineffective?

After I put it on the mounds we had some pretty heavy thunderstorms pop up.

A

When using Martins Surrender Fire Ant Killer, it is only labeled to be used on mounds once per season, and this is a water-soluble product. So you would not want to re-apply per the product label to the same mound more than once per season regardless of how much rain you get.
