    Q
    How many months of treatment does the Outdoor Ant Kit include?
    A
    There is not a set number of months that the kit will last as it will depend on the level of ant activity in your yard, how many colonies there are that need to be eliminated, and how quickly they consume the bait you put down. The Termidor SC concentrate bottle that comes in the kit will make 25 gallons of finished solution, so depending on how big your home is to spray around the foundation will depend on how many months worth of treatment you will receive from it.

    Q
    Can Termidor SC be used in a tow-behind tank sprayer?
    I need to cover large areas of my yard to kill ants.
    A

    Since Termidor SC is not labeled to be used in lawns, this application would not be recommended.  It could only be used in a tow behind if you are spraying directly around the foundation of the home, 1 to 2 feet up and out.  For ants in the yard, the baits in the Outdoor Ant Kit would be your better treatment option.

    Q
    Which ant control product should I use underneath my citrus trees?
    They are small black ants and our trees are near our house and they keep coming into our house.

    Best solution would be our Outdoor Ant Kit.  The stations would be used with the bait under the trees and the Taurus SC would be used as a perimeter spray around the home, 1 to 2 feet up and out.

    Q
    Can I use this kit for control of ants on my fig trees?
    They seem to know when a fig is ripe and attack it before I can pick them. What product can l use.
    A

    If the ants are clearly attracted to the figs, then a sweet or liquid ant bait would imitate the sweet food they are seeking. The Maxforce Quantum Ant Bait that is in the Outdoor Ant Kit would be a great choice to use in stations near the tree to provide a food source before they are able to get to the fruit. Taurus SC should only be used around the structure, however, it will help with general ant control in the area.
