Prescription Treatment Ascend Fire Ant Bait does not need to be applied over chip crumbs. Application recommendations are as follows:
OUTDOORS: Apply after dew or rainfall has dried for maximum effectiveness. For best results, do not apply if rainfall is anticipated within 4 to 6 hours after application. • Broadcast Application: Apply Ascend as evenly as possible to turf, lawns and noncrop areas at a rate of 1 lb. of bait per acre (0.4 oz. of bait per 1000 sq. ft. or 1.8 oz. of bait per 5000 sq. ft.). • Individual Mound Treatment: Use 5 to 7 tablespoons of Ascend per mound. Apply the bait as evenly as possible over the mound and for a distance of approximately 2 feet out from the base of the mound. Do not contaminate kitchen utensils with this product. LIMITATIONS: Do not use in pastures, rangeland,or croplands. INDOORS: Do not use in the food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments, restaurants or other areas where food is commercially prepared or processed. Do not use in serving areas while food is exposed or facility is in operation. • Locate Ant Activity: Follow ants back to voids. Apply bait to crevices or voids where ants are active. Use up to 5 tablespoons per treatment site in a heavily traveled area. Use less in areas with less activity or if the treatment site will not hold that much. Use a large Centrobulb Dusteror other appropriate application device to place bait in crevices or voids. Enlarging the void’s opening may be required. Repeat as necessary. Do not contaminate kitchen utensils with this product. • To Treat Plumbing Voids With Known Ant Activity: Obtain access to void and place up to 5 tablespoons inside the plumbing void. Place bait where it will remain dry. Repeat as necessary. Do not contaminate kitchen utensils with this product. • UTILITIES (such as above ground transformers, pedestal boxes, in-ground utility boxes, etc.): If fire ants are nesting or traveling inside utility boxes, place 5 to 7 tablespoons form lighter infestations or up to 2 1/2 oz. for heavy infestations on the ground or open floor area of box. Placement should be made so bait stays dry and does not contact any equipment
