    Q
    Do crazy ants bite humans?
    The insects I see do bite. They appear to have their nest inside our electrical panel in the kitchen, possibly the threshold at our entry door (there is a slight gap there, but I do not actually see these insects in this area. I will repair this threshold.) They also appear in the living room, bedroom and bathroom counters. Can bites from these crazy ants cause illness in humans? If bombing would help, what should we use? Thanks in advance for your help.
    A
    We do not recommend using a bug bomb to treat for crazy ants. They actually do not have a stinger like a fire ant but can bite humans. We recommend speaking to your doctor if you feel like you have gotten ill after a bite or if you have any allergic reactions to ant bites. They can build nests and cause damage to areas where there are electrical wiring etc. We would recommend that you treat using the products in our Crazy Ant Kit. It would be better to use a bait labeled for crazy ants like the Advion Ant Bait Gel inside in areas you see them trailing in addition to the kit.

    Q
    What can I use to get rid of "piss" ants?
    I have been completely taken over by these little buggers! They've been in my house, my sheds, my truck, my yard, my grill, and in my trees. They are absolutely everywhere! No matter where I walk, I see trails of ants.

    Please see our Crazy ant kit.  Persistent ants find the bait matrix used in InVict Blitz Ant Granules irresistably delicious and they take the granules containing the powerful active Imidacloprid right into the heart of the colony destroying it from within. As for the grill and car you could bait around them not in them.

    Q
    How much land does the Rasberry / Carribean Crazy Ant Kit cover?
    I have a little over an acre how many of these will I have to buy
    A
    The amount of coverage all depends on how you are treating. Termidor is labeled only to be applied around the exterior perimeter of structures. The Invict is applied at a rate of 1lb per 1000 sq. feet and the dust is used for cracks and crevices indoors. 2oz covers 200 sq. feet. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Q
    Instrutions
    Just reieved the Crazy Ant kit from you consisting of the S, BlitZ & CimeX. What procedure and order should I use In applying each. SC first, then BlitZ and finally CimeX?
    A
    Please refer to our article How to Get Rid of Crazy Ants. This article explains in detail where and when to apply the spray, dust, and granules. Please be sure to also remove materials such as stacked or piled lumber, stones, bricks, leaf litter, heavy mulch, and other debris that serve as potential ant harborages should be removed as far from the structure as possible. Trim the branches of trees, shrubs, and other vegetation that may serve as ant highways so they do not touch the structure. Also, please be aware that Termidor is for spot treating colonies and trails and not for broadcast application. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Are any of the kit products harmful by contact or ingestion?
    We have a dog who has a habit of sniffing and tasting almost everything.
    A
    Termidor in the Rasberry / Carribean Crazy Ant Kit will not be harmful after it dries. The Cimexa and Invict Blitz should not harm your dog as long as your dog does not ingest the whole container full. When applied as labeled there is only a large enough amount active ingredient to treat small insects.
