I was wondering if I can use Revenge Granular Ant Bait along my fence by strawberry or blackberry plants?
Also around individual nests near berry plants, or around an apple tree trunk? Around Apple tree trunk as a barrier? Just concerned rain washing this into plant we eat fruit from. Works great elsewhere!
How does this Revenge Granular Ant Bait work? Do the ants carry it back to the nest?
According to the manufacturer, yes Revenge Granular Ant Bait works by providing a transfer kill. The ants do take the active ingredient back to the colony, feeding the queen to eliminate the colony that way.
