I live in SE Texas and have been fighting fire ants all my life. This works. I have tried it several ways: dry on the mound, with a little water first then the product then a little more water, product then a little water. Water first then product then a little more water works the best. About 70% of the time the mound is killed first application. When it doesn't, small survival that does not move more than a few feet and dead with a 2nd application. Highly recommend great stuff.
My yard was taken over by moles. There were these huge hills that were so unattractive. I purchased the Talstar N Nursery Granular Insecticide, and, after two applications there were no more signs of moles. With added help from the heavens, a heavy shower of rain got rid of the molehills. This product is fantastic.
