How effective is this product on fire ants in Texas; if so, for how long before spraying needs to be done again? Does it work well for chiggers too? Could I effectively use the Talstar P I bought from you for other pests also for chiggers and fire ants or is it better to buy this product two for these 2 pests?
Termidor SC is not a good option for fire ant control because it can only be used on or immediately next to a structure. It is not labeled to be used in the lawn. Talstar P (Talstar One) would be a good option for chiggers in the lawn. This can be broadcast across the yard. For fire ants, we would recommend a bait, Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait. This can be broadcast across the lawn or applied to individual mounds.
