We have tried several products that were guaranteed to kill the ants and did not. Will Sevin Insecticide Granules do the trick ?

Our yard is full of ants. Please point us in the right direction.


Sevin Insecticide Granules will work to eliminate ants that come into contact with treated areas. Most of the time when folks indicate they have tried several products for ant control with no success the problem usually can be traced back to the types of products they have been trying. We recommend that you select a product that can be transferred back to the colony instead of a product that is effective only on the ants that touch treated surfaces. Ant baits are always a good choice. We recommend you offer both a granular bait and a liquid bait to suit the feeding needs of different species of ants. You can apply the baits in Ant No More Bait Stations so that the bait will stay fresh for a long time. The ants will enter the bait station and pick up the bait that suits them and carry it back to the colony and share it with the other ants. Baiting will wipe out the entire colony rather than just the foragers that are usually killed by topical applications of insecticide.
