What is best time of year to apply Extinguish Fire Ant Bait in Central Florida (Tampa)?

And how much will I need to treat 2 acres?


Extinguish Fire Ant Bait can take 8 to 12 weeks to see results, however, you should only apply this if the soil temperature is about 65 degrees, it is not going to rain within 8 hours, and the fire ants are foraging. If they are not foraging the bait will not work. It is recommended to broadcast the treatment instead of mound treat for best results, and you should apply the product where the ground is in the sun, since this is where fire ants will nest.  You will use 1 - 1.5 lbs. per acre. Do Not Apply in the Late Fall or Winter when Ants are Not Foraging
