Will Maxforce Complete Granular Bait eliminate leaf cutter ants but not effect the Tarantulas?

I've got several mounds of ants over my 1/2 acre property in Tucson. I also have several Tarantula on my property, which I like because they eat scorpions, etc. So, my primary concern is get rid of the ants (leaf cutter mainly) and keep my tarantulas.


Maxforce Complete Granular Bait could pose harm to Tarantulas should they come in contact with the treated area. It has proven somewhat effective on Leaf Cutters.  Deltagard granules are labeled for leaf cutter ants. The product label recommends treating the mound directly and lightly watering the granules in. Again it may take several treatments to get the desired results. We also recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to see if they have any recommendations for products that have worked for other people in your region.
