Yes, Essentria G Granules is labeled for ants and it can be applied as an exterior perimeter treatment, a mound treatment and as a turf/landscape treatment. According to the product label, FOR EXTERIOR PERIMETER TREATMENTS: Apply uniformly to ground area 5 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to structure. Apply 2 to 5 lbs per 1,000 sq ft (rates depend on the severity of infestation). Repeat as necessary. FOR ANT MOUNDS/NESTS: Sprinkle 1 to 2 teaspoons over the nest. For red imported fire ant mounds, use up to 1 /2 cup (8 tablespoons) over each mound and up to 2 feet around each mound. FOR TURF/LANDSCAPE TREATMENTS: Apply at a rate of 3 to 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet. For best results, water grass with 1 /8 to 1 /4 inch of water but stop watering before puddling occurs. Repeat as necessary.
