Would Maxforce Complete Granular Bait be a good choice to treat for leaf cutter ants?


Yes, Maxforce Complete Granular Bait would be a good option for leaf cutter ants. Leaf cutter ants can be a very difficult pest to get rid of. The colonies can be large and the ants make their own food, so poison baits only have limited effects on this species. According to several university websites, Maxforce Complete Granular Bait is effective, though usually baiting will only eliminate about 30% of a large colony in one treatment and several applications will be necessary. Deltagard G  Granules are also an option.  The product label recommends treating mounds directly and lightly watering the granules in.  Again, it may take several treatments for complete eradication.
