One Jug Treats 108,900 Square Feet With Precor (Methoprene) IGR
Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait contains an insect
growth regulator (IGR) with specific activity to fire ants. The IGR
is contained in an attractive bait that foraging fire ant workers take back to the mound
to feed to other workers and the queen. (Methoprene is the same active ingredient
used in Precor IGR, indoor flea control) IGRs are different from conventional
products which provide a direct kill to fire ants. IGRs work by affecting
queen reproduction. The effects of the treatment may not be immediately evident.
IGRs are slower in activity than conventional products. Though slower in
action, control is complete without the concern of rebounding or movement of the colony to
another location. Reduction in colony size can be seen beginning at three weeks with
colony elimination within 8 to 10 weeks after application of Extinguish Professional Fire
Ant Bait. When existing workers die, replacement workers are not produced, resulting
in starvation and elimination of the queen and colony.
Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait may be used as a preventative application to reduce the buildup of fire ants into unwanted areas. Two to three broadcast applications per year are recommended to prevent the encroachment and subsequent development of new mounds into an area. Repeat applications of Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait may be made as often as fire ants are observed.
Avoid application of Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait during heat of the day or when rain is expected within 6 hours of application. Avoid application to wet areas as moisture reduces the attractiveness of the bait. In areas of heavy infestation, repeat applications may be necessary 10 to 12 weeks following the initial treatment. The following application methods can be used individually or in combination.
