Killing Those Dad Gum Fire Ants

October 23, 2014

The shifting fall weather means fire ant mounds are showing up around these parts.   They wreak havoc on your lawn, and make it next to impossible to feel safe and enjoy your outdoor space with friends and family.  I have had great success with the Ortho two step approach to kill the fire ants I see and control the ones I don’t see.

This one/two punch does the trick for me against fire ants.

Step 1: I use Ortho Orthene Fire Ant Killer for mound treatment.

Step 2: I spread Ortho Max Fire Ant Killer Broadcast Granules across my entire yard.
