Dupont Advion Fire Ant Bait contains Indoxacarb, which kills fire ant workers and queens completely in 72 hours. It is a professional quality bait used by golf course managers, turf managers, and professional pest management companies. It will outperform almost any other fire ant bait on the market.
The selling tool here is that the application is only 1 lb per acre of land. That means that a 2 lb container will treat 2 acres of land for a mere $60 bucks. That's only $30 per acre. That is extremely inexpensive for a treatment that will affect all fire ant life forms and kill the queens.
The other product that has been popular is AWARD Fire Ant Bait. This product is also applied at 1 lb per acre, however to get the same results can take up to 72 days. Not 72 hours. For the money, Dupont Advion Fire Ant Bait is my choice and what I use at my home. Usually only 1-2 times per year.
