I was talking with the local university entomologist about what the best approach to fire ants was. From what I gathered he said topchoice or qualipro's generic was the best but most expensive option. He then said the use of baits, either Advion or Award, was a close second. Said it wouldn't provide the quality of control, but would be a lot cheaper option. Both of those are broadcast at a rate of 1.5 lbs/acre...How do you spread something than low???

So I guess you could offer 2 programs for control
Option 1 would be Topchoice with possiblility of free call backs, so 1 maybe 2 apps
Option 2 would be Advion or Award twice a year(sprind and fall) and mound treatment in summer, so 3 apps

Anyone used any of these?
