Bait at 1.5 pounds per acre probably means active ingredient of 1.5 pounds. If it was a 1 percent bait, that would require 150 pounds per acre, about 3.4 pounds per thousand sqft.
That is an easy quick job with a ride on spreader. And if you wanted to stop and squirt some liquid on the mounds--so much the better.
No personal experience with fire ants--and I am OK with that.
