    Whats everyone using? How many gpm's? Do you also use bait near foundations? I like bifen, just wondering what else people are using

    do a search it's been asked too many times. i'm not being mean just trying to help. opinions are like a-holes, everyone has one (on here most have more than one).
    bifen always comes out the big winner as far as cost and results more gpm the better results. most here try for 3- 5 gal/min

    Do you need to control them?
    What is the population?
    I have some anthills in a few lawns I mow but nothing near consideration of a insecticide control.

    If its structual ant control, spray the foundation with termidor.

    Yes I need to control them. Tons of ant hills in lawns around here. Definitely warrants insecticide treatment.
