    Hi Guys, I moved into a new house last November and it has grubs bad in backyard. Well I treated it for the grubs a couple weeks ago and put peat & seed down last saturday. Well now theres a ton of ant mounds and ants. What can I put down and will it stop the seed from popping. Thanks

    See what the store has for ant control , a spray is what you'll need .
    No baits

    On second thought , if you bait them away from the new seeded lawn , then maybe use bait

    Diazinon should work.

    I have used talstar for ants and had good results.

    Talstar works well, just look for "bifenthrin" as an active ingrediant. I'm assuming your a homeowner, look for Ortho Max insecticide, it contains what you looking for. Good Luck

    Topchoice, Ceasefire, Award, and Talstar are all good choices for fire ant control. Good luck.
