    Call me!!!

    Top Choice is a good product but must be watered in and is a little pricey but it works.

    You can buy a bag og Talstar and that should work for you.

    There are many others and your Lesco guy should steer you in the right direction.

    Just so you know that you can apply fertilizer but need a license for pesticides. However you can apply to your own yard.

    Well I have a license so no problem here.

    I thought you needed to have a license too but if it is like anything else who knows. I do know that you need a licensed to apply it to any one else's yard.

    I dont know, I just know i got the bait and the bag of granules, and it worked great. The label probably just means you need a license to apply. I dont really know, just know the ants are dead or gone.

    Gentleman

    Below are some links to past threads about this subject.

    BTW Now that I am semi retired I am writing A book at present time about Fertilizer. I plan to make it a series of Books about application. One of the most important Chapters That I am presently working on is "Material Calculations" It is a must for proper application and I hope if I ever get it published it will be a reference book that the reader may want to keep handy. Don't Hold Your Breath waiting for it's arrival at Books A Million.
