Is there any control for these nuisance ants in turf? Does Fipronil work on them?
Locating and blocking their entry point may control ants found inside the home. Nests are easily conspicuous due to their location in open areas, and are easily destroyed due to their shallow structure. Sweet insecticidal baits are most effective, though the baiting technique may take several days to rid the entire colony.
Fip works on all social pest but may be against lable
Pyramid ants do not enter homes in Florida. They prefer the hottest parts or the lawn, notice you always find them in the direct sunlight areas? Fipronil will have no more effect that anything else as far as granular applications. I have gotten great control, and there is the key word, control, with a granular application of Talstar granuals and a power spray application of Dragnet termiticide/insecticide. Topchoice and the other granular baits containing fipronil will control only imported fire ants. I have tried, and wasted the product to control them.
spray em with termidor...
You can treat them with Termidor, PROVIDED they are within 6 feet of the foundation of the home. IF you are treating them with in ten feet of the home, you are now entering the possibilty of being fined for performing General Houshold Pest Control without a license. Termidor is labeled for ant control 2 times per year, 6 feet out and 3 feet up the wall. NOT FOR LAWNS.
