The Two-Step Method
What is the Two-Step Method?
The expert-recommended Two-Step Method to fire ant control is one of the best proven approaches to effectively manage fire ants, which involves broadcasting a bait over your entire yard and then treating individual mounds with granules.
Step 1: Broadcast AMDRO Kills Fire Ants Yard Treatment Bait over the entire yard to kill the colony in both the hidden and visible mounds, as well as for season long control.
Step 2: Target individual "problem" mounds with AMDRO Kills Fire Ants Fire Ant Bait.
Why is this method so effective?
Bait is considered the best method for killing ants since bait works even when you can't find the nest. Unlike contact pesticides, bait can wipe out the entire colony by destroying the queen. The bait is designed to taste like food, so it is enticing to ants. Once worker ants find the bait, they bring it back to be shared with the queen and the rest of the colony. Once the queen and other ants eat it, the whole mound dies. In order to ensure that the bait is shared with all the ants in the colony, there is a delayed reaction before the bait begins to take its full effect and kill all the ants in the colony. Therefore, this method is more effective than contact killers since bait is shared with the entire colony, while contact killers will only kill fire ants that come into direct contact with the product.
With AMDRO, it's GAME OVER for fire ants.
Tips for Effective Two-Step Treatment
- Fire Ant treatments are most effective when ants are active.
- Seasonal activity peaks from Spring through Fall, when soil temperatures are 60 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
- Begin Two-Step Treatment early in the morning, when ants are active.
- Due to the active ingredients in baits, there is a delayed reaction in when it begins to take effect.
- The queen typically dies within a week and the entire colony dies within two weeks.
- For best results, do not use fire ant bait during periods of rain. The bait will go rancid when wet, which reduces its effectiveness.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between fire ants and other ants?
The primary difference between fire ants and other ants is that fire ants have the ability to sting their victims, which can result in painful blisters. Additionally, the common household ants are more attracted to sugar, while fire ants tend to be attracted to foods high in fat.
Why is fire ant bait better than a contact killer?
Bait is considered to be a more effective method of killing fire ants, as opposed to contact killers, because ants will share the bait with the queen and other ants, killing the entire colony. Once the queen and other ants eat it, the whole mound dies. Alternatively, contact killers will only kill fire ants that come into direct contact with the product.
How long does ant bait take to work?
Given that ant bait is intended to be disguised as food, it has a built-in delay that gives foraging ants time to take it back to the mound to share. Once the queen and other ants eat it, the whole mound dies. Typically, the bait will begin to kill the queen within one week of application and will kill the colony within two weeks of application.
Where are fire ants typically located?
The heaviest concentrations of fire ants are found in the South. However, fire ants can also be found in the following states: CA, NV, AZ, NM, TX, OK, MO, AR, LA, MS, TN, KY, GA, AL, FL, SC, NC and VA.
