Style Name: Pack of 1Size: 3.5-Pound
A lot of the negative reviews here are due to runoff after adding water. The instructions say to water gently and do not water to the point of runoff. If you're applying the granules to a flat, open area of your lawn, you'll probably have runoff if you don't go very slowly, like the instructions state. This is how I handle it:

I take a 2-inch-thick, 5-foot-long dowel (a yardstick or even a dry, dead branch would also work) and, standing as far back as possible, I pierce the top of the mound as deeply as I can. I pull the dowel back out and drop it away from the mound, then step back and wait five or so minutes. After the angry ant mob calms down, I use an old measuring cup (one no longer used for food) to pour the granules directly into and around the hole I created with the dowel. I then use an old one-gallon water jug, filled with tap water, to pour the water into the hole on top of the granules. I usually pour too fast, and end up with runoff, so I use a hand broom to sweep the wet granules and mud back onto the mound. I've never had a problem with serious runoff, even when pouring too fast, but this way I don't feel like I'm wasting any of the granules and it's not spread out all over my lawn.

I typically do this at dusk, when it's still light enough to see but late enough that my six-year-old won't be back outside. I also try to block off the area so our dog can't get to it, although I accompany him outside while the granules are still "active," just in case. It's imperative to do this around/right after dusk or late at night, because that's when the ants are closest to the surface of the mound. If you do this in late morning/early afternoon, you may not have great results.

This product works within hours. We had a tree that was infested with ants, and it killed them all overnight. I was very careful not to over-water, having read the reviews posted. I also had two fire-ant mounds and they were gone the next day, too. None of the ants have come back, either.

Nothing is completely effective at fire ant control but this product does as good a job as any killer. Baits like Amdro work the best if you have time but in a camping situation there isn't time to wait for the bait to work so this is a pretty good product to include in your camping supplies.

I have 10 acres in Central Texas and fire ants are my enemy! I am sure the serve some purpose here... Or did, until the 1930s when our government decided to spray fields to get rid of fire ants, stupidly killing some good insects too, because they went from 1 mound per acre to as many mounds as you have space for. I have tried several options, but THIS WORKS! It does not simply relocate the ants, as one popular brand makes them do, but after 1 day I checked and the hills are EMPTY! I won't be without this Fire Ant Killer for as long as there are fire ants to battle.

Fire ants are brutal here in Florida, unfortunately I live on a popular road to throw trash out of your window. So ants love my yard and the McDonald's food thrown in it. However I still ahve to mow this yard, so the day before mowing go sprinkle this stuff on the mounds, no more ant bites!

Sorry to say but this didn't kill some giant black ants in my lawn, they just walked around it. I live in Italy though, so maybe this is for American ants only? Well I tried. These giant black ants burrow in my flowers roots and kill the flowers, but the lizards hers sure like to eat them.

i like to kill ants. i sprinkled this magic dust on top of an ant hill, added a bit of water and made sure it didnt drain off.. few days later that mound was dead... as they packed up their stuff and moved 10 feet over. i proceeded to add more magic dust to the newly built condo... this time i used boiling water. so far so good.

This used to be great stuff and cost about $12/bag. Now, it's down to $4/bag, in Austin, and I know why: It absolutely does not work, anymore. I tried it on two mounds. Four days later, the ants had built even bigger mounds and were thriving. It has been returned. Too bad. The R&D folks better get back to the lab with Austin fire ants and reformulate this stuff.
