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.Read more ›

It DID NOT work AT ALL. The fire ants in my yard are bigger and there are even more of them.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Very effective. Better than expected - they were over my front yard but seem all gone now after one application.Published 2 months ago by Georgia
I was disappointed that the instructions were available and that it needs "watering" in after application which isn't feasible where I'm using it.Published 3 months ago by sonya
All this did was make the ants move their hill a few feet over each time.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Have re-ordered twice. Suggest buying the larger bag if you live in the South.Published 4 months ago by TJT
