How to Use
Sprinkle dry powder over each mound (Refer to label for amount to use). Do not water-in. Try not to disturb the mound while treating.
When to Apply
For best results, apply when ants are active. Application made under prolonged hot and dry conditions may be ineffective due to location of ants deep in the nest. Do not apply during heavy dew or just before a rain. Treat new mounds as they appear.
