  • Yes, we have them every year it seems, in our back yard. We have tried some kind of spray and a powder, but they always seem to come back. If you have any suggestions on what works the best, I would be interested...

  • fire ants, yes and those tiny sugar ants come in for moisture now , they congregate around the sink faucets, drains etc. Bug stop works pretty good but have to reapply every couple weeks.
    for fire ants, we broadcast" over and out" and have no problem after that. We've used that brand 3 summers in a row and like it way better than amdro.
    You must follow directions though and wet it in right after or it won't be nearly as effective...we have no ants, fleas or anything in our yard.
