Controlling Fire AntsSummer has just arrived and so has fire ants. When you see fire ants on your lawn and garden, and around your home, it’s time to implement a control plan. Smith Farm Supply carries a wide variety of ant control products that include Surrender, Knockout Granular Fire Ant Killer, and Over n’ Out Advanced Fire Ant Killer.

Knock Out Fire Ant Killer acts fast and kills fire ants immediately. It also kills and controls other types of ants, fleas, ticks, crickets, grasshoppers, and other insect pests. It has a unique formula that penetrates the soil quickly to kill bugs on lawns, around home perimeters, ornamentals, and flower gardens. It’s simple to apply – just sprinkle the granules around ant mounds or where other pests are found, and then water them. Read the label for specific application instructions for different pests and locations. For best results, water the treated area right after applying Knock Out Fire Ant Killer.

Surrender Fire Ant Killer is highly effective on non-cropland areas like turf, lawns, trees, gardens, and ornamental plants. The unique wettable powder formulation offers long-lasting residual control. It kills ants in minutes and within 48 hours, ant colonies will start to die off. One 1 pound can will treat up to 108 ant mounds. All you need is one application of 1-2 teaspoons per mound to have season-long protection from fire ants as well as harvester ants. For best results, the application should occur in the morning or late evening when ants are most active.

Over‘n Out®! Advanced Fire Ant Killer fights fire ants in two different ways.

  • As a broadcast treatment, it kills on contact and protects against new invasions for up to six months.
  • As a mound treatment, it kills the mound in 15 minutes and the queen within 24 hours, guaranteed.
