Extinguish® Plus fire ant bait can help protect nurseries against fire ants. The product combines the killing speed of an adulticide and the long-lasting control of an insect growth regulator (IGR). With its two-way action, Extinguish® Plus fire ant bait is economical to use with a great price per acre and meets the USDA fire ant quarantine requirement.
The adulticide, Hydramethylnon, in Extinguish® Plus bait starts killing worker ants soon after ingestion. Noticeable reduction in the number of active workers is seen within a week. The insect growth regulator (IGR), (S)-methoprene, sterilizes the queen to prevent rebound and mound movement. Colony reduction begins immediately and colony elimination may be seen within 2 weeks. Extinguish® Plus bait features a 1.5-lb usage rate, and the product is available in 1.5-lb, 4.5-lb and 25-lb sizes.
