Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait - 2.5 lb (NOT FOR SALE IN MN)

The IGR will affect the queen's ability to be able to reproduce; therefore, no new workers will be formed once the old workers die. Usually in a three-week period, you will be able to see a great decrease in the size of the colony, eventually leading to the elimination of the whole colony.

Methods of Application
General application during heat of the day or when rain is expected within 6 hours of application will reduce the effectiveness of this product. Moisture reduces the attractiveness of the bait in wet areas. In areas of heavy infestation, repeat applications may be necessary 10 to 12 weeks following the initial application.
1. Individual Mound Treatments - Treat all visible mounds with 3 to 5 tablespoons of EXTINGUISH per mound. To treat the mounds, sprinkle the adjacent areas of the mound, applying evenly in a manner to encompass the mound to a perimeter of 4 feet. Do not disturb the mound during application. Worker ants will locate the bait quickly and begin taking it back to the mound.
2. Broadcast Applications - Apply EXTINGUISH to areas at the rate of 1 to 1.5 pounds of product per acre (3.5 tablespoons/1000 ft2) using suitable application equipment. Backpack, hand, or motorized mechanical equipment may be used. No withdrawal or grazing restrictions are necessary on treated areas.
EXTINGUISH may be used as a preventative application to reduce the buildup of fire ants into unwanted areas. Two to three broadcast applications per year are recommended to prevent the encroachment and subsequent development of new mounds into an area. Repeat applications may be made as often as fire ants are observed.
3. Hopper Blend - Blend EXTINGUISH with other fire ant bait products such as ProBait Amdro Pro, or other bait products labeled for fire ant control. When blending products, the more restrictive label will apply. Use a 50/50 mix to blend EXTINGUISH and other bait. For broadcast applications, mix the required amount of bait so that the application is made using 0.75 lbs. EXTINGUISH and 0.75 lbs. of other bait for a total of 1.5 lbs. of total bait per acre. For mound treatments, blend a 50/50 mix of EXTINGUISH and other bait and apply at the rate of 3-5 tablespoons per mound.
4. Refillable Bait Stations - EXTINGUISH may be used in refillable bait stations. Place up to 1 oz of EXTINGUISH per refillable bait station. Locate stations along the perimeter of a structure or fence line with 1 station every 15-30 linear feet. Locate stations near potential ant entry points of a structure or near locations where ants are a problem. Examples include: weep holes, foundation vents, stairs, decks, patios, picnic areas, utility areas, and other areas frequented by ants. Inspect stations frequently and replenish bait if soiled or wet. Affix a sticker to bait station indicating the contents.
Use EXTINGUISH indoors in homes, residences (apartments, nursing homes), commercial buildings and warehouses, and any other structures where ants may enter. Also for use in non-food/feed areas of institutions, restaurants, commercial food processing areas, including poultry and livestock operations. Apply bait as a crack, crevice, and void treatment or to areas that are inaccessible such as attics, crawlspaces, and wall voids. Apply 0.25 ~ 0.50 oz per crack, crevice, or void. For use in attics or crawlspaces, use 0.25 oz per 100 square feet in those areas that are inaccessible to children or pets.
