Orange Guard Fire Ant Control will eradicate fire ants without risking the health of your family, pets or the environment because all the ingredients are on the FDA GRAS list (generally recognized as safe). Orange Guard Fire Ant Control is water based, so further dilution is easy. Allowed for use in organic production, Orange Guard Fire Ant Control can be applied full strength, but in a test it worked just as well when diluted 3 parts of water to 1 of Orange Guard Fire Ant Control. It works by dissolving away the waxy coating on the ant's exoskeleton, which clogs the spiracles (how they breathe), and they suffocate.
Method of Application:
Puncture the mounds and then saturate them, using 1/2 gallon of either full strength or diluted (3 parts of water to 1 part Orange Guard Fire Ant Control). Dilution does not harm grass and covers approximately 8 mounds.
As a perimeter control, use full strength, saturating the ground around the area you wish to protect from fire ants. However, at full strength Orange Guard Fire Ant Control will damage grass.
