Biodegradable Fire Ant Control
Orange Guard Fire Ant Control will eradicate fire ants without risking the health of your family, pets or the environment. It is EPA registered, OMRI listed and on the FDA GRAS (generally recognized as safe) list. This water based contact insecticide and repellent can be applied full strength or diluted 1:3 for increased coverage.
Mode of Action: It works by dissolving the waxy coating on the ant's (or other pest's) exoskeleton, which clogs the spiracles (how they breathe), and they suffocate. The active ingredient, d-limonene, is a monoterpene used by plants to keep pests away.
