Summer is nearly here and so are the fire ants. Fire ants are showing up in lawns, landscapes and inside of homes all over the area. If you have seen evidence of fire ants emerging in your yard or around your house–it’s time to apply granule with your broadcast spreader.
Russell Feed & Supply offers a variety of ant control, including Amdro, Surrender, and Talstar Xtra, to thoroughly treat your lawn. We’ve also got Bug Blaster II Turf Insect Control Granules from Hi-Yield, which controls ants and other lawn pests. Be sure to treat around the base of your foundation to stop fire ants from intruding into your home, too. Extinguish and Extinguish Plus is very effective particularly for treating around animals and forage areas. Extinguish will not harm good bugs and is safe for use around livestock.
