ANTIXX Fire Ant Bait
- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
ANTIXX Fire Ant Bait contains organic spinosad, a naturally occurring soil organism. Spinosad is a metabolite of the soil dwelling bacteria Saccharopolyspora Spinosa and is highly active on insects. Fire ants are an aggressive species that build large sand mounds in residential and commercial landscapes. ANTIXX Fire Ant Bait is an efficacious, research driven, and highly palatable ant bait that is deadly to foraging red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) and harvester ants and is readily taken back into the nest as food for the colony. The active ingredient in the bait is distributed throughout the colony, killing the ants, including the queen. Fire ants and harvester ants that consume the bait will appear sick and lethargic within 12 to 24 hours. Dead ants will frequently be seen near treated mounds 24 to 36 hours after application. The entire colony, including the queen, will usually be controlled within 3 to 14 days after treatment, depending upon environmental conditions. Control of extremely large colonies may take longer or may require reapplication. If reapplication is required, use specified mound or broadcast application rates at intervals of no less than 14 days until control is achieved. Control may be slower with broadcast applications than with individual mound treatments. With ANTIXX Fire Ant Bait, it only takes a few days to eliminate an entire ant colony. It contains a highly active ingredient that targets the ants and lasts for up to 60 days. It can be used most anywhere fire ants are found and also works to control harvester ants in residential, commercial and recreational settings.
In order to maintain the freshness and attractiveness of the bait keep the container tightly sealed. Using the product within the season of purchase is recommended.

Mound Application - Evenly distribute the bait over the mound and extend out to about two feet surrounding the mound. Do not disturb the mound before, during, or after treatment. Avoid mowing or tilling before and after application so the ants do not relocate from the mound.
- Mounds less than 15" in diameter use 4 tablespoons
- Mounds greater than 15" in diameter use 4 to 6 tablespoons

Broadcast Application - Distribute as evenly as possible over the infested area with a calibrated rotary-type hand-held, PTO, electric or ground driven spreader. Broadcast applications will control established mounds and new colonies that are just becoming established. Applications every two months during the warm part of the year when the ants are active will help keep invading queens from establishing new colonies.
