Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait


Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait does exactly what its name says, it extinguishes and destroys infestations of fire ants quickly. Extinguish Plus is a very attractive bait to fire ants who gladly scoop up the bait where ever they find it.

With it’s solid formula, Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait can completely eliminate a fire ant colony. Extinguish Plus contains both an IGR and an insecticide which is a stomach poison that works slowly to kill affected ants, putting a halt to ant reproduction and killing the current worker ants.


Why Choose Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait ?

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is a unique method of ant control bait featuring a slow acting insecticide (hydramethylnon) and an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR-Methoprene). This dual action ant killer can successfully destroy the presence of an entire fire ant colony. The IGR prevents rebirth of a new generation in the colony, while the insecticide kills the foraging workers. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait will start to kill ants as soon as they begin feeding on the bait. You will see the colony numbers start to dwindle within a span of a week, after the bait has been brought back to the nest. The nest will be destroyed when the bait reaches the queen who dies from the poison.


Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait works excellent in two forms with its active ingredients. First it stops the queen's ability to reproduce and it also poisons the worker ants. Scattering the bait over the entire yard works better than individual treating the fire ant mound because many fire ant mounds are below ground and are not visible until they have been around quite a while and the population has grown significantly. Make sure the weather is not rainy when you put the bait out


Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait Application Tips For Bed Results

  • -It is recommended to bait in the Spring or in the Fall. However, you can bait whenever the ants are foraging. Fire ants like to search for food in the early mornings or late afternoons.

  • -Inspection is important when baiting for fire ants, look for activity. Placing some pet food or a potato chip around mound will indicate that they are actively foraging at that moment.

  • -Apply on a day that is dry and there is no rain on the forecast for some time.

can this product be applied prior to a soaking rain, within 48 hours?
Larry H on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have read that once Extinguish gets wet it becomes ineffective. I try to apply it when the ants can have 3 days to get at it before it gets wet. They need that time to gather an effective amount.

Fire Ant Bait
Good results, although it it takes some time to take effect. Fast shipping.
March 4, 2016
Attempted to use this product to try and rid my yard of ants. Two weeks after application there appears to be NO change in the ant activity. I still have hundreds of little ant mounds in my yard. This was an expensive product so I expected to get some results, but to my disappointment it did nothing. II would definitely NOT recommend this product.

I tried all the standard treatments but still had numerous ant hills cropping up at our house. Using this bait makes all the difference. There are still a few that pop up from time to time, but a fraction of before.

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait
This was the second container I have bought this year, the only product that is getting the job done. I am applying it to every new hill as they develop and they seem to disappear in a couple days. Unfortunately with five and a half acres there are always new ones appearing but hopefully not as many as last year.
October 21, 2014
So far....keeping my fingers crossed, the results are looking good. I put the product down a week ago and have only seen one new hill. I have a pick your own grape business and last year was a nightmare in the vineyard with the ants. Hopefully this will work!!!!!!!
