Dual action sterilizes the queen & kills worker ants that contact it. Ascend Fire Ant Bait uses a naturally occurring soil fungus (Abamectin) to completely eliminate fire ant colonies. The bait is attractive to fire ant workers who carry it back to the mound and pass it on to the queen. Destroys the mound and prevents queen egg production. Not for use in crop areas. 2 lb. Ascend treats 36 mounds.
• Very attractive to red imported fire ants
