Protecting your operation from fire ants means applying bait with intention. Check out a few tips for application of Extinguish® Professional Fire Ant Bait here:
For small areas, the Ortho® Whirlybird®, Republic EZ Hand spreader and Scott’s® HandyGreen® II can be used to broadcast Extinguish® Professional Fire Ant Bait at the recommended rate of 1 to 1.5 lbs./acre. *To apply the recommended amount of Extinguish® Professional Fire Ant Bait, two passes should be made of the area at a normal walking speed of 2.5 mph (100 ft. covered in 27 seconds).
Spyker® Models 44-22 and 22-24 can be used to apply Extinguish® Professional Fire Ant Bait at the recommended rate of 1 to 1.5 lbs./acre (approximate setting 4.1). A “fire ant control plate” can be easily clipped in over the gate opening and must be used.
Other brands of walk-behind spreaders can be set to deliver 1-1.5 lbs. of bait using a 1/8” drill bit placed in the hopper gate opening. This 1/8” width should be marked on the edge of the hopper gate opening or on the handle gate setting.
