Scientific name Formicidae

Ants live in underground colonies or inside dead or decaying wood, preferring warm, dry, sandy soil areas that receive plenty of sun. Their underground digging causes soil to lose moisture more rapidly and may damage root structures and weaken turf in infested areas.

Turf Symptoms

  • Appearance of mounds on turf in warm, sunny locations.

Use Tips:

  • Mow lawn before application.
  • Thoroughly wet turf with application.
  • Do not water for 2 days after application.
  • Repeat at 2-3 week intervals if necessary.
