Re: RoundUp/Surflan

Glad it's working for you despite the color.

Yup, the orange is ugly for a bit, but it sure helps to know where you've
sprayed - both intentionally and unintentionally.

I just use Amdro, Award or Logic bait for the fire ants, broadcasting it in
spring and fall. We've only had two fire ant mounds this year, and both were
outside the fence, where my neighbor thinks he's helping (not) by sprinkling
the mounds with Orthene. The baits work so much better than mound treatments
that I don't even use the mound treatments anymore.
