Indoxacarb. Less than 1 percent.

What's the active ingredient in Spectracide bait? I haven't tried that. I
prefer IGRs since they're less of a hazard to other critters.

The main advantage that I can see to baits is that you don't normally see a
mound until it has upwards of 50,000 ants. That's a lot of the biting
beasts. If you bait, you can get the small colonies before you even know
they're there.

Agreed. I'm using Spectracide bait this time around. Seems to keep them
under control.

Glad it's working for you despite the color.

Yup, the orange is ugly for a bit, but it sure helps to know where
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
the mounds with Orthene. The baits work so much better than mound
that I don't even use the mound treatments anymore.
