Abstract/Contents:Suppression of the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren, in ornamental turf can be achieved using a periodic application of a single product or by using a sequence of different insecticide products over time to reach a given management objective. This trial was conducted to compare the results of a broadcast application of two bait-formulated products, Logic(tm) (fenoxycarb) and Amdro(tm) (hydramethylnon). In addition, results from a surface spray of Triumph 4E, a contact insecticide, applied at the suggested rate and a sequential application program of Logic followed 4 to 7 days later by a surface application of Triumph applied at half rate were also evaluated. Few statistical differences were documented between treatment regimes. However, maximum levels of suppression were achieved at different post-treatment intervals. Maximum suppression in Triumph-treated plots occurred 2 weeks following application. Thereafter, ant activity increased or resumed. The broadcast application of Amdro provided surprisingly quick results, producing a maximum level of suppression 2 weeks following treatment. Thereafter, active mound numbers increased. Logic applications provided fire ant suppression more slowly, with maximum supression occurring 3 to 7 months following application. The additional application of 0.5 lb AI Triumph following the Logic treatment significantly improved the rate of suppression two weeks following treatment as compared with a single Logic application.
