Abstract/Contents:"Bait formulations of hydramethylnon (Amdro) 0.73%B (5 tbsp/mound), (S)-methoprene 0.5% (5 tbsp/mound) and fenoxycarb (Award) 1%B (3 tbsp/mound) were evaluated for control of red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren. All colonies within each plot (size range = 300-500 ft² each with 3-5 colonies/plot) were individually treated on 28 Aug. 1996. Significant control (57.5%) was provided by hydramethylnon within 1 wk and by (S)-methoprene (33.3%) within 3 wk. All 3 products (hydramethylnon, (S)-methoprene, & fenoxycarb) were significantly better than the untreated check by 7 wk. Within the time period of this experiment, the low level of control provided by the latter 2 materials is expected, since they require a longer period for complete kill of the colony. Foraging activity within the plots was significantly reduced by hydramethylnon within 1 wk. All 3 materials produced significantly less foraging than the untreated check by 3 wk. However, none of the treatments completely eliminated foraging. The extended drought and low relative humidity during the summer of 1996 may have contributed to the reduced effectiveness experienced during this test. Foraging activity for ants within a plot was assayed by placing 3 hot dog baited traps near the central area of the plot for ca. 30 min exposure and counting the ants collected. Mound mortality was determined by stomping on the soil near the mound and observing ant activity."
