Abstract/Contents:"Formulations of silica dioxide (from diatomaceous earth), pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide were evaluated as treatments to control the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in 3 controlled field trials. Materials evaluated were applied either as individual ant mound drenches, dust applications or broadcast-applied using a hose-end applicator. The mound drench applications eliminated ants in treated mounds quickly and the effectiveness was similar to conventional or "standard" insecticide treatments containing acephate, chlorpyrifos or diazinon. Additional treatments in one trial included a pine oil formulation, rotenone, nicotine and diatomaceous earth. All trials were conducted using an experimental design entitled the "strip plot" or "railroad track" method developed to evaluate individual fire ant mound and contact insecticide treatments. This method allows for documentation of the effect of treatments applied to individually treated, marked ant mounds and also the development "new" (unmarked) colonies, often called "satellite" mounds, appearing in treated plots following treatment."
