Siesta® Insecticide Fire Ant Bait

Keys to Success

Siesta Insecticide Fire Ant Bait is best applied as a broadcast treatment where foraging ants and mounds that remain hidden or unnoticed receive coverage. Broadcast treatments can be applied to the area using a hand spreader, backpack or push-type spreader. For larger acreage, spreaders can be attached to an ATV, truck, or tractor to allow for even coverage. Calibrate spreader prior to use to apply a rate of 1.0–1.5 lb./A. 

  • Best applied at first sign of fire ant activity
  • Best applied in temperatures above 60°F, when ants are actively foraging
  • Best applied in early morning (no dew) or late in the afternoon
  • DO NOT water in granules after application
  • DO NOT apply when the ground is saturated with water or when heavy rains are expected within 12 hours of treatment
  • If treated areas need to be irrigated, then wait at least 12 hours following treatment

Always read and follow label directions.
