Ascend Fire Ant Bait is a granular ant bait that is highly effective in controlling fire ants and other ant species. The product contains Abamectin, a powerful insecticide that is extremely toxic to ants. The highly attractive bait targets worker ants as they forage for food. Ant colonies rely on worker ants for food and as worker ants harvest the bait, the insecticide is spread to the colonies, killing off its inhabitants.

Ascend Fire Ant Bait - 2 lb.

Ascend Fire Ant Bait is specially formulated to control fire ants, pharaoh ants and related species. With low active ingredient concentration, the bait gives worker ants sufficient time to transfer the bait to their colonies. The bait is then consumed by the inhabitants of the colony and eventually the queen ant. When the queen dies, the colony's ability to reproduce is impaired and ant numbers dwindle as the bait works on each ant.

Why Should You Use Ascend Fire Ant Bait ?

Ascend Fire Ant Bait is proven to eliminate entire ant colonies when used as directed.

We had ant mounds all over the yard. So my husband bought Ascend Fire Ant Bait and went to work. He followed the broadcast application method. Broadcast application eliminates mounds rapidly. There has been research on Ascend Fire Ant Bait to see whether or not it does what it says it does. The research showed that Ascend Fire Ant Bait highly effective to fire ants and other ant species.

Here is a very attractive bait that is best used to control fire ants. It must be extremely toxic to ants because after using Ascend, I don't have a problem with the ants now.

Ascend Fire Ant Bait Is a very reliable product. I have been using this for almost three months now. I have noticed that fire ants are now disappearing. I am glad to have used this product. If you have problems with fire ants then don't hesitate to buy this product now.

When looking for a good insecticide, I always consider the price, I have made a few mistakes in the past, purchasing really cheap ones, then finding out that either they are not very effective or they are only effective for a very short time. Then I opted for the really expensive ones which were also a disappointed, however the Ascend Fire Ant Bait has been working perfectly fine for over 4 months now and I haven’t suffered the same problems as before, I am very happy with the purchase and I will definitely be recommending it to all my friends. Excellent affordable product.

Good fire ant killer Product..

5 of 5 Stars! (5/5)    Review by   Farrah G.  (Posted on )

I do the pest control for my local neighborhood and trying to eliminate ants is a big challenge. Ascend Fire Ant Bait is proving to be quite effective at eliminating pharaoh ants, red ants and fire ants. The granules are very easy to apply with hand spreader however this is also one of its weaknesses. I had to locate the ant void and apply directly for the best results and also depending on where the void is, the quantity I used varied for the best effectiveness. Most of the ant voids disappeared on the lawns with just the recommended application but on turfs and non crop areas, multiple applications were required and also a higher quantity. Also consistent management of the progress has to be done, but regardless of all this, I think it is worth trying out, in my opinion the result will depend on where you are using it.

Good Prodcut

The ants are REALLY attracted to this bait! Ascend Fire Ant Bait is very effective in controlling the growth of these ant colonies. You have to try and use it now and you’ll see how effective it is.

Ascend is great. It was a great help when I was trying to get rid of fire ants in my yard. The price is fair enough. It's really not like any other. You can really see the difference in quality compared to other baits.

Applied this in the fall because I researched that fire ants will do their last food gathering then before the winter. I was completely shocked to find that the next season, they just couldn't survive the winter after eating the baits! Ascend Fire Ant Bait really works!!

The product was great in the prevention of Fire Ant production just as the description said. I think that the job could’ve been much easier if I had purchased the Handel Spreader that Pest Mall recommends. But, other than that, this product is great and effective!

Fire ants have been my problem for quite some time now. But when I found out about Ascend Fire Ant Bait, it was highly effective in controlling these fire ants. No doubt with this product. Slowly, but surely, fire ants were disappearing. Nice product.

I have had a problem with fire ants for like 3 years now and the its always the same, I buy an insecticide and it works for sometime,before they are back again! It is a very expensive practice but I have been using Ascend Fire Ant Bait for 3 months now and the ants seem to take longer to reappear, and actually they have reduced in the quantity, I hope they will be eliminated permanently so I can begin taking preventative measures, good progress so so, I hope this product continues to work!

Excellent buy

5 of 5 Stars! (5/5)    Review by   Jorge Z.  (Posted on )

When I bought this product, for me the whole concept of insecticides was new for me, so from some of the reviews I have read, I feel kind of lucky that I started with Ascend Fire Ant Bait because I did not have to worry about finding the right insecticide, the ants are slowly disappearing and I am planning to continue using it until they are all gone, plus very affordable price!!

Do You Have a Question about this Product? Ask Our Experts!

Sort By :
Q. Will Ascend Fire Ant Bait get rid of (kill) Crazy or Rasberry ants?
Since it has the same active ingredient Abamectin B1 - 0.011% and same percent as Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait and that one is listed as killing the Crazy ant.
A.   The product label does not list Crazy ants as a target pest and so it is not a product that we can recommend. Although the active ingredient may be the same, the inert ingredients can be very different which may change the product's effectiveness against a certain pest.
