Atlas Chemical Corp.
Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait combines (S)-Methoprene, an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR), with attractive bait that foraging fire ant workers take back to the queen. (S)-Methoprene adversely affects the queen's ability to reproduce, so when existing workers die (normally within a three-week period), no new workers are created to replace them. The result? Starvation and elimination of the entire colony.

WITH PRECOR INSECT GROWTH REGULATOR (IGR)
EXTINGUISH PROFESSIONAL FIRE ANT BAIT (EXTINGUISH) contains an insect growth regulator (IGR) with specific activity to fire ants. The IGR is contained in an attractive bait that foraging fire ant workers take back to the mound to feed to the queen. IGR's are different from conventional products which provide a direct kill to fire ants. IGR's work by affecting queen reproduction. The effects of the treatment may not be immediately evident. IGR's are slower in activity than conventional products. Though slower in action, control is complete without the concern of rebounding or movement of the colony to another location. Reduction in colony size can be seen beginning at 3 weeks with colony Extinguish Professtional Fire Ant Bait will eliminate the pests within 8 to 10 weeks. When existing workers die, replacement workers are not produced, resulting in starvation and elimination of the queen and colony.
General application during heat of the day or when rain is expected within 6 hours of application will reduce the effectiveness of this product. Moisture reduces the attractiveness of the bait in wet areas. In areas of heavy infestation, repeat applications may be necessary 10 to 12 weeks following the initial application.
1. Individual Mound Treatments - Treat all visible mounds with 3 to 5 tablespoons of EXTINGUISH per mound. To treat the mounds, sprinkle the adjacent areas of the mound, applying evenly in a manner to encompass the mound to a perimeter of 4 feet. Do not disturb the mound during application. Worker ants will locate the bait quickly and begin taking it back to the mound.
2. Broadcast Applications - Apply EXTINGUISH to areas at the rate of 1 to 1.5 pounds of product per acre (3.5 tablespoons/1000 ft2) using suitable application equipment. Backpack, hand, or motorized mechanical equipment may be used. No withdrawal or grazing restrictions are necessary on treated areas.
EXTINGUISH may be used as a preventative application to reduce the buildup of fire ants into unwanted areas. Two to three broadcast applications per year are recommended to prevent the encroachment and subsequent development of new mounds into an area. Repeat applications may be made as often as fire ants are observed.
3. Hopper Blend - Blend EXTINGUISH with other fire ant bait products such as ProBait Amdro Pro, or other bait products labeled for fire ant control. When blending products, the more restrictive label will apply. Use a 50/50 mix to blend EXTINGUISH and other bait. For broadcast applications, mix the required amount of bait so that the application is made using 0.75 lbs. EXTINGUISH and 0.75 lbs. of other bait for a total of 1.5 lbs. of total bait per acre. For mound treatments, blend a 50/50 mix of EXTINGUISH and other bait and apply at the rate of 3-5 tablespoons per mound.
4. Refillable Bait Stations - EXTINGUISH may be used in refillable bait stations. Place up to 1 oz of EXTINGUISH per refillable bait station. Locate stations along the perimeter of a structure or fence line with 1 station every 15-30 linear feet. Locate stations near potential ant entry points of a structure or near locations where ants are a problem. Examples include: weep holes, foundation vents, stairs, decks, patios, picnic areas, utility areas, and other areas frequented by ants. Inspect stations frequently and replenish bait if soiled or wet. Affix a sticker to bait station indicating the contents.
Use EXTINGUISH indoors in homes, residences (apartments, nursing homes), commercial buildings and warehouses, and any other structures where ants may enter. Also for use in non-food/feed areas of institutions, restaurants, commercial food processing areas, including poultry and livestock operations. Apply bait as a crack, crevice, and void treatment or to areas that are inaccessible such as attics, crawlspaces, and wall voids. Apply 0.25 ~ 0.50 oz per crack, crevice, or void. For use in attics or crawlspaces, use 0.25 oz per 100 square feet in those areas that are inaccessible to children or pets.

I got rid of the fire ants on my property within 6 days For months I’ve been trying hard to get rid of the fire ant infestation that somehow got introduced on my property but so far the battle has been really bad. Two weeks ago, while visiting a friend of mine who lives down the road, I happened to come across the Pestmall website and when I got home that day, I spent hours on the Pestmal blog. I came across this product, the Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait and while I initially thought that 200 bucks is a bit too much of an investment for fire ant control, I finally gave in and I got the pest control product. To my utter amazement, within 6 days of using the product for the first time, I saw the destruction of entire fire ant colonies. It was truly spectacular. Great product. Don’t mind the price. You are getting value for money here.

I was told that the Extinguish Professional Fire Ant Bait was good to use for fire ant problems by my neighbor who personally used it himself. Our neighborhood is all about country, Southern life styles so we're outside a lot of the times. It feels great to be fire-ant free and go out our yard for cook-outs. It's great! My neighbors choose to meet at my house now!
