This is the best product by far for fire ants and it also can cure your home if u have a roach problem.
We put it in the yard first and killed all the ants in a day. If you have roaches and you've tried everything you should try this I've recommend this to several friends and we are all roach free now . The powder is for outside so it does stink like rotten cabbage but if your as desperate as I was you won't mind. Sprinkle it thinly like you would boric acid around all base boards under stove, refrigerator, toilet, and all appliances where they hide put it in paper plates under cabinets. Clean and reapply after 1st 7 days then wait another week after 7 more days clean every thing very good and just put a then layer under appliances. Depending on how bad your infested it how many applications you'll need you may need less or more. I promise within a month you won't have roaches any more. Keep out of reach of pets and children. I hope I helped some one battling bugs like I have .
The day before my son's 4th birthday party, I realized the yard was overun with fire ants. I bought one bottle of Orthene Fire Ant Killer and spread it on every mound I could find. The next morning, I came out to check out the yard and it looked like a cemetery. There were dead fire ants everywhere. I swept them up and the party went on, out in the yard, without a single person getting stung. What a wonderful product!!!
Most powerful fire ant killer. It does not matter how large or small the fire ant mound is, only 2-shake application will kill whole colony within 12 hours. Do not need any watering, only shake a little bit power, That is it !! So easy to apply, but really effective. I strong recommend to my friends and coworker. Thanks for this product research and manufacture.
I'm not a bug person this helps me keep them away
It does exactly what it says it's going to do. This product worked amazingly.
This stuff kills roaches. Any time I move in somewhere sprinkle ortho! I live around water and I have NO roaches and No spiders or any other bugs. My son is 6 soon to be seven and when we go to other peoples houses he says "mom theres a BUG!" he doesn't even know what a roach is....lol
I like to have this product in my house all a time because it can keep my house out of any ant for all day in my life.
Have used this for years with outstanding results. We always have bottle handy when mowing the yard...doctor the mounds as we go. Use it even in the pastures
while this product is labled for fire ants it will work on all ants, any crawling bugs when put in its path !!! I have been using and recomending orthene for years. I have 3 acres and live in FL the fire ant capitol 1 large container will last me for 2 years ! Just a small amount on the bed and the next day it is a grave yard ! Mix a small amount with powdered sugar for ants in the house place in a bottle cap in the path of the ants overnite remove it the next day no more ants.It is labled for outdoor use !! There is astrong smell but that goes away quickly.
The product seems to be highly effective, and I don't mind the smell. However, my two most recent purchases (from a local WalMart) were disappointing in that the product was very lumpy and not at all a dust as it is supposed to be. The lumpiness means that more product must be applied to a given mound to obtain sufficient cvoerage.
One tablespoon per gallon, applied with a sprayer to tops and undersides of foliage helps tremendously in controlling scale, both hard and boisduval, on orchid plants.
Scale is one of the most persistent, annoying and disfiguring pests of orchids. Orthene is one of the valuable weapons in my efforts to control this insect.
Use of a buffer to adjust pH to 5.5 or so increases residual effect.
Kills fire ants as promised. Follow directions for a fire ant free yard.
Great product, but very little thought went into the container. Should have a sprinkle option.
Ortho Orthene Fire Ant Killer really does a good job killing the ant mounds in my yard. One application is all it takes. Application is easy and convenient and needs no watering in. I fully recommend this product.
Works like a charm. Great value - nothing is worse than not being able to relax, walk anywhere in your yard without worrying about being stung by fire ants. So painful, it is ridiculous that something so small can inflict such pain. And this product did not hurt any birds, rabbits, squirrels, etc. in the yard. Thank goodness for Ortho.
I live in the land of fire ants, TEXAS. This product solves my problem not only with fire ants, all ants, including carpenter.
This product has a seal when you remove the lid. I poke holes in the seal to spread over ant mounds. This product does the job.
great product, price was fair results were excellent would recommend to all my friends
This product has worked on every ant mound that in which it was applied.
I have a problem with ants getting into my pool motor and other motors around the property. I tried the Orthene on these ants and they were killed quick and did not come back. Thanks Ortho!
Works great! not a general lawn use item, but works in one day and the white powder will help identify where not to step until the next rain or sprinkler.
