Prior to treating golf courses with insecticides, detect specific pest infestations by spraying ExciteR™ diluted with water to one square yard of turf and recording the number and species of insects present ten minutes after the application. To eliminate ants, armyworms, chiggers, crickets, fleas and beetles, Essentria® All Purpose Insect Concentrate can be used alone as a contact spray or tank mixed with ExciteR™. In areas where ants and fire ants are a problem, apply Extinguish® Professional Fire Ant Bait, Extinguish® Plus fire ant bait or ProBait® Formulation for Professionals around fire ant mounds with a spreader or a scoop. For smaller colonies that are not visible for spot treatments, consider broadcast applications. It is essential that applications be made in dry conditions and reapplied after rainfall. With consistent use, mounds will dry up and mound movement will cease.
