    Default Amdro

    I've been chasing the same 3 piles of ants, a form of fire ants, around the yard at Camp Mopto for years.

    In FL when ants would appear, I'd sprinkle some Amdro Fire Ant Bait or Ant Block and within a week or so, no more ants. The theory is ants think Amdro is food, so they take it back to the queen, she dines & dies, so the colony dies.

    I have yet to find Amdro Ant Bait or an equivalent here. All I can find is a liquid poison that kills the ants, but not the ones in the colony.

    Anyone know where Amdro is available, or of a local equivalent?

    Does it kill the entire colony, or just makes the ants undergroiund move around?

    Yeah, I could import Amdro, but was hoping if a similar product was available here.

    I've tried ant killers, powder & liquids, and no joy. They just pop up somewhere else.

    Amdro is the best. I used that in Florida, too, for fire ants. Works like a charm.

    This stuff wiped out cockroaches in my veehickle and kitchen.



    One of the cats got at it and was vomiting but that was all.

    Now when a cockroach or ants appear I put a little bit where the cats can't get at it and the pests disappear like Paulie.



    I buy mine at Agroveterinaria La Iguana at km 9 Duarte highway northbound just before the Transporte Espinal terminal and just after the Police station. It's about a short football field on the right after the big km 9 bus station with the pedestrian bridge in front of it.

    A good agroveterinaria should carry it. I think single packets cost about 10 pesos.

    We have no real issues with ants in the house. If we see some, we use some Hot Shot liquid ant bait in the little clear housing where the ants appear, and they disappear. Maybe they go somewhere else. Same with cockroaches.

    But the yard ants are a different story. They seem to be a variety of fire ants that build large mounds almost overnight. The only product that eliminated whole colonies in FL was Amdro.
