Fipronil is a broad-spectrum insecticide that belongs to the phenylpyrazole chemical family. Fipronil disrupts the insect central nervous system by blocking GABA-gated chloride channels and glutamate-gated chloride channels. This causes hyperexcitation of contaminated insects’ nerves and muscles. Fipronil kills insects when they eat it or come in contact with it. Fipronil works by disrupting the normal function of the central nervous system in insects.

    Trying to eliminate ants from my domestic property.

    Greg (verified owner)

    I have been using this product for around one year,and so far it seems to be working in a manner of speaking. By that i mean that whenever i do a treatment outside and around my house, the ants go away after a few days, but about a month or so later start coming back again. Why this is happening, i can’t explain. My main trouble is with black house ants/ coastal brown ants and the little stinging green ants. So i am controlling the ant problems to the main extent, but it appears to be an ongoing process. Lastly, my only other comment is, please can the manufacturer supply a second plastic lid/cover with many small holes, so the product can be distributed in a controlled and even manner. It is very hard to dispense the product without this type of lid, and you can waste a fair amount if not being very careful when distributing around the building.

    Wipeout

    Ross Murison (verified owner)

    Due to neighbouring building works a number of years ago, I now have little black ants that bite and are gnawing their way into all my red river gum trees and even my fence posts so I decided on a full on blitz of every spot I knew these ants to be. I used this granular product as well as a liquid fipronil product and the result is outstanding. I tried to show a friend what these ants looked like about a week after application and I couldn’t find a single ant. So that is literally millions of ants gone. No doubt, over a 5 acre property, I may find other locations and I also understand more ants can migrate over time from other properties so unfortunately this may be an ongoing exercise. However I do know that I will be using this product again due to the resounding results. I don’t know if the gum trees can repair themselves internally if I keep the ants away.

    Fipronil Granular Ant Killer does not claim, nor is registered for the control of Fire-Ants.  It only claims control of Funnel and Nuisance Ants.  We would recommend Synergy Pro Ant Bait which is registered for the control of Fire Ants.  The directions of use are available on the Specialist Sales website in the 'SDS & Technical' tab and should be read before use.  A general rate of 20-40gm per 100m2 is recommended.

    Surefire Fipronil Granules are ideal for application on pavers, paths, lawns, gardens and hard surfaces.  Care does need to be taken around gardens, mainly to ensure the granules do not enter your ponds or any watercourses as they are toxic to aquatic life and creatures in the water.  Cover or remove fishponds and aquariums before application.  Pets and other animals need to be removed from the area before treatment.  If your dogs eat granules, then ensure the granules are well dispersed, i.e. swept in between pavers, crack and crevices and distributed into the soil and lawn before they are returned to the area.

    Surefire Fipronil Granular Ant Killer (Fipronil) only lists Funnel Ant and Nuisance Ant as species controlled on its label.  Other liquid Fipronil formulations such as Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide list meat ants as a species controlled, so a trial of the granular product could be undertaken to test effectiveness.  We also suggest looking at Synergy Pro Ant Bait, another granular formulation that has meat ant control listed on its label and is a very popular ant control option.

    In regards to the protection of pets and livestock, before applying Surefire Fipronil Granular Ant Killer remove animals and pets from the areas to be treated.  Cover or remove any open food and water containers.  Caution is recommended when used around pets (especially dogs) and you should ensure the product is well dispersed.  It is also advised not to allow animals to graze treated turf or feed the turf clippings from any treated area to poultry or livestock.

    The Surefire Fipronil Granular Ant Killer does not explicitly list the individual species of ants it controls, only by nuisance ants and funnel ants.  Fipronil is used worldwide to control ants, beetles, cockroaches, fleas, ticks, termites, mole crickets, and other insects, so it is likely it also does Green Ants (Rhytidoponera spp.).  Fipronil kills insects when they eat it or come in contact with it.  Fipronil works by disrupting the normal function of the central nervous system in insects.  I do not believe ants eat each other once affected by this poison.  As Green Ants are not listed on the products label, we cannot guarantee it will kill these pests.  You may like to look at Synergy Pro Ant Bait as it is registered to control Pony Ants (incl. Green Ants) (Rhytidoponera spp.).
