Granular Insecticides

Granular Insecticides – Granular insecticides are designed to be spread over large areas to create an insecticide barrier or zone which controls insects living in or crossing into this area.  Most granular insecticides must be wetted in order for them to be activated.  So, these are typically outside only products, and are not labeled for use indoors.  It may take a large amount of granules to achieve effective results.  They are also affected by weather.  Too much rain and the granules lose their effectiveness quicker.  No rain and they are not activated.  You might have to water them for them to begin working.  Some granular insecticides are effective for the control of ants, such as the Red Imported Fire Ant when spread over large areas such as lawns.  Please read and follow all pesticide labeling.
