How Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait Insecticide Works
Extinguish Plus fire ant bait insecticide contains both hydramethylnon and S-methoprene as the active ingredients. Hydramethylnon is used in most bait granulars and gels as an effective chemical for interrupting an ant's metabolic system. It affects the ant's ability to perform important functions such as feeding while making it lethargic and immobile. S-methoprene is an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the queen ant and prevents the colony from rebounding after treatment.
