  • Dimension (pre-emergent herbicide)
  • LockUp (herbicide)

  • Heat-Infused
  • Precise Even Coverage
  • Liquid application accurate within .01% of a gallon

Ascend Fire Ant Bait

Active Ingredient: Abamectin

MSDSSPECMore Info

Ascend Fire Ant Bait

Ascend does more than just kill fire ants—it can actually cause an immediate halt to viable egg production, preventing the colony’s growth. Ascend is formulated in an oil bait that functions as an attractant to Fire and Pharaoh ants. Ascend is a stomach insecticide which acts to reduce ant workers. The bait is also passed by the workers throughout the ant colony and eventually to the queen. Ascend is toxic to ants; however, it is most effective against the ant queen and causes an immediate halt of egg production and disappearance of worker brood. The disappearance of worker ants leads to the decline and eventual elimination of the ant colony. Apply when ants are actively foraging. Ascend is labeled for use in and around homes and commercial buildings.
