Amdro Fire Ant Bait was patented (patent now expired) with delayed toxicity, so soldier ants had time to carry the bait into the mound and feed to the queen. Once a queen dies, the fire ant mound can no longer sustain itself.
Amdro Fire Ant Bait started to enter the marketplace primarily as an agricultural product. Farmers loved it for its ability to eliminate fire ants from large pastures and fields in one application.
At the time, fire ants usually were treated after they were found one mound at a time - enter Amdro Yard Treatment. Consumers now could treat their entire yard all at once to prevent outbreaks.
If Amdro products could eliminate fire ants, then they certainly could protect your home from common ants. Enter Amdro Ant Block products as a home perimeter ant bait. Within a very short time it was listed nationally and became the number one selling Amdro product.
The most annoying and disease-laden insect met its match when the makers of Amdro products launched a two-step Amdro Quick Kill Mosquito line. When used together, Amdro Quick Kill mosquito delivers a 1-2 punch to kill adult mosquitoes and prevent the growth of new ones.
