RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – BASF has lunched Siesta Insecticide Fire Ant Bait. With the proprietary active ingredient metaflumizone, the bait delivers control of native and imported fire ants.

“Siesta Insecticide Fire Ant Bait is the only sodium blocker insecticide that doesn’t require metabolism for bioactivation,” said Kathie Kalmowitz, market development specialist, BASF. “It works by affecting the insect’s feeding and mobility, and ultimately results in death. The application flexibility and effectiveness of this product provide excellent reduction in ants and their mounds for several weeks.”

Metaflumizone is formulated on corn grit along with soybean oil, a proven attractant bait for native and imported fire ants. For optimal results, the product should be applied as a broadcast treatment so foraging ants and hidden or unnoticed mounds receive coverage.

Siesta Insecticide Fire Ant Bait is labeled for use on golf courses, residential turfgrass and ornamental landscapes, production field and container nurseries, commercial and industrial areas and recreational areas. For a full listing of use sites, consult the product label.
