Amdro® Biological Insecticide By BASF - Australia Packshot

Amdro® Granular Ant Bait

Granular Ant Bait

Amdro® Granular Ant Bait is a selective insecticide for control of certain ant species

Amdro Granular Ant Bait is effective against specific destructive ant species, namely Singapore ant, Coastal Brown ant, Tropical Fire ant (Ginger ant), Red Imported Fire ant and Green Headed ant.

It is important to be able to recognise these ants, because Amdro has been designed to be attractive to them. Other species have different food preferences and may not be attracted to the bait. For example, Amdro will not control black house ant.

Key benefits

  • Target and eliminate distructive ants
  • Use in a range of settings
  • Group 20A insecticide

How it works

Amdro can be used almost anywhere, and is approved for use on gardens, lawns, parks, golf courses, sports grounds, driveways, paths, patios and other non-crop land.

Amdro should be used when ants are actively foraging for food. Early season treatment will control ant colonies while they are establishing and before they are large enough to be a serious problem.

Amdro should not be applied to wet ground, or if rain is expected, as the granules deteriorate in moist conditions.
