What it does

Kills ants that unwittingly stumble upon the biodegradable sand granules. Remaining effective even after rain, the ant sand can also be used at the entrance to an ant nest for barrier protection.


Kills ants before they forge a scented trail to your house.

Where to use

Cracks and crevices in between pavers, lawns, and garden and path edges. Applying around soil and plants will not cause damage if used as directed.

How to use

  1. Select treatment area: Determine areas where ants are most active. These are areas such as cracks and crevices in building foundations, in between pavers, on lawns and garden and path edges.
  2. Application: Dispense directly from pack. Sprinkle evenly over the area to be treated. Do not heap sand granules. Sweep in between pavers, cracks and crevicies and disperse into soil and lawn. Where possible sprinkle directly on and around an nests or trails. Wash hands after use.
  3. Light infestation: use 15 per cent (about one-sixth) of a pack across 10 meters squared
  4. Heavy infestation: use 50 per cent of a pack across 10 meters squared.
  5. Maintenance: Reapply every 2 months for maximum control
