    Entomologist Steven Valles, who works in CMAVE's Imported Fire Ant and Household Insects Research Unit, developed novel antibodies that bind to a protein in the fire ant's venom. Working with APHIS laboratory director Anne-Marie Callcott and CMAVE entomologist Charles Strong, Valles used these antibodies to develop a portable, easy-to-use test. Two toxic baits (3% boric acid or borax in 20% sucrose–RO water with 1% MSG) were separately placed in test ant colonies. Each test ant colony placed workers and acclimatization process for ants was identical to that for the feeding preference tests. After starvation for 1 d, the dead ants were removed with new workers before the tests.

    Test procedures used to evaluate all candidate toxicants were as follows: The Federal Imported Fire Ant (IFA) Quarantine ( 7CFR S) approves in conjunction with a fire ant bait (hydramethylnon or fenoxycarb), or to treat grass sod. Diazinon may be used in certain states under section 24(c).   In our study, the ingestion of CHX (in and 1% concentrations) by A. sexdens resulted in an increase in the workers’ mortality rate, corroborating that reported by Sousa et al. ().Besides, Sousa et al. () observed a change in the foraging and fungus cultivation behavior when the colony was offered citric pulp pellets containing CHX, as well as .

    ProBait Ant Bait is a potent solution formulated to rid you of your tough ant infestation problems. This insecticide is highly effective against native and imported fire ants, not to mention other tough ant species such as Argentine ants, bigheaded ants, and harvester ants. for Imported Fire Ant Management Wizzie Brown Extension Program Specialist Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Natural and biological control (see Potential Biological Control Agents for the Red Imported Fire Ant). A number of organisms kill fire ant queens and workers. These include dragonflies, other ants, and some types of birds, lizards.

The LD 50 standard refers to the lethal dose needed to kill 50 percent of the test animal population. For example, to exceed the oral LD 50 standard. With the advent of slower-acting insecticides developed as baits for red imported fire ant control in the early s (Klotz et al., ), bait development underwent a major revolution.

They reported that in a 21 day laboratory trial of baits against the Argentine ant (Linepithema humile), an indoxacarb ant gel was unable to produce colony mortalities over 60%.

Among the possible reasons that they considered for these results, they mentioned a lack of palatability of the bait since they rarely observed the ants feeding on it.

Recent advance in the testing. IFA bait toxicants were completed in and the results reported here. One of the most pressing problems facing the Federal imported fire ant quarantine program is the lack of an acceptable procedure Laboratory Tests A preliminary laboratory evaluation was initiated June in Rahway.

Following the report of high activity of the avermectins against arthropods (Putler et a!. ), samples were given to the USDA team in Gainesville, FL, searching for novel bait toxicants to be used for red imported fire ant (RIFA), Solenopsis inuicta Buren, control.

The candidate insecticides tested included a numberknown to have activity against ants andothers ofunknownpotential. In the toxicity tests, the procedure did not differentiate amongcontact, ingestion or vapor toxicity and results thus indicate maximumtoxicity.
