I spray my lawn using BIFEN IT, is there a stronger product since I am still not able to get rid of ant mounds.

Thanks for the help.

Bifenthrin is adequate for mosquitoes and roaches, but not terribly effective on anthills. It kills the ants it contacts, but those are only workers. To eliminate the entire colony, the breeding cycle needs to be interrupted.

To affect the queen and breeders, a bait product that the workers can carry back into the hill is recommended. Many baits are commercially available, but you will need to read the labels closely. Professionals also have growth regulators that can break up the maturation process as well.
