Hardin County can treat Crazy Ants with Termidor

One more Texas county can use the pesticide, Termidor, to help get rid of crazy ants.

The Environmental Protection Agency has approved Termidor to be used in Hardin County since its original allowances issued at the beginning of the month.

Counties that are currently cleared for the use of Termidor are also in Southeast Texas: Brazoria, Galveston, Harris, Jefferson, Liberty, Montgomery and Wharton counties. More counties will be added to the list if Texas A&M entomologists identify the ants in those counties.

The EPA has granted Termidor use on man-made structures only.

To see an updated list of Section 18 exemptions, visit the Pesticides Page on our Web site.
