I used a granular treatment and watered it in. Act fast, because they do.

What kind of granular treatment? Can you be specific?

Thanks.

It has been awhile. I think it was Spectricide brand. I picked it up I think at Lowes. If you have a Lowes near you go look and read the label.

Good Luck,

I use triazicide around my hives for ants, I also use it in my garden but not on flowing stuff bees work like melons, cucumbers, okra, eggplants, squash, ect. I also spray my friut trees after they are finished blooming
