Is there any difference in results between using ammonia or Amdro on fire ant mounds?

I've never tried ammonia. Amdro worked wonders for us.

:) Is there any difference in results between using ammonia or Amdro on fire :) ant mounds? :) Chances are you will just disturb the mound with the ammonia and cause them to move or bud into several new mounds to deal with in a couple of weeks where the Amdro should kill out the mound within a couple of weeks. If ammonia does kill any ants you would probably see some immediate results rather than a week or two with Amdro. But again if the ammonia does kill ants I would guess it would need to be rather concentrated, now having you deal with more of a toxin than Amdro. The amount of ammonia solution would need to be a gallon or maybe more for an average mound so if it needed to be a strong mixture to kill them the cost of per mound treatment would be higher than Amdro.

Depends. Are you trying to kill them, or clean their picture windows?

Ammonia will piss off the ants. Same as if somebody dumped a load in YOUR house.
