TopChoice is a granular insecticide made with the active ingredient fipronil for the control of fire ants. A single application will keep turf free of fire ants for up to one year. Additionally, when treating for fire ants, the product's ultra-low doses conveniently control several other insects including mole crickets, fleas, ticks and nuisance ants.
- TopChoice can be applied any time throughout the year
- Fipronil acts at the GABA receptors of insects, "switching off" nerve impulses and causing severe disruption of the insect's nervous system
- After its initial release into the soil profile, TopChoice binds tightly to the soil creating a lasting barrier
- TopChoice kills foraging workers, but not before they carry the insecticide back to the colony and spread it to other ants
