Hasta La Vista Leaf-Cutter Ants

Now is the time for Hi-Yield 38-Plus.
Why you ask? Well, this is the time of year those pesky leaf-cutter ants start doing what they do best – cut leaves. You may not see them because they are working their magic – note: their magic, not yours – at night when you’re fast asleep. You don’t realize they are chomping on your various plants until you start noticing the problem with the plant.
Why now? Well, it is monsoon season and they are getting ready for what’s ahead, stripping the leaves off so they can take them back to their nest so they can feed off the fungus later.
They particularly like the Texas Rangers, Cassias, Salvia, Palo Verdes and peppers. Keep an eye out for those.
What the Hi-Yield 38-Plus is is a mound drench. Don’t always look for the ant hill (mound) to be nearby either. It could be a distance. You’ll have to play detective and follow the leaf trail.
Follow the directions – as always – and the Hi-Yield will work its magic so the ants can’t work theirs. Come on in and ask us for it. And if you have any other questions let us know. That’s what we are here for – you.
