Abstract:Results of studies to develop toxic baits for control of the imported fire ant (IFA), Solenopsis saevissima richteri Forel, have been reported (Bartlett and Lofgren 1961; Lofgren et al. 1961, 1963, 1964; Stringer et al. 1964). It was found that a bait composed of once-refined soybean oil (the food material), mirex (the toxicant), and corncob grits (the carrier) was effective in reducing or eliminating infestations
