Control of the Texas Leaf-Cutting Ant with Methyl Bromide
Methyl bromide has proven effective and practical in the control of the Texas leaf-cutting ant, a serious pest on reforestation projects in Texas and Louisiana. It is cheaper, easier to apply, and not inflammable or explosive, but is dangerous if inhaled. It will replace carbon disulfide formerly used as a fumigant.
