SAS PRO is Made in Australia. 

Our high grade quartz silica is sourced from Australian suppliers.  It is washed, graded and dried before shipping to the Sundew manufacturing plant in Melbourne. This painstaking process ensures the optimum particle size for consistent application of the trusted active ingredient, fipronil.  Our buckets, lids and shaker packs are supplied by local injection moulding manufacturers in Melbourne.  The labels on the buckets are printed by local family businesses using Australian raw materials.  SAS PRO is then blended using a proprietary 3 stage process.  The final premium product is then filled and assembled in Melbourne by a family owned 100% Australian business before being dispatched nationally.

SAS PRO and the tramp ants Red Imported Fire Ants and Yellow Crazy Ants

Sundew Solutions is at the forefront in researching and developing solutions for the treatment of tramp ant species in Australia.  SAS PRO has been used with great success in targeted treatments of tramp ant species such as Argentine Ants, Red Imported Fire Ants and Yellow Crazy Ants in Australia.

Red Imported Fire Ants – The red imported fire ant is native to South America but it has spread to Australia, New Zealand, several Asian and Caribbean countries and the United States of America. Fire ants are listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature as one of the world’s most invasive species. Pictured Left – Red Imported Fire Ants at a site in Cornubia, South East Queensland circa 2020 in a homeowners lawn treated with SAS PRO Granular Ant Killer, which when ants are exposed, is transferred back to the nest where it kills the Queen and destroys the colony.

Yellow Crazy Ants – The yellow crazy ant is a species of ant, originally from southeast Asia, that has been accidentally introduced to numerous places in the world’s tropics. It is colloquially called “crazy” because of its erratic movements when disturbed. Its long legs and antennae make it one of the largest invasive ant species in the world. 

After extensive field trials and real world experience Sundew recommends the use of SAS PRO on broken surfaces such as lawns, garden beds, between pavers, compost, ant trails, nests, etc.  As part of an Integrated Pest Management strategy it is recommended that products should not be used as stand along treatments.  Sundew recommends that two other products should be used in combination with SAS PRO to enhance the overall effectiveness of treating nuisance ants:

 

  1. Sundew ANTagonist PRO Polymer Enhanced Bifenthrin applied to hard surfaces such as concrete, walls, driveways, posts, sleepers, ant trails, nests, etc.  Read more about Sundew ANTagonistPRO Residual Polymer Enhanced Bifenthrin here>
  2. Sundew AttractANT PRO Ant Bait Gel strategically applied in targeted areas adjacent to ant trails, nests or where they are suspected of feeding or visiting.  Read more about Sundew AttractANT PRO Ant Bait Gel here>
  3. Sundew EnsnarePRO suspension concentrate 50 g/L indoxacarb non-repellent technology for indoor (and outdoor) situations.  Read more about Sundew EnsnarePRO Indoxacarb technology here>
