No Watering-In required
People liked that this ant killer did not need watered-in. Here is one of the many comments on watering-in, "This stuff works great! I especially like the fact that no watering is needed for it to work. When you're dealing with dozens of fire ant mounds, you don't want to have to deal with having to water them all. I checked the treated mounds the next day and they were inactive."
Very Effective on Fire Ants
There were a lot of comments on how well this worked on Fire Ants. That is what this product is specifically designed for and apparently it does work very well. Here is one of the many comments about Fire Ants, "This stuff rocks. I live in Houston and purchase it to knock out a few enormous fire ant hills. I followed a previous reviewers recommendation to poke a few holes in the plastic sealer as opposed to removing the entire thing as it helps sprinkle only small amounts down."
Container Is Hard to Open
There were a lot of comments about the container being hard to open. Here is one of the many complaints, "One star off because I do not like the cap and opening! There is a paper seal under the cap, which Ortho wants me to slice and remove in order to expose the product...Using their advice, I end up with a container that is difficult to "aim" at small piles, and I also end up wasting product."

The Ortho 0275510 Fire Ant Killer is an effective killer of fire ants. There is no watering-in required. The only complaint that I could find was that customers complained that the container was hard to open. Other than that, this is an effective killer of fire ants.
