A subterranean formation is treated with a particulate laden fluid whereby particulate flowback is reduced or prevented. The method includes the steps of providing a fluid suspension including a mixture of a particulate and a tackifying compound, pumping the suspension into a subterranean formation and depositing the mixture within the formation. The tackifying compound coats at least a portion of the particulate and thus retards movement of at least a portion of the particulate within the formation upon flow of fluids from the subterranean formation.
