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 upon which at least a partial coating of a tackifying compound is formed as a result of admixture of the tackifying compound therewith, pumping the suspension into a subterranean formation and depositing the mixture within the formation whereby the tackifying compound retards movement of at least a portion of the particulate within the formation upon flow of fluids from the subterranean formation. The tackifying compound is produced by reaction of a polyacid, polyorganophosphate, polyphosphonate, polysulfate, polycarboxylate or polysilicate, and a metal ion.
