used to help monitor and reduce indoor White Footed Ant

Advance Dual Choice should not be used in the control of Crazy Ants or
other such species that do not feed on baited
Argentine Ants do not always accept
this bait, especially on the West Coast of the United States. Another
problem arises when people who do not want to use any other pest control
product (such as dusts, sprays, granules) and insist on using baits in an area that is highly
infested with Argentine Ants. Even if the bait is accepted by the
foraging workers, only a small reduction in ants is often noted.
This is usually due to too many ants, not enough bait. The problem
can be solved by continued baiting program indoors and treating
for ants on exterior surfaces of the building with a residual product.
To help identify your ant, go to the Ant Index.
Ants are attracted to
the bait in Advance Dual Choice Ant Bait Stations. The bait food is
carried back to the nest to kill the queen and destroy the entire colony.
To use, simply place bait stations by ant trails or close to areas where ants are present,
even on food preparation surfaces of next to food. Do not place baits on food
preparation surfaces when food is being handled or no utensils that are used for food
preparation. Dual Choice can also be placed adjacent to walls, electrical lines,
potted plants, waste receptacles, sensitive electronic equipment, inside drop ceilings and
wall voids or anywhere ant problems occur.
Dual Choice Ant Bait stations are designed to be visually inspected, allowing monitoring.
If you see that the ant bait in certain stations are not being eaten, move them to
an area of higher ant activity or where you know you will obtain better bait acceptance.
When the Dual Choice bait stations are empty, you will be able to see and replace
them; if any stations are visibly full of gorging ants, do not disturb until empty.
Advance Dual Choice Kills Ants
Use 3 to 4 ant bait stations in each average size room where ants are noticed or are
suspected. For heavy ant infestations, use 6 to 8 stations for each room.
Although each Dual Choice bait station is designed to be child resistant, place baits
where children (and pets) are least likely to move or play with your ant bait. Any
small, plastic object is a possible choking hazard for small children. Also, if
children move your stations, your ant control program will not be as effective.
To prevent ants from entering your home and to stop re-infestations, spray the exterior of
the structure with products containing Cypermethrin
(Demon, Cynoff, Cypermethrin 4 Ounce) or use Talstar
Concentrate. All of these products can be used indoors and out for a variety of
Dual Choice ant bait is labeled for commercial, industrial and residential use.
This includes processing plants, eating establishments, food
marketing-storage-distribution, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, office buildings,
apartments, laundries, buses, aircraft, boats, museums and zoos.
Advance Dual Choice Bait Stations can be used in a variety of locations:
Households, transportation facilities, food and feed processing plants, hospitals and
related institutions and facilities.
Do not use residual sprays with or near Dual Choice Bait Stations (or any other
bait) as this will tend to contaminate the ant bait and kill the worker ants before they
can deliver the killing agent (Abamectin) to the rest of the ant colony and to the queen
ant. For complete ant control, use ant bait indoors while using a
professional ant spray (such as Cynoff,
4 Oz., products containing Cypermethrin)
on the outside surface of any ant infested structure. The exterior bug spray will
help prevent re-infestations or returning ants from invading your home or business.
