Gourmet Ant Bait
Premium Gel Formulated Bait for Ants
Gourmet Ant Bait Gel has become one of the more popular gel formulated baits used by pest control technicians and licensed pest control operators. Professionals initially used Gourmet baits for sugar feeding or sweet feeding ants but these same professionals now know that protein feeding ants also love to eat this bait.
Gourmet Ant Bait Gel Directions
To use Gourmet Ant Bait Gel for the control of ants, make small pea sized
placements and thin lines in areas where ants are a problem. Long thin
lines allow room for many ants to feed on the bait at a single feeding.
Use one to three lines per bait placement. Place your ant bait where ants
trail, foraging for food, or where ants have been seen especially on a regular
basis. You can place your bait under food cabinets, stoves, sinks,
refrigerators, food storage areas, attics, garages, basements, storage areas,
closets or other areas where you have seen ants or suspect foraging ants.
As outlined above, this bait can be applied to certain areas in small beads or thin lines. For heavy or stubborn infestations or to simply protect your bait from being contaminated by every day cleaning inject the gel formulation inside of Ant Cafe bait stations. The use of the Ant Cafe will also prolong the life of bait that is used outdoors. Bait stations can be placed on window sills (and other such locations) and can also be secured to shrubs or small limbs of trees where ants are suspected of or have been noticed foraging from their colonies.
Gourmet Ant Bait Gel® has 6% (DOT) as the active ingredient. DOT is less repellent then other Boron based toxicants and is more effective at eliminating both the workers and queens in active ant colonies than many other products. Recent studies show that foraging ants take only 1/4 as much food in gel form as compared to feeding on liquids, therefore, the dose of DOT delivered to the colony is about the same as in a 1-2% liquid bait. Gel baits tend to dry out quickly unless placed in an Ant Cafe, so small placements should not be relied upon for control.
Gourmet Ant Bait Gel
Gourmet Ant Bait Gel is available in kits that contain bait or ant cafe bait stations. The small bait kit contains 1 tube Gourmet Ant Bait Gel and 4 Ant Cafe bait stations.
Gourmet ant baits (both gel and liquid formulations) can be
combined for a successful ant baiting program. Gourmet baits are often
used in tandem with Maxforce Ant Bait
Stations, Maxforce Ant Killer Gel and
Fluorguard Ant Bait when severe ant populations are encountered. By
placing a variety of bait types (granulated bait, ant bait stations, liquid
bait) and even different professional brands of ant baits in and around heavily
infested buildings, you get a better picture of what finicky ants prefer for
foods. No matter how great an ant bait is, you can often get frustrated
trying to find exactly what an ant colony wants or needs during any given week.
