Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait
This liquid ant bait contains Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate and is packaged in an over-sized bottle containing a pint of liquid ant control product. The bottle is over-sized to allow for convenient mixing.
The 1% solution will give a quick kill for roaches and certain large species of ants. However, this formulation might be too strong for many of the smaller ant species. For these smaller ants it is best to dilute the bait to a weaker solution to avoid bait rejection. If your ant bait is too strong, the worker ants that carry food back to the colony are killed too fast, which results in the remainder of the colony not receiving bait. Once diluted, the bait will work slower but more effectively. Your bait must work its way through from foraging workers to the colony nursery. From there it is transferred back to other workers who, in turn, feed other workers. This chain of food eventually makes its way to the queen and/ or the workers that tend to the queen. It is at this point that you kill the entire colony.
To use Gourmet liquid ant bait, place the liquid in Ant Cafe bait stations
or AntPro Baiting System for best results. Liquid bait can be used "as is" for larger
ants (carpenter ants, fireants) or diluted with distilled water for smaller ants
Pharaoh.) Fill each ant bait station with your bait and
place the filled bait stations in areas of ant activity. Ant Cafes can be
purchased on bulk bags
of stations or in kits that contain Ant
Cafes in combination with the gel version of Gourmet bait.
