Maxforce Ant Killer Bait Gel
Kill sugar feeding ants with new Fipronil bait.
Maxforce FC Professional Insect Control Ant Killer Bait Gel is formulated to effectively control ants. This ant bait contains Fipronil, a fast acting ingredient that is still slow enough for foraging worker ants to carry the material safely back to the colony. The bait is fed to the larvae and queens so that the ant colony is killed by Fipronil's domino effect. Maxforce Ant Killer Bait Gel is effective against Argentine Ants, Odorous House Ants, Pharaoh Ants, Cornfield Ants and little black ants. For Carpenter Ants, use Maxforce Gel Carpenter Ant Bait.
The high moisture content of this gel enhances the bait's attractiveness to target ants. The bait's attractiveness is greatest within two weeks of application. This product is a bait product, formulated to take advantage of ant trophallaxis. Through trophallaxis, worker ants eat the bait while foraging, then feed it to the rest of the colony. The larvae digest the solid bait and produce a liquid containing the Fipronil that is fed to the rest of the colony and queens.
General Directions for Use
Baiting Indoors with Maxforce Ant Gel
Visually inspect for ants and place gel in areas where you see ants. Likely
locations for ants and gel placements are areas where ants enter the building structure
and areas with potential water damage, including: wall voids, cracks and crevices in
kitchen, bathroom, under sink, windowsills, screen vents, garage, attic and crawl
spaces. Do not place bait in locations that are routinely washed, as bait will be
removed by washing. Do not treat food preparation surfaces. Do not use this
product in or on electrical equipment where a possibility of shock hazard exists.
Baiting Outdoors with Maxforce Ant Gel
Place gel outdoors into, on or adjacent to structures where you see ants, next to ant trails and suspected areas of ant activity. Likely locations for ants and gel placements are points of entry into structure and areas with potential water damage, including: eaves, soffits, weep holes, where wires and pipes come into the building structure, trees, stumps, roots, wood decks, fences, planter boxes, woodpiles, landscaping and railroad ties. Extreme heat or cold, direct sunlight and water may reduce the residual effectiveness. Ant Cafes can be used outdoors to hold your ant bait. These bait stations can be attached to shrubs or place on window sills or other such ledges where ants are known to forage.
Maxforce gel ant bait is available in 24 gram cartridges (box of four cartridges.)
