Maxforce Ant Killer Bait Gel

Kill sugar feeding ants with new Fipronil bait.

Directions for Use How to Order Ant Bait
Return to Ant Bait Article Ant Index

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 Baiting Outdoors
  • Apply gel in spits in cracks and crevices.  For best results, place many spots or dabs of gel where you see ants foraging and entering the structure.
  • Do not apply gel to areas which have been recently sprayed with an insecticide or contaminated with foggers; do not spray insecticides over gel as this will cause the bait to become repellent or contaminated to the point where foraging ants will not accept your bait.  Do not apply gel to areas that are routinely washed, such as counter tops as gel will be removed or diluted and spread onto the surface.  If you have recently sprayed with an insecticide, remove any dead ants and thoroughly clean the area before applying gel.
  • Place Maxforce Ant Killer Bait as follows: Gel can be placed in cracks, crevices, corners and any out-of-the-way place.  This areas can include under and behind kitchen appliances, along baseboards, under sinks, in pantry, around pipes and water heater, window and door frames and in the garage, attic or crawl space.
  • Inspect placements and reapply as needed: The ant bait gel will remain attractive to ants for up to two weeks.  Inspect gel placements and reapply as necessary.  Reapply in same area if bait is gone or in a different location if no ant activity is evident.

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.
When fighting an existing Pharaoh Ant infestation or a continuous Argentine Ant infestation, use Ant Cafe bait stations to keep your bait fresh for longer time periods.

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.)
