How Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait Works
PT brand Advance 375A select granular ant bait uses special proteins and carbohydrates combined with a unique corn grit matrix that quickly entices these "select" ants to readily take the bait back to the colony. Once the bait is consumed, the reliable active ingredient, Abamectin B1, quickly reduces populations to acceptable levels.
Abamectin B1 is a GABA inhibitor that interferes with the normal functioning of an insect's nervous system and begins affecting ant populations within 24 hours. This type of insecticide allows the ants time to take the bait back to the nest where it is distributed throughout the colony. Reproduction of the colony halts once the queens have been eliminated and the workers, who carried the bait, perish.
Most common household ants
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ADVANCE 375A: Ants, including many common varieties of household ants such as Acrobat, Argentine, Bigheaded, Carpenter, Crazy, Field, Fire, Harvester, Little Black, Pavement, Pharaoh, Odorous House and Thief Ants.
Advance 375A can be used for most common household ants that are seeking protein. Use Advance 375A in conjunction with a sweet bait such as Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel. The two baits can be used side-by-side in convenient and clear bait plate stations. (All three items may be purchased together in our Complete Ant Kit.)
Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait can be used outdoors as a broadcast application around and close to the perimeter of the structure (8oz. per 1/2 acre), or on the interior inside wall voids. Do not use in areas that have been treated with insecticides or sprays. This will cause the bait to be unattractive to the ants. Always read the label.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Abamectin 0.011%
Advance can be used indoors and outdoors to control the ant population. This bait formulation provides for the ant's dietary needs while using the delayed-action insecticide Abamectin. Apply at a rate of 1 lb. per acre for broadcast applications. Indoors, use up to 1.5 oz. of product in heavily traveled sites. Applications may be repeated as necessary. Do not use in food/feed handling areas of food/feed handling establishments. See below for more details.
*Always read the product label completely before use.
Advance 375A can also be used in stations such as bait plate stations to protect from rain or dust and for easy placement and clean-up. Bait plate stations also protect bait from pets or children.
Yield will vary greatly with user and application needs. An 8 oz. container covers ½ acre for broadcast applications, treats around approximately 4 mounds, or treats 5-15 sites indoors. A 2 lb. container covers 2 acres for broadcast application, treats around approximately 16 mounds, or treats 20-60 site indoors.
Standard Application rates for Advance 375A:
*0.4 oz./1,000 sq. ft. – Broadcast application (1 lb. per acre)
*0.3-1.0 oz. per visible ant trail
*1.5-2.1 oz. per ant mound
*Up to 1.5 oz. per indoor crack, crevice, or void
Advance 375A is for use in the following areas:
Homes, Residential Areas, Commercial and Other Structures, Non Food/Feed Areas of Commercial Buildings, Warehouses, Hotels, Food Storage Areas, Inedible Product Areas of Meat Packing Plants, Motels, Schools, Supermarkets, Non-Occupied Patient Areas of Hospitals and Nursing Homes, Golf Courses, Parks, Lawns, and Turf.
Locate ant activity. Follow ants back to voids. Apply product to cracks and crevices or voids where ants are active. In heavily traveled sites use up to 1.5 ounces of product. Use a large Centrobulb duster puffer or other appropriate application device to place the product into crevices or voids. Repeat application as necessary.
If a residual spray is being use, keep sprays low and baits up high. Do not spray liquid or aerosol insecticides on top of bait applications.
BROADCAST APPLICATION: Use this product at a rate of 8 oz. per 1/2 acre. This is equivalent to approximately 1.8 ounces per 5000 sq. ft., or 0.4 ounces per 1,000 sq. ft. (One tablespoon equals approximately 0.3 oz. of bait.) Apply the product as uniformly as possible. Repeat application as necessary.
AROUND STRUCTURES: Lightly sprinkle the product evenly in a band approximately 1-2 feet wide around the foundation of the building. Treat visible trails with approximately 0.3 to 1 ounce of product depending on the number of ants in the trail. Repeat application as necessary.
INDIVIDUAL COLONY OR MOUND TREATMENT: Use 1.5 to 2.1 ounces of product per mound. Apply the product at the edge of the mound. Repeat application as necessary.

Buy this. You won't regret it.
By Robert on 06/01/2010
Got my shipment of this today and went right to work with it. I have pavement ants along the front sidewalk and around the edges of the driveway. I was a professional pest control tech with a major company for a couple years and have experience and success with this bait. I sprinkled some of this around and no bull- it no sooner landed and the ants around that area were picking it up and taking it to the nest. I went back a couple hours later and it looked like I did nothing, they took every last grain of this stuff. So I'll give it a couple days and check back for activity. I know this stuff works from using it before. If you choose this don't expect to see dead ants everywhere. They'll eat this and die in the nest so just look for a major decrease of activity to know that it works!

I have been having an issue with large black carpenter & argentine ants around the exterior of our log-sided home. On the deck rails and siding around the backside of the home they were in large numbers. I bought Advance 375A Select granular ant bait and gave a light sprinkle outside the area I will perform a barrier treatment with Demon WP. I have also placed several mini-trails on the deck railing where I have seen a lot of activity. Less than a week later I can't even find any of them. Excellent product.

Gone, simply gone
By Jon in Albuquerque, NM on 05/17/2010
I've had a persistent problem with what I call tiny sugar ants for years getting into the house. I've tried Amdro, Maxforce, Cynoff, and Talstar ... and the only thing that really worked was Advance 375A. As soon as I see activity in the yard I sprinkle a small amount at the mound and within days there is no activity. This is my third season using Advance and so far I still have control.

I'm no expert, but this stuff is great!
By Dan in Saint Louis, MO on 05/15/2011
We have had Odorous(?) ants all over our yard, in our detached garage, and worst of all infiltrating our brick house and moving in without paying rent! They seem to be amazing at exploiting even the smallest holes and crevices in our mortar. This had been going on for several years and so had our use of over-the-counter control methods. We were going nuts because we keep a clean house and yard and don't remember sending out invitations to the local ACIRC (Ant Council of Immigration Relocation and Colonization). A friend of mine turned me to this granular stuff and the ants loved it. Within seconds of application to their many separate foraging trails you could see an uncountable many, hoisting the IED's (Incognito Extermination Devices) onto their backs. Given the ferocity in their step and excitement on their little faces I could imagine the feast they were planning for the unsuspecting royal family when they got back to their colony. I did get a couple of complaints from a couple of lesser known colonies, but after another application or two there were no more complaints, and the genocide was complete. We can easily say that this stuff worked. Those ants loved the taste, we love the fact that they're dead, and all is now well in our little world. If this stuff gets wet, it's useless. So watch the weather and plan accordingly. Be sure to check back 10 minutes or so after applying, because I was amazed at how fast they took up the bait; keep'em well fed.

I have used the recommended bait three times over the course of several weeks in an attempt to control ant mounds that are in my yard. The ants are large red and black in color and are numerous. So far I have not seen any diminished activity with the ant colonies.
It's the best!!!
By Barb in Sykesville, MD on 08/21/2017
I found that the type of ants I have love this stuff. I just put a little bit in a medicine bottle cap & it draws them in, they take it back & ants no more.
The best I have used
By Don in Colchester on 08/01/2017
This works great they eat and then bring it back to the nest and share, and that's all it takes. No more ants Works great.
By Allen in Taylor, MI on 07/15/2017
This stuff does the job. Works fast too. I sprinkled some of this on ant hills and other places around the outside of my house, and it was all gone a half hour later. Takes about three days to kill the colony, but no more ants!
Good for use outdoors
By Ruth in Sacramento, CA on 06/29/2017
This granular ant bait works very well outdoors in places where large numbers of little black ants are congregating -- along the edge of concrete decks, under flower pots, etc.

Works on hard to kill ants!
By Bill in Fredericksburg, TX on 05/03/2017
I am not a fan of killing harvester ants - they are considered beneficial ants and are not aggressive unless you stand in the middle of their pile... but sometimes you have to take care of things. And that time is when the harvesters invade our yard from the pasture. Nothing worked well until we tried Advance 375A. Sprinkle the protein tidbits around the colony and they immediately begin hauling the insecticide laced nuggets into the underground den. Ants begin dying within a day or two. Don't be stingy with the feed to be sure the queen has her share. Kill the queen and the ant colony will die over the course of a couple of weeks. Again, I want to confirm we do not like killing harvester ants except in our small yard. They can have the rest of the ranch.
no more ants
By John in illinois on 04/26/2017
no more ants, put it in the bait trays and no more ants in the house

Fast and effective
By Eric in Dauphin, PA on 04/12/2017
Purchased the gel and granules due to carpenter ants on a porch. The ants were going up and down a post and I didn't want to start removing soffit to find the nest. I put some gel and granules on the handrail and the ants immediately began taking the bait. Two weeks later and there is no sign of the ants.

Proven Ant Bait
By Rich in Arlington, VA on 03/31/2017
I have used Advance 375A Ant bait for three years, and it is very effective against small and medium-size brown ants and carpenter ants. I sprinkle it around ant hills as they emerge and under plants and along paths where ants travel. Two cautions: Do not use near dogs (who love the smell) and buy a new container each year to maintain peak effectiveness.

QDo household pets need to be removed from the premises when Advance 375A has been spread about the home?
A †Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait†when applied properly is too small of an amount to harm an animal as large as a pet.† You should keep the container of the granule in a safe place as you would any other cleaning solution or product.† Keep in mind this product is only 0.011 per cent†active ingredient and the remaining 99.989% is food products that attracts the ants to eat it, so it would take a large amount of this product, almost the whole jug for an animal to get sick.

QWhich Advance product is best for carpenter ants, Advance Carpenter Ant Bait or Advance 375A Select?
Same active ingredient, at exactly the same concentration, but different labels. Both are labeled for use as bait for carpenter ants. So, I am puzzled by the overlap between these two very similar Advance products.
AThe manufacturer (of the Advance ant baits) has recognized a need to have a product that is specifically labeled and formulated for carpenter ants. The Advance Carpenter Ant Bait has granules that are perfectly sized for this type of ant and the bait matrix itself is slightly different to be more attractive to this species even though the active ingredient is the same.
QWhat is the best way to control western thatching ants?
What products would you recommend for controlling a large exterior population of these ants on wooded acreage? Including large mounds of the ants.
AMany of our customers have had success with broadcasting Advance 375A in the yard over and around the mounds and then applying Termidor as a liquid treatment around the perimeter. Termidor is our best selling ant control product.
QDo you need to water in Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait to be effective?
ANo, there is no need to water in Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait. This is actually a product that insects will eat and carry back to the colony. Please take a few moments to read over the product label to be sure you are following all directions so that you will have great results.

QDeltagard doesn't seem to effect ant colonies. Is there another product that works better?
I'm a repeat customer and enjoy using your products, as they all seem to work well when used correctly. Part of my regimen consists of applying Deltagard to my lawn outside, although it controls roaches and other bugs I still see ants nests all over the yard in fact they increase in amounts. I find myself having to sprinkle some delta dust to get rid of them. Do you have anything specifically for preventing red and black ants making nests in my yard? Thanks.
AInsecticide granules like DeltaGard do a great jobs on most insects. However, since ant colonies are underground and so is the queen, in order to eliminate the ant colony you need to get a product down underground where the queen and other members are that don't normally leave the colony. The insecticide granules like DeltaGard only kill the worker ants that walk on top of the ground and look for food. While the product is killing some of the ants, the queen and rest of the colony is still thriving underground. It is recommended to use an ant bait granular bait for your issue. Instead of killing the ants, bait granular is a food the ants pick up and take back to the colony like any other food. They end up passing the food around, the bait, and the poison ends up being fed to the queen and all of the other colony members that do not normally go outside. This method should kill the entire colony, not just the workers that walk on the surface. Our most popular ant bait is Advance 375A. You should not apply any more insecticide like DeltaGard while using bait because you don't want to kill the ants before they make it back with the bait. Apply the bait when it is not going to rain for a couple days if you can help it. You should try to let the bait remain dry as long as possible.

QI would like to know if Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait can be used in a vegetable garden?
A The only way you can use Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait in a vegetable garden is if you place the granules in a bait plate station so that the granules do not come into contact with the plants. You can also sprinkle the granules around the outside perimeter of the garden.

QIs it safe to use the Advanced ant bait around a raised bed organic garden if the colony is in the garden pot?
I was told that I could use the Advanced ant bait around the outside of the garden pots even though it's an organic garden. My concern is that the the colony is inside the pot, around the roots. So the bait would end up in the pot with the plants even if I don't sprinkle it on the dirt of the pot. How can this still be safe?
A We would would using the Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait inside of bait plate stations if you are wanting to use this around your garden. If they are placed carefully inside of your garden or around it, this is safe for use in the area.

QWill it be ok if I add a drop of honey to the Advance 375A Granular Bait?
The carpenter ants have avoided the baits on my kitchen counter for two days now (containing Advance 375A)
A Baiting will take time and ants (including Carpenter Ants) will change their nutritional needs periodically throughout the year. You may want to incorporate the Maxforce FC Carpenter Ant Bait Gel if they are foraging for something sweet, rather than trying to add to an existing granule bait. We do not suggest baiting on countertops. We recommend applying the baits in our Bait Plate Stations. For more information on a successful treatment program, please review our How to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants article for additional tips on eradication.

QIs Advance 375A Select Granular Bait effective for an indoor problem with Ghost Ants?
Ghost Ants is what our former pesticide company called them. All we seem to do is move them from one spot to another. What do you recommend to use to get rid of them and keep them outside. FL home.
A The most effective way to get rid of ants will be to use a product that will not only kill the ants that actually come into contact with treated surfaces but will also be transferred back to the nest. There are a variety of liquid concentrates that work with a transfer effect such as†Termidor SC,†Taurus SC,†Dominion 2L†and†Adonis 2F.†All of these products are for use outdoors only and should be sprayed directly on or immediately adjacent to the structure for ant control (they cannot be used indoors and they cannot be broadcast sprayed outdoors and they cannot be used on edible vegetation). You can also use ant baits indoors and outdoors for ghost ant control.†Ant Baits†will be picked up by the foraging ants and carried back to the nesting area and shared. Most folks choose to use a combination of products. They use ant baits indoors and in sensitive areas and they use the liquid concentrates outdoors.

QI have an infestation of big headed ants as well as my neighbors. What product would you recommend?
My exterminator has sprayed several times?
AInsecticide granules such as Bifen granules would be a good choice to help control the population of big headed ants as it will last for 3-4 months. Bifen Granules will kill ants that venture on to treated areas. Another great choice would be to use Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait. This bait is also labeled for big headed ants specifically and would be a great choice for your use. Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (like birth control for ants) to kill big headed ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. This product would kill the ants that picked up the bait and also kill the ants back at the colony

QDoes Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait work on crazy ants?
I have severals mound in my backyard and front yard. I took an ant sample to a local pest control place and they said I had fire ants and caribbean crazy ants. Should I use this product or would the Maxforce or Invict Blitz ant bait granules work better? I don't know which one to choose.

QHow soon can I rebroadcast Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait around my house?
I used this around my house/yard last month. I am again noticing trails in my yard. Is it too soon to do another broadcast application?
AThe label for Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait states that you can retreat as needed. This means that if you have a heavy rain, or begin to see trails again you can retreat.

QTreating ants on my fig tree?
Is there a safe organic way of treating the figs on tree prior to ripening completely that will allow them to be eaten safely? I have over 200 figs still green and the size of a quarter on a 8 ft. honey fig tree.
AWe would suggest using something like Fertilome Horticultural Oil RTS. This product can be used up until the day of harvest. It is close to harvest you want to use an oil based like mineral or neem oil based products. You may also want to consult the master gardener in your area at Your Local Cooperative Extension Office.

QI purhased Advance 375A for ants. Now flies are attracted to it. Will it kill or feed them?
I have hundreds of them sitting on my patio and they're eating the granules. What do I do?
AThe flies are attracted to the ant bait as most of the ingredients in the bait are food based to help attract the ants. It's normal for the flies to be attracted to it and any fly that consumes some of the granule will most likely die from the poinson built in. To try and deter the flies from the ant bait, you could use a specifically formulated fly bait like our Maxforce Granular Fly Bait. It attracts the flies not only through food but with a sexual pheromone as well. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
