Advance Carpenter Ant Bait

It is highly recommended to also use Maxforce Carpenter Ant Gel which is a sugar bait.  You should always give ants a choice as they may be in the mood for either a protein (granule) or a sugar (gel) bait.

Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is specially formulated to kill carpenter ants. Carpenter Ant Bait can be used indoors and outdoors to control the ant population. This carpenter ant bait formulation provides for the carpenter ant's dietary needs while using the delayed-action insecticide Abamectin. This product works well when used with a gel bait such as Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel.




How Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Works

ADVANCE Carpenter Ant Bait is a ready-to-use product for use in controlling numerous ants both indoors and outdoors. This bait formulation combines a mixture of foods and the delayed action insecticide, Abamectin. This insecticide acts to reduce the population of worker ants and can cause an immediate halt in egg production resulting in colony elimination. Avoid use of other insecticides or sprays on or near Advance.

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.

Target Pests

Carpenter Ants

PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ADVANCE CARPENTER ANT BAIT: Carpenter Ants and many common varieties of household ants such as Acrobat, Argentine, Bigheaded, Crazy, Field, Fire, Harvester, Lasius, Little Black, Pavement, Pharaoh, Odorous House, and Thief Ants

Target Uses

Use Advance Carpenter Ant Bait for many common household ants seeking protein. Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is specially formulated to kill carpenter ants. Advance can be used indoors and outdoors to control the ant population. This carpenter ant bait formulation provides for the carpenter ant's protein dietary needs while using the delayed-action insecticide Abamectin. This product works well when used in combination with a bait gel such as Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel. (These two baits may be purchased together in our Carpenter Ant Kit #1.) The two baits also can be used side-by-side in convenient and clear bait plate stations.

Baits are also a great tool in sensitive situations where spraying is not acceptable. Baits have extremely low toxicity to people and pets, and they can be applied discreetly.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Abamectin 0.011%

Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Application Instructions

Advance Carpenter 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 or in areas where ants forage. Indoors, use up to 1.5 oz. of product in heavily traveled sites. Do not use in areas that have been treated with insecticides or sprays. This will cause the bait to be unattractive to the ants. Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is best applied in small piles where ant activity is found.

Carpenter Ants are most active at night and tend to start trailing about 30 minutes before sunset. If activity is difficult to find, try looking around the structure about 1 hour before sunrise. Monitor bait placements closely and reapply as needed until no more ant activity is seen. How much product is needed will depend on colony size. Always read the product label.

Advance Carpenter Ant Bait 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 Carpenter Ant Bait:

*8 oz. per ½ acre – Broadcast application (1 lb./ acre)

*1 oz. per visible trail outdoors

*1.5-3.0 oz. per colony outdoors

*Up to 1.5 oz. per indoor crack, crevice, or void

Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is for use in the following areas:

In and around 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, and Non-Occupied Patient Areas of Hospitals and Nursing Homes. Golf Courses, Parks, Lawns, and Turf

Indoors-

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 B&G Bulb Duster or other appropriate application device to place the product into crevices or voids. Repeat application as necessary. Do not use in the food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments, restaurants or other areas where food is commercially prepared or processed. Do not use in serving areas while food is exposed or facility is in operation. Serving areas are defined as those areas where prepared foods are served such as dining rooms but excluding areas where foods may be prepared or held. Non-food areas are defined as areas such as garbage rooms, lavatories, floor drains (to sewers), entries and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets and storage (after canning or bottling). When applying this product in the home, all food processing surfaces and utensils should be covered during treatment or thoroughly washed before use. Exposed food should be covered or removed.

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.

Outdoors-

BROADCAST APPLICATION: Use this product at a rate of 1 lb. per acre. 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 1 ounce of product. Repeat application as necessary.

INDIVIDUAL COLONY TREATMENT: Use 1.5 to 3 ounces of product per colony. Repeat application as necessary.

If using residual sprays, do not spray on top of bait applications or use bait in areas where sprays have been applied.

Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Features

*Size and bait matrix are specifically formulated for Carpenter Ants.

*Attractive to a wide variety of protein feeding ants.

*Extremely low toxicity to people and pets.

*Can be used indoors and outdoors.

Extra Tips

*Do not use in areas that have been treated with sprays or residual insecticides.

*Use in conjunction with a sweet bait for best results.

*Store and apply out of wet areas. Bait may spoil more quickly or be washed away in rain.

*Use within one year of purchase for best results.

*Can be used in convenient and clear bait plate stations for easy monitoring and clean-up. This is especially helpful near food-handling areas, such as in kitchens.

*Do not disturb the natural behavior of trailing ants or foraging ants. Placements should be made near the ants, but not on them or in the middle of the trail. By disrupting their normal behavior, bait avoidance may occur.

*Monitor bait placements closely and reapply as needed until ant activity ceases. Colony size will vary, so many repeat treatments may be needed to eradicate a colony.

*Not sure if you have carpenter ants or termites? Read our article Difference Between Termites and Carpenter Ants or watch our video, Termites vs. Ants.

    5 of 5 stars  Exodus complete (I think)
    By Jonathan in Bellevue, WA on 07/13/2009
    Verified Purchase

    This is a follow-up to my last review, and an updated rating for Advance Carpenter Ant Bait. The running tally is: • 1,500+ dead or dying ants sucked up in the dirt devil • 6 queens (I can't believe I found 6). Scary. Glad I'm only renting. The activity is down to a minimum, and clearly their days are numbered since the live ones are moving very slow. (The toxins are taking effect) *evil laugh*. Each morning I find tiny ant graveyards in corners of the house that I had vacuumed clean the night before, and their numbers are decreasing. Good bye, carpenter ants. You will not be missed. If there's an ant afterlife, I hope it is an eternity closely resembling the final moments of your lives, twitching and convulsing uncontrollably, writhing in perceived pain. Advance: When you absolutely, positively have to kill every ant in the room. Accept no substitutes.

    5 of 5 stars  Advance Carpenter Ant Bait
    By Confidential in Marlton, NJ on 05/08/2010

    I have been doing pest control for over 25 years now, even owned a few exterminating companies myself. If there is one bait that I am 100% confident in using for Carp. Ants, it is the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait. I have used this product for a number of years now and the insects acceptance of this formula is amazing. Almost as soon as I distribute it, I see the Carp. ants picking it up and carrying it right back to their nest! The kill effect is also great, I tell my customers give it 4-7 days and no more ants.................and I've never had to go back to retreat any yet! I am also a first time buyer of products at DoMyOwnPestControl and was very very happy with the price and the fast no cost delivery. And NO! They didn't pay me to say that! Now I found a place that I can rely on for the best products, good pricing and fast delivery!

    3 of 5 stars  Carpenter Ant Bait
    By Pete in Arlington, TX on 08/25/2010

    Howdy, This was my second container of the Advance Ant Bait. The product arrive on time and in good order. My colony of carpenter ants took the Advance Bait for about two weeks and then totally ignored the bait. They would walk over or around and not pick up any bait. I did notice a reduction in ant activity of about 50% over the months of June and July while I kept the bait available for the ants. Thinking I had a "stale" batch of bait I decided to try a new container. No luck with the new container of bait I got in August. I gave up on the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait and tried the Max Force Gel Bait for carpenter ants. Once I got the colony to take the Gel Bait I had a 100% kill in two days.

    All I have to say after my first application of Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is wow! The ants immediately scurried off with the bait down their little ant holes. The next day, about 18 hours later, they were up on the surface staggering around and dead! I hope all of their nasty babies enjoyed the feast too. Thanks!

    5 of 5 stars  Saw a reduction in 4-5 days
    By Carrie on 06/17/2008

    We had carpenter ants in the house and in our old fencing. I put some Advance Carpenter Ant Bait out and they went crazy carrying it back to the nest. Saw a reduction in ants in about 4-5 days. I also recommend the Talstar professional insecticide spray to use on your yard. It does not seem to deter the ants from the bait, like some other sprays.

    By Robert in wisconsin on 09/14/2015

    This stuff is junk, the ants would have nothing to do with it. I put this out with Maxforces Carpenter Ant Bait, and they eat the Maxforce Bait and not the Advance Bait. The ant would walk right around it, and go to the Maxforce bait. It is a waste of money to buy.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    We recommend you use both a liquid ant bait and a granular ant bait because ants can be picky and will sometimes only accept the liquid bait and sometimes only accept the granule bait depending on what nutritional needs they are trying to meet. You can use both bait formulations at one time to insure effectiveness.

    By Jfs in Carrollton, GA on 05/11/2015

    I have done a lot of research on this pesky ants. After another failed visit from the "pros" to get rid of them I decided to try to do it myself, and although there are many positive reviews on here I remained skeptical. But then I thought it can't be worse than my local exterminator and I'm willing to give it a go. Prior to ordering and receiving the product I was confident I located the "main" nest and a secondary "satellite" nest closer to my house. Well, tonight was the first go at it. At dusk I went out and spread the bait around the base of the tree where I typically see a lot of activity, and near my garage door where I suspect is the secondary nest. A few hours later I go out with the flashlight and am astounded by the sheer volume of ants feeding on the bait and returning to their nest high in the tree. Same for the garage area. They did not go any further than the mounds of bait I put out. It was a virtual feeding frenzy. Too soon obviously to say what the end result will be, and I will update in next few days. But for now I can say that I feel the ants days seem to be numbered. Stay tuned.

    Have an ash tree in the front yard that was totally infested with carpenter ants. Put this out one afternoon, around the base (about two table spoons). Watched the ants carry it all inside. Checked next afternoon no activity at all. That was two weeks ago and still no ants. This stuff really works.

    5 of 5 stars  Highly recommend!
    By Qt in Rhode Island on 08/02/2011

    The Advance granules work phenomenally. With a little luck I found the ant trail was coming in through my bulkhead, so I placed these granules quite heavily around there, and I could literally see thousands of ants coming in and out carrying little yellow granules all day (hehehe ... it was awesome!) Within two days the ants were considerably less and now two weeks later I haven't found one ant anywhere in my house or shed (also had big problem in shed). I used it in conjunction with the Max Force gel, and I'm not sure which one worked better, but the combo worked like a charm! Just a side note I called a well known pest control place to get a quote, and they quoted twice the amount what I paid for this, but said that although included in price there was no way they were going to be able to get rid of all ants with just one treatment and would have to come back. I consider what I bought here one treatment, and I don't think I'll be seeing any ants soon from the looks of things :-) And one other note, I liked this method better than the exterminators. They were going to bomb so that I'd have residue all over everything. Once the ants were gone here I cleaned up some remaining granules inside and no residue left to worry about. Highly recommend!!

    5 of 5 stars  They ate it up for breakfast!
    By Kr in Boston, MA on 05/31/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I HATE ANTS. I have tried not to take it personally over the years, but Carpenter ants invade my house every year and it upsets me. Nothing I bought at the big box stores worked. I just wanted them dead dead dead. But after reading online I realized I wasn't killing anything, they just kept moving their nests. So I bought Advance and tried an experiment: I found a nest of carpenter ants in my front yard and sprinkled some of this on it. I sat on my front step and watched: in about 5 minutes they started to haul it into the holes. I felt the taste of victory. It was going to rain a little that night so I covered up the nest with a piece of plastic to keep it all dry, and by morning all the Advance was gone. No more ants! I recently tried it in my backyard but those ants didn't go for it, but they did go for a sugar bait (Terro), which took a few days to have an effect, but it did work. So please remember: If Advance didn't work for you, keep in mind that ants' appetites fluctuate between protein and sugar. The person at DMOPC.com told me to test first by placing a bit of peanut butter on one piece of tinfoil and honey on another and see which they go for. Then put the right stuff down. I have paid for exterminators in the past who just came and sprayed inside my house. And one of them told me he was using the same stuff I bought at the store so I shouldn't call him anymore! I feel so taken now by them, they weren't solving anything. But now with DMOPC.com I am in control. Thanks so much for your site and service.

    By Haywood in Woodstock, GA on 08/25/2010

    Remodeling older home, carpenter ants everywhere, tried some sprays and powder from local and large stores, the ants returned. A friend of the wife came by to see the house, the ant problem was talked about. She said no problem, she sent an email about Advance Ant Bait. I talked with a great sales lady and purchased the 2 lbs size and must say the problem was 98% reduced. I see some in the yard but not a one in the house. Very, very satisfied. Thank You, it does work.

If you have an ant problem this is an excellent product. I would also like to mention that we are using it for what are called Little Blacks so it is not just for Carpenter ants.

    By Calvin in Minneapolis, MN on 08/11/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I read all the reviews and was really excited about using the Carpenter Ant bait. I found the nests and ant trails and then baited them. The Carpenter ants avoided the bait, while birds and little ants devoured it. I'm rather bummed. I tried the bait again and again but to no avail. This bait will get rid of your sugar ants, but you'll have to spray to get rid of the true carpenter ants. That's what I've resorted to doing.

    4 of 5 stars  Awaiting the exodus
    By Jonathan in Bellevue, WA on 07/10/2009
    Verified Purchase

    I just used Advance Carpenter Ant Bait yesterday. I put it in all the corners and crevices I've seen these ants walking around, which is just about everywhere. I even located a shrub outside that apparently the ants have been using to get into the attic where I assume they're nesting, and poured about a half a cup at the base. They immediately went after the bait, forming a train (if you will) taking it back to their colony. By midnight, however, there was SO MUCH ant activity that I had to break out the Raid spray. As it turns out, their colony is in the ceiling above the master bedroom. I woke up this morning to a few crawling on me, and about 100 or so ants on the floor, half of which were dead, maybe from the raid, maybe not. I can't be sure. I hope this is the beginning of the end. If not, I may need to seek heavier weaponry. Maybe adopt an Anteater? Can you even do that? ...time to search for exotic pets.

QWhen is the best time to begin a program to eliminate carpenter ants using MaxForce Carpenter Gel Bait and Advance Carpenter Granular Bait?

AAnytime you see carpenter ants around the home, even one, is a good time to apply the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait around your home to discourage entry inside your house.  Early spring is when carpenter ants start to become active and are looking for food since they have been overwintering for a while.  So now (March) is actually a perfect time for applying the bait. We offer the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules and the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel in our Carpenter Ant Kit #1 and Carpenter Ant Kit #2.

QWhen placed outdoors, will the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait attract or harm pets?

A

The Advance Carpenter Ant Bait, when applied correctly will not harm children or pets. Pets can be attracted to the granules but if they are applied correctly the pets should not be able to eat enough of them for it to be harmful.  You are supposed to broadcast this product outside meaning you will be placing very small amounts in grass, mulch, etc.  A pet would have to consume a large quantity of this product, meaning they would have to get into the container and consume a large amount to get sick.  As with any cleaning product or otherwise, you should always keep the container out of reach of children and pets.

QHow do I know if the Advance Ant Granules are working?
We applied Advance granule three days ago and the first day ants just pick them up and carry back to the nest like crazy. But since yesterday they seem to have totally lost interest in it. They crawl right past the granules without picking them up. We did see some dead ants but there seem to be more ants coming out. Is it not working? Why does it lose its appeal?

ASeeing the dead ants means that the Advance Carpenter Ant granules are doing their job. Ants however  change their nutritional needs frequently This means that one day they may only forage for proteins, like the granules you put out and another day they may forage for carbohydrates like bait gels or liquids. We recommend leaving the granules in place and allow the ants to continue their natural foraging. You may also consider using an ant bait gel like the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel in combination with the Advance Granules.

QAre Advance Carpenter ant granules safe to use near a water supply ?

AAdvance Carpenter Ant Bait granules are safe to use as long as the bait granules cannot actually roll into the water source. The bait will not leach through the soil to contaminate water. If you do have a situation where the bait could roll into a water source you should place the bait into an ant bait station such as the Ant No More Ant Bait Stations.

QIs it too cold to use Advance Carpenter Ant Bait around the perimeter of my home?
I live in Houston, TX. Outside temperatures are now mid 50's at night and 60-70F in the day time. Is it too cold to use Advance around the perimeter of my home?

A

Not at all.  Any temperature is good to use the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait.  As long as there are ants around the bait will work, despite the temperature.  The only time you would not want to apply it is if it is raining or going to rain within 24 hours.  This product is best applied when you are going to have a few days of dry weather.

QIf I can smell this bait, should I be worried too much has been applied and I'm breathing in poison?
We hired a pest control company when we saw ants in our home. The "professional" brought this container, held it out to me and told me to smell it before he applied it in our attic. That was 10 days ago. Everyday, the part of the house directly under the attic smells worse and worse. It is the same fishy smell from the container of Advance bait he put into our attic. Why could the smell be getting worse? Did he use too much if we can smell it days later? Are the granules now settling into the insulation instead of laying on top allowing us to smell it better? Most importantly, is this dangerous to us or to our 5 month old baby? I'm just not sure whether the fact that we can smell this means we are breathing in poison.

ASince we do not make the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules, we would recommend contacting the manufacturer Whitmire Micro-Gen directly for your situation. They can be reached at 1-800-777-8570.

QIs Advance Carpenter Ant Bait safe to use in a child's room?
There are ants in my 3 year old's bedroom. I was thinking that I would drill holes in the wall and blow the bait inside the wall.

AYes, Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is a very safe ant granule bait that can be used inside the home.  Placing it in a wall void would be ideal so the ants would be able to find it but your child would not.  Although the bait is very safe and a child would have to consume a large amount to become ill, you of course want to always exercise caution and not leave bait where children or pets could easily access it.

QShould I treat outside for ants when spring comes?
I live in Ohio and it is winter now about 19 degrees. My husband found ants after removing the carpet in the family room on one of the edges. He vacuumed them everyday and more appear every day. We know now that we need to treat them. What products do we need to use?

ADo you know if they are carpenter ants?  If so, then you should purchase our Carpenter Ant Kit which comes with bait to place in the house for the ants to take back to wherever they are nesting.  This is important because if you do not take out the nest the colony will continue to reproduce and continue to be a problem.
