Advion Ant Bait Gel

It is highly recommended to also use Advance 375A Ant Granular Bait which is a protein 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.

ADVION ant bait gel is specifically formulated to be tasty to all major species of ants. Advion ant gel contains the new active ingredient, Indoxacarb, a powerful, nonrepellent insecticide. The slight delay in death caused by Indoxacarb, encourages ants to eat the bait and return to the nest site to share the bait with other ants, eventually killing the entire colony. Use of Advion will help eliminate ants within days of application.

We provide 1 Plunger PER ORDER to expel the bait from the tubes.  You can purchase extra plungers or you can purchase a bait gun, such as the Masterline Professional bait gun, for use with this product. 

Active Ingredient: Indoxacarb 0.05%
Target pests: All major species of ants including: Argentine, Big Headed, Carpenter, Cornfield, Crazy, Field, Ghost, Harvester, Honey, Little Black, Odorous House, Pavement, Pharaoh, Pyramid, Red Imported Fire Ant, Rover, Thief and White Footed.
For use in: Indoors and outdoors
Pet safe: Yes, when used as directed.
Manufactured By: Syngenta

How Advion Ant Bait Gel Works

Advion Ant Bait Gel takes advantage of the natural behavior of ants. Foraging worker ants are attracted to the sweet formula of the bait. After consuming the bait, the foraging ants will return to the nest and share the bait with the rest of the colony, including the queen(s). By ingesting the active ingredient Indoxacarb the ant’s nervous system is disrupted, ultimately ending in death.

Indoxacarb is an oxadiazine pesticide originally manufactured and patented by DuPont. Since Indoxacarb is the only chemical in its class, it offers laboratory-tested benefits that other pesticides simply cannot duplicate. For starters, Indoxacarb remains active even after digestion so it can be passed along to other insects through bait sharing. It is the first pest control bait that scientists have found to remain active after it has been transferred twice after the first lethal dose. Passing poison like this from one insect to another is known as horizontal transfer.

Target Pests

All major species of ants

PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ADVION ANT BAIT GEL: all major species of ants, including Acrobat, Argentine, Big-headed, Carpenter, Cornfield, Crazy, Field, Ghost, Harvester, Honey, Little black, Odorous house, Pavement, Pharaoh, Pyramid, Red Imported Fire Ant, Rover, Thief, and White-footed

Target Uses 

Advion Ant Bait Gel can be used whenever listed ants are present and foraging for sweets. Bait is simple and convenient to use, and it is ideal in situations where sprays may not be desired. Baits have extremely low toxicity in mammals, so they are safe to use in sensitive areas. Baits are also applied in cracks and crevices, so application is discreet. Advion Ant Bait Gel lets the ants take the product to the colony for you, avoiding the guesswork of finding a nest.

Advion Ant Bait Gel is also very light in color, making it ideal for placements on lighter surfaces where darker baits would be noticeable.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Indoxacarb 0.05%

Advion Ant Bait Gel Application Instructions

Unscrew the blue tip that comes on the tube of gel. Replace with the enclosed long application tip to assist in applying gel bait directly into crack and crevices. Remove and clean the application tip after use, cleaning as needed, and replace with the closed cap before storing to keep gel from drying.

ADVION ant gel should be applied as spots of gel or small lines of gel.

  1. Placements of spots or lines of gel should be close to active foraging trails, nest sites, or to areas known to be active.
  2. Apply approximately 1/4" in. diameter spots (about the size of a pea).
  3. Apply lines of ADVION ant bait gel of approximately 1/8" wide and 2" long; up to 3" long for highly active foraging trails.
  4. Apply as many placements as possible to active trails or foraging areas without disrupting the natural behavior of the ants.

Advion ant bait gel may be used effectively in ant bait stations.

*Always read the product label completely before use.

**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.**

Each 30 gram tube of Advion Ant Bait Gel yields approximately 30 bait placements. Each box of four tubes yields approximately 120 bait placements.

Advion Ant Bait Gel is for use in the following areas:

Residential, institutional, commercial, and industrial areas, including single and multi-family residential buildings, schools, commercial and industrial facilities (including warehouses, apartments, supermarkets, restaurants, motels, hotels, hospitals, zoos, food handling/storage establishments) and transportation equipment such as aircraft, trains, ships, boats, and buses.


Indoor applications can include cracks and crevices; along walls or floors, in and around furniture and cabinetry, behind or under appliances, around sinks, within or near garbage collection areas, attics and crawl spaces. Inspect applications periodically for consumption/activity and apply additional bait as needed. Do not apply to surfaces that food contacts or to areas that are routinely washed, such as food preparation surfaces.

Do not apply Advion Ant Bait Gel to surfaces where the temperature exceeds 120-130 degrees F because this could cause the bait to liquefy and lose effectiveness.


See above for general application instructions.

ADVION ant bait gel may be applied to pest entry sites such as along windows, doors, between construction elements, sewer areas, adjacent trees which ants are using as a nesting site, along walls, garbage holding areas, or other places acting as an ant nesting site. Inspect applications periodically for consumption/activity and apply additional bait as needed.

Extreme heat or cold, direct sunlight and water may reduce the residual effectiveness. Apply Gel outdoors into bait stations such as Ant Café Refillable Bait Stations to protect bait from dust, rain, and sunlight. 

Advion Ant Bait Gel Features

*Advion ant bait gel is translucent, has no odor, and is a non-staining formulation that stays fresh for extended periods. This allows ants to eat more Advion ant bait gel over an extended period of time, resulting in control and elimination of entire colonies.

*Advion ant gel contains a unique active ingredient unlike any other ant gel, so it performs like no other.

*Pet safe when used as directed.

*Formulation is highly attractive to sweet-feeding ants.

*Labeled for a wide variety of household ants.

*Bait is easy and convenient to apply with enclosed plunger or a bait gun.

Extra Tips

*Store at room temperature, out of direct sunlight.

*Once a tube is opened, it should be used within 6 months for best results.

*Remember that different species of ants forage at different times of day, and colony sizes can greatly vary.

*Bait will dry up quickly if used on porous surfaces such as paper, concrete, or cardboard. Use a less porous surface such as bait plate stations, if needed.

*Do not use bait in the same areas as residual repellent sprays or where there may be residue from harsh cleaning products.

*Do not spray products on top of bait, as this may cause the bait to be less palatable.

*Avoid bait placements in areas exposed to air currents, such as in front of vents, as this will cause the bait to dry out more quickly.

*It is always recommended to use a protein bait, such as Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, in conjunction with a sweet bait such as Advion Ant Bait Gel.

    5 of 5 Stars  Advion is Great!
    By Ivan in Chelan, Washington on May 6, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    I have two words for ant control, Termidor and Advion. Using these two products will control your ants, period. If you still have ants after spraying outside with Termidor, then they are not coming in contact with it. You may have a colony in your walls, attic, or under your house.  I had such a situation. For these ants, I used Advion by getting a straw and cutting it into 3-4 inch pieces. I filled 2 or 3 pieces and placed them near the ants path (which happened to be in my cupboard, be careful using it around food). I left the straws there until there wasn't any more ants, about 3 or 4 days. I had this colony for years and it got them all. Now, I do an annual spray of Termidor in the spring and haven't had to use Advion since the first application 2 years ago. If you've been plagued by ants like I have (sometimes even in my bed, yuk!) do yourself a favor. Get this stuff and be rid of ants.

    By Mike in Grand rapids, mi on May 13, 2010

    Worked exactly as advertised. Placed bait in about ten locations where the ants could come in. They were still around for about three days and then they were gone! Haven't seen them for three weeks and counting. Have tried traps and store bought baits in previous years with little effect. This was a referral from a co-worker and I have already recommended this product to family members. Thanks!

    5 of 5 Stars  The Ant Bait that works
    By BB in Rosemark, TN on June 14, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    Over the years I have purchased several different types of ant bait. They all advertise that the ants will take the bait back to the colony thereby killing the rest. They never worked. I finally heard about Advion from our pest control man. It REALLY works. For the first time in years, we are ant-free.

    By Conor in Chicago, IL on May 12, 2015

    For the last three years we've had an infestation of ants hit our kitchen each Spring, crawling all over our counters, making food prep impossible. No matter how much we cleaned, sprayed with vinegar solution, or put out traps the ants kept coming back for weeks. After doing some research I decided to try Advion. I followed the directions on the package. Within 24 hours the ants had stopped crawling on the counters and stuck to the bait plates I had put out with the Advion on them. 10 days later the ants are gone. We'll see if they return next year but for now I'm beyond happy.

    We have had pharoah ants in the kitchen, swarming over the granite tops. I placed the bait around all the joints where the tops meet the wall, small drops spaced an inch apart. Great fun to watch the little buggers help themselves. By the time the droplets dried down the ants had disappeared, not to be seen again with one small exception. Those I removed by hand, will see if another application is needed.

January 2, 2011 Martha asked:

QWhat would happen if your pet licked a spot where Advion Ant Bait Gel had been applied?


Nothing. Unless you have pet insects, there would be no effect if your pet ate a small quantity of the Advion Ant Bait Gel. According to the MSDS "No specific intervention is indicated as the compound is not likely to be hazardous" if ingested. Even though it is very unlikely that there would be an adverse reaction if ingested, it is still important to follow the product label which indicates that the bait should be placed in areas that are inaccessible to pets and children.

April 22, 2012 S from Jacksonville,nc asked:

QHow do I get the advion gel bait out of the tube? Do I cut the red tip?
Two additional red tips came in the package with no instructions on how to get gel out. I have tried to twist off the red tip to no avail. Do I cut the tip? What are the two longer tips for?

AThe red tip that comes on the Advion Gel Bait tubes is a cap that screws off. Once the red cap is off you can screw on one of the red application tips. The application tip is used to help get the gel directly into cracks and crevices where it is supposed to be applied by putting down one small dot every 10-12 inches.

June 9, 2011 Ken asked:

QWhich ant gel is better, Advion Ant Bait Gel or MaxForce FC Ant Bait Gel?

AAdvion Ant Bait Gel and MaxForce FC Ant Bait Gel are on a pretty even keel with each other. They are both very attractive to ants and offer a delayed reaction which allows the ants to get back to their colony and spread the bait. We can tell you that MaxForce FC Ant Bait Gel is a bit more popular which could be because it has been around longer than the Advion or because it contains Fipronil which is known to spread pretty fast through the ant colony. A lot of people use the color of the gel as their deciding factor. Advion Ant Bait gel is a white creamy color and less noticeable on light surfaces while MaxForce FC Ant Bait Gel is brown and less noticeable on dark surfaces.

QDo you have products that are effective against pharaoh ants?
I noticed little ants in my kitchen, and I'm sure they are pharaoh ants based on a recent home improvement radio show here in Fort Wayne, IN. I haven't tried ant spray or anything else at this point because the "professional" on the show stated that would make the problem worse and the ants would branch off into separate colonies. I've tried Home Depot and Lowe's. Some of their products state on the package that they are NOT effective against pharaoh ants. I need a product that is specific to eradicating pharaoh ants.

AWe do carry several ant baits that are labeled for Pharaoh ant control. We recommend that you offer both a gel bait such as Advion ant bait gel as well as a granule bait such as the Advance 375A. Offering both baits will ensure that the ants will have their nutritional needs met and at least one of the baits will be accepted by the ants. Most of the bait manufacturers recommend that you also do outdoor treatments with a product labeled for Pharaoh ants such as Termidor SC. Pharaoh ants can have huge colonies outdoors and as you know smaller satellite colonies indoors. Eliminating the outdoor colony will stop new ants from moving in. Termidor SC is a a great choice because it is non-repellent insecticide that also has a transfer effect. That means that ants cannot tell that the Termidor SC is there and will walk right over it and then pick the product up on their bodies and inadvertently carry it back to to the colony, then through normal social interaction the ants spread the Termidor SC and wipe out the colony. Termidor SC only needs to be applied two times per year and is effective for a wide variety of insects including ants

QDoes Advion Ant Gel work well on carpenter ants?
It is a fair amount cheaper than the Maxforce product. Also,does it lose it's strength after a year even if not opened? I can't see using all four tubes within the year.


Advion Ant Gel is labeled for carpenter ants and is also a great product.  The manufacturer does recommend that you use the product within 2 years of purchase, but it could last much longer if you store it at room temperature and not in direct sunlight.  This only applies to the tubes that you have not opened.  Once you open a single tube and expose it to air, it should be used within 6 months.

June 18, 2015 D. from Pa asked:

QUnopened tubes and expiration/potency of Advion Roach Bait Gel
You say this stuff is good from one year after purchase. Does that include unopened tubes that are stored properly as I highly doubt I will need 4 tubes in one or two seasons? Will these unopened tubes be just as effective the next year or do they loose some of their potency? The REL date says 09/14 which must be the expiration date since any product like this would have an expiration indicated. I just received my package today.

A The date on your tubes of Advion Roach Bait Gel is not an expiration date as professional insecticides and their shelf life is entirely dependent on how you stored it. The REL is referring to the release date, or the time in which that batch was packaged so they know if any problems occur when it was made and how many tubes were distributed. The shelf life of unopened tubes when stored in temperature stable environments is normally 1-2 years. The active ingredient within the product is not what usually goes bad, its the food based ingredients that make up the majority of the product to attract the insects. Just like any food, over time it will start to become stale and less attractive to the insects to eat. While we cant say for certain that it will still be attractive after the 2 years, you are welcome to still put it down for the insects to go to as a food source and may continue to see control.

The ants are coming up through the base board heating system on the copper piping. The heater is currently not in use but I want to make sure when the winter season comes the heater can be used without fear of fire due to advion gel in the crevice.

A You may use Advion Ant Bait Gel around copper pipes but I would advise against putting gel inside of a baseboard heating system. You should be able to put small dabs of the gel around the baseboard heating system without putting it inside and the ants will still seek out and consume the bait.

A The code on most insecticides of any sort including gels will be an indicator to the manufacturer of what batch the product came from and when it was produced or packaged. The shelf life and expiration is all dependent on how you store the product once you receive it. The product you received should have a minimum of a year shelf life, if not two.

We recommend that you contact your veterinarian. In most cases, an animal would have to eat very large quantities of ant bait gel for there to be any problem. The product label and the MSDS are always available on the Advion Ant Bait Gel page if you need to contact your veterinarian. In the future, be sure to apply to the gel in small dots directly into cracks and crevices, so that the ants will have easy access to the gel and your pet will not.
