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. 

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 05/06/2010
    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 05/13/2010

    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!

    By Bb in Rosemark, TN on 06/14/2010

    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.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Could not believe it
    By Bobby in Houston, Texas on 10/02/2017

    I generally do not write reviews. A product has to be either really good or really bad to prompt me to go online to mention it. I bought this product and I was skeptical. We had an infestation of ants and they were everywhere. The rains had driven them indoors and I tried everything to get rid of them. I went online and searched for a product that people recommended. It was Advion. It worked. it took 3 days to get to me and I put it out immediately. The first day, there was a flurry of activity by the ants (I guess this is normal). After day 3 I began to notice fewer and fewer ants. By day 5, they were all gone and have not returned. This stuff works exactly as advertised. Excellent product. I highly recommend it.

    Great product worked exceptionally well and quick it also took out the fruit flies that were such a pest. I think buying the bait boxes is a great idea I just put the gel in close them up and never had to worry about it. It's worth the extra money to get the bait boxes believe me. Don't hesitate to buy this product it... works and it's extremely fast shipping!

    We tried all the store products and none of them worked. A friend had a tube of Advion Ant Bait Gel and said it really works and gave us one , we tried it and sure enough it did. We then bought the 4 tube size because we learned that a 2nd dose is needed, for the next generation. We spotted the next batch and once again we put out the killer. We are now 2 mo out and no more ants.

    By Monika in Los Angeles, Ca. on 08/13/2017

    I'm battling invasions of ants, have been for years, no pest control has been able to help properly, so I came across Advion Ant Bait Gel and am amazed at how well it works. Ants walk right up to the Gel and surround it with a vengeance, they love the taste, they then bring it home to the hive and by doing this poisoning slowly but surely their colony. I'm seeing less and less ants every day, I am very happy!

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.

QMy dog ate some Advion Ant Bait, will it hurt her?
My 100 lb lab ate one of the Advion Ant Bait Arena's. Will it harm her in any way?


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.

I applied the bait like an hour ago but I don't know how long it takes for the ants to feel the affects of the ant gel.

QThe label says REL 10/13. Is that an expiration date? Thank you.
I just received item, and was just wondering if this item is expired. Thank you.

AThe 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.

QHow long until I can clean up Advion Ant Bait Gel I've put out?
My ant issue is largely in the kitchen, in particular on the counter where the grout has cracked along where the wall meets the counter top. I ran Advion Ant Bait Gel all along this seam last night.

QWe found 1 roach in our kitchen under the garbage can. A month ago, we also found one in the kitchen near the back door. Should we use Advion? My concern is that if we do not have a problem, I don't want to attract more. Also, should we put the gel on the inside or the outside, and where?


Yes, we would recommend using Advion Gel Bait in areas where roaches tend to congregate or hide. Advion should be applied to areas frequented by cockroaches, such as around doors and windows, behind and under appliances, cabinets, drawers, sinks and openings where the plumbing pipes are.   For best results, Advion should be used in conjunction with Insect Growth Regulators, such as Gentrol Point Source Stations, for even more complete control of all life stages of cockroaches. For light to moderate infestations of cockroaches, apply 1-3 spots of Advion cockroach gel bait per 10 linear feet. Each spot of Advion gel bait should equal about 0.5 grams (approx. 1/4” diameter).

QAfter my house was treated for termites, ants moved into the old mud tubes that the termites left behind. Is there anything I can do to get rid of the ants?
I have house cats and a small dog, so I need products that are pet safe.


Depending on what type of ants you are dealing with, and if you are able to see where the ants are trailing inside, it may be possible to treat with an ant bait gel such as Advion.  The bait is very attractive to ants and offers a delayed reaction which allows the ants to get back to their colony where they will spread it.  Another option would be to use a spray such as Phantom II, which has a transfer effect, allowing insects to pick up the product and spread it to one another through contact.  All of these products are pet safe if used as directed.

QIs it normal to see dead ends everywhere when using the Advion Ant Bait Gel?
I have ants in my house and in a morning when I go to the kitchen I find little dead ant bodies littering the floor. They're everywhere. And then during the day, before my very eyes, they come out from under the baseboards, walk around a bit then roll up and die. Some ants also seem to pick up some of the dead bodies. Are they eating them? That's a side question but really I want to know if this is normal. Should I be seeing lots of dead ants all over the floor? Will this and eventually? Will this poison to kill the queen?


It is normal to see dead or dying ants during the ant baiting process with Advion Ant Bait Gel. Ants will have to succumb at some point after eating the bait and they are often "kicked out" of the colony after they start acting sick, thus you will see sick or dead ants. It is also normal to see live ants removing dead ants for this reason as well.  Usually the ants have already returned and spread the bait to the colony at this point and the work has been done.  In time the bait will eliminate the entire colony including the queen, just keep putting the bait out as long as you are seeing activity.

01/28/2016 Ron from Thousand Oaks / Newbury Park, Ca

QBought the Advion bait gel and have seen no effect on little black ants. Is there another bait product I should use?
Live in Newbury Park, CA. (Thousand Oaks, CA area) Have these little black ants that come in (maybe to get away from heat or too much water). Advion gel did not work. Was this the wrong product? What would be a better general prdiuct for them to take back to colony to wipe it out?


There could be a couple of different reasons why the Advion Ant bait may not seem like its working for you. If they are going to it a little but you are still seeing activity of ants, it is likely because the product has not been down long enough for an entire colony to be eliminated. It can take at least a month if not longer for you to see an ant colony diminish or be gone from your home completely. If you aren't sure where the ants are coming from there could be multiple colonies or satellite colonies that are utilizing items in your home including the bait as a food source to sustain themselves which will take longer for the whole population of ants to be eliminated.

Another possibility is if you are only using a bait gel (which is a sugar based bait) and the ants are looking for a protein right now (which is normally a granular bait like Advance 375A) then they will pass by that gel all day long if that is not the nutrient they need. Now their nutritional needs for the colony to grow can change on a day to day or week to week basis. This is why we normally recommend putting down both a sugar and a protein bait at the same time to accomodate any needs the ants have and want. We go over this and other recommendations and tips in our Ant Control Guide.

If for any reason the ants dont go to a gel or a granular bait then you would need to get the type of ant you have ID'd. There are certain types of ants that do not readily accept baits because they make their own food. We recommend that you get the small ants identified to see if this may be your problem. You can contact an entomologist through your local cooperative extension office to get an insect identification. If you do have a species of ant that doesn't accept bait you can always use a product such as Termidor SC. Termidor SC is a non-repellent product that is picked up on the fine hairs of an ants body and then inadvertently spread through the ant colony by normal social interaction. Most people notice that the entire ant infestation is gone in 1-3 weeks. The only downside to Termidor SC is that it is an outdoor only product. If you need to treat indoors you can use Phantom. Phantom is a lot like the Termidor but it does take a little bit longer to see results and it can be used indoors.

QThe ants used to flock to Advion Ant Bait Gel but now they avoid it, why?


Ants generally look for either a sugar or a protein food source. Advion Ant Bait Gel is a sugar. We always recommend using something like Advance 375A Select Granular Bait in conjunction with the sugar bait. This will take care of both of their food sources. Please check out our Ant Guide as well for tips on how to prevent and treat for ants.
