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.
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
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.
- Placements of spots or lines of gel should be close to active foraging trails, nest sites, or to areas known to be active.
- Apply approximately 1/4" in. diameter spots (about the size of a pea).
- Apply lines of ADVION ant bait gel of approximately 1/8" wide and 2" long; up to 3" long for highly active foraging trails.
- 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.
- 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.

Advion is Great!
By Ivan in Chelan, Washington on 05/06/2010
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.

Advion Ant Bait Gel

Advion Ant Bait Gel
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!

The Ant Bait that works
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.

I was told about this product by an exterminator and it is really awesome. If you see some ants in your home, you use the syringe to shoot a small blob of this clear odorless gel. Soon after you will see hundreds of ants and then the next time you look, the ants are gone, the blob is gone and no ants anymore. Great product and great company to order from.

Effective Product but monitoring required
By David in St. Louis, MO on 07/05/2011
This is a very effective product, a well regarded pest control rep we use at our company recommended it and he was 'spot on'. Ants are very bad near my house and there are select areas within my house where they are very active. I've found that if you can: focus on your inside ant problem and begin treating it then locate where outside ant pressure exists (it is generally around the perimeter and close to where the inside problem is seen)-then treat that, you can reduce or eliminate the inside problem for awhile. Billions of ants and one of you-the odds are not in your favor however, Advion has performed the best of any of the treatments I've used so far. BUT!, don't relax, monitor activity-for me reappearance begins about 4 days after they've vanished - I know they are only rearming for a new assault. Periodic treatments at external and internal locations based on monitoring information works very well, using Advion has pleasantly surprised me with its effectiveness.

By Tony in Saltillo, MS on 05/03/2011
Our exterminator tried everything to rid my office of ants but nothing worked. We bought this product because a friend recommended it. I placed a few very small dabs along one of the ant runs, they were instantly attracted to it (like the person below said "like it was chocolate candy"). The little dabs turned black from ants. When we came in the next day there were no ants..... PERIOD!!! We've had to re-treat some of the areas several months later after big rains but I think that's because we didn't treat outside at all. I highly recommend this product to anyone that has an ant problem. Don't waste your money on anything else. Just keep in mind that a little dab is plenty so these 4 syringes will last a long time.

Ants preferred Dupont over Uncle Albert and MaxForce Gels
By Bruce on 04/15/2011
I have two infestations of ants. In both areas the ants were very tiny. I cut a 3X5 index card into 1" X 3" strips. I put all three gel baits on one strip in rows next to each other. At first there was a LOT of activity and they seemed to go for all three it was so crowded, although it appeared the Dupont and Uncle Albert were most preferred. Every 12 hours I put out new bait on strips of index cards and would get another upsurge in activity. As the numbers have decreased over three days I see distinct preference for the Dupont product, with Uncle Albert clearly in second place. It may be because it seems to be a little more moist than the Uncle Albert Super Smart and MaxForce Gel. The last couple days they pretty much ignored the MaxForce Gel. The activity is down significantly after 3 days. Your ants may have other preferences but this has been my experience. No matter what you choose refreshing the bait on a new index card certainly seems to increase activity. Note: I did put out some peanut butter and honey on a strip of index card at first to see what they preferred and they went for the honey.

Advion Worked Great
By L. in PA on 09/07/2010
This did the job the other reviewer said it would. I used it indoors. After a day or two the ants were gone. I'm not sure why anyone hires an exterminator for ants. It cost a fortune. I found Do my own Pest Control. The stuff you buy in the store doesn't do an effective job, but this stuff does. I was very happy. Outside I use Cy-Kick and Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait. I have chronic ant problems which I now take care myself.

I concur with others, Advion works well.
By Clem in Puyallup, WA on 08/19/2010
I used a combination of Advion and Advance granules to put an end to a small colony of carpenter ants invading our home. Although some ants carried off the Advance, they were certainly in the mood for the Advion as they gathered around lines of gel to feed but mostly ignored the protein bait. The ants were receptive to the Advion immediately. After the third day I slowed down on baiting as the population decreased dramatically. Every day fewer and fewer ants and now at about day 10 there is not one to be found. Great product DuPont! As a side note I did see some other species of really small ants carrying off the Advance granules....wasn't concerned about them but they weren't to be seen again after the second day either.

Advion Ant Gel
By Fran in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ on 08/07/2010
I had seen this product in action from a professional exterminator and couldn't believe my eyes! I was so happy to see I could get it. It came so quickly, and the service was great. I have already purchased another box of four for my neighbor. It is truly an amazing product. If you have the small black ants, you squirt a small amount and within a few minutes it will be covered with tons of ants and then the next time you turn around the ants are completely gone and so is the gel. It is clear and leaves no residue. A++++

By James in Houston, TX on 05/24/2010
Tried over the counter baits and sprays and couldn't get rid of ants. Put out 4 drops of Advion as a test to see if the ants would be attracted to it. They ate the bait and no ants were present the next day. This works great and doesn't take a lot to do the job.

Advion Ant Bait Gel
By Bob in Seattle, WA on 05/09/2010
This is the best ant killer I've ever used, bar none! You just find the path where the ants are traveling and put a drip or 2 there. A few of them will stop and take a little back to the nest and the next morning the whole nest is dead, or so it appears. We have had the place sprayed by professionals and we have to call them back constantly. With this product, you just put out a few drips where the animals won't get into it and your ant troubles will be gone!

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?
A 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.

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.
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

QHow long should you continue to use advion after you no longer see ant activity?
APlease continue to use Advion Ant Bait Gel until you go 30 days without seeing any activity.

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?
A 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?
A 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.

QCan Advion Ant and Roach be used in organic areas?
Is it safe to use and legal to use in a place that produces organic foods? Like organic gardens.
A Advion is not organic and would not want to be used in an organic setting. You would want to contact your Agricultural dept for further recommendations.

QHow long does it take for the ants to die
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.
A Advion Ant Bait Gel kills by transfer. The transfer effect can take minutes to hours. it can take up to 21 days to start to see a huge difference in population.
07/09/2014 Debbie from Downer's Grove, Illinois
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.

QI will be dispensing Advion cockroach bait gel, how long should I wait to check if more bait is needed?
There is light to moderate activity, not a heavy infestation.
AYou should check Advion Roach bait spots about once every couple of days at first to get a good idea of how quickly they are consuming what you have put out. If consumption seems slow and the infestation is light to moderate, you can probably go about 2 weeks between check in. If the bait becomes covered in a light layer of the normal household dust that falls, or if it becomes extremely hard and dry, wipe up the old bait and replace with new. Each bait placement should be no larger than the size of a green pea.

QWhen is the best time to apply Advion Ant Bait Gel?
Should this be applied at night when less human traffic is in the house or in the morning when away at work? I have a 2 year old daughter and wife who would freak out seeing a bunch of ants all swarming to the gel. Also how long of a time period should we see ants flock to the gel and then dissipate? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
AYou should place the gel directly into cracks and crevices near the areas where you are seeing activity so the children will not have access to the gel and it will stop the ants from being as visible to your wife and kids. Some ant species are more active during the day and some are more active at night but the time of day you place the gel will not matter. They will find it eventually. You should start see the number of ants dwindle within a week or so (some ant species have 100's of ants in the colony while others have millions so we cannot tell you for sure how long it will take to get rid of them for good).
05/02/2012 Lisa from Garland, Texas
QWhich product(s) should I use for massive infestation ants outdoors? (no fire ants)
I literally have ant trails on every step, tree,crack, and edge of my yard (the small ones like carpenter or pharoah) Can you tell me exactly which product(s) and how much to apply? Do I use some sort of station or apply it directly to the ground? Do I apply it next to any part of the ant trail? How close? How far apart from each other? Any help is greatly appreciated! These ants are taking over my entire property!
AWe recommend using our outdoor Ant Kit. The Outdoor Ant Bait kit comes with 4x Antopia ant Bait Stations and 2 x quarts of Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait . Ants will enter the stations, consume the bait and because of the delayed kill, will take it back to the ant colonies to share with the other ants. Placing the bait in the Antopia Ant Bait Stations will help keep it fresh, protect from non-target animals and also stop rain from washing it away. The Antopia Ant Bait Stations should be placed about 50 ft apart. You can also supplement the treatment by applying a protein bait such as Advance 375A Ant Bait Granules in your yard to help eliminate any ants that do not accept carbohydrate baits like the Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait.
08/27/2011 Melissa from Hanceville,alabama
QI put gel out and ants are coming from all over kitchen counter to it. Do i kill or let them keep eating?
AYou must let the ants eat the Advion Ant Bait Gel and return to their colony where they will spread the bait to the other ants in order to eliminate them for good. If you kill the ants while they are trailing over to the gel you will defeat the purpose of using the bait.
QIs Advion ant bait gel grease, oil or protein based?
Different species of ants are attracted to different foods at different times. Can you tell me what the base for Advion is?
AAdvion Ant Bait Gel is a carbohydrate based gel. Ant feeding cycles can usually be broken into two catergories, carbohydrate (sweet or sugar) feeding ants or protein (meat, grease, oil) feeding ants. In general liquid and gel ant baits are sweet or carbohydrate based. Granule and solid baits (ant bait stations) are usually protein based baits. We have put together a complete ant bait kit that includes both types of baits plus 12 ant bait stations to make ant baiting simple.
