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.
|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.|
|NOT FOR SALE TO:||NY|
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 .
How Advion Ant Bait Gel Works:
By ingesting the active ingredient Indoxacarb the ants nervous system is disrupted, ultimately ending in death.
How to Apply Advion Ant Bait Gel:
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.
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
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.
Advion ant bait gel may be used effectively in ant bait stations.

This is the best product we have ever used. The ants go for it like it was chocolate candy. Thank you for having this product.

We had odorous ants everywhere, and we tried every brand of ant killer at the hardware store. We were very frustrated. The baits were placed as instructed. Three days later, no more ants!

Advion is Great!
By Ivan on May 6, 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
By Mike 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!

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.
Ants love this!
By Catherine on May 6, 2013
Advion Ant Bait Gel is one of my favorite ant baits... Squeezed some of this gel around some active ant sites and the ants immediately started to devour it. A few days later the ants were gone. Highly recommend this product when the ants are looking for sweet...works wonders early Spring.
absolutely worked quickly
By Davej on April 29, 2013
the ants immediately jumped on this and i had populations eating it in 3 areas of my house. all were gone within 3-5 days. i just applied in the morning and at night until they were gone. now we don't have random ants crawling on our arms/bodies while watching tv at night. we weren't even aware of one population until we left a dunkin donut on the counter - it attracted a swarm which is what caused me to look for better control. i had already applied ortho on the perimeter of the house.
small sugar ants went right to it
By Davej on April 13, 2013
ignored anything else and are camped out on the stuff. we have had signs of them for a while and i tried spraying the exterior with ortho but didn't affect. i have found 3 areas in the main level and i hope to see them all gone the way that they are eating the bait.
By Nancy on April 4, 2013
This ant bait is 10 times better than "Grants" bait. You can watch the ants come from out of nowhere and devour it, take it back to their colony, and within a few days, no ants! I used this in combination with Termidor around the outside of the house.
Advion Ant Bait Gel
By Robert on April 1, 2013
I had a professional exterminator put something similiar down last year that took care of the problem but he informed me that it was very expensive, even if he could get anymore,. When I first noticed ants again this Spring, I immediately order your product, Dupont Advion, after seeing your ad in Family Handyman. It has worked just as well as the professional. Ants were gone the day after I applied it. Thank you very much for the product and keeping it at a price the average working man can afford. I am well pleased with the product and would definitely recommend this for anyone with inside ants.
so far not working too well

Advion Ant Bait Gel
By Dolores on September 13, 2012
We've tried other ant baits and Advion is by far the best. It's like a miracle, we put the bait out there and there are no sign of ants the next day. This is the ultimate Ant Killer. Regards, Dolores Thiessen.

Every time I discover a carpenter ant in my kitchen I place a posit with a strip of Advion Ant Bait Gen under my sink. Next day, hundreds of the little devils are gorging on the gel. A few day later there gone for the season. Fantastic stuff and great on line service.

Still have ants
By Brian on August 29, 2012
I've used 2 of the 4 vials now and still have ants. I've used dry bait and gel bait both now. The ants really go after the gel and die off pretty quick, but 1 week later they are booming again. I have yet to find a product that will actually kill the whole colony as claimed.
ADVION ANT BAIT
By Phil on August 15, 2012
No more ants. This stuff works. They fight each other to get to this gel. Ordered 4 tubes and one tube did the job.

January 2, 2011Martha asked:
QWhat would happen if your pet licked a spot where Advion Ant Bait Gel had been applied?
A 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.

QWhere can you purchase Dupont Advion Ant Bait gel in the Las Vegas area?
AYou cannot purchase the professional products like Advion Ant Bait Gel on our website over the counter anywhere. You can only purchase them online.
June 9, 2011Ken 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.
August 21, 2010Christopher asked:
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
April 22, 2012S 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.
March 22, 2010Mike asked:
QDoes Advion Ant Gel work well on Carpenter Ants?
Does this work well for 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.
AAdvion 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.
May 31, 2010Tim asked:
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.
September 20, 2009Mal asked:
QIs there a shelf-life for Advion Ant Bait Gel?
AThe Advion ant gel has a shelf life of one year after the date of purchase. Once it is applied it will typically remain effective for about 3 months.
May 27, 2010Jon asked:
QDoes Advion Ant Bait Gel tubes need a plunger to dispense? If so is a plunger included with box of 4 tubes?
AYes. Each order of Advion Ant Bait Gel comes with one plunger at no additional cost to dispense the gel from the tubes.
August 27, 2011Melissa from Hanceville,alabama asked:
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.
March 1, 2013Jess from Michigan asked:
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).
May 2, 2012Lisa from Garland, Texas asked:
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.
June 29, 2012Mj from Costa Mesa, Calif asked:
QDoes Advion Ant Bait gel kill thief ants that bite? Should I use gel bait and spray in newborns room?
Is it better to use spray or gel or both? In newborn infants room and do not seem to be anywhere else in house.
AAdvion Ant Bait gel is specifically labeled to help eliminate Thief ants. Be sure to read the product label for complete usage instructions. We would recommend using the ant bait gel in the babies room and keeping sprays outdoors around any door frames, window frames, places where cables, pipes or wires enter through the structure and also around the bottom of the foundation. Since ants typically still go outside to get moisture or food, the spray will help to get rid of them and it will also stop new insects from moving in.
