Ant Bait Gets the Job Done
Ant Baits (Ant Poison) are one of the most effective ways to eliminate ant infestations. Ant Baits work well because they allow the ants to carry the bait back to the colony and the queen, where the bait is spread, eventually eliminating the infestation.
Why Ant Bait is the Best Way to Kill Ants
Ant Bait is one of the most effective ways of eliminating ant infestations. There are several things you should know both about ants in general, and ant baits specifically, before attempting any type of eradication. For one, ant bait, especially when used with ant traps, works particularly well because it allows the ants to carry the bait back to the colony and the queen, where the bait is spread and eventually getting rid of the entire infestation. However, not all ant baits are made the same and what works for one species might be left completely alone by another species, defeating the entire purpose.
*While baits do work more slowly than sprays or dusts, the delay also allows baits to work more completely and efficiently towards elimination of the entire ant colony.
The Best Ant Bait Products
On the market today, there are two main types of ant baits that work well:
1. Maxforce Ant Bait
Maxforce ant bait gel attracts Ants that are looking for a sweet meal. It contains a potent insecticide which has the benefit of not acting immediately on the insect, so that it will eat the bait as well as take some back to its nest, thereby spreading the poison around and vastly improving the overall effectiveness of one application of this bait. Maxforce can be applied on virtually any surface where the ants might travel, and provides protection against a wide variety of species including Argentine Ants, Pavement Ants and Honey Ants.
2. Gourmet Ant Bait
Gourmet ant bait is a liquid based sweet ant attractant that contains a powerful pesticide known as Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate, or DOT. This product will not only attract the ants and cause them to eat the pesticide, but it’s slow action will also ensure that they take much of the product back to their nest, sharing it with their queen and fellow workers and leading to a rapid decline in the size of the nest and therefore of the overall infestation.
