Q&A Home

Dan writes,

Are either of the products in the carpenter ant bait #1 harmful to humans?

My wife has asthma. Odors make it worse. I understand that Advance is used out of doors, so we are less concerned about that product. Are there gases released from the Max Force Product (I think used indoors) that we should be concerned about? I did not see an MSDS for either product.


The Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel is very useful in situations where spray applications would not be acceptable because you are not putting a chemical into the air. But, because every person is a bit different and could possibly be sensitive to different substances, we always recommend checking with a physician in cases where severe health issues exist. Both the Advance Carpenter Ant Granule and the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel products labels and MSDS can be found on our website. These documaents can be found on the individual product pages (beneath the product picture) and on the Carpenter Ant Bait Kit #1 page (scroll down to the product information).
