Q&A Home

Penny from Richmond , Va writes,

Can I place ant bait in my cabinets with my box and can foods?

I have three children and they are always in the cabinets getting food to eat. Is the ant bait poisonous or should I leave it there? The bait was placed in the back of the cabinet on the shelf.


Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel can be applied into the cabinets to the cracks and crevices. It should be re-applied once every two weeks (clean up old bait and apply new). It will not harm the food that is in containers or boxes or if your children do not touch the areas that have been treated. The bait gel only has enough poison to harm the targeted insect.
