Do I just put a pea size dot of Intice Smart Ant Gel on the floor or area where there is ant activity?

Do I need any supplemental items?

Answer:

Yes, you will apply small, pea-sized bait placements of Intice Smart Ant Gel where ants congregate or are seen entering the building. Bait near or in cracks, crevices or void spaces around windows, door jams and sills, eaves, patios, garages, under stairwells, and crawl spaces.  The need for supplemental products would be based on the type of ants you are treating and their nutritional needs.  Ants may prefer protein based baits such as Maxforce Granular Insect bait or Mother Earth Scatter Bait over sweet baits like the Intice Smart Ant Gel depending on the life cycle of the colony. You can try the Peanut Butter and Honey test to see if there is a bait preference. We recommend you offer both sweet bait and protein bait at the same time to ensure bait acceptance.
