This product is featured in our Outdoor Ant Control Kit.
Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait is for use with popular ant bait stations such as Ant Cafe, and the Antopia R2 Ant Bait Station. This liquid ant bait uses a sweet honeydew attractant that will attract all types of ants that will take the bait back to the colony to be fed to the queen and the other ants. The result is ant colony elimination and is another reason why using Gourmet liquid ant bait is a great choice for ant control. Liquid ant bait can be used inside as well as outdoors in proper ant bait stations as listed above.

You'll love the results you see after using Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid with 1% DOT (Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate). Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid is less repellent than other products and is far more effective at eliminating both the workers and queens in active ant colonies. Use Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid indoors with an add-your-own-bait station (like the Ant Café or Ant & Roach Buffet or the Ant Pro Bait Station) to quickly eliminate foragers. Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid is currently the only bait out there that is specially formulated to allow dilution while retaining the same effectiveness, cutting the effective cost by up to 75% and making this product a great economical bait. Ants love Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid because it uses a special insect attractant that mimics honeydew and enhances bait acceptance by a variety of Protein Feeding Ants, Sweet Feeding Ants, and roaches.
How Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid Works:
The sweet honeydew attractant in Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid draws insects to forage. Once ingested, the active ingredient DOT begins a slow attack on the ant’s central nervous system that allows them to return to their nests after consuming the bait to pass along the DOT poisoning to their young and to the queen. When other food sources are removed, ants will continue feeding on Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid until they die.
To Use Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid:
1. Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid may be used at full strength for larger ants (like Carpenter or Fire), or diluted with distilled water or other food grade liquid 1:1 to make bait containing .5% active ingredient for smaller ants (Argentine, White-Footed, and Pharaoh)
2. Bait may be used in “Ant Café”, “Ant & Roach Buffet”, “KM AntPro”, or other similar bait stations.
3. When using bait stations, wash hands thoroughly before handling bait to remove any odors that may be repellent to ants, i.e. tobacco, garlic, strong chemicals/ cleaners etc.
4. Remove as many competing food sources as practical. Vacuum or sweep floors to remove crumbs, etc. Ants are attracted to and will feed on Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid until they die.
5. Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid is designed to work slowly, and sufficient bait should be made available for at least 14 days of continuous feeding.
6. Repeat placement of the bait until satisfactory control has been achieved.
7. Do not use sprays, foggers or any strong chemicals or cleaners near the bait containers or placements. This may contaminate the bait and cause the insects to cease feeding.
Indoor Treatment: Use Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid for the control of ants or German Cockroaches. Place bait station filled half-full with Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid on a horizontal surface near ant activity. Stations filled with Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid may be placed under food cabinets, sinks, stoves, refrigerators, food storage areas, attics, garages, basements, storage areas, closets, etc. Place bait stations on exterior windowsills and in doorways to help prevent entry of ants. Some bait stations may be designed to affixed to a wall, hung on pipes or branches, or placed on a flat surface
Outdoor Treatment: Place bait stations filled half-full with Gourmet Ant Bait Liquid on exterior window-sills and in doorways to help prevent entry.
For especially heavy or stubborn ant infestations, it is often effective to combine Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait with a gel bait such as Gourmet Ant Bait Gel or Maxforce Ant Killer Bait Gel. If you choose to combine two different kinds of baits, do not use more than one per bait station. Simply use a liquid formulation in some stations while placing the gel formulation in others. This gives finicky ants a variety of textures and baits to choose from. Due to the changing demands of the colony, it is common for foraging workers to also change their food sources.

This works quickly and is very effective at getting rid of carpenter ants. The first year we had an invasion of carpenter ants. They took about 2 to 3 weeks to get rid of. The second year in the spring I used the product right away, and the ants were not as many and were gone within a week. This year only saw a couple of ants early Spring, still using the ant bait and haven't seen anymore, and it is almost the 1st of June. Great product. Just make sure that it is in a safe area that pets & children cannot access.

Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait
By Donna on November 7, 2010
It took awhile for the Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait to work. I have tried everything in the supermarket all summer long and nothing worked. I've tried borax, bay leaves, ant traps 3x's, nothing! It was very expensive to buy the bait and containers. But I now have no ant's.

Gets rid of em
By Nancy on June 24, 2010
Started using 3 years ago. Just now using end of 4 bottles. No problem with ants since first year. Just setting bait in traps in case. We are ordering more this 4th year just to be sure they are at bay. Wouldn't use anything else. No problem to animals that we see. Thanks for the great "stuff".

Absolutely Amazing Product
By Frank on July 4, 2011
This is really supposed to be used outside - so you're not inviting the ants in to dinner. However, ants were already inside in large numbers having found an old candy cane under some papers that I didn't know was there. I used a small storage container cap, put a torn piece of a napkin from it to the counter as a bridge so the ants could get in easily; the napkin's capillary action soon brought the fluid over the top edge of the cap. Soon they were lined up - the top of the napkin looked like a bar with dozens of ants bellied up to it side-by-side; the under side had a crowd, too. The number of ants drinking and coming and going was amazing. I put another in a bathroom that was also troubled by ants. The standard long lines of Argentine ants coming and going were soon looking like a well traveled 4 lane highway. Within 8 hours I had no more ants and have not seen one since - 3 weeks now. I also used feeders and this bait outdoors - and they received it well there, too... for days. Now, I just don't see many ants anywhere at all. Used in combination with Maxforce Ant Bait Granular.

So far, it appears to be working well. Ants were attracted to the bait stations right away. I have seen less ants this year as compared to last year without any bait stations. I will give it another month to see if this bait will keep the ants away.
By Sharon on May 12, 2013
I bought two quarts of this last summer to use with the ant bait stations and in less than a week, the tiny ants that had invated my house were gone. I had tried numerous other products that called for baiting at the trouble spot and that simply attracted more inside my home. This year, I didn't wait to see them and began loading addtional stations in early spring. I got the case because I did not want to run out mid-summer and I now have 8 bait stations around my home. No ants are to be found. It was an easy, safe way to get rid of a pesky problem. I normally won't go out of my way to kill insects, but when they invade my home, I want them gone. Best of all, I don't have to worry about harming other animals, including my cats.
Good liquid bait
By Jesse on February 11, 2013
Used in bait stations around the perimeter of my home to help eliminate an ant problem I've had problems with. Used a granular bait & this to appeal to sweet feeding ants. Worked well in the situation i used it in.
By Lynne on July 26, 2012
The ant bait is doing the trick. I like the product so far, it tends to not dry out as fast as the liquid ones I have purchased before and way more for the money. Thank you
By Tony on July 12, 2012
I haven't seen any ants since I did two applications of Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait. So it is either a co-incidence or it works.

This product really works. Whenever the carpenter ants show up this product quickly eliminates them.
By Denny on May 15, 2012
So far, after 3 weeks, no ants in the house. Since that is my goal, I have to give the product 5 Stars. There also seem to be fewer ants outside.
Best ant product
By Michael on May 7, 2012
My house had carpenter ants in every room. This product with the green mushroom dispensers did the trick. Spraying with other products only stopped them for a short time. It took a few weeks but when the ants take this product back to the hidden colony, the queen is killed and all the ants are dead. Carpenter ants are horrible and very difficult to get rid of. I ordered one more just now as a precaution! I just ordered another Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait as a precaution.

i put it out and really have not seen any difference pretty dissapointed
best ant control in the world
By Beverly on April 13, 2012
I live in a mature oak forest with lots of downed wood. One year I had a lot of big black carpenter ants on the decks and in my house. I called regular bug control people and they wanted me to go on a yearly contract of inside and outside spray programs saying I would always have trouble with ants..I did some research and came across this product and the little green space ship outdoor baits. I talked to the developer of the system and I said how will I know this works and he said you won't see any more ants. This was like 5 years ago and my ant situation is under control. Last year..I came home to find a black circle of ants on my board and batton pine siding..about a yard in diameter half way up the 1 1/2 story home. They must have been from the woods and looking for a new nest.. When they saw me looking at them they went under the siding..I freaked!! this was early spring and I had not put out my green bait stations yet..I got control of myself and put the stations out and after that..some ants must have found the stations because I never saw them again..inside or outside the home, the queen must have gotten her dose.. This stuff is working for me and its the only way to control those little beasties! thank you gourmet liquid ant bait.

QWhere should I place the Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait in my home?
I was wondering how much to use, and what I should put it in without buying stations. I have a 900 sq ft. home with a full basement that I am finishing. One floor with three bedrooms, a small kitchen, a living room and a bathroom. Where should I place the bait? Thank you
A According to the products label, Gourmet Ant Bait can be used to make small, pea sized placements and/ or long thin lines in areas where ants are a problem. Place the bait on a horizontal surface near ant activity. Place bait under food cabinets, sinks, stoves, refrigerators, food storage areas, attics, garages, basements, storage areas, closets, etc. Place on exterior windowsills and in doorways to help prevent entry of ants. You can put on pieces of paper or on jar lids to keep the bait off of surfaces.

QI'm using your KM Ant Pro Bait Stations. How much liquid ant bait should I order for each station?
AEach KM Ant Pro Station can hold up to 19oz of liquid ant bait but it is recommended to only fill up to 16 oz at a time. The recommended bait for the KM Ant Pro Station is the Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait which is 32 oz of bait per container. So 1 bottle would be enough to fill 2 KM Ant Pro Stations. However, if you have a lot of ant activity then you may need to refill it sooner than you expect. We do have an Outdoor Ant Kit which comes with the stations and the bait at a discounted price.

QWhat is the shelf life of the Gourmet liquid ant bait.
I want to buy in bulk to eventually save money. But I am concerned that the product may lose potency after 3 or 4 years. I want to know how many years this product be stored before it expires.
AThe manufacturer states that since it is a food bait, it should only be expected to remain effective on the shelf for a period of 2 years at the most. You should always store in a cool dry place if possible and make sure the lid is on and the bottle is out of direct sunlight.
