How do I know if the Advance Ant Granules are working?
We applied Advance granule three days ago and the first day ants just pick them up and carry back to the nest like crazy. But since yesterday they seem to have totally lost interest in it. They crawl right past the granules without picking them up. We did see some dead ants but there seem to be more ants coming out. Is it not working? Why does it lose its appeal?
Seeing the dead ants means that the Advance Carpenter Ant granules are doing their job. Ants however change their nutritional needs frequently This means that one day they may only forage for proteins, like the granules you put out and another day they may forage for carbohydrates like bait gels or liquids. We recommend leaving the granules in place and allow the ants to continue their natural foraging. You may also consider using an ant bait gel like the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel in combination with the Advance Granules.
