The Indoor Ant Kit includes all the products you need for professional treatment of most ants commonly found indoors. This kit uses the convenience of bait plate stations and the attractiveness of two unique baits to fill the dietary needs of most household ants. Ants looking for sweets will consume Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel, and ants seeking protein will consume Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait. Both baits have slow acting active ingredients that allow ants to continue their routine activities for some time before succumbing to the effects, so ants have time to transfer active ingredients throughout the colony. Because ants continue to return with food, the colony does not know there is a problem until after the bait has already spread. Results are seen in as little as 6 hours, and colonies are usually gone within a few days (colony size will determine length of treatment).
This kit also contains the non-repellent spray Phantom Aerosol, which works perfectly in conjunction with baiting because of its similar transfer effect. Phantom Aerosol continues to work long after it is dry to help prevent future infestations, too.
As with all of our Pest Control Kits, we recommend using an Integrated Pest Management approach to ant control. It is crucial to practice good sanitation by eliminating competing food and water sources, and to eliminate harborage and entrance points to keep ants from entering the structure.
Indoor Ant Kit contains these products:
1 x Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait
1 x Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel
1 x Bait Plate Stations
1 x Phantom II Aerosol Spray

Before applying any insecticides, it is important to inspect and to prepare the treatment area. Practice good sanitation by eliminating food and water sources that may compete with the baits you are about to apply. Also find ways to seal up and eliminate access points into the structure. These steps will help not only to treat an existing infestation, but also to prevent future problems. Once you have identified the hot spots where ants are entering or trailing indoors, you are ready to use the products in your Indoor Ant Kit.
How to Apply the Indoor Ant Kit
STEP 1 - BAIT - Bait Plate Stations, Advance 375A Granule Bait, Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel
*Handle bait stations with clean, dry hands or wear gloves. Avoid handling bait with bare hands as this may make baits less palatable.
*Your kit includes a set of 12 bait station bases, 12 lids, and 12 glue dots. Pull apart the stacks to separate the components. Each base is a tray with two ridged channels so that you can use two different baits in each bait plate station.
*To apply the Advance 375A Granule Bait, unscrew the top, then either gently tap the granules into a bait plate station tray, or use a dedicated or disposable tool such as a plastic spoon to scoop the bait into each station. Use 0.3 oz.- 1.0 oz. of bait in one side of each bait plate station you plan to set out. (Keep the other channel empty for the gel bait.)
*To apply the Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel, first gently unscrew the solid black tip of the tube you would like to use. Replace this tip with one of the clear, reusable tips included with your kit. Use either a bait gun or the included plastic plunger to gently expel the gel from the tube, similar to using a syringe. (You may need to pull back gently on the plunger to prevent over-application.) Place a spot of bait about the size of a pea in the other side of each bait plate stations you plan to use.
*When you are done applying the Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel, replace the clear plastic tip with the black solid tip to store bait.
*After you have filled your bait plate station trays, snap a lid onto each one by lining up the U-shaped tab and the round tab with the corresponding parts in the tray. Gently press the edges of the lid until it is firmly snapped into the tray, being careful not to tilt the trays, which may cause granule bait to spill. It is not necessary to remove the perforated tab from the bait plate station lids.
*You should place bait in areas where ant activity has been noticed. It is important to avoid purposefully putting the bait in the middle of an ant trail or onto the ants themselves: this will make the ants avoid the bait and make the baiting ineffective. Instead, put the bait near ant activity or next to ant trails. Some examples of places where the bait can be placed are:
- In kitchen cabinets and on counter tops.
- Behind, next to, and under the stove.
- Near sinks or drains
- Around pipes, cords, and cables that come out of the wall.
- Behind and under bathroom fixtures.
- Around the medicine cabinet and vanity.
*You should check the bait placements once a week and replenish as needed until ant activity has ceased. Be sure to continue reapplying bait as long as the ants accept it!
*Store baits in a dry, temperate area, out of direct sunlight. Baits are best used within a year of opening.
*Bait stations may be wiped clean and washed with warm water for reuse later. Do not use fragrant cleaners, as this may make future bait applications unattractive.
STEP 2 - SPRAY - Phantom Aerosol Spray
*Phantom aerosol is a non-repellent ant spray that will have effects similar to those of your ant baits. Although this will take a little more time to start killing the colony, it is a great companion and backup for when ants may not be actively foraging for food.
*Phantom can be used with the wide spray nozzle or with the included white nozzle and black crack and crevice straw. We recommend applying Phantom with the straw to make more detailed applications. If you have trouble inserting the straw, you may need a pair of needle-nosed pliers to force the straw into the nozzle. (Be sure to do this while the tip is off the can.)
*Apply Phantom to cracks and crevices where ants are likely to enter the structure or to trail, such as around window frames and door frames, where pipes and other utilities enter the structure, in corners, under appliances, and in any other spots where ants may have access into the structure.
*Keep other people and pets out of the treatment area until the spray has dried.
*Do not spray Phantom or other insecticides directly on top of bait placements.
*Phantom may be reapplied if needed, but wait at least 4 weeks between applications.

I had tried everything!!!! Didn't know that my ants were protein lovers! I put out the traps 12/31/15 and in no time had a mat of ants continuously recycling carrying and emptying 3 filled trays in about 5 hours. Then it started to get noticeably less and when I woke up the next day none!!!! Three weeks later no more ants at all. This had been an awful 5 weeks before this. simply awesome!!

All bases were covered - all the ants are gone
By Greg in Millbrook, IL on 05/02/2016
A bit pricey, but what's the price of not having tiny ants crawling all over everything? We deployed per the instructions, dry bait, wet bait, and barrier spray. The 2 month aggravation was gone in 7 days.

works as advertised!!!
By Mark in East Lansing, MI on 06/10/2016
We had ants in the house; not a ton of ants but no matter what room you were in, it seems like there was an ant on the floor or wall or countertop, both upstairs and downstairs. I wondered if this product had the range to defeat our ant problem and it didn't disappoint. In 2 weeks time, we are ant free. We've even challenged the kids to try to locate an ant in the house... they can't find one! Great product (I felt OK with the product with my dog around as well... he was uninterested).

After trying box store sprays and remedies, I turned to do my own pest control after seeing the ants in my house colonizing (flying ants). After 3 days of using this kit, the ants are gone. I could literally watch them carry the granules back toward their colony! Just buy this kit before trying anything else, and you will save yourself time, frustration, and money!

I bought this kit last year. At that time, it did not include the Phantom product. It was simply the Maxforce and Advance with the bait plates. This combo is amazingly effective. You simply locate and active trail the ants have created in your home and set a loaded plate near that trail. Within minutes, you will see dozens, if not hundreds, of ants feeding on both products in the plate. 24 hours later, there are no signs of ants anywhere in the home. The best part is that I have treated my house several times over the past year and I still have 50% of both the granules and the gel. This kit is a long-term solution. When I run out, I will certainly buy this kit again. It is far more effective than big box store solutions.

Ants B Gone!
By Rob in Nantucket, MA on 04/11/2016
so far this stuff really works .. heavy ant activity attracted to bait - havent seen any ants at all in days ..
Really took care of my problem
By Bob in Elk Grove Village, IL on 07/15/2016
I tried a lot of things before getting this kit and this really took care of my problem. I had no Idea the infestation was as bad as it was until the bait traps put out with the sweet and protein based baits drew out the hordes of ants that were lurking in my walls and under my floor. Followed the directions and after 3 days saw no more ants. The pin point spray to where they were coming from really helps keep the mess down too.
I don't do review
By Ernie in Virginia on 07/15/2016
I usually never do reviews;however, do-my own-pest-control is amazing. Thus far, they have helped me with a very serous roach problem and now a not so serous ant problem. Every time the stuff works. Awesome results. The roaches never returned after one week of application and its been 3 years later. The indoor ant kit killed all my ants in 24 hours. I'm now using it outside on my poach with amazing results. Use this product for ants. Just watch the videos and your all set.
Finally Winning the War on Indoor Ants
By Jody in Matthews, NC on 07/31/2016
After many years of battling indoor sweet ants with Terro Ant bait, I am now winning the war with the Do My Own Pest Control Indoor Ant Kit! The Combination of Max Force Gel and Advance 375 is the nuclear bomb on these ant colonies!
Just What I've Needed
By Walt in Luray, VA on 08/15/2016
So I tried all sorts of regular home remedies--sprays and bait traps. I even called an exterminator who didn't want the work because of the source of infestation--the top of a chimney in a cathedral ceiling room. I didn't know what to do and a Google search led me to this kit. I figured I'd give it a shot. WOW! Dead ants galore after following the directions. After two weeks the colony is eradicated. I can't say enough about how well this kit works!

QWill the Indoor Ant Kit help keep out small black ants this summer?
I would leave a simple dinner plate in the sink and the next morning black ants. No matter how often I cleaned, they came back. I used that Home Depot Home Defense Product and it did not work.
A We would recommend using Termidor SC outdoors around the perimeter of your home. This will ensure that the ants do not enter your home. This treatment will last for six months outdoors. Termidor SC is strictly an outdoor treatment. Indoors, we would recommend using the Indoor Ant Kit. It comes with a sugar and a protein for ants to consume and take back to the colony. This can be used in places around your kitchen and/or rooms where you have seen activity. This kit also includes Phantom Aerosol, a non-repellent spray for use indoors.

QHow can I get rid of ants in my kitchen and prevent their return?
I need a safe way to treat ant problem since its mainly in my kitchen with dishes and foodstuffs.
A The best treatment for ants inside is our Indoor Ant Kit. This kit contains both a sweet and a protein bait to provide for a colony's changing needs, as well as a non-repellent spray that also lasts for many weeks after treatment. This kit also contains refillable Bait Plate Stations for ease of placement, monitoring, and cleanup. For prevention, a good choice for a perimeter spray would be Temprid SC insecticide. Please see our Ant Pest Guide for more information and tips about treating and preventing ant infestations.
