Erin from Bakersfield, Ca writes,
Used Maxforce, ants now walking AROUND bait stations. Now what?
They look like Argentine ants, your typical small brown trailing ants. I put the newly filled bait stations in the trails as directed. The ants checked them out, took a few of the bait pieces, then simply walked over, then around the stations. Am I stuck with four pounds of this stuff that they won't eat? I need help.
Ants are very fickle. It may be that they are just not foraging right now. To test if they are, place a potato chip in the ant trail to see if they take it. Maxforce Complete granular bait is specifically designed for Argentine ants among many other pest.
