What type of ants does Gourmet Ant Bait Gel work on?

Have read there are more than 700 different types of ants in America, so don't expect a full listing, but which ants is this most effective on?


All ants need protein and sugar in addition to moisture to survive.  Gourmet ant bait gel is effective on any ant that is looking for a sugar and/or protein.  The ant that most gel baits do not work on is fire ants, because they pretty much are protein feeders only and typically do not trial inside house.  For all other ants though that may be getting into your house, gourmet ant bait gel should be attractive to them as long as they are looking for sugar and/or moisture.
