Jess from Michigan writes,

When is the best time to apply Advion Ant Bait Gel?

Should this be applied at night when less human traffic is in the house or in the morning when away at work? I have a 2 year old daughter and wife who would freak out seeing a bunch of ants all swarming to the gel. Also how long of a time period should we see ants flock to the gel and then dissipate? Any help would be greatly appreciated.


You should place the gel directly into cracks and crevices near the areas where you are seeing activity so the children will not have access to the gel and it will stop the ants from being as visible to your wife and kids. Some ant species are more active during the day and some are more active at night but the time of day you place the gel will not matter. They will find it eventually. You should start see the number of ants dwindle within a week or so (some ant species have 100's of ants in the colony while others have millions so we cannot tell you for sure how long it will take to get rid of them for good).
