After using Optigard Ant Bait Gel the ants were decreasing but now on day five they have increased!!...

Using your Optigard gel only, ants are around sink. How often should I rebait the area? When gel dries is it still effective?


It is important to keep the Optigard Ant Bait Gel out for as long as you see ant activity. Ant colonies can be very large and depending on the species it can take a few weeks to completely eliminate the whole colony. While the gel is still effective after it has dried, some ants may not accept it as readily as moist gel.
