Is Advion ant bait gel grease, oil or protein based?

Different species of ants are attracted to different foods at different times. Can you tell me what the base for Advion is?


Advion Ant Bait Gel is a carbohydrate based gel. Ant feeding cycles can usually be broken into two catergories, carbohydrate (sweet or sugar) feeding ants or protein (meat, grease, oil) feeding ants. In general liquid and gel ant baits are sweet or carbohydrate based. Granule and solid baits (ant bait stations) are usually protein based baits. We have put together a complete ant bait kit that includes both types of baits plus 12 ant bait stations to make ant baiting simple.
