Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel Application:
1. Apply gel in spots in cracks and crevices. For best results, place many spots or dabs of gel where you see ants foraging and entering structures. Apply the ant bait gel up to 1 gram per spot. Apply in small amounts between different elements of construction, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs, and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors, and windows, cabinets, sinks, stoves, and other places where ants may enter. During follow-up visits inspect bait placements and reapply when necessary.
2. Do not apply gel to areas that have been recently sprayed with insecticide and do not spray insecticide over gel as this may cause the bait to become repellent. Do not apply gel to areas that are routinely washed, such as counter tops, as gel will be removed or diluted and spread onto the surface.
3. Place bait as follows: Gel can be placed in cracks, crevices, and corners such as under and behind kitchen appliances, along baseboards, under sinks, in pantry, around pipes and water heater, window and door frames, and in the garage attic, or crawl space.
FOR INDOOR USE:
Visually inspect for activity and place gel in areas where you see activity. Likely locations for activity are areas where ants enter the building structure and areas with potential water damage including: wall voids, cracks and crevices in kitchen, bathroom, under sink, window sills, screen vents, garage, attic, and crawl spaces. Do not place bait in locations that are routinely or frequently washed, as the bait will be removed by washing. Do not treat food preparation surfaces. Do not use this product in or on electrical equipment where a possibility of shock hazard exists.
FOR OUTDOOR USE: Place gel outdoors into, on, or adjacent to structures where you see activity, nest to ant trails, and suspected
areas of activity. Likely locations for activity are points of entry
into structure and areas with potential water damage including: eaves, soffits, weep holes, where wires and pipes enter structure, trees, stumps, roots, wood decks, fences, planter boxes, wood piles, landscaping, and railroad ties. Exposure to extreme heat or cold, direct sunlight, and water may reduce effectiveness.
Inspect placements and reapply as needed. The gel will remain attractive to ants for up to two weeks.
Reapply in same area if bait is gone or in a different location if no ant activity is evident. Pest population reduction will be apparent within a week.
