Walt Cline - Pest Control Professional Pro Tip: "Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel is a great all purpose ant bait. Most of our customers use it for carpenter ants. Put the bait where the ants are looking for food. In most cases this is outside. For carpenter ants you need to stay up late and have a good flashlight. Pay particular attention to the edges, window sills, and corners of your house."

How does Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel Work?

Maxforce Carpenter Ant bait gel with Fipronil uses foraging worker carpenter ants to take it back to hidden, inaccessible nests.  This formula is a delayed-action kill. The workers feed on it and share the insecticide with the nest, thus killing the entire colony, including the queen(s).

The Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait mimics honeydew. Honeydew is one of the main staples in a carpenter ant diet. At various times during the year, the carpenter ants will prefer a food containing only protein such as, Advance 375 A Granular Bait.  We also carry both products in a kit called, Carpenter ant bait kit that has both the Advance 375 A and the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Gel.

When both Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait and Advance 375 A are applied together as a treatment plan, they would provide a complete selection for baiting carpenter ants.

Another alternative for Carpenter Ant control is using a non-repellent insecticide, like Taurus SC. You would spray this outside around the perimeter of your house, twice a year. Spraying with non-repellents can be less time consuming than bait placements.

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.
