Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel

Maxforce Carpenter Ant bait gel provides fast control of carpenter ants in 3-5 days. The high moisture content of Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel enhances the bait's attractiveness to target carpenter ants. The attractant in Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait mimics honeydew, which is a main staple of dietary needs for carpenter ants.. The attractiveness is greatest within two weeks of application.

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 destroying the entire colony, including the queen(s).

The Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait mimics honeydew. Honeydew is one of the main staples of 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 will 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 Taurus SC outside around the perimeter of your house, twice a year. Spraying with non-repellents can be less time consuming than ant bait placements.

Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel Application

1. Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait 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 Maxforce Carpenter 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 Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait 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: Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel can be applied 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 Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait 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 Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait 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.

Worked as promised
We have experienced a problem with carpenter ants at our season cabin for the past year. A month ago we placed the Maxforce Gel in the general area where we have been seeing sawdust and into the openings we suspected led to the nest. Long story short, they're dying in great numbers with no signs of additional activity.

It works!
I had had trouble with carpenter ants for over 2 months. House was treated by pest control company, which knocked down the numbers but a few kept reappearing. I then used the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel along exterior wall molding cracks and have not seen one ant since application.

MaxForce Gel
I live on the edge of a wooded area, and have carpenter ant activity every year. I use this gel at the first sign of the ants in May, usually on a tree, or at its base, and it has effectively eliminated the problem. I use it in bait stations around the tree, as well as spreading horizontally across the line of ant movement up and down the tree where I see activity. I recommend highly.
Important to keep this in a cool place until ready for use.

Maxforce Gel Bait is excellent
My sisters home became infested with carpenter ants. I mixed
borax and honey. This killed many of them. I ordered Maxforce
Carpenter ant bail gel.....very good product. The ants come one at a time and are very slow moving after ingesting the bait. They seem to go around in circles and look dizzy And they die shortly after ingesting the gel. I have found many dead ants throughout the house. Am not sure if they could make it back to the colony. However, I did find two different piles of dead ants under the carpet near the wall - so hopefully these 2 areas are colonies with queens dead.


I do not know if the colonies are in the walls.---MAXFORCE
CARPENTER ANT BAIL GEL IS A GREAT PRODUCT. EACH
DAY FEWER ANTS. HOPEFULLY THE QUEENS ARE DEAD

Carpenter Ant Nuclear Device
I had tried everything else including professional exterminators and nothing worked for more than 1 year. Then, I tried Maxforce Carpenter Ant Gel and in three days they were gone and thousands were dead on my floor. I just finished year two carpenter ant free. I ordered a couple of extra tubes just in case a new group moves in.
You won't regret using this if you are plagued by carpenter ants.

This is the best for Carpenter ants.
I found where the Carpenter Ants where getting into the house, put several baits (including Optigard gel, Advance 375 granular) in the area, and went back at midnight. The ants couldn't get enough of the Maxforce Carpenter bait gel. They where gone in 2 days! Wonderful.

Excellent product, like carpenter ant crack, but pricey.
This stuff just works and works and works. Carpenter ants can no resist the stuff.

Once one ant find the product every one else in the colony comes to eat it all up.

The only complaint I have is the price, one tube costs as much as a whole box of four opti-gaurd tubes.

Great product!

Great product
I had a terrible infestation of carpenter ants. I used the gel and the next day when I got home from work there were hundreds of dead and dying ats on my bedroom floor and dresser. I have tried other products but nothing compared to Maxforce.

NO FOOLING...THIS STUFF WORKS!
I have had a ongoing battle with carpenter ants for the last 24 years. They would get really bad during the first warm period in the spring/summer and be everywhere in my home. I had tried everything over the counter including having a contract with Orkin for 2 years and every year like clockwork they would return at the same time. The only relief was to use the spray killer and the pellets spread around the foundation. This would keep them at bay for awhile. This year I found the Max Force gel and figured what do I have to lose...I already have spent hundreds over the years with no relief. I used the gel as instructed and lo and behold, POOF. No more ants. I have waited until now to write this as (October) as I was skeptical and figured they would come back as before. After all the professionals didn't get rid of them. I am pleased to report that they have not returned...NOT ONE! I used the gel only 2 days and have plenty left over. Thanks Do It Yourself Pest Control for an awesome product!!!
