Complete Ant Bait Kit #1


Walt Cline - Pest Control Professional Pro Tip: "Optigard Ant Gel is the best ant bait get for the sugar cycles of ants. Place the Optigard Ant Bait Gel and the Maxforce Complete Insect Bait in both sides of the bait plate stations. You can also use both baits without the bait plate stations. Simply squeeze out the Optigard on any surface. It won't stain or discolor surface areas. Sprinkle the Maxforce Complete granules near the Optigard. Having both types of baits out, allow the ants to choose a sugar based bait (Optigard) or a protein-based bait (Maxforce Complete.)"

Excellent!
I had black carpenter ants coming into my house. I purchased several ant bait traps at Home Depot and placed them around the sink, countertops, trash can, etc. May as well have put down sugar and spice and everything nice. I tracked the ants back to their entry point and placed a little dab of Complete Ant Bait Kit #1 products near it. Ants were gone in less than 2 days and haven't seen any come back. I figure this was cheaper than a pest control service call plus I only used a tiny portion of the ant bait kit so I have plenty left for years to come. I read all the reviews on this site, purchased the Bait Kit and never looked back...completely satisfied. This review is only for black carpenter ants.

I would definitely recommend this product.
I had a lot of little black ants surrounding the house and this took care of them with one application. I used the sugar gel and I have never seen ants swarm to anything in this way. They feasted on the bait right after I put it out. The next day they were scattered all over instead of being in lines, then they died.

Effective - Finally
Was getting discouraged like so many other products I've tried, but after 3 week, finally no ants left in kitchen. Still a few showing in bathroom. Ants ignored the granules but apparently the liquid got them. Didn't find them to "go crazy" over liquid, like some reported, but apparently it worked and am happy to finally conquer the problem.

Covers all bases
Didn't know whether the ants were in their sugar or protein cycle so got this kit. Interestingly enough the ants started on the sugar gel, leaving the granules untouched. Then a few days later they started on the granules and left the sugar gel alone.

Bait worked great! Plenty of it too.
Used talstar to create a barrier around the house twice in 4 or 6 weeks. No impact on the ant population in the house. Sprayed talstar around interior baseboard in key locations. Small impact on ants.

I did notice a different product recommended for spraying along with bait. Well I just bought this bait kit and it solved our ant problem in a few days. The ants literally swarmed on one of the bait stations. Then they were gone! There is a bunch of bait included in the kit. Will rinse bait stations clean and save for next invasion. Only used half a syringe of the sweet bait and barely any of the protein bait. Not sure about shelf life but I suspect it will spoil long before I run out.

Great product
I had an infestation of the tiny red ants that my mother called "grease ants". I put both baits in two of the bait stations and once the "scouts" found them, there was a steady stream of ants feeding on the Optiguard Gel. One day later ... no ants, and they have not returned. A couple of weeks later, I had them at a different entrance to the kitchen, so I presume this was a different colony. I put the Optiguard Gel only out and got the same result -- one day later, no ants. Most effective product I have ever used.

Great Product - Well worth the money
I have tried baits, sprays and professional services but nothing works like the Complete Ant Bait Kit #1. The majority of ordorous ants disappeared in the first 24 hours. I put the traps on the kitchen counter and the ants swarmed around the traps. The next morning I was expecting to see some dead ants but there were none. I guess the ants took the bait to their colony during the night and died later. I did see an occasional ant for 2 weeks but it's been 7 days since I've seen any ants. I will leave traps in place for a little longer just to be on the safe side. There is also a lot of the bait left for future use if I need it. Thanks for a great product.

UPDATE - ONE MORE WEEK
Hello again! I wrote my last review on 2/6/ - posted on 2/7/17, and today's date is 2/13/17 at 5 p.m., Pacific. So I have been using Optigard for almost 2 full weeks. I saw my last LIVE ant last night at 6 p.m. That is not to say they are all dead, but it is the longest period of time since I began treating without seeing a live one. This last bunch was almost scary; they were the biggest bunch I have ever seen - both in size and in number. There were over 50-60 at any given time, with some coming or going constantly for 3 days, so I'm thinking not only were they from a huge colony, but also one of longstanding due to their size. Or maybe they were "senior" members of a colony who had to go themselves when everyone else "croaked" as my son says.

Anyway, wanted to update in case any of you have as serious an infestation as I do. I intend to be vigilant checking all stations & placement area 2x day and keep that up for another week in case the teeny babies show up. When I don't see any for 8 days I'll stop - my research said ants can leave the nest as early as a week - but that it was really rare. Apparently the queen has been documented going as long as 3 weeks without food or water. Look it up - Wiki - if you don't believe me. Because of my studies, I'm not quitting til then. I also wanted to tell you that I did not use bait stations in all areas. As a matter of fact, I actually killed more where there weren't stations. However, that was where they were the most prevalent, which was in the tub of both baths and a window ledge of one bath. Because of narrow ledge I was unable to use stations so I just baited directly onto the tub ledge and the base of tub at floor, as well as some open crevices in those rooms. We took showers in the slightly less busy one then I immediately dred the area thoroughly and rebaited. Within an hour they were back. I'll report back after the 8 days are up. Patience, truly, is a virtue and is what"s needed if your situation is serious. Good luck!

First, KNOW YOUR ENEMY for best results!
This review is for Ant Bait Kit #1, which I'm using to absolutely annihilate the ODOROUS HOUSE ANTS that have plagued me for 6+ years. You think you have an ant problem? Here's my story: We moved into our brand new Manufactured Home 12 years ago, when our son was 6 yrs old. There were still several unsold lots, so a lot of empty space around our place. The lots were filled with sand, so our son & neighbor boys played in the sand, creating Hot Wheel highways, Sand Castles and entire cities. One day a neighbor mom came to get her son & as we walked to get the boys she pointed to the empty lot adjoining our property and said "I can't believe they still havent gotten rid of that ant hill. She was pointing at a 3-1/2 foot tower of sand - i am NOT exaggerating - i am 5'1" & that "hill" came up to my chest just under my armpits. After a long, long fight with community grounds/pool maintenance/management acknowledged that it WAS an ant hill & their responsibility to get rid of it. Finally, 3 years later exterminators & city employees showed up with a lot of equipment to get rid of it & the following late Winter our battle began. Every Fall as weather got cool & rainy I battled OH ants. Every one here complains about their visitations sooner or later. I'm sure when one place treats the ants just take up residence nearby.
1st exterminators I hired had to come out several times. Eventually I kept them at bay myself w/Terro &/or diatomaceous earth.

Then in October, 2015, after a 12-hour day we entered the mud/laundry room & were hit with water which reached my calves. Faulty washing machine switch - later recalled. We did not actually live in the house again until all restoration was completed this last Thanksgiving, 2016. But guess who had taken up residence in between the walls?!? Fired 2nd exterminator because we couldn't go 2 weeks without seeing more.

I read that private parties can buy the stuff exterminators use & here I am. The info on pests DYIPC gives is great, but if you are serious about wiping them out permanently I highly recommend you educate yourself further. Example: OH ants usually have AT LEAST 2 queens per nest & they have been documented living 8 + years! And they form multiple "satellite" colonies; some males are larger & winged & get together with another queen to start another colony. Apparently queen-wanna-be's are abundent. However, no matter where they currently live, they all consider themselves to be the same"family" so they spread the word when they find food. So I've got nests behind both bathrooms, near the hot water heater in laundry room, & in 2 diff places in kitchen. There is also a large colony my son spotted as they marched from the garage to the corner of the house where the den is. He saw them because they had triple trails - 3 rows marching like soldiers side by side!!! But man, this stuff works! Twice a day I use a 1" paintbrush like a broom to get rid of several dozen dead ants, put out fresh bait and wait for the next group to show up. There are about 13 "bait stations" throughout my house now. A few places where the ants died 5 or 6 days ago now have very teeny tiny baby ants taking their place foraging for food. So it's only a matter of a day or so when those colonies will be wiped out.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I almost feel sorry for them. They L-O-V-E this sweet bait. They feed for a long time, you can see their bodies engorged with it. They reluctantly head back to the nests (yay!) and then come back for more. Some leave a second time even, but A LOT just stay and feed until they die. They are like addicts with this stuff. You can tell when it hits them because they actually get lighter in color and their back half kind of gets dragged along by the front legs and they move really slow then they just drop. They must smell it or something because if I put some down on a new spot with 5-10 mins, here come a few, then more, then dozens of them. And they don't get spooked like they usually do when disturbed. A few kinda run around a bit but head right back to eat more. Be patient, consistent, learn all you can about your particular invading ant, and be vigilant - don't stop even if you don't see any for a few days. That's what it takes if you really don't want to deal with them again - better to take a month to bait now & be done with them instead of 3 days here, a week there, if you dont make sure you kill ALL the queens you'll be doing this again in the Spring. Not me! My now 19-year-old son, read the instructions and has been my "hunting buddy". 13 years fighting these ants - it's scary how tenacious insects are. Good luck getting those pesky critters.

Fantastic product. Works great
This product was amazing. We had little "ghost ants" all over. It came to the point of being an infestation. We tried every home remedy,trap and spray from the store. As a last resort before calling a pest company we tried this and the ants were gone within 24 hours. It was an amazing thing

Got rid of the ants!
I ordered this after hardware store bait failed completely on the millimeter-sized ants that plagued my kitchen. I live in a condo so trenching or outside application was not really an option. The ants liked the jell and ignored the dry bait...but you just never know with ants--so I was glad I had both. As it promised on the label, the ants were gone in a couple days. I didn't notice beforehand that I had two colonies, one entering from either side of the kitchen. So it took two applications. It was great fun watching dozens of them chow down hungrily on the bait... The package quantity is 20x what I needed, but the cost was still only a fraction of even the first step with a professional. And this store is the place to buy it--they are really helpful. (No, they didn't pay me)

Great product
I have been using the Maxforce and the little sealed ant traps for years and they worked good for the type of ant we had. Lately we started seeing those little tiny fast ants. Bought this bait station combo kit and put the bait stations under the house, on top of the foundation, where the ants appeared. It knocked them out in a day. Fantastic product for the type of ant we were getting. Recommend.

Knights on White Horses!!
Ant problems in my rental properties and my personal home. I had hired a "professional service" for my personal home and tried to tackle the problem myself with my rentals. In the rental the ants invaded mostly their bathrooms and kitchen and always at the most inconvenient times. Personal home - nightmare when I found them in the bed with our elderly dementia parent on the Thanksgiving eve. I called and fired the service. FINALLY, I found DIY Pest Control!! I learned not to disturb their tracking - I was making mega nests when I sprayed them and the stuff I was spraying was useless anyway. The day I started this treatment - visualize with me if you will: I walked outside and saw not one, two or even three rows of ants, but FOUR rows of ants completely circling the foundation of the house. It was actually an amazing thing if you are into ants (with I am NOT). It looked like a crowded four-lane interstate highway. I strategically put each of the the sugar and protein all along the highway tracking lines, careful not to disturb them. I put them each about 20 feet apart all around the entire perimeter of the house. And prayed. ;-)
The next morning, I came back and I am not making this up - I promise - there were ZERO ants. None. Nada. Did they all die all at once? Did they pack up and move all together? Just blew me away. And as I've monitored over the past couple of weeks, I'll see a few random ants, even a few trying to start the highway tracking thing - I'll bring the stuff back the next morning to retreat and that is even gone. I guess they are finding what I put out previously? I'll retreat once a month anyway.

Only thing that has worked for us!
After trying countless ant bait traps, sprays, etc, I found a link to this on a forum and it has literally saved my sanity. It is fascinating to watch the ants mesmerized by this product, they walk over their dead just to get to it and withing 2 days, they are ALL DEAD. The ones inside the house seem to like the sugar bait while the ones outside like the protein bait. A++++

DeadAnts, DeadAnts, DeadAnts-DeadAnts-DeadAnts
This kit worked on home invader (I think) pavement ants when multiple ant baits, homemade borax-sugar baits, etc., did not over the course of last summer/fall.

Within a week of placing bait stations the ants disappeared from my kitchen. Five star effectiveness, deducting a half star overall for lack of instructions / dosage included with the kit, and difficulty of loading granules into the baits (they are sticky or static-y and wind up in both sides) . Worked around that by loading two stations, one with the gel, and one with granules.

Highly recommended.

Best I have ever used
I used to get single bait traps from the pest control company that services my business, but he was on vacation so I purchased this kit.

This kit works even better. It takes a few minutes to make up your own bait stations and you have to be careful moving them because the granules will spill out if your not careful, but those extra steps are well worth it. Don't even waste your time on the ones you can get at the hardware store.

I have used these several times in the last 6 months and have seen the ants sometimes eating one bait and almost ignoring the other. Each time they quickly attract the ants and it becomes an ant highway while they are all feeding.

Then the whole colony simply disappears.

This kit is huge, will most likely make over a hundred bait stations or more. I told all my neighbors I got plenty to share.

They Loved It
The ants were immediately attracted to the bait. They would eventually take the granules back to the colony. The were immediately attracted to the gel also. It didn't take long to see dead ants. To be honest, activity started to pick up as more ants died. It seem like that they started to die in the colony so they started moving the eggs. I can't say whether the bait alone did the trick because I also used some spray purchased from this site in places where I couldn't put the bait. To sum it up, I can definitely say that the bait started the process and the spray sealed the deal - like immediately. Within a couple of days of spray, they were all gone.

Products Worked Well
The Complete Ant Bait Kit was effective in getting rid of most of the ants our home. The granules worked well outside along the foundation; the gel worked well at a couple entry places inside. The two treatments slowed the ant traffic down tremendously, but we will probably need to reapply granules outside periodically to keep the ants away, as they seem to be at neighboring homes as well.

Live in a tropical area with lots of ants of all sizes. I have been using this product with total success. Recently I had sugar ants and nothing else worked. When I applied optigard the ants were gone. I use optigard around the windows on the outside and it works well as preventive maintenance.

Very professional product
Sprinkled the Advance 375A on trails and at the base of a tree that
was invested with Carpenter Ants. Also applied Optigard in parts
of the tree base. Some returning foraging ants picked up the 375A
and you could see them bringing it back to the colony. The Optigard
they couldn't stay away from and went crazy feeding on it. This morning I went out and checked the tree. At the base there must have been a thousand ants half of them dead half still churning..including about 8 big ones with wings...they didn't look
happy.

Everything I needed
I had the small ants in my kitchen. I've never seen them swarm to something like they did this bait, not even syrup. Only took a couple of days and they've been gone since. The gel in the optigard was a little inconsistent (parts were hard others were liquid) and i would give it four stars because of that but it didn't seem to have a negative affect on how it worked.
