Optigard Ant Bait Gel is a powerful, slow acting non-repellent. The active ingredient, thiamethoxam, knocks out workers, brood, and queens. Optigard is for indoor and outdoor control of structure-invading ants; excluding fire, harvester, and Pharaoh ants. Optigard Ant Bait Gel doesn't have the unsightly yellowish-brown color or the runny inconsistency of other baits.
|Pro Tips||Remember when using gel baits such as Optigard Ant Bait Gel, that ants can only get to the edge of the bait placement. Thin lines of bait work better than big circles. If the bait dries out, put new bait in its place or add some water to it and mix it with a tooth pick.|
OptigardAnt Bait Gel offers unparalleled control of a broad spectrum of ants, including Argentine, carpenter, ghost, and other nuisance ant species, by ingestion and transfer of the bait, providing efficacy against the entire colony, not just the workers.

Bait Placement:The Optigard Ant Bait Gel comes with a syringe applicator. Simply place this ant bait gel in areas where the ants are active. Typical areas include cracks and crevices, under and behind appliances, under sinks, under and behind stoves, around pipes, and water heaters. Other areas include window frames and basebords. Continue to place bait in areas where the ants are actively foraging or trailing.
Do not place Optigard on freshly applied insecticide, unless it is a non repellent inseciticide such as Alpine, Dominion 2L Taurus or Phantom.
Indoors: After inspection of ant activity, place Optigard in those areas. Look for activity at points of entry and high moisture areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms. Place multiple bait placements in areas of high activity. Do not place bait in areas that are routinely washed, as washing will remove or dilute bait. Do not treat food preparation surfaces. During followup visits inspect placements and reapply as needed.
Outdoors:After inspection of ant activity, place Optigard near ant trails and areas of suspected ant activity. Look for activity near entry points and areas of moisture, such as soffits, eaves, pipes, weep holes and eaves. You may use bait stations with Optigard.
