Advion Ant Gel Bait FAQs...
Q. Is Advion Ant Gel Bait the Best Ant Bait?
Advion Ant Gel Bait is highly effective against a broad spectrum of commonly encountered ant species, and ranks at the top of Pest Control Everything's Top 5 Ant Gel Baits of 2019. If you are unsure which species of ant you may be dealing with and are looking for an easy-to-apply ant bait product with a high likelihood of success, Advion Ant Gel Bait is an excellent option. Ultimately the BEST ant bait product for any given situation will depend upon the species of ant and other variable conditions. Advion may not be the best ant bait product for all ant species in all situations.
Q. Should Advion Ant Gel Bait Be Applied Indoors or Outdoors?
As with most ant bait applications, the location of the placements will be a critical part of the success or failure of the ant baiting program. Advion Ant Gel Bait can be applied either indoors or outdoors, but not necessarily with equal effectiveness. Ideally, Advion should best be applied in areas in direct proximity to ant harborage areas / nesting sites or along foraging trails where the bait can be protected from elements such as sunlight, wind, rain, heat, cold, cleaners, or other conditions that may impact bait longevity and acceptance. When ants are being noticed inside a structure, ideal bait placements would include interior or exterior applications as close to the ant point of entry as possible.
Q. Should I Spray Ants With Raid After Applying Advion Ant Gel Bait?
No. In general, after making ant bait applications of any kind, it is typically best not to spray pesticides of any type in proximity to bait placements. Not only can most ant gel baits become easily contaminated, spraying can cause foraging ants to become alarmed and discontinue feeding for days at a time. Spraying following a bait application is likely to render the ant baiting program either minimally useful or altogether useless.
Q. How Long Should it Take Advion to Get Rid of All The Ants?
How long it takes to entirely wipe out the ant infestation depends on many factors, including the ant species, location and extent of infestation, and a combination of contributing factors. What is important to remember is that Advion Ant Gel Bait, like many ant baits, is designed to work relatively slowly so that toxic levels of the active ingredient can be passed to other members of the ant colony. If ants died immediately upon ingestion, this critical transfer process could not take place. So you should expect to see ants for several days following your initial ant bait application. With many ant species, there may be an increase in ant activity observed over the first 1-3 days, followed by a gradual decline in activity over the next 7-10 days. In many situations, a good time to re-assess the situation is 10-14 days after the initial bait application.
Q. Can Advion Ant Gel Bait Be Applied Without the Bait Gun Applicator Shown in the Video?
Yes. Although bait gun applicators can provide many advantages including more efficient gel bait placements, Advion Ant Gel Bait syringes comes with an easy-to-use plunger that can be used instead of a bait gun applicator.
Q. Is Advion Ant Gel Bait Toxic?
All pesticides, by definition, have a certainly level of toxicity, and Advion Ant Gel Bait is no different. Care should be used as with all pesticides to minimize exposure to people, pets, and non-target organisms before, during, and after application. That said, risk of exposure to ant gel baits such as Advion Ant Gel Bait is comparatively minimal.
Q. Will Advion Ant Gel Bait Get Rid of Other Insects?
No. Perhaps one of the downsides of ant gel baits is that they are very specifically formulated for the control of ants. If you are having issues with, or want protection from, other types of insects, additional pest control treatment measures may be advisable.
