Ants, especially sweet feeder ants
Advion Ant Gel Package:
Each carton contains 4 x 1.06 oz (30 Gram) non-refillable syringes. The gel is translucent, non-staining, and doesn't have an odor.
The Advion Ant Gel a is an attractive gel that many ants find more tasty than real food. The active ingredient within this ant gel is an insecticide called Indoxacarb. Upon ingesting, specific enzymes within the ant turn on the active ingredient causing it to be deadly. This bio-activation process is not as efficient within non-target pests. Once indoxacarb is "turned on" through enzymatic activity within the ant, it starts blocking the sodium channels in the insects nervous system. However, it doesn't kill the ant immediately, it allows the ant to return to its nest and contaminate other ants, resulting in the demise of a significant amount of the population. While you might not see ant carcasses around your home, that does not mean the product isn't working. Once the ant has ingested the bait, it will return to its nest and help spread the active ingredient to other ants.
Gear Needed : Wear disposable gloves when handling the syringes and wash hands with soap and water once finished using the product.Where can the gel be used?
These can be used both indoors and outdoors. It's important to assess where the ants are located and how they are entering the property. Placement of the gel should be to active foraging trails, nest sites, or areas known to be active.
The recommended label amount to apply is .1 o 1.0 grams of ant gel to a 1/4" diameter spot. You can even use a line of gel as well. It doesn't matter how many are used in these active areas as long as it doesn't disrupt their typical patterns. Use the line or spot gel figure to reference how large the lines or dots of gel can be.
Typical indoor applications include cracks and crevices, along walls or floors, behind equipment or appliances, under tables, framing of tables or furniture, around sinks, or near garbage collection.
Once treated check often to see if its been consumed or there is a need for re-application.
It is important to inspect areas around the home or structure where ants might be able to enter. If identified use caulking or other measures to seal the structure. When placing the gel outdoors, a pea size spot of gel can be placed at entry sites along windows, doors, and between construction elements *See the label for a full list of where you can use the ant gel. Please refer to the dot and line size figure to make sure you are using the appropriate amount of gel.
The active ingredient within the arena is good for up to 3 months; however, when using outdoors extreme elements can effect efficacy. If the product gets extremely warm or comes in contact with lots of water, it can decrease the overall effectiveness.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place inaccessible to children or pets.
Is this safe for children and pets to be around ? Yes, if used and placed properly. Do not place gel near or around food. Please refer to the label when using in areas near or around where food is prepared or handled.
