Try the sugar gel types, they are usually more effective, not because they are more toxic but just a more attractive bait.

If you can't find the thing that is attracting them then try to find the trail as close to the source i.e start of ant trail as possible, and place something / bait that will attract them. Example a bowl of sweetened water. The bowl makes it easier to clear away and 'promotes' drowning of ants.
This will cut off the trail and make them gather nearer to their source. Then when the bait is full and they are having their mass orgy, just spray insecticide.

Hope this helps.

Key is to kill the queen, hence the use of bait otherwise its endless, even then when one specie is killed usually replaced by another type and colony.

i am one that bought the sugar gel type ant baits all the way from ebay america.

they works wonders as the ants will always be attracted to it.

but, it will only last a few weeks, then you will see the ants coming back, its like they spawn again.

i will use the gel again, and the cycle keeps repeating.

gave up, these ants will never disappear, like energizer, they keep spawning and spawning.
piss, i mean 'peace' to all

Either learn to live with them or get used to the exterminating cycle (they always come back). tongue.gif

I have gotten used to the cycle. Sometimes your home will be ant free for up to 2 months. But at times they come back as fast as 2 days.
“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed.” - Ayn Rand

Curious what is the active ingredient?



i copy and paste here for you,

Broadspectrum: controls all key Sweet Feeders, PLUS additional species

High attractant, homogenous formulation
Impacts all life stages for total colony control
DuPont™ Advion® ant gel bait is a new, superior ant bait from DuPont Professional Products. It targets most pest species of ants, including all key sweet feeders plus additional ant species.

By combining the power of MetaActive™ and a highly attractive gel formulation, Advion® provides a powerful new tool for broad-spectrum ant control.

The translucent, no odor, non-staining formulation maintains its integrity for extended periods. This allows ants to consume more bait over an extended period, resulting in thorough control of the entire infestation.

Advion® ant gel contains a unique active ingredient unlike any other ant gel. In fact, it’s the only member of its class of chemistry, the Oxadiazines, so it performs like no other insecticide. Based on its excellent environmental and toxicological profile, this new technology from DuPont Professional Products is one of only a few insecticides to be classified as Reduced-Risk by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.




Active Ingredient: Indoxacarb 0.05%


Target pests: All major species of ants including: Argentine, Big Headed, Carpenter, Cornfield, Crazy, Field, Ghost, Harvester, Honey, Little Black, Odorous House, Pavement, Pharaoh, Pyramid, Red Imported Fire Ant, Rover, Thief and White Footed.

Don't throw away your ant poison. It works but you need to add some honey or milk to it to attract the ants. The ants will disappear in 2 days.

Try the Syngenta brand, its based on Thiamethoxame, slower acting that way its ensured to be transferred to the Queen but again you will have another specie replacing them. Usually it takes quite a few gos unless you stay next to a reserve which makes it next to impossible. Unfortunately resistance will occur and switching brands helps
