Most growers spray pesticides and use scatter baits to control ants in their fields. It’s an endless task that results in using huge amounts in a single growing season. But using pesticides in large grow fields to control ants seldom results in control. Why? because using topical pesticides only kills the exposed worker ants. It does not control the colony, kings or queens.
Ant Control in Agriculture and Food Crops
Most ant species reproduce faster when exposed to fast killing pesticides. Spraying trees, plants, ground and everything in between is costly and can contaminate the food product. This encourages ants to lay eggs, reproduce and even divide their colonies into several new colonies for survival.
Ants in these settings, specifically Argentine ants, can become a huge financial nightmare. They can spread disease and cause Citrus Greening caused by the Asian Citrus Psyllid. They can destroy crops and cause a significant financial loss.
Argentine Ants are responsible for spreading disease and parasites in growing fields – especially in Florida, South Texas and Southern California. They are also one of the most difficult ants in the entire world to control.
Controlling ants in vineyards, orchards and gardens has been virtually impossible without some possibility of contaminating the crops. For many growers, spreading large amounts of pesticides over their crops has been the only accepted means of controlling them. The KM Ant Pro liquid bait dispenser solves the problem and controls ants – long term.
Certified Organic Food Crop Compliant – Meets USDA Organic Program Standards
Pesticides, scatter baits and other control measures can be very costly and contaminate the environment. They do not fit well with an organic or even a reduced pesticide treatment strategy. Organic and natural treatments including those using beneficial insects can be very expensive and minimally effective. Growers need a system that is cost effective, meets buyers demands and works.
The KM Ant Pro liquid bait dispenser uses boron based liquid baits to control ants. Boron is considered to be extremely low in toxicity. It is very similar to table salt. When ants feed on liquid baits containing boron, the bacteria in their gut is destroyed. This unique action causes them to not be able to digest foods. As a result they die.
Boron Based – Zero Environmental Impact
In the past, boron based baits have been known to be very effective in controlling aggressive invasive ant species such as Argentine, White Footed, Ghost, Thief – even fire ants such as Little Fire Ant and European Fire Ants. The problem has been to keep this bait available to them 24/7 without the need for continual monitoring or replacement.
The KM Ant Pro liquid bait dispenser is the answer. By utilizing a “Patent Pending” gravity feed reservoir that keeps the liquid bait totally secure, ants can feed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 90 days or longer. In fact, the KM Ant Pro dispenser requires ants to “release” the bait by feeding. This keeps the bait from spilling, and also keeps it contained resulting in zero environmental impact and reduced maintenance costs.
It’s very effective, used by National Parks and endorsed by Major Universities such as the University of California at Riverside. The KM Ant Pro system is also used by major growers all across Southern California to South Florida.

How Ant Pro Works
When the KM Ant Pro dispenser is filled with liquid ant bait and activated, a small quantity of bait is released into a pool on it’s base. As ants consume the liquid bait, a liquid tension duct within the base refills the pool automatically.
The KM Ant Pro dispenser offers full 360 degree access and an uninterrupted feeding pool for ants and other insects. This protects the bait from sun, wind, rain and weather elements. It also protects the bait from people, animals and pets. Birds, squirrels and other small animals cannot access the bait pool which reduces the overall cost by keeping bait usage very low.
Ants will feed in total protection from the environment and are free to enter and leave at will. The gravity feed reservoir provides enough bait to feed several ant colonies simultaneously over a long period of time. A single fill of the KM Ant Pro liquid bait dispenser can feed over 225,000 ants!
Another important benefit – more than one species of ant will forage at the dispensers at the same time.
Ant Pros will eliminate ants and other crawling insects from around your crops and provide a barrier to re-infestation. There simply is no other product on the market that compares in ease of application, economy and maintenance.
“More than one species of ant will forage at the Ant Pro units at the same time. A single fill can feed over 225,000 ants!”
KM Ant Pro dispensers will destroy ant colonies for moderately infested areas without refill for up to 90 days. Replace the liquid bait every 90 days for best results.
They are easily refilled and can be left unattended in practically any installation. Care should be taken when placing Ant Pros near livestock, or pets.
Ant Pro dispensers are exceptionally durable, and can be refilled, when necessary, and will last many years when maintained correctly.
Ant Pros For Vineyards, Orchards, Gardens and Crop Rows
KM Ant Pro dispensers can be placed along crop rows and directly beside growing crops to effectively kill argentine, fire ants and other pesky ant species. The large size of the KM Ant Pro makes perfect sense for these critical applications – they are easy to find and only need filling once every 90 days.
As mentioned, a single fill of the reservoir can feed over 225,000 ants. This makes maintenance a breeze and reduces labor and overall long term costs.
The KM Ant Pro ant control system is weather tolerant and is also tamper resistant. It is safe to use in areas where liquid pesticides or scatter baits cannot be used.
The dispensers are easy to use and virtually eliminate any possibility of cross contamination of plants. They eliminate the need for using pesticides where ants are a problem.
The KM Ant Pro system is being utilized in University and EPA funded research studies. The system is effectively eliminating both crop and wildlife damaging invasive ant species without the application of any insecticides into the environment.
This system accomplishes control of aggressive invasive ants without liquid pesticides, scatter baits or other environmentally questionable products.
Use KM Ant Pro’s with confidence on your toughest ant problems – including Argentine and Fire ants.
“Four (4) Ant Pro dispensers will normally treat an entire acre of land for preventive and maintenance purposes.”
KM Ant Pro liquid bait dispensers are highly durable, rugged devices which provide consistent long term ant control. The unit is refillable and will provide years of dependable service when maintained correctly. It comes with an attachable stake to secure it to the ground so that it stays in place.
In Agricultural applications large areas can be treated with Ant Pros. This eliminates the need to spread pesticides on crops, pastures and where livestock live and graze.
Orchards and harvesting areas will be much safer for workers. The cost of control for imported fire ants, argentine ants, white-footed ants and many other species of ant is greatly reduced.
In severely ant infested areas, place 1 Km Ant Pro dispenser every 50 linear feet or 2500 square feet. For maintenance or preventive programs place 1 Ant Pro every 100 feet or 10,000 square feet. Four (4) Ant Pro dispensers will normally treat an entire acre of land.
