Ant Control in Agriculture and Food Crops
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.
Effective, Natural Ant Control Without Sprays
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.
How KM AntPro® 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.
KM AntPro® For Vineyards, Orchards, Gardens and Crops
KM AntPro® 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, 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 AntPro® 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 AntPro® 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 AntPro® with confidence on your toughest ant problems – including Argentine and Crazy Ants.
“Four (4) KM AntPro® dispensers will normally treat an entire acre of land for preventive and maintenance purposes.”
Durable, Rugged, Built To Last
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 AntPro® 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) KM AntPro® dispensers will normally treat an entire acre of land.

KM AntPro® can be a great investment in your growing or farming operation. The economic savings of using KM AntPro® VS a traditional pesticide spray program can be significant.
KM AntPro® dispensers are designed to not only last through the elements, they are designed to last without the need for maintenance. They can be refilled as needed or as often as necessary. This all depends on the ant populations. In most cases, refilling is only needed 2 times per year - at the beginning of the growing season and then 3-4 months later.
Economy is also key. KM AntPro® supports large commercial growers and ranchers with its proprietary ant attractant formulas that can save money over the cost of purchasing gallons or quarts.
KM AntPro® can be placed along crop rows to control foraging infesting ants and be a valuable tool in eliminating the need for traditional pesticide sprays and dusts.
