Maxforce Fleet Ant Gel provides FAST CONTROL of ants in 3-5 days and is formulated to effectively control most species of ants. That's because this product contains Fipronil, a fast-acting active ingredient. Its speed is still slow enough, however, for foraging ants to return to the colony and feed the bait to larvae and queen(s) so that the entire colony is killed through the Domino Effect. The new, thicker formula stands up where you need it!

The high moisture content of MAXFORCE Fleet Ant Bait Gel enhances the bait's attractiveness to target ants. The bait's attractiveness is greatest within two weeks of application. This product is a bait product, formulated to take advantage of ant trophallaxis. Through trophallaxis, worker ants eat the bait while foraging, then feed it to the rest of the colony. The larvae digest the solid bait and produce a liquid containing the Fipronil that is fed to the rest of the colony and queen(s). This product controls a broad spectrum of ants including Argentine, Pharaoh, Pavement, Honey, Acrobat, and more!

For indoor use: Visually inspect for ants and place gel in areas where you see ants. Likely locations for ants and gel placements are areas where ants enter the building structure and areas with potential water damage including: wall voids, cracks and crevices in kitchen, bathroom, under sink, windowsills, screen vents, garage, attic, and crawl spaces. Do not place bait in locations that are routinely washed, as bait will be removed by washing. Do not treat food preparation surfaces. For outdoor use: Place gel outdoors into, on or adjacent to structures where you see ants, next to ant trails and suspected areas of ant activity. Likely locations for ants and gel placements are points of entry into structure and areas with potential water damage including: eaves, soffits, weep holes, where wires and pipes come into the building structure, trees, stumps, roots, wood decks, fences, planter boxes, woodpiles, landscaping, and railroad ties. Extreme heat or cold, direct sunlight and water may reduce the residual effectiveness. Apply Gel outdoors into Refillable Bait Stations or other devices designed to hold and protect bait outdoors. Close Refillable Bait Station securely after application.
Inspect placements and reapply as needed; The gel will remain attractive to ants for up to two weeks. Inspect gel placements and reapply as needed. reapply in the same area if bait is gone or in a different location if no ant activity is evident. You will notice fewer ants in days.
Applications in Food/Feed Handling Establishments:
Apply with syringe applicator or bait injector directly into cracks and crevices. Place applicator tip into cracks and crevices and where ants may travel. Apply gel (up to 1 gram) per spot. Apply bait in small amounts between different elements of construction, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, cabinets, sinks, stoves and other places where ants may enter the establishment. During follow-up visits inspect bait placements and reapply when necessary.
Do not apply bait to areas where food/feed, food utensils or food processing surfaces may become contaminated. Do not apply bait in cracks and crevices of areas that are routinely washed, tops of tables, food/feed preparation and prepared food/feed holding surfaces as bait may be removed by washing. Do not apply bait to surfaces where the temperature exceeds 120 degrees F as bait may run. Examples include, but are not limited to, portions of stoves, ovens, grills, fume hoods, heat lamps, coffee urns, steam tables, toasters, fryers, dishwashers and hot water pipes. Care should be taken to avoid depositing gel onto exposed surfaces. If gel contacts an exposed surface, remove it and wash exposed surface.
This product controls a broad spectrum of ants. Thus this product controls additional ants including: Acrobat ant, Argentine ant, big-headed ant, carpenter ant, cornfield ant, field honey ant, odorous house ant, pavement ant, pharaoh ant, thief ant.
