Kills all varieties including the florida carpenter ant, camponotus modoc, etc. The Maxforce Domino Effect kills even the most hidden and inaccessible colonies. Use the Maxforce Bait Gun for best application results.

Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel acts as a moisture source and as an alternative food source to Carpenter ants and a wide variety of sweet feeding ants. Apply in small pea size placements into areas where these ants are known to harborage, nest or forage for food.
Applications of Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel must be made directly to nesting areas where possible by direct injection through pathways, kick-out holes, or by drilling holes into these areas. Random placements where it is thought that ants can find the bait are ineffective. Only direct application to breeding and nesting sites is effective.
The overall effectiveness of this bait is totally dependent on the ants feeding patterns. Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel is a sweet or carbohydrate based bait. Ants will cycle through a protein only feeding phase at certain times of the year. Knowing when this protein feeding phase will occur is difficult to predict. If this bait is not consumed within 3-7 days of placement, in most cases, the moisture evaporates, the bait hardens and the ants will not consume it. Re-applications every 3-7 days are usually needed to maintain a constant feeding supply until all signs of ant activity cease. The time it takes for this to occur is usually 2-4 weeks after ants begin feeding.
Do not assume that when this bait is placed, that ants will automatically be drawn to it and you will see ants feeding. Feeding cycles vary, and most ants feed at night. Do not assume that you will see dead ants or piles of dead ants. Under normal conditions, AFTER ants begin feeding there is a decline in visual activity leading to a complete disappearance of foraging ants.
Depending on the size and location of the ant population, species, etc, several tubes may be necessary for acceptable control.
