I have been applying the bait as recommended for several weeks now and have yet seen any results. The only contact that the ants have with the bait is that they remove it from their location. I have watched them do this after continuous applications of the bait. I do find it rather funny to watch them clear the bait away and become dismayed that after all the expense on pest control I still have issues with the colonies in various locations around my property. This is a serious issues for me and have yet to find a method that will actually work on getting rid of these pests. For the performance of this product I would have to rate no stars at this time, but alas I have to at least rate one to submit this review. I hope others that use this product have better success.
Baiting for ants sometimes can be tricky because the appetite of a colony can change frequently and without signs of when or how often this may happen. The bait you purchased is for most common types of ants that are seeking protein foods. If a colony is not seeking protein, then we recommend using a liquid or gel bait, such as Maxforce Quantum: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/maxforce-quantum-ant-bait-p-1884.html. You also want to apply your bait when the ground is dry and you are not expecting rain or watering within at least 24 hours. Also, different chemical methods of control may be more suitable, depending on exactly which type of ants you are finding.
