    Works great... but not on carpenter ants

    By Anthony on 07/11/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I've used this on its own and in tandem with liquid gels to no avail. When I put the Advance out around my house, little ants were eating this stuff up like it was candy. But the large black carpenter ants (the reason I bought this in the first place) don't even sniff the stuff. They walk right past, over, and around it. I see other smaller ants coming from everywhere to gather up the little granules of Advance, but the carpenter ants could care less. Still looking for something that will work for my carpenter ant problem.

    Should not have bought!

    By Anonymous on 06/13/2013

    Should have put all the money I spent on the bait towards a professional exterminator! Did this last winter first, now doing it again, seems like there is more than ever. Now in my house. I won't buy anymore.

    Not happy with the result

    By Dustin on 09/05/2017

    Only worked for a day. Not sure if it was even this product that even did that. It may have been the weather. As I'm writing this my dog is running around me eating the carpenter ants that are trying to attack me lol. Have applied this product for over 2 weeks now consistently. Would not recommend.

    What is all the hype about???

    By Janeiro on 07/12/2019

    I purchased this and the ants were really attracted to this on the first day. 10 days later and I'm still seeing ants and the pile that I put out to re-bait hasn't been touched and yes I bought the gel too and the ants have simply ignored it totally.

    Did not work for me

    By Jay on 08/22/2019

    I used this as directed by the label to control carpenter ants that are living in my structures. I applied it in conjunction with the Maxforce liquid bait. Most of the colonies ignored the bait, but I did see some carried back to the nest. However, the bait failed to kill the colonies. I had similar results with my second application. To be fair, the other granular baits I tried before this failed to pique their interest as well. I was hoping the bait formulated specifically for carpenter ants would fare better.

    Did not work for Carpenter Ants in Santa Cruz Mountains

    By Dc on 07/29/2020

    Have carpenter ants in the house and put this stuff around. Saw 2-3 of them just walk around it showing absolutely no interest. I had Terro lying around and thought I'd give it a try. Oddly enough they went for that instead as I heard sometimes they do not go for Terro. Not sure if they were just having a sweet tooth. The carpenter ants I had were reddish and black.
