Product Overview

DuPont Advion ant bait arena provides complete control of nuisance ant colonies (excluding carpenter ants) with the active ingredient indoxacarb, an insecticide that acts through ingestion by ants. The bait's slow-acting poison provides enough time for foraging ants to return to nest sites and contaminate other colony members including larvae and queens, eventually destroying the entire colony. Each bag contains 30 stations. Adhesive backs are included so that the stations can be mounted on surfaces such as the corners and sidewalls of cabinets.

Details

DuPont Advion ant bait arena provides complete control of nuisance ant colonies with the active ingredient indoxacarb, an insecticide that acts through ingestion by ants.

Placement of ADVION Ant Bait Arenas in and around structures will kill foraging ants, including fire ants and harvester ants, but for complete control of outdoor nests of fire ants or harvester ants, use a broadcast or direct mound treatment product. Space sprays or other residual insecticides should not be applied directly to or near the bait arenas. Application of these insecticides can cause ants to behave abnormally and therefore reduce the potential of feeding on the bait inside the station. Foraging ants must be able to feed on the bait and return to the colony.

How to use Advion Ant Bait Arena effectively:

Advion ant bait arenas should be placed in areas where ants are currently foraging or foraging activity is suspected. The ant bait arenas should be placed adjacent to active foraging trails when possible. Care should be exercised in order to reduce the disturbance to the natural foraging pattern. If placed along foraging trails properly, ants should detect and begin feeding at the bait station within approximately 30 minutes. An increase in foraging activity around the station indicates good recruitment.

Indoor Use:

  1. Thoroughly inspect infested area to determine proper placement of ADVION ant bait arenas.
  2. Placement of 1-4 ant bait arenas where ants are observed is adequate to control normal ant infestations. Heavy infestations or infestations that are difficult to access or heavier infestations in larger areas may require application of additional ADVION ant bait arenas.
  3. ADVION ant bait arenas may be placed on vertical surfaces by using an adhesive on the bottom of the station.
  4. In addition to being placed directly along foraging trails, place ADVION ant bait arenas along walls, under appliances or industrial equipment, inside garbage containers, inside cabinets, under furniture, or any locations where there is ant activity or ants can potentially gain entry into a building or structure.
  5. Do not place arenas on food preparation surfaces.
  6. Inspect the ADVION ant bait arenas periodically and replace as needed or every 2 to 3 months.

Outdoor Use:

  1. Thoroughly inspect infested area to determine proper ADVION ant bait arena placement. Pay close attention to areas where ants may gain access to a building or structure.
  2. Apply ADVION ant bait arena on or near building/structure exterior areas where ants are actively foraging such as near tree bases, along exterior walls, around garbage-collection areas, utility accesses, windows, vents, or along the ground next to structures.
  3. ADVION ant bait arenas may be placed on vertical surfaces by using an adhesive on the bottom of the station.
  4. Placement of 1-4 ant bait arenas where ants are observed is adequate to control normal ant infestations. Heavy infestations or infestations that are difficult to access or heavier infestations in larger areas may require application of additional bait arenas.
  5. Inspect the ADVION ant bait arenas periodically and replace as needed or every 2 to 3 months.

    Advion Really Works

    By Vernon on 04/08/2010

    Verified Purchase

    If Advion is placed in the ant trail they really do start taking the bait within 30 minutes. The ants are very active and almost bump into each other going into and out of the Bait Arena. Ants are gone in less than 24 hours. Completely satisfied and glad that we purchased this product and followed the instructions.

    Ant problem solved!

    By Dsk on 04/22/2010

    Verified Purchase

    Last season the Advion bait traps worked when all other OTC traps failed, including professional spraying. Our exterminator recommended the Advion. Whereas the ants seemed to ignore other traps, the ants seemed sucked into the Advion and within 36 hours I had lots of dead ants and the stream of ants previously coming out of the walls had stopped. I just bought another bag for this season.

    Advion Ant Bait Arena - Disappointing

    By Rf on 05/31/2010

    Verified Purchase

    Very Disappointing. Our tiny blank ants run by them like they were not even there. They probably work well for some ants, but were not a good use of money for me.

    May depend on ant type

    By Anna on 04/25/2012

    We have tiny black ants. They actually appear to be repelled by the bait. After placing the baits in the trail didn't work (the ants would go around and over it, but not inside), I cut one open and placed the substance directly in the ants' path. They just went around. I then sprayed it with a little sugar water to make it more attractive. To no avail. The ants were attracted to the sugar water in the vicinity sure enough, but avoided the bait. When I picked up a few ants with a toothpick and placed them directly on the bait, they just ran away.

Q
Do I need to do anything to the trap or are the ready to go out of the package?

I had used them before and they were amazing (from a pest control pro) so I ordered a bag when we had ants again this spring. The baits do not seem to be doing anything so I wondered if I missed a step of removing part of the packaging or adding water or something.

A
The Advion Ant Baits come ready to use. Ants nutritional needs change frequently. This means that one day they may only forage for proteins, like what is contained in the Advion Ant Bait Stations and another day they may forage for carbohydrates like the ingredients contained in the Maxforce Ant Bait gel. We recommend leaving the Advion Stations in place and allow the ants to continue their natural foraging. We also recommend using an ant bait gel or liquid in the same area where you placed the stations to allow the ants to select the bait that fits their needs.

Q
What is the shelf life of the Advion Ant Bait Arena?

I bought a bag of the Ant baits last summer. They worked great then. Now, I set some out for new ants coming in and the ants don't even notice them. How accurate is the shelf life information? I would like to know if I just need a fresh batch of Advion Bait traps or try something else for these ants. Thanks

A
Advion Ant Bait Arenas typically have a shelf life of 6-12 months after being opened. However, baits have food grade ingredients that will go stale which makes the bait less attractive to insects, so for optimal acceptance baits should be used within 6 months of opening.

Q
Are the Advion Ant Bait Arenas dangerous to pets and children if they touch them?
A
The actual bait is contained inside the center of the Advion Ant Bait Arena so just touching the exterior of the arena will not be harmful. We do still recommend placing the stations in areas that are not readily accessible by pets and children.
