Ant Cafe General Information:
The Ant Cafe is sold in a resealable zip lock storage bag of 48 stations that may be used over and over again. Each bag is imprinted with directions for use and includes 48 double sided tapes and 50 locking ties. The double sided tape allows you to secure the Ant Cafe station to walls, cabinets, and window sills where ants have been seen foraging from their colonies. The bait stations may also be hung on branches or from pipes. Placed vertically, the Ant Cafe holds ¼ ounce of liquid bait.

Some of the most popular ant baits with highest acceptance that we recommend for use with your Ant Cafe bait stations include:
1. Gourmet Ant Bait Gel
2. Maxforce Ant Killer Bait Gel

For Carpenter Ants, try one of these excellent products in your Ant Cafe bait station:
1. Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait
2. Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules

Baiting strategy:
1. Do not use more than one type of bait in a single Ant Cafe. If you are unsure which bait to start with, try Gourmet Gel in a few stations and Maxforce Gel in others.
2. Secure the Ant Cafe station to walls, cabinets, and window sills where ants have been seen foraging from their colonies. The bait stations may also be hung on branches or from pipes.
3. Continue to inspect your Ant Cafes every couple of days. These inspections should indicate to you whether ants prefer a particular bait over the other and which locations are best.
4. If the ants decide they want a different food, be prepared to switch out baits and/ or locations

Ant Cafe Tip: Some species of pest ants, like Pharaoh Ants, Crazy Ants and Acrobat Ants can be controlled with Ant Cafe but most other pest ant species will require larger placements for control.

    Ant Cafe Refillable Bait Station excellent product

    By Jfalde on 04/10/2012

    Verified Purchase

    They work perfectly to fill/refill with bait to kill ants. It has small hole for ants to go in... very small ants...if you have larger ants, just make the hole a bit bigger.. bait stays in there and does not dry out easily. Easy to fill..once filled they do not leak

    Ant Cafe Refillable Bait station

    By Shaggy on 10/03/2011

    Verified Purchase

    Right now, the problem is gone inside and out. To really see what next season holds in store will tell everything about these stations. They are what I needed and I plan on reusing them. It's worth it for the Argentine ants. Spraying doesn't always cut it. Doing it myself and me making the choices on what to use is a lot less headache than having a pro do it. All they wanted to do was spray once a month inside and out. No thank you!

    Great Little Invention!

    By Anonymous on 07/14/2013

    Verified Purchase

    These tiny bait stations hold lots of bait, and the Gourmet Liquid Ant bait stays liquid enough for ants to harvest it for much longer than in open air. My ants climb up the big bottle of ant bait (and up everything else) but are too dumb to go in a closed trap -- I have to put them on the side that isn't raise by the door or its latch, at least at first (until a trail is established). They're sturdy, washable, and with 48 I can pretty well cover any area I want to. Great work!

    Does the job!

    By Cathy on 03/17/2016

    It took no time to put a safe end to our ant invasion thanks to these bait stations! I did have to increase the size of the holes and, actually, left the ends open to facilitate even easier access. Worked like a charm while eliminating our dog's exposure to the bait!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Will the Ant Cafe work on red ants?
A
The Ant Cafe Bait Station is the add-your-own-bait refillable container which does not include the bait. We do offer a Complete Ant Kit that will treat a variety of ants. We recommend applying a fire bait granule for fire ant treatment such as the Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait.

Q
Why should I not use more than one type of bait in a single Ant Cafe?

I have not been able to find a source for this suggestion, and it seems counter-intuitive...

A

You only want to use one type of bait in the Ant Cafe Refillable Bait Station - Bag (48 stations) because there is only one reservoir. There is nothing to separate them.
