Product Overview

Antopia R6 Ant Bait Station is the new replacement for the Antopia R2 Ant Bait Station. The Antopia R6 Ant Bait station contains many patented features unique to the Antopia station. The new feature of the Antopia R6 is that it holds up to 6 oz of bait (liquid, gel or granular), which is only 1 oz less than the R2 but is easier to anchor more securely in the ground and easier to check the fill levels. In addition to being a weather tolerant, bait station dispenser, the Antopia R6 contains a heavy duty green cover which protects the internal reservoir from weed whackers and also protects the bait from contamination, heat and UV light. The patented green cover on the Antopia R6 Ant Bait Station allows the user to check bait levels without removing it, and it also blends in with any garden or yard application. The Antopia R6 Ant Bait Station uses Feeding Float Technology (FFT) which makes it easier for ants to access the bait and ensures they exit the station safely to bring the bait back to the colony. The Feeding Float reduces evaporation and keeps ants from drowning. The Antopia R6 is made strong for multi-season use and is cost effective. Bait sold separately.

For use in: Outdoors.
Application: 1. If bait station tab locks are present and engaged , apply downward pressure with thumb and forefinger to release. Pull up on the green cover while lock is disengaged to expose the bait reservoir. To engage the lock, align the flat panels of the green cover with the clear cover guides and apply downward pressure until you feel the tab locks engage.
2. Loosen the soil in the spot where you are going to place the station to width of about 3" and a depth of about 7" with a garden trowel or small shovel.
