When I bought my first tube of Gourmet Ant Bait Gel in 2011, I was amazed how well it work. All my ants were wiped out in 2-3 days. This time the results are not as stellar. Some ants are eating it, but there are plenty that are just walking around. And I bought this new tube because I thought after 5 years, the old tube was losing its effectiveness. But alas, the ants are just getting more picky, or smarter, or both.
Ants only ate at it for 1 hour or less, then left it alone.
However after placing it in 4 spots inside, and 2 outside, the ants have left the area.
Not sure if its the poison bait or the weather change here - just changed over to winter here in FL.
The grass has stopped growing, maybe the ants go South, not sure why they are gone but they are gone.
