(I applied this for small odorous house ant type of ants. They entered into my apartment through the windows and nested inside the walls behind the bathroom) Bayer needs to re-evaluate their production quality on this product. From the get-go, the Maxforce FC ant gel is messy to use, because the gel formula is not sufficiently bound together, formulation-wise, in the tube. So when you put the plunger in to start using it, the drippy, runny, liquidy portion of the formula starts to immediately drip out in the direction of your hand. Then, when you try applying dots of the product on walls or surfaces, the texture of the gel is already crumbly, somewhat dry, and doesn't put out a stay-put, well homogenized moist dollup. The consistency of the gel totally fails. Another thing is, it seems to paralyze the ants too quickly, as opposed to allowing for the transfer effect to take place in having the ants take it back to the nest. Ants would take one hit of it, and almost instantly get paralyzed and pass out. Another thing i noticed was that the ants were more attracted to Advion gel over the Maxforce FC. On a basic level, just too messy to use, due to poor formulation on Bayer's part. Advion, on the other hand, was much cleaner to use, and the proper consistency. Advion is produced much better. Been baiting for over a month in areas of my bathroom and living room where the floor meets the wall with a combination of Maxforce FC, Advion Ant gel, and Advance granules, and the colony or colonies, are still NOT knocked out. So I'm biting the bullet, and am now going to try out applying non-repellant surface treatment insecticide (Alpine WSG first. Then, if that doesn't work, I'm resorting to applying Phantom SC. Alpine WSG is the lesser toxic one, and Phantom is the more toxic one). I'll let y'all know how those applications go / if they finally succeed in eradicating the colony or colonies in my apt walls.
