It works quickly, but not too quickly, thus allowing the ants to consume a large quantity and take it back to the nest to feed to the developing larvae and.. to the queens.
Note: Put down a strip of painters tape next to the ant trail, not over it, put 'dots' of the product all along the tape. This will allow the ants to quickly find it - they are tuned into the sweet smell, apparently, as within a minute or two, they will be surrounding the dots like cattle at a water trough. They stay quite a while pumping in the liquid before taking off back to the nest. Within a few hours you will notice a significant drop in the number of ants coming to the bait - and you may have to refresh the bait as they tend to eat it up. By the next day the ants are gone. There may be ants to vacuum up around the tape as well.
My only complaint is that it is supposed to come with a plunger - it does not (it is advertised as having one). I was told to use a magic marker. It works, but it is not the way these things are supposed to work. I called and no offer was made to send the plunger. Just be aware of that.
Oh yes, you also have to chill the syringe before using or it is too watery. No big deal. But do remember this stuff is a poison and can have some pretty nasty effects on dogs. (Yes, I know it is used in Frontline and I do NOT use Frontline on my dogs. I spray the house with Precor - far better and safer for my 4 leggeds.)
