    Works great but tends to run

    By Tyler on 04/23/2011

    This product works absolutely fantastic. I took care of an entire Odorous Ant infestation with nothing but Optigard. My ONLY complaint is that sometimes it comes out of the tube in liquid form and runs all over the place.

    Works Quickly on Most Types of Ants

    By Richard on 10/15/2012

    I have just reordered Optigard Ant Bait Gel after using three tubes over the past two months. It worked extremely well on small and medium-size brown ants and reasonably well on carpenter ants. I have just ordered Maxforce carpenter ant gel to see how that compares. After years of low ant activity, our home was an ant target this summer. Carpenter ants nested in the maple tree in our front yard, and others came across our side patio from a neighbor's yard. Both colonies made a line for our house. Tiny brown ants kept climbing up our downspouts to nest in our gutters and medium-size brown ants kept probing our patio door to get inside. Where ant spray and boric acid powder worked in the past, the ants this year seemed immune to it after a few days. That's when I started using the Optigard gel and got immediate results. I applied it on ant trails, and the brown ants immediately swarmed around it; probably 80% of them ate it immediately, and they would wander off of their trails to eat it. Carpenter ants were more finicky; maybe 30% of them ate it when I put the bait right in front of them as they climbed down the maple tree; they would ignore it a few inches away. I used Optigard in combination with the Advance Select Granular Ant Bait. End result: I have observed no carpenter ants in the maple tree for weeks, and the brown ants were almost 100% gone until today, when a line of them began migrating across the patio wall near our house. I used Optigard to bait their trails, and they swarmed to it. I keep a tube of it handy to check for new ant trails when I go outside. Squirting a one inch line of the gel across a trail is usually sufficient to attract ants when I see them scouting the area. This is an effective product.

    Ants on long island

    By Kevin on 07/24/2011

    Verified Purchase

    i have odorous house ants. They will not eat Advion/Gourmet ant gel/Maxforce/Drax (and I bought them all!) and therefore any of these were completely useless bacuse if ants dont eat it, they dont die. This is the only gel bait they would eat, and it doesnt even ship to NY. It helps to know people out of state....(4 stars because it is not available to be shipped to NY)
