Outdoor Ant Kit

The Outdoor Ant Kit contains the professional products you need to control most common species of ants found outdoors. This kit includes Taurus SC liquid insecticide, a non-repellent spray that should be applied around the foundation of structures and where ants may enter. It also includes two baits with different formulations and food attractants so that you can target any foraging ants: Maxforce Complete Granular Ant Bait mimics protein foods, and Maxforce Quantum Ant Bait mimics sweet or simple carbohydrate foods. These baits can be applied side by side, conveniently, in the included Ants No More Bait Stations.

As with all of our Pest Control Kits, we recommend using an Integrated Pest Management  approach to ant control. It is crucial to practice good sanitation  by eliminating competing food and water sources, and to eliminate harborage and entrance points to keep ants from entering the structure.

You will need a pressurized sprayer such as a Chapin 1 Gallon Hand Pump Sprayer to apply the Taurus SC. Browse all of our hand pump sprayers here.

Before applying any insecticides, it is important to inspect and to prepare the treatment area. Practice good sanitation by eliminating food and water sources that may compete with the baits you are about to apply. Outdoor sanitation includes tasks such as keeping outdoor trash cans cleaned and away from the structure, removing debris piles where ants like to harbor, and creating a dry zone adjacent to the structure by pulling back mulch, pine straw, or other barriers. Also find ways to seal up and eliminate access points into the structure. These steps will help not only to treat an existing infestation, but also to prevent future problems. Once you have identified the hot spots where ants are trailing and could possibly enter the structure, you are ready to use the products in your Outdoor Ant Control Kit.

How to Apply the Outdoor Ant Control Kit

STEP 1 - SPRAY - Taurus SC

*Taurus SC is a liquid concentrate that must be diluted with water only and applied with a sprayer.

*Taurus SC is a non-repellent spray, meaning it has an intentionally slow kill on the individual ant. This gives the ants time to spread the active ingredient throughout their colony through their regular social and food-sharing habits.

*Shake the bottle to make sure the concentrate is ready to dilute. The tip-and-pour bottle makes measuring simple: with the label facing you, simply tip the bottle to the left so that liquid fills the small reservoir up to the 0.8 oz. line. Use 0.8 oz. of concentrate per gallon of water in your sprayer. When you are ready to pour, unscrew only the cap on the angled small reservoir.

*To dilute the Taurus SC, fill your sprayer tank 1/3 - 1/2 with water, add Taurus SC, and gently agitate the mixture. Finish filling the tank and agitate again prior to spraying.

*Make only enough solution to use for your current application. Do not store spray solution in your sprayer since it will degrade quickly and may damage the sprayer seals. Most outdoor applications will require 1-2 gallons of finished solution.

*Apply Taurus SC solution around the foundation of the structure, creating a barrier one foot out on the ground and one foot up onto the building itself. Also spray areas where ants may enter, such as around window frames, door frames, places where cables, pipes or wires enter the structure, and any other place where you have noticed ants crawling or trailing on the structure.

*If you are using baits outdoors, do not make spray applications directly on top of bait or bait stations.

*Do not broadcast Taurus SC or apply in the yard away from the structure.

*Keep people and pets out of the treatment area until the application is dry, usually about an hour.

*Do not spray on edibles such as vegetable gardens.

*Taurus SC applications are limited to twice annually, so most folks choose to treat once in the spring when activity begins, and again in late summer or early fall, if needed.

*Store concentrate out of direct sunlight and in a temperate area for up to 3 years.

STEP 2 - BAIT - Ants No More Bait Stations, Maxforce Complete Granular Ant Bait, Maxforce Quantum Ant Bait

*Allow spray application to dry before placing stations.

*Always use bait in clean, dry bait stations.

*The Ants No More Bait Stations are designed for discreet outdoor use, protecting bait from rain, sunlight, and non-target animals. The two interior compartments allow you to use two different ant baits in each station. You will apply the Maxforce Complete granules in one side, and the Maxforce Quantum Ant Bait in the other side.

*This kit contains 12 bait stations, but you may not need to use all of them at once. Stations should be place approximately 25 feet apart, so most homes may only use 4 stations around the perimeter of the structure. Stations may be placed in other areas of high ant activity, keeping in mind that it is neither necessary nor ideal to eliminate all the ants from an outdoor area.

*To open the stations, line up the arrow on the cylindrical body (there is a dip in the station) with the center mark on the lift tab of the lid.

*Push up on the lid, then push back on the opening so the lid can pop up.

*Apply up to 1-2 oz. (2-4 Tbsp.) of Maxforce Complete Granular Bait per station (each side of the station holds approximately 2 oz. of bait). You should not fill the granules all the way to the top of the compartment to prevent excess condensation buildup.

*To use the Maxforce Quantum Ant Bait, first remove the blue cap from the tube. For your first application, you will need to cut the tip of the tube with a knife or sharp shears to create an opening. Cut approximately 1/4 in. from the tip to create an opening about 1/8 inch in diameter.

*The Maxforce Quantum Ant Bait may be used as is, or it may be mixed into a sugar solution to create more bait. We recommend making the following mixture to get the maximum use out of your bait:

  • You will need clean water, bait, granulated sugar, a container for mixing, and either a lid to cover and shake the solution or a spoon or other tool to mix the solution.
  • To make enough solution to fill one compartment in each of 4 stations: in 8 ounces of water, mix 1 ounce (30 g) of Maxforce Quantum and 2 ounces of sugar. Distribute evenly in each station.
  • To make enough solution to fill all 12 stations: in 24 ounces of water, mix 3 oz (90 g) of Maxforce Quantum and 6 ounces of sugar. Distribute evenly in each station.
  • Do not store extra solution more than a few days since bacteria and mold may develop.

*Replace the lid on filled stations by popping on at any orientation.

*Place stations in the ground up to the first entry and exit holes in the stake.

*Check stations after a few days to determine if placements need to be altered or bait needs to be replenished.

*If baits appear moldy or granules are wet and puffy, replace with fresh bait as needed.

*Maxforce Quantum also comes with 10 refillable bait stations. Maxforce Quantum can be applied in these stations by placing a small amount (do not overfill) in one or more of the small interior compartments, then closing the station like a book. Be sure the lid is secure, then place stations in areas of ant activity such as near trails or nests, near the foundation, or along fence lines. Replenish bait as needed.

*Bait stations may be wiped clean and rinsed with water as needed. Avoid using harsh cleaners or fragrant soaps as these may make baits less palatable to the ants.

*Maxforce Complete granules can be used on the ground directly, although we recommend using these applications sparingly since bait is protected from rain and other weathering inside bait stations. Sprinkle evenly in a 1-2 foot wide band adjacent to the structure at a rate of 0.5 oz. (1 tablespoon) of bait per 25 linear feet (4-8 oz. per 200-400 linear feet). Broadcast at a rate of 1 oz per 1.800 sq ft (1.5 lbs/A). To treat mounds, sprinkle approximately 1 oz. (2 Tablespoons) of bait around each ant mound without disturbing ant activity. Apply when the ground is dry and rain is not expected for at least 24 hours.

*Store baits in a dry, temperate area, out of direct sunlight. Baits are best used within a year of opening.

    5 of 5 stars  Ant no more
    By J in Melbourne, Florida on 04/16/2015

    Termidor SC was recommended to me by a professional pest control service and I tried it and it was the only product I will ever use from now on.

  • 3 of 5 stars  Food for Raccoons
    By Gerald in Fort Thomas, KY on 09/04/2016

    The Termidore SC chemical spray and the Maxforce gel worked (I assume) but the Advance 375A granules put out in the bait traps didn't last one night - the raccoons found them all and ate the tasty contents, destroying some of the traps. I thought perhaps the damn raccoons would henceforth die, so after one week I put down the remainder of the bottle in the remaining traps and, you guessed it, they did it again. So the Advance 375A is just food for raccoons, nothing more. Last year I put down the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait and did not notice any of the traps violated, so I will likely buy that again. Any suggestions?

  • 5 of 5 stars  So Far, So Good
    By Mark in Sacramento, CA on 09/19/2016

    The products that arrived were exactly as advertised. I have completed the treatment and have not seen any ants (or any other bugs) since. It has only been a week or so, but I am hopeful that this kit replaces my 16 year relationship with Clarks.

QHow many months of treatment does the Outdoor Ant Kit include?

AThere is not a set number of months that the kit will last as it will depend on the level of ant activity in your yard, how many colonies there are that need to be eliminated, and how quickly they consume the bait you put down. The Termidor SC concentrate bottle that comes in the kit will make 25 gallons of finished solution, so depending on how big your home is to spray around the foundation will depend on how many months worth of treatment you will receive from it.

QCan I use the Outdoor Ant Kit in my vegetable garden?
I have carpenter ants in my garden.


The Outdoor Ant Kit should be applied around the edible garden and the Termidor SC should be applied only up against the structure 10 feet away from the vegetable garden.

QWhich ant control product should I use underneath my citrus trees?
They are small black ants and our trees are near our house and they keep coming into our house.


Best solution would be our Outdoor Ant Kit. †The stations would be used with the bait under the trees and the Taurus SC would be used as a perimeter spray around the home, 1 to 2 feet up and out. †

QCan Termidor SC be used in a tow-behind tank sprayer?
I need to cover large areas of my yard to kill ants.


Since Termidor SC is not labeled to be used in lawns, this application†would not be recommended. †It could only be used in a tow behind if you are spraying directly around the foundation of the home, 1 to 2 feet up and out. †For ants in the yard, the baits in the Outdoor Ant Kit would be your better treatment option.

QCan I use this kit for control of ants on my fig trees?
They seem to know when a fig is ripe and attack it before I can pick them. What product can l use.


If the ants are clearly attracted to the figs, then a sweet or liquid ant bait would imitate the sweet food they are seeking. The Maxforce Quantum Ant Bait that is in the Outdoor Ant Kit would be a great choice to use in stations near the tree to provide a food source before they are able to get to the fruit. Taurus SC should only be used around the structure, however, it will help with general ant control in the area.
