    Worked great in less than 48 hrs

    By Pete on 07/07/2020

    I used the Advion gel inside 2 weeks ago - my brother told me to try it out. It got rid of about 80% of the ants. I then ordered the indoor/outdoor kid as I was impressed by the Advion gel he gave me. I put down the granular bait around the outside - not in the provided bait stations - just a little here, a little there. I have had issues in the past with squirrels tearing up bait stations. Then I sprayed a gallon of the Advion concentrate around the outside. Within 2 days I see no more inside ants, not even stragglers. I put a little Max gel in my pantry, not much. Great stuff!

    Some of it works well

    By Wanbing on 08/30/2019

    The ants in our yard seems not interested in the protein baits in bait station. Maybe they have problem to find them. The Taurus spray seems to work. However, it seems does not last long. After a few days, the ants come out and ruin my lemon trees again by raising white flies there.

    Kit received, where are the instructions?

    By Brad on 02/23/2024

    The kit was received as expected. However, without DYI instructions or suggested links to training videos for each of the products in the kit. I sent in an online request asking for links to “how to” documentation or video. I received an acknowledgment for my request. To date, have not received a follow up. Planning on calling today, hoping to get help.

    Good afternoon, We apologize that you did not receive the instructions. The instructions for the kit can be found on the product page, under details. Below are the instructions for the kit; How to Apply Outdoor/Indoor Ant Kit INDOORS STEP 1 - BAIT INDOORS - Bait Plate Stations, Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, Advion Ant Bait Gel *Handle bait stations with clean, dry hands or wear gloves. Avoid handling bait with bare hands as this may make baits less palatable. *Your kit includes a set of 12 bait station bases, 12 lids, and 12 glue dots. Pull apart the stacks to separate the components. Each base is a tray with two ridged channels so that you can use two different baits in each bait plate station. *To apply the Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, first unscrew the top to remove the seal under the cap. Then flip open the “spoon” side of the cap and use a dedicated or disposable tool such as a plastic spoon to scoop a small amount of the bait granules into each station. Use 0.5 oz. (1 Tablespoon) of bait in one side only of each bait plate station you plan to set out. (Keep the other channel empty for the gel bait.) *Be sure to store bait in a cool, dry place with the lid securely closed. *To apply the Advion Ant Bait Gel, first gently unscrew the solid blue tip of the tube you would like to use. Replace this tip with one of the long clear or blue reusable tips included with your kit. Use either a bait gun or the included plastic plunger to gently expel the gel from the tube, similar to using a syringe. (You may need to pull back gently on the plunger to prevent over-application.) Place a spot of bait about the size of a pea in the other side of each bait plate stations you plan to use. *When you are done applying the Advion Ant Bait Gel, replace the long plastic tip with the smaller blue solid tip to store bait. *After you have filled your bait plate station trays, snap a lid onto each one by lining up the U-shaped tab and the round tab with the corresponding parts in the tray. Gently press the edges of the lid until it is firmly snapped into the tray, being careful not to tilt the trays, which may cause granule bait to spill. It is not necessary to remove the perforated tab from the bait plate station lids. *You should place bait in areas where ant activity has been noticed. It is important to avoid purposefully putting the bait in the middle of an ant trail or onto the ants themselves: this will make the ants avoid the bait and make the baiting ineffective. Instead, put the bait near ant activity or next to ant trails. Some examples of places where the bait can be placed are: In kitchen cabinets and on counter tops. Behind, next to, and under the stove. Near sinks or drains Around pipes, cords, and cables that come out of the wall. Behind and under bathroom fixtures. Around the medicine cabinet and vanity. *You should check the bait placements once a week and replenish as needed until ant activity has ceased. Be sure to continue reapplying bait as long as the ants accept it! *Store baits in a dry, temperate area, out of direct sunlight. Baits are best used within a year of opening. *Bait stations may be wiped clean and washed with warm water for reuse later. Do not use fragrant cleaners, as this may make future bait applications unattractive. STEP 2 - SPRAY INDOORS - Temprid Ready Spray *Temprid Ready Spray is a ready-to-use spray that has two active ingredients to provide both quick knockdown and lasting residual control. The second non-repellent active ingredient will have effects similar to those of your ant baits. Although this may take a little more time to start killing colonies, it is a great companion and backup for when ants may not be actively foraging for food. Temprid also helps to keep new colonies of ants and many other pests from invading the structure. *Always shake Temprid Ready Spray well before use. *Temprid Ready Spray can be used with the wide spray nozzle or with the included black nozzle and crack and crevice straw. We recommend applying Temprid Ready Spray with the straw to make more detailed applications. If you have trouble inserting the straw, you may need a pair of needle-nosed pliers to force the straw into the nozzle. (Be sure to do this while the tip is off the can.) *Temprid Ready Spray uses bag-on-valve technology for no VOC exposure, 360 degree application, reduced waste, and a powerful 10-12 foot reach. Hold the can 12 to 18 inches from the target surface. *Apply Temprid Ready Spray to cracks and crevices where ants are likely to enter the structure or to trail, such as around window frames and door frames, where pipes and other utilities enter the structure, in corners, under appliances, and in any other spots where ants may have access into the structure. Avoid spraying areas where baits are or will be placed. *Keep other people and pets out of the treatment area until the spray has dried. *Temprid Ready Spray is water-based and will not damage or stain surfaces where water alone causes no damage. *Do not spray Temprid Ready Spray or other insecticides directly on top of bait placements or in the same spot where you plan to apply baits. *Temprid Ready Spray may be reapplied if needed, but wait at least 7 to 10 Days between applications. STEP 3 - SPRAY OUTDOORS - Advion WDG *Advion WDG is a water-dispersable granule that must be diluted with water and applied with a sprayer. *Advion WDG 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. *Advion WDG comes in single dose packets make measuring simple. Add 2 packets per gallon of water to cover 1,000 square feet. *To create your mixture, fill your sprayer tank 1/3 - 1/2 with water, open your packet of Advion WDG, pour in, 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 Advion WDG solution around the foundation of the structure, creating a barrier up onto the building itself and out onto the ground around the perimeter of the home. The band of the spray can go up and out as much as you would like as long as the total band does not exceed 10 feet. 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 Advion WDG 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. *Store concentrate out of direct sunlight and in a temperate area for up to 3 years. STEP 4 - BAIT OUTDOORS - Ants No More Bait Stations, Maxforce Complete Granular Ant Bait, Antack Liquid 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 Antack Liquid 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 2 oz. of bait). You should not fill the granules all the way to the top of the compartment to prevent excess condensation buildup. *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. *Add Antack Liquid Ant Bait to the 2nd compartment. You can pour directly from the bottle by twisting the top open and gently squeezing the liquid into the compartment. Do not overfill station. Replenish bait as needed. *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. *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. *Store baits in a dry, temperate area, out of direct sunlight. Baits are best used within a year of opening.
