I have bait stations located in several areas around my kitchen. The first day was wonderful. The ants went straight to the one I placed in my pantry. We had been having a lot of trouble with them in there. This week, we bought a box of doughnuts at the grocery store and placed them on the counter. The next morning, there were ants all over them! The bait stations are still located on the counters and in the window sills. I have no idea where they came from and frankly, I am very disappointed. We had to throw away the entire box. Two dozen doughnuts!
We are sorry to hear that the stations are not performing up to your expectations. Ant baits are terrific tools to use in an ant treatment program. Unfortunately, competing food sources will always be an issue with ants choosing the bait over the new food source. It is important to know that some species of ants can have thousands or even millions of ants in one colony and it can take several weeks to eliminate them with baits. During this time all competing food sources should be kept in sealed containers. We do hope this information helps and you continue to use the stations until all of the ants are gone. Please let us know if you have any questions. We are always happy to help!
