When do you put out the Maxforce FC Ant Bait Stations? Before ants arrive in spring or only when you see them in your house?

We usually see ants around May 1. Do we put out the bait stations a week or two before that date or only when we see them?


Maxforce FC Ant Bait Stations are typically used when you start seeing activity of ants in the home, to provide them with a food source to take back to the rest of the colony. However many customers prefer to leave the stations out all the time, or place them around before activity is noticed for the season to have them ready for any that may find their way in. Ideally you would want to use a residual spray around the foundation of the home on the outside to help prevent any ants from ever making their way in the home. A product like Temprid FX would be great for that application and is safe for use indoors along baseboards and crevices as well if needed, and provides a slight transfer effect through the colony by touch, similar to the way the ant bait is transferred.
