Formulated specially for carpenter ants, Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait uses a combination of highly attractive inert ingredients to attract carpenter ants. The product uses Fipronil, a broad label insecticide with a delayed action of kill in order give worker ants enough time to transfer the bait to their colonies for effective control.

Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel

Bayer's Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait provides fast control of carpenter ants in just 3 to 5 days. Though its method of control is rather slow than contact kill insecticides, Maxforce offers a control solution that targets the root of all ant infestations - ant colonies. Using a powerful combination of attractive ingredients and a slow-acting active ingredient, Maxforce eliminates carpenter ants by the colony. Foraging ants harvest the bait and the active ingredient is transferred to colony members including the queen. When the queen dies, so too does the colony.

Why Should You Use?

Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel uses food grade ingredients with high acceptance rates to carpenter ants.

Q. Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel ?
A.  Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel is a bait product formulated to take advantage of ant trophallaxis, which is the transfer of food or fluid from mouth to mouth. Through trophallaxis, worker ants eat the bait while foraging, then feed it to the rest of the colony. Then the larvae digest the solid bait and produce a liquid containing the Fipronil that is fed to the rest of the colony and queens.

Q. carpenter ant baits?
A.  Hello, Carpenter ants tend to feed in cycles in different locations. The only thing you can do is try applying the product in different locations. Also, use about a dime size amount in varying locations such as windows, backboards, under sinks, behind alliances, etc. Because they feed in cycles, they may just be finding food in different locations. Please also make sure that there are no other sources of food for the ants.
