How To Help Ant Baits Work

Don’t squash any of the foraging ants or block their path to and from the bait.  Remember, you want them to carry the ant baits back to the colony.

Don’t use any ant sprays or other pesticides around the baited area.  Ants will avoid surfaces where chemicals have been sprayed and spraying may even cause ants to divide their colony into several small colonies.

Try to clean up and remove any other foods that the ants are feeding on.  It’s important that the ants find and accept the bait.  If they already have an available food source, they may not forage as much looking for other food.

Don’t use any strong cleaning products around the baited area.  These smells will interfere with the chemical trails left by the ants that help other worker ants find the bait.
