How does Optigard Ant Bait Gel work?

Ants that feed on the gel will return to their nest and transfer the bait to the queen and their young, thereby killing the queen, the young and the entire colony.

How long will it take to see results?

Dead ants should begin to appear within days after ants have begun feeding on the bait. Substantial reduction in ants foraging should be seen within a few days to a week. For effective management of certain ant species such as Argentine ant, reduction of food sources (such as honeydew-producing insects like aphids) near entry points around the structure is critical. Long term control is most effectively obtained with a combination of methods for ant management.

How long will the Bait remain attractive to ants before I need to reapply?

Attractiveness of the bait to ants is enhanced by its high moisture retention properties and the bait will remain attractive for at least two weeks following bait deployment.

How To Apply Optigard Ant Bait Gel:

Bait Application

This product can be applied using the syringe applicator or a bait injector. Apply bait in cracks, crevices, corners and out of the way places, such as under and behind kitchen appliances and baseboards, under sinks, around window and door frames, pipes and water heater and in the attic, crawl space and garage. Place multiple application spots of gel where ants are observed actively foraging or entering the structure. If the area to be treated has been recently treated with insecticide, thoroughly clean the area before applying this bait.

Do not spray insecticide over gel as this may cause the bait to become repellent. Do not apply to areas that are routinely washed (such as counter tops) as bait may be removed or diluted and spread onto the surface. Indoor Use Visually inspect for the presence of ants and place this product in areas where ants are seen.

Optimal locations for bait placement are the active points of entry and areas with potential high moisture including: wall voids, cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms, under sinks, window sills and door frames, screen vents, attics, crawl spaces and garages. In areas of excessive foraging activity, place bait in several locations near the point of entry.

  • Do not place bait in areas that are routinely washed, as washing will remove or dilute bait.
  • Do not treat food preparation surfaces.
  • During follow up visits inspect placements and reapply as needed.
