The Antopia R2 Ant Bait station contains many patented features unique to the Antopia station. In addition to being a weather tolerant, large quantity bait station dispenser, the Antopia R2 contains a heavy duty green cover which protects the internal reservoir from weed whackers and also protects the bait from UV light. The patented green cover on the Antopia R2 Ant Bait Station allows the user to check bait levels without removing it, and it also blends in with any garden or yard application. The Antopia R2 Ant Bait Station uses Feeding Float Technology (FFT) which makes it easier for ants to access the bait and ensures they exit the station safely to bring the bait back to the colony.
ANTOPIA R2 is designed to hold 7 ounces of liquid, gel or granular bait in a spill-resistant configuration. However, if spill resistance is not a concern, ANTOPIA R2 will hold up to 14 ounces of bait. ANTOPIA R2 is built strong for multi-season use and cost effectiveness.
For best results place stations in shaded areas or create shade for the bait station. Avoid placing bait station where it will receive direct sunlight whenever possible.
For use around structures: The number of bait stations to use will vary with the type of ant and the size of the colony. For initial placement, place one bait station every fifty feet around the structure to be treated. If any of the bait stations are emptied in less than a week, double the initial placement. Replace baits as needed until feeding activity ceases. The preparations below will help to prevent damage to the bait station. To Activate and Place the Antopia® Bait Station Loosen the soil in the spot where you are going to place the station to a width of about 3" and a depth of about 7" with a garden trowel or small shovel. Remove seal at the end of the entry tube to expose the bait station entryway. Place the anchor into the soil with a clockwise turning motion until the entryway is level with the soil. If you encounter difficulty in seating the bait station properly, remove it and loosen the soil more thoroughly, then repeat the anchoring process. Alternatively, dig a small hole to a depth of 7" place the station in the hole, so that the entryway is level with the adjacent ground, and replace the soil.
Q: I bought several of these units, but am uncertain of how to remove the seal to the entry point. All I see there is a plastic angular channel. There does not appear to be any seal over it. HELP!
A: You will want to open the side of the white piece, should have white cap that unscrews?
