Seasonal guide for ant control food type selection


Ants search for protein to nourish the brood.  Capitalize on this ant craving by selecting Maxforce Granular Insect Bait and/or Maxforce Bait Stations.


Ants forage for sweet honeydew, which is typically found on plants and ornamentals. Choose a bait that is high in carbohydrates, such as Maxforce FC Ant Killer Bait Gel.


Honeydew-producing insects begin to die off naturally sosweet-feeding ants will prefer Maxforce Ant Bait Gel. Maxforce Granular Insect Bait is also effective because it contains a balanced diet.


When it’s cold outside, ant activity indoors indicates a colony has located inside the heated environment. This normally means that the ants are feeding on the same foods we eat, so a balanced bait or combination of protein and sweet Maxforce Baits will work best.
