Advion Ant Gel Bait Best Product Ever Made!

Advion Ant Gel Bait


This is by far the best product that I have ever used. The attractive ability is unsurpassed! It took a little over a week, but the ant population has diminished to practically nill. I am sure that the one area that I made the application has effected multiple colonies. Careful handling and placement of course is important to promote safety of family and pets, but the effectiveness of this product is unsurpassed. Thank you for your prompt service!

ADVION ant bait gel is specifically formulated to be tasty to all major species of ants. Advion ant gel contains the new active ingredient, Indoxacarb, a powerful, nonrepellent insecticide. The slight delay in death caused by Indoxacarb, encourages ants to eat the bait and return to the nest site to share the bait with other ants, eventually killing the entire colony. Use of Advion will help eliminate ants within days of application.

  • Active Ingredient:  Indoxacarb 0.05%

Advance Termite Bait Stations and Termite Control

What does that mean in regards to poison being bait?

Are you perhaps saying that it is bait and poison mixed together?

Are you saying it is 99% termite food, and 1% poison?

Are you saying that there is a slight chance that termites could choke to death chewing this substance, thus making it deadly to them?
If I were to ask for a link or a model # identifying exactly what to purchase to KILL TERMITES & Their entire colony, what item(s) would you refer me to?



http://www.epestsolutions.com/advance-termite-replacement-monitors-and-wood.html  these are the pieces that are inside the stations, it only contains cellulose that will attract them, will not kill them


http://www.epestsolutions.com/advance-termite-bait-cartridges-6-pack.html  this portion replaces the white portion in the upper link.  This is considered the poison. and is only used when you have termites in the monitors.

Please let me know if I can assist you any further.

Advance Termite Bait Stations and Bait: How do they work?

Advance Termite Bait Stations and Bait:  How do they work?



Hi. I would like to purchase Termite Poison and the things you stick in the
ground for the poison to go into. I am confused as to ‘bait’ versus ‘poison’. I
want the termites to take the poison back to their colony and all DIE. What do I
buy to make that happen?

Advance Termite Biat Kits


Are you referring to the Advance Termite System?  There are bait stations, then inside they have termite inspection cartridges or attractant, once you see termite activity inside the stations then you would remove the TIC and install the Termite Bait / Poison.  The Best Place to start is a kit, either 10 or 20 monitors depends on the area you need to cover, the kits come with everything you need stations are complete and ready to go in the ground, then they also include the bait / poison that you will only use when you have termite activity in the stations.

You can also just buy monitors and spider tool to open the stations if you want to wait to buy the poison.

Hope this helps and I can always be available to speak with you over the phone if you are still needing some guidance.

Thief Ant: Recommendations for Control of the Thief Ant

Thief Ant


Looking for recommendations for Thief Ant Control

It is that time of year to start thinking about ant control before it gets out of hand in your home or office.

We always make the statement know your enemy, so really the more you know about how ants work and think the better we all are.  We can examine the Thief Ant and take a look at their nest characteristics, feeding preferences and most importantly control methods.


Taurus SC Ant Control Solutions

Having the correct products for Thief Ant Control is important, so think about using professional pest control products available at ePestSolutions.com for your ant Control Needs.

Nest site/characteristics: Thief ant colonies are relatively small and contain a few hundred to several thousand workers with many queens. Thief ants commonly nest close to other species of ants. Flights of swarmers begin in June and end in late fall. Indoors, thief ants nest in small crevices, woodwork and masonry. These ants forage in set trails. Their behavior is similar to Pharaoh ants. Outdoor ants are found in exposed soil or under objects, in trash, rotten wood and tree cavities. Thief ants commonly enter structures during hot, dry weather.

Feeding Preferences: Thief ants prefer high-protein foods, but will feed on sweets. They feed on meats, bread crumbs, fruit, animal fats, oils, nuts, pet foods, and dairy products. Outdoors, thief ants feed on almost any organic matter, including insects, honeydew, seeds and germinating seeds.

Control: Locate thief ant nests. Follow the trail of foraging workers back from their food source. Inspect for other ant species that thief ants may be raiding.

  • Dust in the voids outside of outside ground-floor walls with insecticide dust, such as Drione or Tempo, or inject voids with Premise Foam.
  • For perimeter treatment, use Premise,Tempo Suspend or DeltaGuard G.
  • Bait with Maxforce Ant Killer Bait Stations and/or Maxforce Granular Insect Bait.

I mix this with permethrin for horse flies and it works great.  Better than anything I’ve ever tried and when you own horses you try everything.

Time to Apply Your Pre-Emergent Stop Weeds in Their Tracks

It is time to start thinking about applying your pre-emergent to your lawns to stop those broadleaf and grassy weeds from being able to take over your lawn.  I know that I personally want to be the envy of the neighborhood and you cannot have that if you’re yard in covered in weeds and other problems.



So start the year off right and be preventative, applying a pre-emergent will do just that; get you ahead of the game.  A pre-emergent is a chemical that can be wither in granular form or liquid concentrate that you mix with water and applied to prevent unwanted growth from appearing in your lawn.  The Pre-emergent does not kill the weed only stops its ability to grow.  But for it to be effective every year you need to apply a pre-emergent to prevent the seeds from germinating.  When you apply, it will only work on controlling them if it is applied prior to the plant germinating.  So this needs to be done early spring.  But it should not be applied to early or it will not work as long throughout the season as you would like and you will end up with weeds anyway.

It should be applied around March 15 and September 15, these are the 2 dates to get the best control and have the most effectiveness of the pre-emergent.  This will help to the weeds from making any appearance.

Applying it in the winter will also help prevent the winter weeds from germinating, because as we know especially here in the south we have weeds all year long!

Once the soil temperature starts to reach 50 degrees or above, most major weeds will start to emerge.

Prodiamine Weed Control

Chemical I like to look for in a pre-emergent is Prodiamine which is in products called Barricade and Prodiamine by Quali-Pro.  These are available in both granules and liquid.  Prodiamine is broadleaf and grassy weed control, and can be used for crabgrass in both fall and spring.

Prodiamine 4L pre-emergent broadleaf and grassy weed control in a convenient liquid formula.  Easy to tank mix and spray and is effective again Annual Bluegrass.

Three Ways to Prevent Swallow Nests

Reposting this great information, they did not have share buttons one emails

Three Ways to Prevent Swallow Nests

Before you know it the swallows will return to make their mark on your customer’s homes and businesses. These beautiful little birds can make an ugly mess on any overhang-type structure such as eaves, porch roofs, and underneath decks. Bird Barrier offers three different ways to repel the birds. All are safe and don’t impact the birds themselves.

Mud Swallows generally nest in the 90 degree angle where an exterior wall meets an overhang. They build nests from mud, and while they are an impressive feat, the mud and droppings from the birds create quite a mess on the building and the ground. The rule-of-thumb is that their corner must be eliminated, and the deterrent must keep them out of the protected area they desire.
Bird Barrier offers three products that will prevent Swallows from building their mud nests; StealthNet, BirdSlide and Bird-Shock Flex-Track.
Learn how to use these products for Swallow nest prevention.
As a reminder, swallows are a federally-protected species, and completed nests may not be disturbed at any time between February 15 and September 1 (without a special permit), so you must take preventative measures quickly before our little feathered friends make a mess of your roost!
