For Use In
Used indoors, in cracks, crevices, hiding places or areas where carpenter ants forage for food in homes and other structures. Place in small, tight areas where foraging carpenter ants are seen or suspected (door frames, behind light switch covers and electrical outlets). Commercial, industrial and residential areas, including food and feed areas of food and feed handling establishments,
Apply gel in spots in cracks and crevices. For best results, place many spots of dabs of gel where you see ants foraging and entering the structure. The gel will stay attractive to ants for up to two weeks. Inspect gel placement and reapply as needed.
Apply dabs of gel in cracks and crevices, and anywhere you see carpenter ants foraging and/or entering the structure. Can be placed in corners of cabinets and drawers, around pipes, etc. Do not place gel where insecticides have been sprayed. This will cause the gel to be unattractive to the ants. Carpenter ants are most active between 10pm-4am. It may be necessary to look for activity during these times to know where to effectively place Maxforce gel. Always read the label!
To apply, first shake the gel tube vigorously. Due to the high-moisture content, it is normal during storage for the syringe to contain a couple of grams of liquid. Simply shake the syringe before use to help even out the consistency. (During the summer months the gel may become more watery than normal, in which case you should place the tube in a refrigerator for 24 hours.)
Next, remove the cap and depress the plunger. If necessary, during the first few placements simply pull back slightly on the plunger to prevent over-application.
Small pea sized placements should be made near ant trails or near areas where ants have been observed to forage.
Usually 3 placements will be sufficient for an average sized room with a light to moderate infestation, use more for larger areas or heavy infestations. Bait will remain effective for up to two weeks.
NOTE-Do not disturb the natural behavior of trailing ants or foraging ants. Placements should be made NEAR the ants not on them or in the middle of the trail. By disrupting their normal behavior, bait avoidance may occur.
27 gram tube yields 27 spots of bait.
