Advion Ant Bait Gel is an innovative technology that can be used in a variety of sensitive situations for effective ant control. It contains indoxacarb, a unique active ingredient which is bio-activated to its highly insecticidal form by the ant’s metabolism, balancing targeted ant control and environmental impact.

Advion is designed to fit all ant feeding preferences. Whatever the species or the season, it remains highly palatable and provides reliable, broad-spectrum ant control.

How Advion Ant Bait Gel Works

Advion Ant Bait Gel takes advantage of the natural behavior of ants. Foraging worker ants are attracted to the sweet formula of the bait. After consuming the bait, the foraging ants will return to the nest and share the bait with the rest of the colony, including the queen(s). By ingesting the active ingredient Indoxacarb the ant’s nervous system is disrupted, ultimately ending in death.

Indoxacarb is an oxadiazine pesticide originally manufactured and patented by DuPont. Since Indoxacarb is the only chemical in its class, it offers laboratory-tested benefits that other pesticides simply cannot duplicate. For starters, Indoxacarb remains active even after digestion so it can be passed along to other insects through bait sharing. It is the first pest control bait that scientists have found to remain active after it has been transferred twice after the first lethal dose. Passing poison like this from one insect to another is known as horizontal transfer.

Key Benefits
  • Innovative and powerful tool for broad-spectrum ant control
  • Thorough control of the ant colony
  • The translucent, odorless, non-staining gel formulation maintains its integrity for extended periods
  • Adapted to a variety of use sites: residential, commercial, industrial, public and institutional, indoors and outdoors

How to Use

Unscrew the blue tip that comes on the tube of gel. Replace with the enclosed long application tip to assist in applying gel bait directly into crack and crevices. Remove and clean the application tip after use, cleaning as needed, and replace with the closed cap before storing to keep gel from drying.

Advion ant gel should be applied as spots of gel or small lines of gel.

  1. Placements of spots or lines of gel should be close to active foraging trails, nest sites, or to areas known to be active.
  2. Apply approximately 1/4″ in. diameter spots (about the size of a pea).
  3. Apply lines of ADVION ant bait gel of approximately 1/8″ wide and 2″ long; up to 3″ long for highly active foraging trails.
  4. Apply as many placements as possible to active trails or foraging areas without disrupting the natural behavior of the ants.
  5. Advion ant bait gel may be used effectively in ant bait stations.
Do not disturb the natural behavior of trailing ants or foraging ants, placements should be made NEAR the ants, but not on them or in the middle of the trail. By disrupting their normal behavior, bait avoidance may occur.


Indoor applications can include cracks and crevices; along walls or floors, in and around furniture and cabinetry, behind or under appliances, around sinks, within or near garbage collection areas, attics and crawl spaces. Inspect applications periodically for consumption/activity and apply additional bait as needed. Do not apply to surfaces that food contacts or to areas that are routinely washed, such as food preparation surfaces.

Do not apply Advion Ant Bait Gel to surfaces where the temperature exceeds 120-130 degrees F because this could cause the bait to liquefy and lose effectiveness.


Advion Ant Bait Gel may be applied to pest entry sites such as along windows, doors, between construction elements, sewer areas, adjacent trees which ants are using as a nesting site, along walls, garbage holding areas, or other places acting as an ant nesting site. Inspect applications periodically for consumption/activity and apply additional bait as needed.

Extreme heat or cold, direct sunlight and water may reduce the residual effectiveness. Apply Gel outdoors into bait stations to protect bait from dust, rain, and sunlight.

Each 30 gram tube of Advion Ant Bait Gel yields approximately 30 bait placements. Each box of four tubes yields approximately 120 bait placements.

Extra Tips

  • Store at room temperature, out of direct sunlight.
  • Once a tube is opened, it should be used within 6 months for best results.
  • Remember that different species of ants forage at different times of day, and colony sizes can greatly vary.
  • Bait will dry up quickly if used on porous surfaces such as paper, concrete, or cardboard. Use a less porous surface such as bait plate stations, if needed.
  • Do not use bait in the same areas as residual repellent sprays or where there may be residue from harsh cleaning products.
  • Do not spray products on top of bait, as this may cause the bait to be less palatable.
  • Avoid bait placements in areas exposed to air currents, such as in front of vents, as this will cause the bait to dry out more quickly.
  • It is always recommended to use a protein bait, such as Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, in conjunction with a sweet bait such as Advion Ant Bait Gel.

Questions & Answers

How long does it take for the ants to die?

Advion Ant Bait Gel kills by transfer. The transfer effect can take minutes to hours. it can take up to 21 days to start to see a huge difference in population.

My dog ate some Advion Ant Bait, will it hurt her?

We recommend that you contact your veterinarian. In most cases, an animal would have to eat very large quantities of gel for there to be any problem. The product label and the MSDS are always available on the our Instructions page if you need to contact your veterinarian. In the future, be sure to apply to the gel in small dots directly into cracks and crevices, so that the ants will have easy access to the gel and your pet will not.

How do I remove and clean areas where gel has been applied?

To remove old Advion Gel you can first try hot soapy water. If that does not work vegetable oil takes it right up.

  1. “It’s so funny to watch them go bonkers over this gel!” says my mom as she puts a small dot ofantis ant bait into an ants nest. The minute they touch it, their instincts take over and the entire colony leaves with only one goal: getting back home safe – or at least trying not too!

    It’s clear and doesn’t damage surfaces? I was happy to find this on Amazon because the exterminator would not sell it! He probably just wants a cut from every treatment.
    The product arrived in new condition, so now we’re good for pest control emergencies too 🙂
