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