How Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait Works

PT brand Advance 375A select granular ant bait uses special proteins and carbohydrates combined with a unique corn grit matrix that quickly entices these "select" ants to readily take the bait back to the colony. Once the bait is consumed, the reliable active ingredient, Abamectin B1, quickly reduces populations to acceptable levels.

Abamectin B1 is a GABA inhibitor that interferes with the normal functioning of an insect's nervous system and begins affecting ant populations within 24 hours. This type of insecticide allows the ants time to take the bait back to the nest where it is distributed throughout the colony. Reproduction of the colony halts once the queens have been eliminated and the workers, who carried the bait, perish.

Target Uses

Advance 375A can be used for most common household ants that are seeking protein. Use Advance 375A in conjunction with a sweet bait such as Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel.

Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait can be used outdoors as a broadcast application around and close to the perimeter of the structure (8oz. per 1/2 acre), or on the interior inside wall voids. Do not use in areas that have been treated with insecticides or sprays. This will cause the bait to be unattractive to the ants. Always read the label.

Application Instructions

Advance can be used indoors and outdoors to control the ant population. This bait formulation provides for the ant's dietary needs while using the delayed-action insecticide Abamectin.
