Tackle ant problems with leading bait solutions

Not only is ant control a mainstay service for most pest control companies, but it is increasing for a majority of companies across the country.1 Syngenta offers two proven gel bait solutions for effective ant control, so pest management professionals can choose what best fits their business needs.

The #1 ant bait on the market offers broad-spectrum control

Powered by a MetaActive™ compound, which attacks insects’ nervous systems to result in paralysis and death, Advion® Ant gel bait is the leading ant gel bait in the market. It features a formulation that reflects the changing feeding preferences of different ants, from sweet foods to proteins to oils.

Advion Ant also features:

  • Control of 19 key ant species, more than any other ant gel bait on the market
  • A clear, non-staining, no-odor formulation
  • A gel that locks in moisture, maintaining its integrity for extended periods of time
  • A label for indoor and outdoor use, including applications in food-handling establishments, as directed by the product label

An ant bait you can count on

Optigard® Ant gel bait controls ant workers, brood and queens to ensure full colony elimination with an attractive, sugar-based gel matrix. Some gel baits can be too gooey, which makes it more difficult for ants to transport to the colony. However, Optigard Ant contains a clear gel formulation with a consistency that makes it easy for ants to consume and carry back to the colony to share with nest mates.

Other features of Optigard Cockroach include:
  • An attractive formula for a wide variety of ant species, including Argentine, carpenter, odorous house and ghost ants
  • The ability to apply indoors (e.g., under sinks, behind baseboards, etc.) and outdoors
  • Non-repellent and transferable; controls workers, brood and queens
