                  The following are many of the most frequently asked questions about Syngenta's Advion Ant gel bait insecticide. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact your Syngenta territory manager.

                  How do I apply Advion Ant gel bait?
                  Advion Ant gel bait is labeled for crack-and-crevice applications indoors, as well as applications to entry points outdoors. The blue cap should be removed from the syringe prior to application. If desired, the blue applicator tip included in the package may be used to apply the gel in smaller cracks and crevices. A small dot or line of gel is sufficient for these applications. Bait may also be applied in a commercially available refillable bait station.

                  What is the difference between Advion Ant gel bait and Advion Ant bait arena?
                  In addition to having different formulations, the Advion Ant gel bait and Advion Ant bait arena attract ants differently. Certain species prefer a higher sugar content, while others prefer lipids and protein. The gel contains more carbohydrate (sugar) content, whereas the arena contains more protein content. Additionally, the arena contains bait within a plastic bait station.

                  The products also differ in the ant species they control:

                  • Advion Ant gel bait is effective at killing pharaoh ants, foraging red imported fire ants and harvester ants. For more complete control, make additional treatments of products labeled for outdoor nest control of these species.

                  • Advion Ant bait arena is not labeled for carpenter ants.


                  Why isn't Advion Ant gel bait working?
                  Advion Ant gel bait works on many species of protein-feeding ants, oil-feeding ants and sweet-feeding ants. However, the degree of success can be influenced by time of year, which can directly influence ant-feeding preferences. Depending on what the ant colony needs (proteins, lipids or carbohydrates) at the time, the foraging ants can switch their feeding targets.

                  If ants aren't immediately responding to the bait, we recommend using another ant bait like Optigard® Ant gel bait or Advion Ant bait arena, which provide different types of nutrients and attractants. It is also recommended to follow these best practices:

                  • Ensure the gel bait has not been contaminated by repellent insecticides, dirt, nicotine, gasoline or other contaminants

                  • Place gel bait as close to active ant foraging trails as possible

                  • Apply appropriate quantities of gel bait to control the infestation

                    • If ants are consuming all the bait, but ant activity continues, additional bait and/or other formulations should be considered

                  • Reduce or remove competing food sources, such as pet food


                  What is the shelf life of Advion Ant gel bait?
                  The shelf life of any product is largely dependent upon storage conditions. Ideal storage conditions are indoors with minimal temperature and humidity fluctuations. In these conditions, Advion Ant gel bait can last up to five years.
