In the long history of humans killing ants, people have employed flip-flops, magnifying glasses, and squirt guns. And while these methods might provide temporary satisfaction, they only kill the ants that are in the immediate area. If you want to stop an ant invasion, you need a long term strategy to kill the queen or queens in the colony. As a wise man might have said, “Dead queens lay no eggs.”
If you want to fight ants and win, Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bait, Ant Killing Bait Strips, and Source Kill Ant Baits and Ant Killing Bait Strips are formulated to kill ants, queens, and colonies. Source Kill Max Ant Bait contains Fipronil, a fast-acting nerve poison which ants eat and carry back to the colony where it kills nest mates and queens. This easy-to-use bait kills ants within hours.
Source Kill Ant Baits contain a stomach poison called Hydramethylnon. When ants eat this poison, they do not die immediately, but return to the colony and expire in about 24 hours. Their contaminated little corpses pass the chemical along to the others and within a week or two, the colony is kaput.
Killing ants is as easy as opening a package of Combat baits and placing them around your home. While swinging a flip flop or shooting a squirt gun can be more fun, save it for next party when you want to rid you home of pesky houseguests.
