Filling the Cracks: How Combat Max Ant Killing Gel Keeps Ants Out

Especially in warmer months, an ant problem can ruin the fun, but it doesn’t have to with Combat Max Ant Killing Gel. The bait kills the ants at the source, so you won’t have to worry about a return of your insect problem. In fact, the gel allows you to effectively combat the problem without much hassle. How does the gel work?

Place the Gel in the Right Spot

Once you’ve got your gel, you’ll notice it comes in a large syringe. What you’ll want to do is place the gel in any cracks and crevices you’ve noticed ants coming from or leaving through. It doesn’t fill in these spaces, though, so you will need caulk if you want to do that. Some of the recommended places for the gel are:

  • Under drawers
  • Behind sinks
  • Near trash cans
  • Behind appliances and furniture
  • Near toilets

Remember to keep the gel away from food and any eating utensils.

Contact or Ingestion: It Just Works

The gel contains Fipronil, a fast-acting insecticide. The nervous system poison is known as one of the most powerful ant poisons and can start working just a few hours after you place the gel. In fact, the gel works well with a variety of ant species, including:

  • Carpenter
  • Cornfield
  • White Footed
  • Thief
  • Pharaoh
  • Pavement
  • Little Black
  • Odorous House

The poison is effective through physical contact as well as ingestion. Even if your ants don’t actually eat the stuff, the fact they contacted the gel can be more than enough.

Taking It Back to the Colony

Of course, you’ve only really ever seen worker ants running around. The queen and larvae are buried deep underground, making it difficult to really stop the problem entirely. However, Combat gel gets right to the source. Worker ants will either take chunks of bait or be contaminated with poison when they return to the colony. The gel’s poison will spread like wildfire throughout the colony and will eventually kill the queen and her larvae.

See Results in Five Days or Less

With such a broad reach, you might think the gel takes a month to work, but you’ll start to see results in as little as three days or as much as five. The colony will be vanquished, and you can even reapply the gel every month just to be safe. Plus, it works just as well outdoors (adjacent to structures) as it does indoors.

Why suffer through an ant infestation when you can have the problem under control in just a few days? With Combat Max Ant Killing Gel, you can skip the exterminator and get back to enjoying your home.
