Tips & Strategies

To kill the nest

All Combat products contain a mixture of food that ants can’t resist mixed with a pesticide they can’t survive.

Combat produces four products which stop ant invasions safely, efficiently, and permanently: Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips, Source Kill Ant Bait, Source Kill Max Ant Bait, and Source Kill Max Ant Killing Gel.

All Combat products contain a mixture of food that ants can’t resist mixed with a pesticide they can’t survive. The bait attracts worker ants which carry the tainted food back to the colony where it is fed to the queen and her larvae. Other ants in the colony are exposed to the bait and begin dying within hours.

Combat Source Kill Ant Bait is good if you have a minor ant problem, like an occasional line of ants invading your kitchen. Source Kill Ant Bait contains a stomach poison, hydramethylnon, which allows ants to live about 24 hours. This is long enough for them to return to their colony and spread the poison to the queen, larvae, and worker ants. The entire colony will be destroyed with a week or two.

Source Kill Max Ant Bait is the product you need if you have a major ant infestation and need immediate relief. This product contains a central nervous system poison fipronil which goes to work in hours on the ants in your kitchen and the ants in the nest. The entire colony will be short-circuited within about one week.

Source Kill Max Ant Killing Gel and Ant Killing Bait Strips also contain fipronil. Source Kill Max Ant Killing Gel is similar to products used by professional exterminators. The gel is applied like caulk to cracks and crevices in foundations and around cabinets where ants enter the home. Ant Killing Bait Strips are thin bait stations with adhesive backing. These can be stuck on walls, cabinets, and joists.

Combat is effective for treating numerous species including carpenter ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, grease ants, sugar ants, and Argentine ants. With our specialized products, there isn’t an ant problem Combat cannot solve.
