When it comes to ant infestation, Combat gives you a range of gel and bait solutions, but bait strips are particularly hassle-free. These strips have an adhesive backing and can easily stick to home surfaces. Common placements include behind toilets, under sinks, inside cabinets and under the refrigerator. You can easily put these strips in discreet locations around your home. Combat Bait strips contain Fipronil, a poison that attacks the pests’ central nervous system and begins to take effect in just hours. How does the product work? The ants take the bait back to their colonies where other members consume the poison. Within three to five days, the entire colony is eliminated along with the queen and larvae. The strips are effective with a range of ant types, including Cornfield, Argentine, Little Black Ants, White Footed, Odorous Hours and Thief Pavement. However, strips aren’t the only solution available. How do you decide between the various Combat products? First, you need to take stock of your infestation. Consider the following situations. If you are experiencing something similar, you are probably a good candidate for the bait strips: • Major infestations are when you see ants on a daily or consistent basis. Look around your home for cracks and crevices that ants come through. If you want an effective means of tackling a larger problem, the strips will work well. • When you need fast action, these bait strips will get the job done. The ant poison starts working in just a few hours. The infected pests bring the bait back to the colony for others to feed on. Within a few days, your ant problem will be under control. • Indoor and perimeter ant control don’t often have one solution. However, the strips are also effective for outdoor use adjacent to your home. The bait successfully adheres to a multitude of surfaces. Plus, it doesn’t just kill the ants in your home. The strips are designed to eliminate the entire colony, which means no more ants invading your home. If you are looking for an effective ant control solution, Combat bait strips can get the job done right. Once your pests are under control, all you need to do is replace the strips once a month.
