Choosing Your Ant Product: Bait or Gel?

When it comes to ant problems, both elimination and prevention are crucial. Finding the right product for your ant problem is critical to the success of eliminating ant infestations.

What’s the difference between ant baits and gels and which product is best for the ant invasion in your home? Below are a few facts about our ant baits and gels that will help determine which ant killing products can get rid of your ant problem.


Ant Baits:

Combat® ant baits can be used in common places where ants appear and are the perfect size to place under sinks, near trash cans, and in other areas that ants like to reside. Ants take the bait back to the nest to share with the colony as if it were food. The deadly bait is spread, killing the queen and destroying the rest of the colony.


Ant Gels:

Combat® Ant Killing Gels are for those hard-to-reach areas where ants enter the home. The gel can be applied in places such as along baseboards, under appliances, and in cracks and crevices. Once the gel is applied, the ants take it back to the nest. The gel is shared amongst the colony – killing the queen and eradicating the colony.

While both baits and gels help get rid of ants and destroy ant infestations at the source, using both products can help win the war against ants. For a full list of ant products, visit our ant products page.
