Product details of Pest Control Optigard Ant Gel Bait, 30 Gram
Optigard Ant Gel Bait offers unparalleled control of a broad spectrum of ants, including Argentine, carpenter, ghost and other nuisance ant species, by ingestion and transfer of the bait, providing efficacy against the entire colony, not just the workers. Optigard Ant Gel Bait doesn’t have the unsightly yellowish-brown color or the inconsistent, runny consistency of other baits. It’s transparent at application and stays clear throughout treatment. It has little to no odor and doesn’t stain treated surfaces. And its thicker consistency allows it to hold its shape without running.
Because of the unique action of its active ingredient, thiamethoxam, Optigard Ant Gel Bait is readily transferred throughout the colony after its initial ingestion. Packaged in a ready-to-use, 30-gram syringe, Optigard Ant Gel Bait may be applied in spots up to one gram in cracks and crevices where ants nest and forage.
Once ingested by foraging workers, Optigard Ant Gel Bait doesn’t kill immediately. Instead, it is designed to take advantage of ant trophallaxis, or exchange of fluids. Ants that feed on the gel return to the nest and transfer the bait to their nest-mates, working to eliminate the entire colony, including queens. Tests show that a reduction in workers will be apparent in two to three days, with complete colony elimination occurring within a week or more.
Optigard Ant Gel Bait has a non-repellent formula that has demonstrated excellent ingestion activity and extended palatability among a wide variety of ants. Studies show Optigard Ant Gel Bait retains its palatability for more than two full weeks after baiting,up to twice as long as other products.
Furthermore, ants will continue to feed on Optigard Ant Gel Bait even after the active ingredient becomes concentrated as the product dries out over time. The transfer effect is diminished because the ants die more quickly, but they’re never repelled from feeding.
