Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel

Bayer's Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait provides fast control of carpenter ants in just 3 to 5 days. Though its method of control is rather slow than contact kill insecticides, Maxforce offers a control solution that targets the root of all ant infestations - ant colonies. Using a powerful combination of attractive ingredients and a slow-acting active ingredient, Maxforce eliminates carpenter ants by the colony. Foraging ants harvest the bait and the active ingredient is transferred to colony members including the queen. When the queen dies, so too does the colony.

5 of 5 Stars! (5/5)    Review by   Ben D  (Posted on )

I was skeptical but I was wrong!
Since nothing I knew how to use was working I got this bait kit after these reviews to get rid of a pretty significant Carpenter Ant infestation. The little buggers had four or five major entrances to the roof. When I first put the gel in the appropriate spots, the Ants seemed to go way out of their way to avoid it, and the one area where I tried the granules seemed to remain an Ant Freeway. So I thought I had wasted my money. But within two days tops, all was calm and that was a month ago. Zip since then, so this actually works!

We used to use sprays for ant problems. But sprays could only kill ants which were visible. Then we tried using ant powders for killing ants but they turned out to be messy. Then our local hardware store suggested me to Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait. But with to Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit we didn’t have to worry about any mess or about leaving any ants that were not in the area immediately. So you should try it out.

The house I live in s quite old. There are numerous holes and crack and crevices. So, in summer season I suffer from sever big ant problems. I tried various products to solve my ant problems. But nothing worked. So when my friend asked me to try Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit I bought it too. It turned out to be pretty effective. I have suggested this product to all my friends who were suffering from the same problems.

I live in an old building and my apartment developed an ant problem. I called in an exterminator and after fussing with a few things he started laying down this gel stuff. I asked him what it was and he said it was a bait gel with a slow kill poison. He ended up charging me quite a bit more money than I had expected and then informed me that he would have to come back a few more times. Well, I checked online and for a fraction of the price I could simply buy my own bait gel and that is exactly what I did. This stuff really works, the ants love it and it kills them dead without any hassle. I haven’t seen any ants since I’ve been using this stuff.

"The ant bait arrived on time and in good condition and seems to work as advertised although it does not eradicate the ants merely kills some of them."

There were so many ants in my yard, my family could not play around it. So I bought and used MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit to get rid of these ants, and later most of my yard was once again clean.

My company had been hired to renovate an old home for resale and when we got there we found the place over run with ants. In an effort to stay under budget we decided to take care of the problem ourselves. We sprayed for the ants we could see but we needed something that was sure to kill the colony. We placed some of the Maxforce Carpenter ant bait in certain areas and, in a few days, were sweeping up piles of dead ants. This stuff works and it works well, I highly recommend this bait over the store bought variety.

Carpenter Ant Bait worked really well and I highly recommend it.

Carpenter ants ate the baits and carried it back to their colony. It leaves neither residue nor any odor. I am ant free for over 4 months.

It isn’t like the other bait gels that are slow and take weeks to even start to keep the ant colony under its control and only then to start killing the carpenter ants but I was far too impatient to wait for the insecticide to start their work. I wanted something that would start working from the first day of use and kill all the ants’ in my home by the end of the same week.

In my backyard, there was so many ant colonies flowing around, destroying my grass and plants, but when I used MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit, it eliminated all the ants. I can now freely plant my backyard again, thanks to this product.

We had a pretty bad ant problem in our backyard and none of the products we bought at the store did much of anything. We tried sprays, we tried other baits, we even tried traps and nothing worked as well as this Maxforce bait. The ants went right to it, they even ignored some rotting fruit that fell from our tree. In no time at all the ants were gone and we were able to destroy the ant hill without them coming back. If you have a serious ant problem then this is definitely the right stuff for you.

PestMall did it again! I first had bee problems last year so I bought the Basic bee control kit and it nicely got rid of the bees then now i had ants problems on my backyard so I purchased one of their products, MaxForce Carpenter kit and it once again got rid of them! No more pest problems on my house ever again!

My wife wanted to try composting on our property, which, as I told her, resulted in a rather significant ant problem. Even though the compost was kept a distance from the house we started noticing ants indoors. After doing a little research on the internet, and having no luck with store bought products, we decided to try the Maxforce bait. The ants really seemed to be drawn right to it and, within a few days, we were totally ant free. This is a truly great product.

Q. MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit along with a bait staition
Is it more effective to use the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit along with a bait staition?
A.   The baits that the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit contain are easy clean up and should not create a large mess. However, if you wish to keep the baits out of site and reach from pets or children, or to protect the baits from outdoor weather conditions, we recommend that you use a bait station.

Q. Why does the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit only contain baits?
Why does the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit only contain baits? Is it still as effective without use of pesticides?
A.   Baits are effective for the control of ants, especially because they are social insects and live in a colony. The ants carry the food back to the colony, targeting them at their source. The MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit contains the Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait and the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Gel Bait

Q. Can a dying/dead Carpenter ant queen be replaced?
I've used the combo of Advance and Maxforce baits for about a week, and have seen the number of ants fall from 30-40 trying to enter the house to none, and maybe 2-3 on the wooden fence at the opposite end of the yard. What I have seen the last 3 nights is a single ant *at least* 3/4" in length, dwarfing what I considered were the big, mature female workers. I've killed this "mutant" ant each time I've seen it, fearing it might be a queen leaving the dying colony to esatblish a new colony in a new location. But I've now have seen 3 of these ants. Can a dead/dying Carpenter queen be replaced at this time of the season? Will a mature female worker morph into a queen if need be?
A.   If the colony is still active, the queen may be replaced by another candidate. Usually, there are a couple "candidates" as queens within a colony.

Q. Is there any special recommendation on how to use the Maxforce Carpenter ant bait kit?
Is there any special recommendation on how to use the Maxforce Carpenter ant bait kit? Should I use one indoors and one outdoors?
A.   Usually, for the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Kit, we recommend that you use the MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel for indoor control of ants and the Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait for outdoor control of ants, although either one is fine for control of ants indoors or outdoors.

Q. quantity use for carpenter ant control kit
How much of the Maxforce Gel plus Advance Granular is typically needed to get rid of a colony of carpenter ants. My colony is in the roof rafters, which are not accessible, but I can see the ants going up and down along a few trails on the house siding. Where best to put the stuff? Thanks much.
A.   Thank you for contacting us with your question. It is best to place the gels along the trails of the ants where ever you see them. For the Advance 375A Granulars, it is recommended to place the granular bait around the premises of the home. These are bait granulars so it will take some time for the bait poison to spread and eliminate the whole colony depending on the size of the colony. Most importantly, consistency is the key all pest treatment. Good luck!

A.   No, carpenter ant control kit is already registered in Florida. And long as it's for your own personal use.

Q. carpenter ant killer bait
thank you, and one more question before I buy: is the gel the better of the two? Should I just buy that? What quantities does it come in?

Both of the pesticides are a type of bait and has the same method of kill (bait poison), the difference will rely on where you can apply the two baits.

Gels, you can place vertically or horizontally, however you can only cover so much space because it is a gel form. The 375A granular can be spread along the ground and cover a larger range.

Therefore if you are trying to treat the perimeter of your home, using the two types of bait poison will bring you the better result. The gels come in syringe form of 27g.

Q. Carpenter Ants are now ignoring both baits! Now what?
I've successfully controlled what could have been a bad infestation inside the house by baiting outside using both the Advance granular and Max Force gel baits. I thought I hit the sweet spot in their diet because workers of all sized were gobbling up both baits. But I've noticed over the course of a week, while the number of ants on or near our tree has dwindled, the ants are now ignoring both baits. Do the ants learn these baits are bad for them?
A.   Carpenter ants feed in cycles, so bait that was attractive to them previously may not have the same effect at a later time. We recommend that you place the baits in different locations and see if they feed on them. If they do not, place them again in different areas. You may have to wait until they change their feeding cycle in order to see results.
