Carpenter Ant Control Kit Review

Amazon ImageThe Carpenter Ant Control Kit reviewed consists of 2 products so as to be doubly effective to get rid of carpenter ants.

The products are:

1. Advance 375a Select Granular Ant Bait – 8 oz.

2. Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel-1 Tube

Have you used ant baits on carpenter ants in the past and found that  ants were not interested? It might be that you were using the right bait but at the wrong time. Carpenter ants have alternating appetites. They alternate between eating protein and sugar, but not both at the same time. This is the reason why some people are unsuccessful with the baits they use for carpenter ants. It is also why some carpenter ant bait seems to be ineffective and receive negative reviews. These periods of eating either protein or sugar can last up to several weeks. So if you put out a sugary bait when they are in the mood for protein, it will be virtually useless.

This kit combination is not simply a marketing gimmick to sell you more products. Whether your ants are in the mood for protein or sugar, this kit has you covered with both the protein based Advance Granular Ant Bait and the sugar based Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel. You might start to see some effects in 3-5 days, with initially more ants swarming to the bait and then a reduction in their number as the poison starts to take effect. Don’t fret if you still see ants running around after a week. Be patient, it will usually take 2 to 4 weeks for all the ants to be killed.

Both employ slow-acting ant poisons which are designed to be carried back to the ant nest in order to kill the whole colony. If you have a problem with carpenter ants and have not had success with your bait, it’s time to switch!

Finally, you can simply buy this kit and have it shipped quickly as one item or buy the 2 items separately, which could save a few bucks. Personally if I had a problem with carpenter ants, I would just get whatever shipped with Amazon Prime in order to deal with them asap.
