Say Bye-Bye To Carpenter Ants With Advance Carpenter Ant Bait


A colony of Carpenter Ants can be big concern for homeowners because of the destructive nature of carpenter ants.  Carpenter ants enjoy living in wood, meaning that the foundation of your home is a perfect place to set up shop. Carpenter ants hollow out wood to form traveling tunnels to easily go migrate from their nests to their food foraging locations in your home. While doing so they can do a lot of damage, weakening the wood the holds up the structure of your home which can lead to very expensive repairs if the destruction they cause is severe enough.  Despite their destructive nature through the pile of wood shavings and crumbles they leave behind, you can give them a taste of their own medicine by causing destruction to their nest and their entire population through using an effective and proven control method that will take out carpenter ants fast. The answer? Advance Carpenter Ant Bait.


Advance Carpenter Ant bait is specially formulated to kill carpenter ants specifically and if applied, you will be astounded by just the sheer volume of ants they will kill within days of application. Advance Carpenter Ant Bait comes in granule form and it is highly recommended to use along with MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel as a powerful combination that will produce the best results. That’s because the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is more protein-based while MaxForce Carpenter Ant Bait gel is sugar-based and sweeter. This gives ants two options to choose from when foraging for food as they might be in different moods, some wanting more protein-based food while others wanting sugar based. If you have both you have, the better your chances of eliminating the entire population.Though the box says it’s a carpenter ant killer, the formula can also work for a variety of other ants and insects.


Advance Carpenter Ant Bait’s specially tested and scientifically-proven formula provides for the carpenter ant's dietary needs through it’s protein-based ingredients while also containing the delayed-action insecticide Abamectin. Abamectin is a GABA inhibitor which interferes with the normal functioning of a carpenter ants nervous system and begins affecting ant populations within 24 hours. This gives the ants an ample amount of time to take the bait back to their homes and share the bait with the rest of the colony, as well as the queen. Before long those ants crawling around your home will end up collapsing from the effects of the bait and you’ll have an ant cemetery on your hands that you can just sweep or vacuum away.


How to Apply Advance Carpenter Ant Bait


Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is easy to use and apply to your home either outdoors or indoors. Advance Carpenter Ant Bait can be applied outdoors as a broadcast application around the perimeter of your home or building or indoors by placing the bait inside wall voids or in areas where you have seen carpenter ants forage. Indoors, it is recommended to use up to 1.5 oz. of product in heavily traveled spots. It is also recommended to not use Advance Carpenter Ant Bait in areas where insecticides or sprays have been used. This will cause the bait to be unattractive to the ants and will ruin the effect of the bait. Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is best applied in small piles where ant activity is found.


Carpenter Ants tend to do most of their hunting for food at night time and typically start going on their trails about 30 minutes before sunset. If carpenter ant activity is difficult to find, try looking around your home’s structure about an hour before sunrise. Monitor bait placements closely and reapply as needed until you no longer see any carpenter ant activity. The amount of product you will need will depend on how large the carpenter ant colony is.


Advance Carpenter Ant Bait can also be used in stations such as bait plate stations to protect from the elements such as rain or dust. This can be particularly convenient when cleaning up the bait after the ants have been eliminated. easy placement and clean-up. Bait plate stations are also a wise option if you have pets or small children. These stations can protect them from getting to the bait and accidentally consuming it.

How long does it take for granule bait to kill carpenter ant?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ants have two different needs, protein and energy (sugar). The call to go find these comes at different times. This bait is protein, so if you put it down at a time when the call is "need protein", then it will be effective within a day. If not then it might have to last until this call comes. Probably within two weeks.
What is the best time to start treating for carpenter ants?
Stephanie on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The best time to start treating for Carpenter Ants, with Advance Carpenter Ant bait is when you see the carpenter ants actively foraging and moving around.
If the carpenter ants are outside on my deck area and I use this product what will happen if it rains or storms. Will the product still work?
Dolores S on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The rain will dissolve it. I always apply it in the late afternoon when ants seem to be more active at food gathering and before evening dew can get it. They will make short work of it, though, most my application is gone within an hour. Works great in this larger grit size for the red/black carpenter ants that plague me.
How is the shelf life of the product? I would like to buy in bulk and have it last more than one season. Thanks.
A shopper on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will be able to store the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait for up to 3 years, without any issues.

Keep it in a cool dry place and the lid in place.
Is this safe for pets?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2018

This can be particularly convenient when cleaning up the bait after the ants have been eliminated. easy placement and clean-up. Bait plate stations are also a wise option if you have pets or small children. These stations can protect them from getting to the bait and accidentally consuming it.
What is the advantage of Advance 375 for carpenter ants over Advance 375A which seems to be more readily available.
Tony on Jun 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Although the chemical is the same in both products, the attractant is different, the Advance Carpenter Ant bait is a shrimp based protein formulation with a larger grit size, which makes it easier to pick up for carpenter ants. Advance 375A is a smaller size bait and works better for other ants as listed on the label. When trying to control carpenter ants you will be much more successful with the carpenter ant bait, and I would recommend adding Maxforce Carpenter Ant bait to offer both attractants to the mix. https://www.solutionsstores.com/maxforce-carpenter-ant-gel

Excellent if you are patient
Don't expect immediate results, they have to carry it back to their Queen and feed her the surprise to kill the whole colony. This larger grit size over the 375A seems to attract the red/black variety that plague me. Solutions is the best price i've found, always fast shipping and they send the correct product(375 instead of the smaller 375A).

Carpenter ants problem
Very prompt delivery and reasonable price. The product is easy to use and seems to be effective after a single application.
June 3, 2014
Works Great and easy to use.
This kit includes two different types of treatment for carpenter ants and they are working as the ants are slowly disappearing. You should consider getting the MaxForce Bait Gun, which although expensive, has an extension that allows you get the bait into small areas, where you either cannot reach or do not want to reach.
