Advance 375A Ant Bait

Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait is an easy-to-apply bait with a protein-based formula that is designed to control infestations of common household ants which include Acrobat, Argentine, Bigheaded, Carpenter, Crazy, Field, Fire, Harvester, Little Black, Pavement, Pharaoh, Odorous House and Thief Ants among many ant species.



Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait combines the proven formula from the popular Advance Formula 1 bait and the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait, forming a lethal and vastly effective solution in ridding your ant problem. Advance 375A Select Granular Ant bait combines a mixture of various attractive ant foods along with the delayed-action insecticide, Abamectin. This insecticide works quickly and has been successfully tested to reduce the population of worker ants and can cause a dramatically quick halt in egg production resulting in the destruction of ant colonies. It is recommended to avoid use of other insecticides or sprays on or near this product.


Why Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait Is So Effective


Advance 375A Select Granular ant bait uses special proteins and carbohydrates combined with a unique corn grit matrix which entices the targeted ants to readily take the bait back to their colonies. Upon consumption of the bait, the effective active ingredient, Abamectin B1, quickly reduces populations significantly or even completely eradicates the colony..


Abamectin B1 is a GABA inhibitor which abrupts the normal functioning of the nervous system of the ant victim and begins affecting ant populations within 24 hours. This type of insecticide allows the ants enough time to return to the nest, taking the bait back to the colony where it is distributed amongst the population. Reproduction of the colony halts as a result once the queens have been eliminated and the workers, who carried the bait, die.
