Ant Control with Optigard Ant Bait and Optigard Flex will get your ant problem under control faster than you can say “under control”.

There is no doubt that ants can drive you crazy, because they seem to come out of nowhere and take over entire kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor spaces. It is like the old cartoons where the ants just carry off the entire picnic basket before you can take a bite of your chicken.

But ant control does not have to be overly complicated or stressful when you have the right products and support. There are really tons of insecticides that are labeled for ant control, sprays and baits. But believe us when we say not all are created equal.

Ant Control That’s Clearly Preferred


Clear, odorless ant gel bait with an extremely palatable formula for maximum ant control

Optigard® Ant Gel Bait insecticide, powered by the active ingredient thiamethoxam, offers unparalleled control of a broad spectrum of ants by ingestion and transfer of the clear and odorless bait for effective colony control. This is very important when it comes to ant control. You only want the ants to ingest the bait and go about their business. We usually recommend that customers using bait do not applying cleaning solutions, chemicals spray, etc near where you are trying to get the ants to pick up and ingest the 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 killing more ants and reducing customer call backs
Ants prefer Optigard Ant Gel bait: more ants are attracted, more ants ingest and more ants share the bait with the colony for a more complete kill. Better performance results in higher customer retention.
Formulation will not stain treated surfaces or give off strong odor but will hold its shape

Ants are pretty intelligent and if they sense that something is going on? If it has a strange taste or smell, you may never get them to ingest it. This is one reason we recommend using a non repellent spray when you are thinking about ant control.
