BEST ANSWER: Apply using the syringe applicator or a bait injector.
Apply bait in cracks, crevices, corners and out-of-theway
places, such as under and behind kitchen appliances
and baseboards, under sinks, around window
and door frames, pipes and water heater and in the
attic, crawl space and garage. Place multiple application
spots of gel where ants are observed actively
foraging or entering the structure. If the area to be
treated has been recently treated with insecticide,
thoroughly clean the area before applying this bait.
Do not spray insecticide over gel as this may cause
the bait to become repellent. Do not apply to areas
that are routinely washed (such as countertops) as
bait may be removed or diluted and spread onto
the surface.
