These baits work great on the ants in California (L.A.). Our ants attacked the baits right away! I think they eat the whole bait in just one day, so you need to replace them often. But they're really low in price, so that's ok...The large trails around the house are either completely gone in 2 days, or the few that are still there have very little traffic. The ingredient (Indoxacarb) attacks slowly, so it allows time to take the bait to the Queen. It affects the ants nerve sodium channels and they can become paralyzed. I recommend to wear gloves when handling the baits though...and we keep the baits away from pets.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Doesn't attract ants at all!
Ants don't want to even touch this stuff... I tried to get a piece from inside and put it on the ant's trail - they avoid it like a plague.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RUSS They don't say what ants it kills, does not kill carpenter ants.
Bought product and noticed it does not specify what ants it kills. I contacted them and maxattrax does not kill carpenter ants. I think that is why reviews vary so much. Home Depot is probably big enough to force them to specify what ants the product kills. Quite important to know.

I truly wanted this Hot Shot ant bait to work, based on reading a few positive reviews here, but it did nothing for the ants in my case. Seeing a long trail of ants in my garage, I put out two of the baits directly in their path. That was on Thursday night. By Sunday, I saw no difference-- the ants were continuing to march across and (mostly) around the baits. There is something about the plastic that they seem to avoid (and other reviewers have noted this). I then put out two more bait containers along the trail, for a total of four. Now an entire week has passed and the ants still march around (and some over) the baits! Apparently they have no interest in whatever "bait" is inside. I've even observed a few ants go inside the bait, but no effect. This is NOT a reliable product and I cannot recommend it at ll.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LJ The only product that works!!!
OMG, this is the best. i used other products and it seems like the ants would get there friend to come over to get drunk on the orther prodicts. I used Hot Shot and OMG, if you place the baits as recommended on the package and clean the area, it works within a day. And if you replace them within the time recommended, you will not have a problem with ants. Also, make sure they are not carpenter ants, i don't think this works on them.
