will this work on harvester ants?

Answer

Thank you for your question. No, our product will not kill harvester ants.

how can we tell when the bait station is empty? Can't see inside of it.

Asked by Jack June 12, 2020

Answer

Thank you for your question. You will know the bait stations are empty if you no longer see ant activity around the stations or your ant activity increases. You may also turn the bait upside down and look through the access hole; you will then be able to see the "bait cake" inside.

Yes my little cat had slaped it away one after another down stairs. She did not get along with the ants.

Does it work on red or fire ants

Asked by Joe July 3, 2018

Answers

Probably not, besides you need to treat each mound or colony (like under a rock or landscape timber). There are thousands in the colony so this would be cost-prohibitive. Use a granular insecticide to treat the entire lawn, if you desire. There are dusts to sprinkle on the mound that work very well. There are fire ant baits to sprinkle on the mound that work but not as fast.

Why do ants ignor these bait stations? I've had them out for three days and they don't go in them?

Asked by kelley June 13, 2018

Answers

You need to place them near where the ant trails are. Put them right over the trail. You could place scotch tape around the edges to help the ants continue their travel into the opening; however, I've not had to do that and the species that I am controlling walk right in. I stapled the traps to the vertical outside trim where they were trailing. (they seek out dry rot) Otherwise, move the traps to different spots, but where the ants are seen. Probably you have other species; unfortunately the mfg. does not state the species that are controlled. They should do that. The liquid baits work good on so-called "sugar ants."

Can these traps be placed on kitchen counters?

Asked by Winners March 29, 2018

Answers

I really like the hotshot Ant baits. They always work very well for me. I get ants every spring and summer and find them in one of my bathrooms, in my kitchen, near my dogs food bowl and near my sliding doors going to the yard. I recommend using them with a bait station cover. They make the baits descrete and keep them away from the kids and pets. I use the TrapJak bait station covers. They work great and stick on the wall and blend in nicely so you don't notice them at all.

Does this kil goast ants

Asked by cavey September 26, 2017

Answers

I am sorry I can not answer that - the specs. online with the product will list the type of crawling ants they are developed to kill. It is a bait system which means the ant crawls in the holes on the sides and takes the bait back to their nest to the Queen ant and this kills the Queen ant which is needed to hatch more ants for the colony.

Will this kill Pharoah ants?

Asked by shopper June 8, 2017

Answers

I use them for red and black ants. When I get carpenter ants however, I get an exterminator as they can destroy property by eating foundational wood, like termites do. The product will describe the ants they kill - I live in Pittsburgh, PA and get more red ants than anything else and I use this bait product for preventative only. For an infestation, I would get a spray and read the instructions about where it is safe to spray it, which is only in placed where people and pets are not touching, as all insecticides are toxic to humans. Put these bait traps inside back door closets where your garden and grass is closer to the house, and under the kitchen sink and change them every 3 months, being careful to discard the used traps properly per instructions.

How long till the ants are gone?

Asked by Shorty March 24, 2017
6
Answers

I got them using the traps immediately (little black ants) and the ants were gone in a couple of hours and haven't returned (now in 3rd day). That's in a workshop, where they were getting into dry rot on the building's trip. If you use sprays, the traps will be ineffective because the ants need to be actively feeding and trailing back to the nest (to kill the queen). Sprays don't reach the ants in the nest or in the walls/cabinet bases, etc.

Can you put this under a gas oven and still use the oven and stove?

Asked by Peoplelove January 14, 2017

Answers

I would think they would be OK but check with your plumber as they are qualified to answer this question. The baits are plastic and heat may affect the effectiveness to the bait inside. I use them only under my sink inside the cabinet door and my back door closet nearest the back door where ants can enter from the grass nearby.

For my first pod, I helped one or two of the ants in there, and set out the trap, with the thought it would help the ants establish a trail. Not sure it was necessary, but the ants were all over it the next morning, then gone for a day, then all over it again, then gone for good. A few months later, my wife spotted some other ants in a different area. Set out another trap, and we haven't seen any ants since. Too bad I can't upload the video. The ants loved it! I have some screenshots from the video here, but the screenshots don't show the ants inside the pod. My only thought as to why it's not working for some people is maybe this is only good for some type of ants, and not others. Or, maybe the pods they have expired or were not stored properly before they were put to use. The only complaint is the dog thought it was food, because I was setting it near the dog food. Pretty sure it's not toxic to pets, but still - I did not want her near it. Maybe it could have some kind of a pet deterrent scent added to it? The dog has lost interest to the pod after a while, so we set the second pod out in the open.

While this bait may be good for the little red kitchen ants it does not work for the indoor black ants. We placed 4 traps where the ants roam and they didn't even go in for a quick look!!

Took about two or three days for this to work now indoor ants are gone. Live in North Dallas and these are the first ants attracted to food that we've had! These ants were coming in from under the sink in the Kitchen. Every morning I have 1/2 banana and leave the other 1/2 out for the next morning...but these ants starting foraging on the 1/2 eaten banana..so I moved it to the top of the frig and THEY FOUND IT! So I put a super tiny slice of banana at each corner and the ants HAD to go into the bait trap. Now after two or three days NO ANTS!

This worked incredibly well! It didn't even take 2 days, and the ants were gone. Easy to use, just put it in their trail and the magic happens. There's no odor or stickiness. Absolutely no complaints.

I put out three of these traps at two kitchen entrance doors and under the sink over two weeks ago and, as of to day, I didn’t see one single ant entering it. The manufacturer is promising a full refund if not not working, but I’m wondering who would bother asking $1.98 back? I rather take my time to warn other consumers to stay away from this product.
