A: I leave them outside (in southern California) and they last several years, usually until the plastic housing breaks. Great simple product.
A: Technically yes, but the plastic gets brittle over time. We have our feeders out all year, but to prevent broken feeders - yes, it has happened twice- when these traps break, we replace them every year.
A: We recommend replacing the Ant Guard each season.
A: No. They need to be changed once a year
A: Yes, they keep the ants out for many seasons. The plastic hooks tend to become brittle and break after a year or more. So be careful not to stress them. If they break, I just drill a hole and replace them with wire or string.
A: I have used mine for more then one season and it still worked.
A: It just keeps them from getting to feeder. No harm.
A: This product repels ants away from the feeder. It does not kill them.
A: No it doesn’t harm them, just deters. I’ve been using this for years and for the most part it does the job. I’ve had ants get around them but very rarely.
A: I have never seen dead ants underneath my feeder but this does contain a chemical deterrent that works really well for keeping ants out of the feeder. I've used this type for many years with success.
A: This product has not been tested for its effect on butterfly feeders. We recommend using this product as directed.
