Maxforce Ant Bait Gel is effective against Argentine, Odorous House, Ghost, Pavement, Cornfield, and Little Black Ants. Ants will carry the bait back to the nest and destroy the colony. You will see fewer ants in 3-5 days. Maxforce Ant Bait Gel provides for the sugar feeding needs of ants. If the ants are foraging for protein as well, it is recommended that a protein-based bait be used in conjunction with the gel bait. Box of 4/ 27 gram tubes.
