PLEASE NOTE: This product was formally named Xstinguish Argentine Ant Bait – it is the same bait; the same formulation, simply a change of name.
325grams. Contains 0.1g/kg Fipronil in the form of a paste bait.
This ant bait has a protein base, which is attractive to Argentine ants and other protein seeking ants (ants that prefer dead insects, rubbish bins, compost heaps, etc instead of jams, sugars and other sweet things). Vacuum packed in cartridges which require a caulking gun for application. One tube will cover approximately 1/4 acre of flat land. With landscaping etc, this area reduces accordingly. Generally for an average house/property 1-2 tubes are required. For exterior use only.
Insert cartridge in a caulking gun and squeeze small amounts of bait at regular intervals – between 1.5-2.5 metres depending on the density of the ant population. Treat all areas and use the entire cartridge/s at the same time – it doesn’t keep well after it has been opened and ants will avoid the bait once they start to die as they will connect the deaths to the recent food source. Treatment can be complimented by a barrier treatment of either Biforce or X-it Ant around the perimeter of the house to keep the ants out. Read the label before use and follow the safety instructions provided.
Protein seeking ants – particularly Argentine Ants and Darwin Ants
