DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Always read label directions and precautions prior to use. It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Attracts and Kills All Common Household Ants Including: Argentine ants, ghost ants, cornfield ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, acrobat ants, white footed ants, little black ants, odorous house ants, rover ants, crazy ants, big headed ants, and other sweet feeding ants except carpenter, fire and harvester ants.
For Use in and Around: Homes, apartments, storage areas, and mobile homes.
Controlling and Eliminating Ants: First ants will come in large numbers, but soon disappear. This product is formulated to allow worker ants to consume the product and survive long enough to carry the liquid back to the nest and deliver a dose to the rest of the colony. Monitor the placements and ensure there is always a fresh supply of Maggie’s Farm Ant Killer at each placement.
Indoor Use: Apply Maggie’s Farm Ant Killer to small pieces of cardboard, paper or foil, or in purpose built bait stations and place product in areas inaccessible to children and pets, where ants are seen, such as the edges of sinks, window sills, under food cabinets, along floors and baseboards and in corners. Use plenty of bait placements, the more bait placements the better. Since invading ants usually have outdoor nesting sites, it often helps to put the product outside, close to where ants are found entering the structure. Ants typically follow defined trails from the nest to food or water. Placing Maggie’s Farm Ant Killer close to these trails will improve control.
Outdoor Use: Locate areas around the building where ants are seen trailing. Apply Maggie’s Farm Ant Killer in areas inaccessible to children and pets. For a perimeter defense system, place bait stations against the foundation where the trails are found. Spacing the bait stations every 5 to 10 feet will provide the best results. Check the bait stations regularly for activity. Remember ants will feed on Maggie’s Farm Ant Killer and carry the bait back to the rest of the colony. Heavy infestations may require several bait placement refills.
Environmental Hazards: Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high-water mark. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwaters or rinsate.
this stuff works!
the ants in my kitchen were making me crazy. and i found this and it worked no more ants!
Finally a solution to all the ants on my deck. Works very well.
Love how you can see it working
I have an annual summer ant problem and this is my way to win the war! I think they are Pharaoh ants, but they're so tiny I can't identify them. I love the syrup because I can see them feeding. I put small paper plates out with dollops of the syrup in areas where I think the ants are entering. By the next morning, there are tons of ants encircling the dollops. But by day 3 they are gone!
best ant-control product I've found
This stuff is great! Very effective---it works within days. Easy to apply away from pets, and it doesn't make a mess.
