Carpenter Ants had declared war on my kitchen years ago, and despite my best efforts with other ant-killer and ant-bait products, their unstoppable force had ravaged my countertops mostly undeterred. This year, I decided it was time to get serious on these little suckers. The stellar reviews on this product overcame my frugal instincts, so I ponied up $25 for a tiny tube of liquid and crossed my fingers.
I squirted 3 small pools of bait in 3 corners of our kitchen, and it quickly became apparent that this bait was actually liquid ant crack. Within an hour or two they had frantically sucked up every last microdrop. So I squirted more puddles and then went to bed. Something miraculous must have happened that night. Because in the morning there was half-eaten bait puddles and a single dead ant. And NOTHING else. It was like the ant rapture had occurred. Or like the gel had teleported them to another dimension. Or perhaps atomized them into dust. And I didn't even use 1/8th of the tube.
In the months following, not a single ant has dared poke its head in my kitchen again. With the bitter, years-long conflict suddenly stilled by the ant equivalent of an atomic bomb, my soul is now conflicted. On one hand, the absence of invaders from my sovereign land has been delightfully peaceful. But on the other hand, I almost wish they would come back for Round 2, after all, I've still got 7/8ths of the tube sitting here just waiting to be unleashed.
Maybe I'll buy an ant farm.
So I bought it and followed the directions. Hmm... No luck for two weeks, the ants completely ignored the granules. But then my dad made a discovery. He had put a bowl of cherries on the counter top. And he went to munch on them and discovered they were covered in carpenter ants! So I put the cherries in a bowl with the ant poison and waited. After about 2 or 3 days we still had lots of ants visiting the bowl, but not quite as many as before. After two weeks they had noticeably decreased, but there were still a number present. So I went digging more on the web to figure out why they were eating the cherries, but not the poison as other peoples review suggested they would do. This is what I found out. Carpenter ants like either protein or sugar, but not both at the same time. So some weeks they will only look for protein, hence why they were raiding my cat's tuna dish. But my timing on buying the product was bad, because the day I set the poison out, the carpenter ants switched back to looking for sugar. Hence my dad's cherry bowl covered with ants. The "Advance Carpenter Ant Bait" was ignored because it is protein based.Read more ›
While waiting for the Postal Service to deliver this Maxforce Gel my wife went out and bought some simple bait traps labeled for carpenter ants. The ants couldn't have cared less.
Having ordered on June 22nd I happily received the product on June 27th. In waiting we had noticed the carpenter ants were most active in seeking nourishment between 10pm and midnight so around 8pm I started placing small drops in places I thought were close to their possible home. No more than half an hour later I hit the jackpot: behind our countertop is a small gap - the ants were coming up from there.
I started beading down some lines and making tall dime size piles of the Maxforce Gel at the top edge of our countertop next to the wall. One big guy found it and had his fill. By 9:30pm we had six of them feeding. At 10:30 word among the ant nest had spread and we were hosting a carpenter ant crack party. (I'm posting two customer photos) I think we counted 28 of them. Everybody brought a friend as there were little ones gorging too. My wife and I had a good time watching them as if it was a Discovery Channel special.
Apparently I throw one hell of a party:
It's been nearly three weeks since that crazy night and we haven't seen one since. Good bye and good riddance you little *bleeps*!
As I mentioned I had also bought a granular product but am unable to comment on it's effectiveness as I never had a chance to use it. The carpenter ants absolutely loved the Maxforce Gel. ...So do I.
-The gel is clear with a slight yellow tint.Read more ›
