How Advance Ant Bait Works
Advance kills the ants with a slow-acting insecticide called abamectin, which attacks the pest's nervous system and causes paralysis and death. However, this active ingredient doesn't start affecting the insect right away. It takes a while to build up in its system and to paralyze the pest, giving it time to infect other colony members. Once the bait reaches the queen, she can no longer produce eggs. She will die soon afterward, bringing an end to the colony.
Where to Use Advance Carpenter Ant Bait
Controlling carpeting ants is easy when you use Advance ant bait in and around residences and businesses. It's formulated for indoor and outdoor use and targets carpenter ants as they chew into wood siding, eaves, decks and other structures. Although it works well as a standalone product, it can provide even better results when it's combined with Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel, especially when the gels are used with bait plate stations. Bait stations keep the bait fresh and protected from rain and contaminates.
Setting granular ant bait in the same location also helps to target ants that may not be in the mood to feed on a sugar gel. Some application sites for use include:
- Food-storage areas
- Golf courses
- Hospitals (nonpatient areas)
Though Advance is labeled as a carpenter ant bait, it is also effective at controlling other ant species indoors and outdoors. It kills invasive fire ants in lawns and odorous house ants in kitchens. Not only does it target acrobat ants and the Argentine species but also crazy ants, which infiltrate electronics and appliances and cause them to malfunction. It also controls other ant species such as harvester, big-headed and pharaoh.

- Contains a slow-acting ingredient to eliminate the colony
- Targets numerous ant species such as fire and carpenter
- Works well indoors and outdoors to control ant infestations
- Can be applied alone or with other ant bait gels and granules
- Controls ant populations within 24 hours
