Item Specifics

The Combat Max Ant Killing Gel comes in a child resistant container.  It is a gel bait that kills the entire colony of ants.  This product provides fast control of ants within 3 to 5 days.  It is ready to use directly from the syringe, and has very fast and easy application.  Its high water content encourages faster feeding, so that it starts killing within the hour.

May Take a Couple of Weeks to Kill the Colony

Combat Max Ant Killing Gel can kill ants within an hours time, but it may take a lot longer for the whole colony to get wiped Out.  The ants will take the poison to their colony and eventually when the queen is killed, the whole colony will die.  A customer explains, "This is the only ant poison that I have found effective on many different types of ants.  You have to be patient and let them invade the house while they eat up the gel.  If you know where they are coming in, that is the place to squirt the gel.  I usually put several lumps of it in a row in their path.  They carry it back to the nest and feed it to the queen and larva.  It can take up to a week for them to finally stop coming back for seconds."

Dries Fast

Some people found that this gel dried very quickly.  It may depend on the weather and time of year when you apply it.  A customer explains, "This particular purchase dried out very quickly when I put it out. Works but have to put it out more frequently because of the fast drying."
