Thanks to Combat and Purex Insider, I recently had the chance to review Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bait and Ant Gel. So far, I've been very pleased with the results.
We live in the country, so bugs and all that come with the territory. It's very common for pesky little critters and bugs like ants to make their way into our house. Ants in particular tend to be a problem all year round, even in the colder months and they can be very hard to control and get rid of. I have 5 children, the youngest two being two and four years old so I really don't like using spray insecticide inside the house. Because I do have small children, I have tried "natural" and "homemade" repellents but none of them have really worked.
Two of our main problem areas for ants are the living room and laundry room. These are also two areas that my youngest children are in quite often so this is where I placed some of the Combat Source Kill Max Ant Baits. These baits contain the insecticide, Fipronil, which kills most common household ants such as Argentine, Cornfield, Little Black, Odorous House, and Pavement Ants. The ants are attracted to the bait and then carry it back to their colony which in turn destroys the queen and the rest of the colony. They are easy-to-use, mess-free, need no activation, and most importantly to me- are child resistant. You simply place the bait where you have seen the ants and let it do all the work!
I used the Combat Source Kill Max Ant Killing Gel that I received in hard to reach cracks and crevices indoors where I have seen ants (and where I knew for certain the children could not reach) and outdoors where I have seen ants entering the house. Also containing the insecticide, Fipronil, it is formulated to attract ants quickly and works in 3-5 days in the same way as the baits do. The worker ants return to the colony and feed the gel (the bait) to the larvae and to the queen which eliminates the entire colony. The gel is very easy to apply, but is not child-resistant once dispensed OR in the application tube it comes in.
