Bait station to control ant species

Bayer has launched a new palatable ant bait which is now available to control all major ant species in the UK.

This ant bait consists of sugar and honey combined with the active ingredient imidacloprid forming part of the special bait matrix which encourages the ants to feed on it and take the bait back to the colony. Colony eradication can be expected within 7-14 days after treatment, depending on the size of the infestation.

Available in an insecticidal bait station, Bayer said that Maxforce Pushbox offers proven control over all main ant species, including Black garden ants, Pharaoh ants, Argentine ants, and Ghost ants.

Tim Peeling, product manager at Bayer Environmental Science (pictured), said "controlling ants can be challenging due to high customer expectations and therefore it is important pest managers have a product available to them that they trust to eradicate the nest quickly, without call-backs. He adds that as Maxforce Pushbox comes in a ready to use sealed bait box it makes the product extremely convenient and easy to use. All pest managers need to do is break the seal and place the bait station where ant activity can be seen,” he said. “The insecticide contains the highly palatable Maxforce Quantum formulation, which is proven to offer highly effective, rapid control over ants. This proven-formulation is very palatable and offers long term control."
