Every spring and I have trouble with small ants in my bathroom. In the past, I’ve used Drax Dual and also bait stations with good results but they keep coming. What else should I do?
If you read our ANT article, you’ll learn that spraying the outside is just as important as baiting inside. Get some CYPERMETHRIN applied before it gets warm, maybe by Februaray, and if you treat using 1-2 gallons every 4-6 weeks, ants won’t be able to get inside.
Now if they do show up, change the ant bait you’ve been using to MAXFORCE GEL. It uses a different active that will infiltrate the entire nest. Drax will only get the ones that feed on it which is one of the reasons why the ants keep coming back. Maxforce Ant Gel will get the nest which is critical for long term control
