Wilson® ANT OUT®
Ant Bait Gel

Are invading ants bugging the heck out of you? Don’t let it happen. Defend your home with Wilson ANT OUT Ant Bait Gel to eliminate ants and ant colonies. It comes in a syringe containing a sugary substance that attracts ants, along with a slow-acting ant killer (boron). In this case slow is good, because the ants take the substance and the poison back to the colony, where they share it with the young, other ants and the queen. They do this again and again, until not only individual ants but the entire colony are eliminated within a period of 7 days.

Frequently asked questions about Wilson ANT OUT Ant Bait Gel

Wilson ANT OUT Ant Bait Gel comes in a syringe. The syringe contains a sugary gel that attracts ants. You inject the gel from the syringe into the bait station or in protected cracks and crevices, where there is ant activity. The gel does not kill right away, rather it is a slow-acting ant nest destroyer. The ants carry the poison back to the colony, where they infect other ants and the queen. The gel is attractive to them so they come back again and again to feed on it, eventually introducing the poison to the entire colony, until it is eliminated. It usually takes 7 days to infect a colony.

You must place the gel and bait stations in areas that are not readily accessible to children and pets. If you think the area to be treated might be accessible to children and pets, we recommend using ANT OUT Ant Killer Dust.

You’ll notice that there is no bait left because the station is translucent. Once the gel has been consumed by the ants, refill the bait station.

Once applied, the ANT OUT Ant Bait Gel can be effective for an extended period of time until it dries out and it is no longer attractive to ants. If it dries, you can clean the station with hot water and, then, refill the bait station if the problem persists.

Yes, you can use ANT OUT Ant & Roach Killer to kill carpenter ants. But, we always suggest contacting a professional exterminator for carpenter ant infestations because these are very tenacious insects that can threaten the structure of a dwelling. As well, non-professionals have a great deal of difficulty identifying and locating carpenter ant nests.

Gel can be used in two ways, in bait stations and as a crack and crevice device. Bait stations are particularly useful when ants are present or near food cabinets, sinks, stoves, refrigerators, food storage areas, attics, garages, basements, storage areas and closets. To use bait stations, simply fill them as directed.
