Wilson® ANT OUT®
Ant Traps

3 pack

Our Ant Traps aren’t what we would imagine a trap to be, such as a mouse trap. They’re really bait stations. A combination of sugar and proteins is placed in the trap to attract ants, along with borax, a slow-acting ant killer. Slow is important. It means that ants can take the mixture back to the colony and share it with other worker ants and the queen. Because borax is slow-acting, the original ant and other ants can return to the trap for the sugar and protein mixture and the borax and keep on sharing. Over a period of 3 to 7 days, the entire colony will be wiped out.

Frequently asked questions about Wilson ANT OUT Ant Traps

ANT OUT Ant Traps contains peanut butter and sugars that attract ants. The bait 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 bait 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. To ensure ants can enter the trap, make sure you punch all 4 holes.

Yes, when used as directed. The bait stations are in child-resistant containers. However, the bait inside the station can be harmful to humans and domestic animals. This is why, for safety’s sake, you should place the 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.

Replace the traps every 30 days during the season to continue to infect new encroaching ants.

No. The holes leading into the trap are too small for carpenter ants to get through. In any case, we 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.

Place traps indoors, where ants are seen, but also outside where ants may enter your house. Make sure you place traps 1.5 to 3 m apart and punch all 4 holes to allow ants to enter.
