Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is a protein-based bait. Carpenter Ants will forage and feed on two types of bait, a sugar-based bait and a protein-based bait. Maxforce Fleet Bait is a sugar-based bait. It would provide a complementary solution to baiting carpenter ants on a sugar cycle. Place out honey or a sweet product to see if they are going for a sugar-based product if in doubt of the current cycle the carpenter ants are on.
Advance Carpenter Ant Bait
Advance Carpenter Bait combines the active ingredient abamectin with a mixture of foods in a bait combo. Abamectin is a delayed action insecticide, giving the foraging-worker ants a chance to get it back to the queen(s) of the colony. This bait also reduces the worker population, which can cause a reduction and elimination of the ant colony. Abamectin B1 interferes with the ant's nervous system; it starts affecting the ant colony within 24 hours.
Do not spray a repellent chemical on or near this product as with all insect baits. The use of a non-repellent pesticide works well.

The Advance Carpenter Ant bait is essentially a protein-based bait. Ants will choose either a sugar-based bait or a protein-based bait. We suggest using a sugar-based bait such as Maxforce Fleet Ant Gel in combination with the Advance Carpenter Bait.
