Ants! Such a fascinating and annoying little creature. We’ve been having ant-problem for a year or so at home. We had tried a similar product like ARS Natural Ant Bait and it did work. I was thinking of buying the previous ant bait that we used but couldn’t find it because I had no idea of the actual name of the product. I used some keywords and Shopee recommended this instead. So I decided to try it.
When it arrived, I was supposed to do an unboxing but my dad opened it before I was in time to get my hands on it. Hence, all you get in this video will be just seeing the ants carrying the baits. It happened so quickly. Within an hour, many ants came out and carried the baits back to their nests.
It can be a little messy as the ants left some of the baits scattered outside of the container around its path. Hence, be sure to clear the area where you place the bait especially if there are food and water in the area. This is because we found quite a lot of ants that ended up in our drinking water!! You don’t want to contaminate your food with the bait as well.
The number of ants did reduce tremendously within a week. However, it didn’t totally eliminate it. Just leave the bait there and let those newbies continue carrying it to the nest. It’s almost 3 months since we place the bait in several locations. Some of the areas are cleared but some still have random ones coming in and out. At least no longer as bad.
I also did notice some of the ants are smart enough to avoid it by going around it. Just don’t give up. You just have to leave it there until it’s empty or had changed colour due to moisture. I haven’t seen them around already. They likely ended up consuming it as well. Do bear in mind that not all types of ants can be eliminated. Generally, it’s effective for those usually you found at home.
The main ingredient is Boric Acid with sugar in it as well. That’s what attracts the ants to carry the bait back to their nest.
Here’s a tip on how to use it. There are two containers in one pack. Each container has a packet of bait. You do not have to use one packet of bait for one container. Just open one packet and split them half-half into two containers. Then you will have one packet left for future use.
