Vanquish Pro Ant Bait is a new generation Ant Bait, with both protein and carbohydrate in the matrix to attract a wider variety of ants.
The wet paste has the well-known, thoroughly tested Fipronil as its active, highly-effective ingredient, at very low levels, so that the bait will find its way right back into the nest where it will do the most damage to the colony.
Vanquish Pro also retains its moisture levels for longer, allowing longer feeding time on the bait once placed in their habitat.
Directions must be followed on the label to get maximum effectiveness from Vanquish Pro. The bait is in the form of a pale green paste. Vanquish Pro is available in 325g cartridges which are vacuum packed. The cartridges require the use of a caulking gun. Vanquish Pro is effective on all ant species.
The application rate of Vanquish Pro is 3kg/hectare so a 325g cartridge is enough to treat 1100m2 or two average house sections.
Small amounts of bait are squeezed out at regular intervals of two metres onto the ground or can be put into 75mm pieces of hose or irrigation tube; it is best put in shady places to help against evaporation. Baiting is only necessary outside as it will draw all ants to it. The larger the area that is baited the more successful the baiting program will be. Keep other animals away from the treatment area for 24 hours. No harm will come to them if they eat it but you will have to re-bait. Once the vacuum bag has been opened the bait has only a short shelf life; refrigeration will help to some degree. Be sure initially to apply sufficient Vanquish Pro Bait. Ants can become bait shy if it is used intermittently. So why not get your neighbours involved and treat the whole street in one go!
The active ingredient in Vanquish Pro is Fipronil at a rate of 0.1g/kg, the same active ingredient found in flea treatment control for cats and dogs.
