How to Use Optigard Ant Gel Bait

Ants may not seem to be a menace but can certainly give you a tough time saving your food. Even though their entire heard could eat only 1 % of the food in the packet, once they trespass into one of your food items, you’ll have to throw the entire contents away. It pinches to be throwing away so much food.

While home remedies such as sprinkling boric acid near their nests and keeping your food items in a tub of water may help for a short span of time, the results aren’t long lasting and effective. Also, choosing ant bait from amongst the numerous options available in the market can be overwhelming, especially if you know nothing about ant baits.

The Optigard Ant Gel Bait can be a great choice to make when it comes to getting rid of ants. It’s made with a sugar gel base and works very effectively. The ants feed on the gel and return back to their nest transferring it to their queen and the other young ones, eventually killing all.


The results can be seen within a few days to a week. The Optigard Ant Gel Bait works for all species of ants. However, for some species such as the Argentine ants, it’s important to ensure that all sources of food are restricted from their nest area for example, honeydew-producing insects like aphids. For long term results professional pest control treatments work best.


One application of the Optigard Ant Gel Bait usually last for about two weeks, post which it needs to be reapplied for continued effective results.

How to apply

  • A bait injector or a syringe applicator can be used to apply the bait. Ensure the surface of application is clean and dry.
  • Apply in all crevices, corners and cracks and anywhere else where you see them foraying commonly.
  • Avoid areas that are regularly washed such as kitchen countertops since they’ll be wiped out and spread on to the surface.
  • Also avoid spraying any insecticide since it will cause the bait to become a repellent and drive the ants away.
