Hawkeye Ant Bait Gel starts working in 5-6 hours and wipes a nest in a week. Hawkeye ant bait attracts most sweet seeking ants.

The most important part of ant control is locating areas of activity and seeing what species of ants you have in your home. Nests can often be located in appliances, pot plants, walls, and ceilings making it sometimes difficult to locate them. Inspect infested areas of your property carefully to determine overall ant infestation levels, nesting areas and locations where ants are foraging and or ant trails are seen.

Select the most appropriate application points to place the ant strip applicator.

Outdoor application

Outdoors they can be placed near/along the ant trails and indoors they can be placed behind or under equipment or appliances, under tables, within framing of tables or furniture, around sinks, within or near garbage collection areas, attics, crawl spaces, and cracks and crevices where ants are trailing.

Apply the ant gel on marked area on the applicator strips without destroying ants natural trailing behaviour.
If you have a large infestation, place the ant strip applicators about 3-5 inches apart in high activity areas.

Indoor application

With indoor application, ant gel can also be applied to cracks and crevices along walls or floors.

Reapply the bait if all the bait has been taken and there are still ant trials or activity around.

Do not apply Hawkeye Ant Gel on bench tops or surface areas where food preps are done or near dishes where it can get in contact with food.

Do not apply the bait where pets and children can access it.

Hawkeye Ant Gel is safe to use around humans and pets when applied according to the product label.

Some other tips to prevent ant infestation inside homes:

Clean benchtops and floors of food waste and spills quickly

Follow ant trails and try to find out where the ant trails are coming from and going to. Then seal up these cracks and crevices around house making it harder for them to get back in.

Store food in airtight containers.

Is Hawkeye Ant Gel suitable for controlling both outdoor and indoor ant infestations?

Yes, Hawkeye can be applied indoors as well as outdoors on ant applicator strips that are easy to apply, peel off and can be re-used again.

What should I do if the ants do not feed on the bait?

It could just be positioning of the ant gel strips. Peel them off and put them at another location in that case. Make sure to put them besides the ant trail and not in the middle of their trails.

How can I prevent ant infestation inside my home?

To prevent ant infestations inside the home, keep the plants that harbour sucking pests like aphids, mealy bugs, white flies trimmed and away from the walls of your house. Ants farm these plant pests that secrete honeydew for them and after a certain population level starts getting into homes especially kitchen areas in search of more food. We recommend treating the problem from the outside, that is especially important to help with the indoor ant infestation. Inspect your property on the outside and apply Hawkeye ant gel in ant nesting areas and ant trails outside. If the population is very high treat the outdoor ant trails with Hawkeye Ant Spray and indoors with Hawkeye Flea, Ant and Roach Spray as per the label directions. Keep your indoors and outdoors clear of food waste and spills and bins fully closed.

Hawkeye Ant Gel is a concentrated formulation and therefore you do not need huge amounts of bait to kill a nest. One 15g tube is sufficient to kill 1-2 average sized ant nests

It is not usually necessary to empty kitchen cabinets or cover food preparation surfaces before applying Hawkeye Ant Bait. Always place the strips beside the ant trail and not in the middle of the trail to make it more convenient for them to take it back to the nest.
