Granular Ant Baits

Granular Ant Baits – Granular ant baits are designed to be carried back to the ant colony and fed to the larval ants as these are the only members of the ant colony which can consume solid foods.  They turn the food into a liquid that is then shared with the other ant members, including the queens.  Once the queens die, the colony collapses.  The disadvantage of granular baits is that the bait can be discarded once it is taken back to the colony by the workers that are handling the food that is brought back by foraging workers.  So, just because the bait is disappearing, doesn’t mean the bait is being consumed.  Some of these baits are very effective when spread out over large areas, such as for the control of Red Imported Fire Ants.  Please read and follow all pesticide labeling.
