Our most common pest problem call this sunny season, is “we have ants”. There are many different ant species in Colorado from small sugar ants swarming a fallen piece of dog food to large and destructive carpenter ants emerging out of the rear wooden deck.
IPM of Northern Colorado’s ant control process; consists of repellant insecticide sprays and ant bait products manufactured by Bayer Corporation. Some insects such as pavement ants will emerge from colonies underneath the pavement or cement where they are well protected from most spray insecticides. Baits are carried back to the nest directly, or consumed and shared with the colony where the spray cannot reach.
Maxforce Complete is a commercial bait product that will eliminate the colony from the inside out. The active ingredient is a slow acting insect growth regulator, which is specifically engineered for insect biology. The ants will essentially run out of gas in a few days as the active ingredient blocks the transfer of phosphate. A tablespoon of granular bait will eliminate a large angry red ant hill; while it would take a gallon bucket full of bait to reach the LD50 for a small animal. Highly effective and safe for use around people and pets.
