Contains: 0.0526 % w/w (0.526 g/kg) fipronil
Formidor ant bait is a highly effective insecticidal gel bait used to control garden ants (Lasius niger) and Argentine ants (Linepithema humile). Fipronil's honeydew formulation is very active at a low dose by both contact and ingestion. Furthermore, it is quick and easy to use indoors and outdoors in commercial and domestic buildings.
Fipronil is a broad insecticide that works by disrupting the central nervous system of the insect.
Formidor works when ingested by ants, even in very low quantities. The sugary formula attracts the ants before they consume the active substance and bring it back to their nest to feed their brood. The ants will die in the nest a few hours after a single application.
Rate of Application
|Field of use||Application||Application time|
|In and around domestic and commercial premises||Up to 3 bait points (drops) every metre on the ant trails||As soon as you see ant activity|
Treated areas should be re-inspected after 1-2 weeks. A second application may be required if the first treatment has been totally consumed and live ants are still present after a week.
