HSE No: 8622
Field(s) of application:
Maxforce LN Ant Killer is an insecticide for use against black ants and other ant species. The Pest Control Operator must carry out a risk assessment prior to use so that access of birds to the bait stations and ants carrying the bait is restricted. When used outdoors bait stations should be sited as close to the nest entrances as possible. This product must not be used where birds could gain access to it. When used around swimming pools the bait boxes should be placed in areas protected from splashes.
Black Garden ant (Lasius niger).
Directions for use:
General: Apply out of reach and sight of children and domestic animals. For maximum effectiveness the bait boxes with Maxforce LN Ant Killer must be placed on or near ant trails. Survey the area to be treated to identify sites of ant infestation e.g. by using bait traps. An effect on the ant population can be expected within 7 days when frequency of foragers will decline. An increase in ant activity may be seen as ants are attracted to feed on it after treatment. Most nests are eliminated within 14 days. However, under some circumstances like very high ant numbers or re-invasion, total control may take up to 2 months.
How to open the bait station
Remove from sachet and snap off the 4 “hooks” to open the ant entry holes into the bait station. Do not take the bait station apart.
Place bait station in a horizontal position where ants can be seen foraging for food. Indoors, trails are often emerging from underneath doors, windows or crack & crevices. Place one bait station per trail. In difficult situations (more than one trail) use additional bait stations.
Place bait stations in a horizontal position where ants can be seen foraging for food and where the bait station is protected from direct sun light and rain. Place one bait station per trail. In difficult situations (more than one trail) use additional bait stations.
Apply one to four stations per nest. Place bait stations next to nests where ants forage so that bait can be taken back to the nest. General ant control: Apply one to four bait stations per 5 square metres
