It's that time of year again. You know the one we all love for the warm weather, but dread because of ants and other bugs?
Yeah, ABOUT THAT!
This year I decided to be proactive about keeping those small critters out by using the all new Combat ant killing bait strip. That's right! Combat has a new product out with us in mind! Afterall we can't have a summer party with ants all around can we?
Let me be honest, my home is a little older and every year we battle ants. It never fails, it never skips a year, it's just the reality of our house. Sure, I probably need to start putting stuff out before I start seeing them again, but the way the weather has been this year, there's no telling if it's going to be 90 degrees out today and snowing tomorrow. so you never know when the right time to put anything out is. Again, just the truth...
With that being said, I'm super excited that Combat keeps me at the front of their vision because my relaxation is only because they make products that work!
The same killing power that you see in Combat gels is now found in a new discreet design- bait strips.
These bait strips have an adhesive backing that makes it easy to hide out of sight and out of the reach of little hands.
They are easy to apply and leave no mess. The unique gel bait formula cantains food and water that ants seek. They contain fipronil, which is a fast acting insecticide. It begins killing within hours once the insect has come in to contact with the bait. Now that's super fast and exactly what I need!
So what makes it any different than everything else you see on the market? I'm glad you asked!
Not only does the adhesive backing hide it out of sight so nobody notices your ant problem, it's designed to kill the nest and colony that are beyond your reach. It doesn't just attack the ants you can see, like other sprays and insecticides. This attacks the source of all your ant problems and will help resolve them all together!
All you have to do is place the bait strips wherever you have seen the ants. For maximum effectiveness, all bait strips should be placed out at the same time and replaced once the bait has been consumed or as indicated on the package. (My package says 1 month)
- One of the fastest active ingredients you can buy to kill ants.
- Insect nerve poison kills ants by contact or ingestion.
- New discreet design starts killing ants in hours so you can see immediate results.
- High secondary colony kill. Kills ants in a domino effect, eliminating the source of the infestation.
- Easy-to-apply to hard-to-reach areas.
These bait strips are doing wonders for my home. I don't see nearly as many ants as I normally do and they have only been out for about a week so that is amazing in itself. The only thing I can say that I would change is the adhesive backing. Yes it's there and yes some of my baits are holding strong with it. I have had a few baits not hold with the adhesive backing though. This wasn't much of a problem for me because I just sat them on the counter or in the window seal.
You can purchase combat killing bait strips at most major retailers, including walmart, target, and more.
The bait strips are available in 5 count ant strips and 10 count roach varieties.
