Despite their size, ants can present huge problems to properties, businesses and public institutions.

Its highly palatable formula delivers rapid results and maintains integrity over longer periods for increased effectiveness. Labeled for application indoors and outdoors, Advion Ant is the solution to solve your customers’ ant problems quickly and effectively, so they can spend their time and energy on what is important to them.
The formulation of Advion Ant combines food-grade inert carriers, highly effective attractants and carbohydrates to enhance the appeal to targeted ants. Ants find Advion Ant so attractive that they have shown favor to it over other food sources. The slight delay in ant mortality, caused by the active ingredient, indoxacarb, allows ants to consume the bait and return to the nest to contaminate other ants, resulting in significant reduction in ant populations.
Advion Ant can effectively differentiate between target insects and non-target insects. The mode of action in Advion Ant targets the insect’s metabolic process by bioactivating the active ingredient, indoxacarb, within target insects.
Upon entering an insect, indoxacarb is converted into a new molecule with insecticidal properties. This process is activated specifically by the insect’s own enzymes.
The bioactivation process of Advion Ant is not as efficient within most non-target insects, so they are less likely to be affected by the product.
