Locate Ant Activity: Follow ants back to voids. Apply bait to crevices or voids where ants are active. Use up to 5 tablespoons per treatment site in a heavily traveled area.

Enlarging the void’s opening may be required.
Place bait where it will remain dry. Do Not use in serving areas while food is exposed. Do Not use in areas where food is prepared or served. Do Not contaminate kitchen utensils.
