Grease ants will be attracted to the sweet product and feast upon it, spreading the poison throughout their colony. With this bait, you can effectively eliminate a colony without worrying about harming your pets or other animals… Bait For Grease Ants is an all-natural bait designed to attract and kill the grease ant (we can not ship this product to Canada or the state of Texas). It is made from a mixture of food grade materials that are combined together to create a formula that will eliminate your grease ant problem. This is best used as an in-ground treatment because it works by attacking the colony as opposed to one individual. The bags include 3 grams of bait, which should be enough for about 4 applications depending on how heavy your infestation is.

Bait For Grease Ants
Grease ants are found in Florida, California and Texas. They eat and avoid sweet things, so it’s difficult to get rid of them.
Grease ants are the bane of anyone living in the southeastern United States. They’re found from Florida to California and Texas, and they love to hang out in kitchens! Grease ants are about 1/16 inch long with a brown or black coloration. You’ll often find them scurrying around on the floor or countertops, but they also like to climb up walls and windowsills. Grease ant colonies can be quite large, so it’s usually best not to disturb them unless you know what you’re doing.
Grease ants are very difficult to bait—you have to get their attention first before offering food as bait. And since grease ants eat and avoid sweet things as much as possible, there aren’t many great options for baits either.
If a termite colony has a queen, it can live up to 25 years. A male and female will mate for life.
In a typical termite colony, the queen is the longest-living member of the group. A male and female will mate for life, but only the female can lay eggs. Each egg hatches into a larva that feeds on material in its environment — like dead wood or other insects — until it grows too large to remain in its original form. After molting several times, it becomes an adult: either male or female depending upon which sex was produced by its parent(s).
Termites are social insects that live in colonies with one queen and many workers (unfertilized females) who do all of the work necessary for survival: building mud tubes between nests, gathering food (including dead wood), repairing damage caused by enemies such as ants or cockroaches (which also steal from them), etc.. They can have separate castes within their society; for example some individuals may be soldiers tasked with defending against predators while others are workers tasked with tending young larvae within chambers inside their nests made out of soil mixed with saliva secreted by glands located underneath their heads called mandibles – these glandular secretions also serve as adhesives when constructing tubes connecting different parts of long term homes built underground using dirt excavated through burrowing activity followed by moistened soil being pushed back into place above ground level where they reside beneath leaf litter containing fallen leaves from nearby trees which provide shade overhead during hot months when temperatures rise above 35 degrees Celsius***
Ants search for different foods at different times of day. Early in the morning they’re hungry for grease and protein.
Ants search for different foods at different times of day. Early in the morning, they’re hungry for grease and protein. They will also eat whatever you put down during the day, especially if you leave food out overnight. If you want to avoid an ant infestation in your home, keep all food items stored away or covered tightly with plastic wrap or tin foil after use.
Regular (or “sugar”) ants like sweet food sources, while grease ants prefer protein and fat.
- Regular (or “sugar”) ants like sweet food sources, while grease ants prefer protein and fat.
- Most baits for regular ants contain sugar or other carbohydrates, which attract the insects to the bait station and onto a sticky surface where they get trapped. These types of baits are safe for use around pets and people (except for children under six), but may not be very effective against grease ants because these insects do not eat sweets. Unlike regular ant species that have a stout structure and carry food back to their nests in their mandibles (jaws), greases ant workers scavenge on dead animals in nature, so they have a long body with no mandibles – these insects cannot carry food back to the colony!
Grease ant bait is made with boric acid, which is effective against both regular ants and termites.
Grease ants are attracted to boric acid, so it is a good bait to use. Boric acid is a natural pesticide that kills both regular ants and termites. It works by being ingested by the insect; when they eat it, boric acid dehydrates them and they die within 24 hours.
Boric acid can be used around children and pets because it is not harmful to humans if ingested in small amounts. However, if you have young children or pets that may put their hands in their mouths after touching the bait granules or contaminated surfaces (for example, food preparation areas), avoid placing baits where they are likely to come into contact with these individuals.
Boric acid bait works on both ants and termites.
Boric acid is a popular and effective bait for sugar ants. It’s also the most common pesticide used to control grease ants, though it must be used in conjunction with trapping or baiting to get the best results. If you’re trying to figure out whether boric acid will work on your particular colony of grease ants, there are some things you should know before making a purchase:
Boric acid is an effective way to kill both sugar ants and grease ants when used correctly. However, it doesn’t kill all bugs equally; some insects aren’t affected by this substance at all (or only after prolonged exposure). For example, spiders can resist boric acid and cockroaches require much higher concentrations than what most people would put in their homes for pest control purposes.
