Vanquish Argentine is very effective ant bait in the form of a pale green paste. Vanquish Argentine is available in 325g cartridges which are vacuum packed. The cartridges require the use of a caulking gun.
Vanquish Argentine will control and even eradicate colonies of Argentine ants and some other species of ants. Eradication depends on the whole colony being treated at once.

The application rate of Vanquish Argentine is 3kg/hectare so a 325g cartridge is enough to treat 1100m2 or 2 average house sections. Small amounts of bait are squeezed out at regular intervals of 2 meters onto the ground or can be put into 75mm pieces of hose or irrigation tube. Best put in shady places to help against evaporation. Baiting is only necessary outside as it will draw all ants to it. The larger the area that is baited the more successful the baiting program will be. Keep other animals away from the treatment area for 24 hours. No harm will come to them if they eat it but you will have to re-bait. Once the vacuum bag has been opened the bait has only a short shelf life – refrigeration will help to some degree.
Be sure to apply sufficient Vanquish Argentine bait initially. Ants can become bait shy if it is used intermittently. So why not get you neighbours involved and treat the whole street in one go! Discounted prices apply to bulk purchases - call us now for discounted prices.
The active ingredient in Vanquish Argentine is Fipronil at a rate of 0.1g/kg, the same active ingredient found in Frontline flea control for cats and dogs. Vanquish Argentine should not harm humans or animals through accidental contact or ingestion.
