The Bottom Line

Maxforce Carpenter Ant Gel works tough on ants while only being mildly toxic for people and pets. The gel can begin to flush out a colony of ants in as little as three days. It also works best when paired with a granular bait because some ants will walk right past a gel bait, so it is best to have both. When using this product, it is best to place it near where you see ant activity and not directly in the ants’ path. This gel works fast to clean out an entire colony in as little as eight days.

Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Review

We chose Maxforce Carpenter Ant Gel because it is an effective product that works hard on carpenter ants along with many other types of ants. It’s easy to use; you can place it and watch the ant activity begin to disappear within a few days. There is only one tube and plunger per box, and if you are going to divide up the gel in the container, you might want to consider ordering extra plungers. There is enough product in the tube to place 27 pea-sized dots around your home where you have ant activity. Customers who have used Maxforce gel bait give high praise to it on review sites. These customers mention how effective it is in their home, with many saying it wiped out the ant population in about a week.
