Nippon Ant Killer Gel Bait
Use Nippon Ant Killer Gel Bait Liquid 25g. to control Black Ants in & around your home. Worker ants will bring the gel bait to the nest in order to feed the queen, larvae, and entire colony.
By using the worker ants to bring Nippon liquid bait into the ant nest, the entire colony can be destroyed, even if the nest is deep into the ground. This is very useful when the nest is not accessible.
Ant Control Advice
- Try to leave the feeding stations on the ant trail or pour Nippon Ant Killer Gel Bait directly on the ant trails (if the surface is non-absorbent) or in the cracks ants are coming from.
- Allow 7 to 10 days to achieve control, depending on the size of the colony and the feeding frequency.
- You should leave 3 or 4 droplets of product per control point, ideally in the late evening.
- Use it at the first signs of ant activity (usually in early spring).
- Do not disturb or kill the ants that are feeding as it is necessary to let them take the bait back to the nest.
- Top-up the missing bait once a day until the black ant activity stops. Then remove and discard all the bait stations.

Do Ant Gels Really work?
What you will find interesting if you check online reviews for Nippon or any other ant bait gels or pre-baited stations, is that people tend to give either excellent reviews, e.g. “ants are all gone“, or very bad reviews, e.g. “ants don’t go near it“.
The explanation is quite simple: there is currently no bait formulation that attracts ALL the black ant colonies. Some ant colonies will love a particular product and some others won’t. Check the picture below: Years ago we put a drop of Nippon on an ant trail and also a drop of professional ant gel that cost nearly 10 times more.
And guess what? the ants went for the much cheaper product!
In fact, this particular ant colony could have gone for the other ant gel, for both gels, or for neither of them. This is why professional pest controllers usually use a combination of treatments such as ant gel baits, but also Liquid Residual Insecticides along ant trails and inside cracks and crevices. They even use some messy-looking but very long-residual Ant Powders.
What we notice is that if your ant colony consume the bait, you are very unlikely to see this colony again, even for years after the treatment. So it is certainly worth a try.
