Pest management professionals can use Antopia 6 Bait Station in conjunction with Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait as part of their ant management program.

Many tramp ant species have developed symbiotic relationships with hemipteran plant pests. These insects produce ‘honeydew,’ a nutrient-rich liquid food source for the ant colony. In return, the ant provides protection from predators.

Liquid baits that mimic honeydew give food to foragers in a form that they can take back to the colony. This strategy is only effective if the toxic agent in the bait works slowly; this means that using baits with a low toxicity is essential, IPCP reports. The foraging ants will bring the bait back to the nest before the toxin takes effect. This will ultimately impact the entire colony, especially by killing the queen and larvae.

The Antopia 6 Bait Station is a weather-tolerant, locking, bait dispensing system with several unique patented features. It is a translucent station with a green ABS cover and a view port that allows users to more easily assess the current volume of the bait in the station. The Antopia 6 Bait Station employs Feeding Float Technology making it easy for ants to access the bait and return safely to their nests where they share the bait with the colony.

The Antopia 6 Bait Station is designed to work best with Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait®, a ‘green chemistry’ product that has been tested extensively on Argentine ants with significant results (details are available at www.antcafe.com).
