RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C – Bayer Environmental Science has announced the availability of Maxforce Quantum, a new high performance, low impact, ant bait that remains effective for up to three months – from one quarterly service visit to the next. Maxforce Quantum controls many ant species, including Argentine ants, Pharaoh ants, ghost ants, black garden ants, odorous house ants, and crazy ants.
“Ant gel formulations lose a significant amount of moisture within 24 hours after being applied, making them less effective,” says Gordon Morrison, Maxforce market manager. “Maxforce Quantum is unique because it remains attractive from one quarterly service visit to the next – saving PMPs time and money.”
The key to Maxforce Quantum’s long-lasting residual lies in its hygroscopic formula, which retains and absorbs moisture. Quantum’s clear, odorless formula will remain attractive for up to three months and in many outdoor environments, the bait will actually absorb moisture, adding to its effectiveness, the company reports. Quantum delivers high performance results while maintaining the effective, low impact pest control.
Formulated with a low dose of imidacloprid, Quantum attracts ants with its Simply Irresistible bait matrix and features the exclusive Domino Effect, a delayed action kill whereby foraging ants bring the bait back to the nest and feed it to the queen(s) and larvae, ultimately eliminating entire colonies. The bait’s moisture-rich formula ensures that it will continue to deliver results long after it’s applied.
Maxforce Quantum can be applied as a crack and crevice or spot treatment from the convenient 120 gram dropper bottle. PMPs can also make their own bait stations because each case of Quantum comes with 120 Maxforce Refillable Buffet Bait Stations. These new bait stations are ideal vessels for Quantum as they further extend the attractiveness of the bait by protecting it from the elements, are easy to load and inspect, and are refillable for future use.
