BOCA RATON, FLA.—Innovative Pest Control Products has posted a new training video on the use of the ANTOPIA 6 Bait Station for “tramp ants.” Click here to view.

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. The foraging ants will bring the bait back to the nest before the toxin takes effect. This will ultimately affect 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 patented features. The translucent station features a green ABS cover and a view port that allows users to more easily assess the current volume of the bait in the station. It also employs Feeding Float Technology to make it easier 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.
