Attract and kill. One trick to enhance performance of a liquid concentrate is to bait within the treated area. This will increase the number of ants that contact the treated surface, as well as the duration of time they stay on the surface. The combination of bait and non-repellent will reach deep into the colony.

Having said that, don’t lure them inside if they aren’t there. When a colony is nesting on the exterior of the structure, it is important to limit the food sources on the interior, including the use of baits. When a highly attractive food source is found within a structure, the increased level of activity can alarm your customer.
