Zoëcon Professional Products: Formitrol Ant Bait Gel


June 7, 2024



Zoëcon Professional Products, a pioneer in pest control innovation, introduces its trademarked Formitrol Ant Bait Gel, designed for the immediate knockdown and long-term control of a diverse range of nuisance ants. All ants belong to a single family, Formicidae, which is why the Schaumburg, Ill.-based manufacturer chose the name Formitrol.

This innovative combination gel bait features a dual-action formula, combining the adulticide dinotefuran and Zoëcon’s pioneering insect growth regulator (IGR), S-methoprene, to break the ant life cycle. This approach ensures quick results and sustained control of the ant colony. The attractive bait palatability of Formitrol Ant Bait Gel, the company says, attracts a broad range of ants.

Formitrol Ant Bait Gel consists of a syringe-style format for easy and precise applications, for areas with both known and suspected nuisance ant activity. The Formitrol label includes odorous house ants (Tapinoma sessile), Argentine ants (Linepithema humile), little black ants (Monomorium minimum), pavement ants (Tetramorium immigrans), ghost ants (Tapinoma melanocephalum) and more than a dozen other species.

Formitrol Ant Bait Gel is labeled for both indoor and outdoor use. For excellent rotational control of numerous ant species, the company suggests pairing it with its trademarked Antack Liquid Ant Bait, which features both contact and ingestion toxicity.

About Zoëcon Professional Products

Central Life Sciences’ Zoëcon Professional Products offer insect growth regulators, adulticides and other pest management solutions to control bed bugs, cockroaches, fleas, flies, ants and other pests in both residential and commercial markets.

According to CLS’ online history, Zoëcon was founded by Dr. Carl Djerassi, where his team was able to commercially produce a group of molecules called insect growth regulators (IGRs) which revolutionized insect control by introducing a method that interferes with the development and reproduction of insects. Beginning with methoprene, and the later discovery of hydroprene and kinoprene, these compounds became the building blocks of the comprehensive Zoëcon portfolio of insect control solutions.
