Comments about Dial Combat® Ant Killing Gel (97306):

The Combat Ant Gel is the only product that I have found that makes ants go away for a long time. You squirt a bit where they are coming in, and after an hour or so of the ants swarming, they have eaten it all and taken it back to the nest where it kills the rest of them.

The only negative is that Combat Ant Gel, in the hypodermic form, is really hard to find. It's great that you can at least special order it from ACE, but their delivery of special order products to the store has been sub par the two times that I have used it. On time, the product box looked like it had be sat on. This time, the Ant Gel was either very old or had been left in the sun along the way. One of the two boxes that I order was saturated with Gel that had leaked out of the hypodermic. I made them replace the defective item, which took about 20 minutes to do the paperwork while the store figured out how to reorder from ACE without having to eat the cost of the defective delivery.

Comments about Dial Combat® Ant Killing Gel (97306):

I purchased this after an infestation of sugar ants based on reviews on this website. The ants were crawling above our upper cabinets and we were having trouble getting an ant bait that would stick where they were.

With the Combat Ant Killing Gel, you just squeeze some out of the syringe and the ants flock to it. It will look like they're dying while eating it, but they're just gorging themselves on it.

Less than 24 hours later, I woke up to almost no ants. There were a few walking around looking drunk, but I'm sure they'll be dead within the hour.

Some tips:
We tore up the box that the syringe came in and squeezed the gel onto it for easier cleanup. This stuff is sticky.

It DOES stick to vertical surfaces, so we squeezed some into an upper corner. The ants were more likely to go to the flat surfaces though.

It looks really gross to see piles of ants eating this gel and not want to kill them yourself right away. Patience is a virtue that I do not have.

Keep out of reach of pets. Our cats seemed vaguely interested in it, so we made sure it was out of their reach.

Call around - we have three stores in our area and two of them didn't have it in stock. We'll be stocking up on it, just to have it on hand.

      Comments about Dial Combat® Ant Killing Gel (97306):

      I have had an infestation of sugar ants in my home in GA for at least two years. From the best of my knowledge, they were actually in the walls of my home. I literally tried every bait trap and lure I could find on the open market. The first time I tried Combat's Ant Killing gel, ants swarmed to it. I then proceeded to place it on the brick on the outside of my home wherever I saw an ant trail. I was shocked to see them coming out of every minute crevice in my home. Within two weeks, my ant problem of two years was over. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best ant bait on the market (at least for sugar ants - I cannot determine the effectiveness on other ants).

      Comments about Dial Combat® Ant Killing Gel (97306):

      I live in a condo and the exterminator is scheduled through our management office, covered under our monthly maintenance fee. Unfortunately, I began seeing those pesky sugar ants about 6 mos. ago and the exterminator failed to get rid of them. I had just about given up when I started researching products on-line. I tried this product and I couldn't believe how quickly it got rid of the sugar ants. I applied the product where I had seen the trail and about an hour later the spots where I had spread the gel was literally covered black with ants. I let them feast on the gel hoping they'd take it back to the nest. Later that night I went to check on them and there were NO ants left, and they had eaten most of the gel. That meant they went back to the nest. Hooray!!! They NEVER came back. It was amazing to watch the process. This product is AMAZING!!!

        I tried everything to get rid of those stubborn sugar ants and this is the only thing that has worked. They swarmed to it and were gone within days. Every time I see ants now I put it down and they are gone the next day. I highly recommend this product!

            I moved in to a new apartment that had an ant problem! I can't stand bugs of any kind and was looking for a product that would deliver quickly. This product does exactly what is says - it kills ALL ants within 3-5 days by attracting ants to the product who then go back and kill the colony. I was very impressed and would recommend this product to anyone.

              We squirted a few drops into a used milk lid and set it by the trail they were coming in at. Within 24 hours we did not see any more ants. Works great! We had tried other products, but nothing worked to totally eliminate the problem. This product did.

              Comments about Dial Combat® Ant Killing Gel (97306):

              This product WORKS! We moved in to our apartment a few months ago here in Florida, during the very hot months lots of creepy crawlers like to come in to homes where it's a bit cooler. The place hadn't been taken care of by the previous tenants, we had to repaint and clean the carpets - after all that work we found out they had just piled FOOD CRUMBS under the kitchen cabinets. We cleaned as best we could but found that we aggravated 'small black ants' or 'sugar ants' as my mother used to call them - overnight they were EVERYWHERE. I bleached the counters and floors regularly but they just kept coming back - we keep our house very clean and do not keep any sweets.

              TWO DAYS after applying this gel around the perimeter of the kitchen countertop, a bit above the refrigerator and a few drops a few inches in underneath the stove (we have two cats, we were a bit cautious about where we placed the poison) they were gone. I could tell roughly 15minutes after we set the poison quite a few ants took to it right away. We left it out for a few days just incase there were any stragglers that had been to lazy too get to it right away, but we no longer need to be ashamed when inviting friends over to our apartment and explain ourselves out of an ant infestation!

              The only reason I said it was messy cleanup is because I didn't predict the consistency of the gel to be the way it was. I thought it would be more like a hot-glue type paste but it was more of a jelly, after the first few drops you get the hang of it.

              Sorry for the long comment, but I rarely ever fill out these types of things but I am just so relieved that this stuff actually works - and it didn't just reduce the amount of ants - it eliminated them.

                I own a lot of rental property. I've used all types of ant bait and this by far is the fastest and most effective. This is like "Crack" for ants, they go crazy for it.

                I've tried a similiar gel product from Lowes (looks like peanut butter vs the clear gel)and it was a waste. I will never buy anything else for ant control. No need to call in pest control anymore.

                  This is the best stuff I have ever used. You put it in the area with ants and at first they all multiply in numbers to eat it but within an hour they are gone and stay gone for months. Hard to find but worth the hunt when you do find it.

                        This is the best ant control product I have ever used. Just put at the beginning of an ant trail and in a few minutes all the ants stop there to feast. They take the bait back to the nest and never come back. I have used Combat Ant Gel in my home and in the yard. It is much more effective than other bait traps, which the ants always seem to ignore. I was concerned about toxicity and looked up the main ingredient Fipronil on the web. I found that it has a relatively low toxicity for mammals. It is the main ingredient in Frontline, which is applied directly to your pet, and it has NOT been shown to cause cancer in rats. I have been unable to find this in stores lately, so I have been getting online through [...]

                        Excellent product! I have used this gel for the last few years and it consistently outperforms other ant colony killing products, including traps and liquids. The ants eagerly eat it and within a day or two their trail is gone. The gel clings to vertical surfaces and can be placed precisely where needed. We had a serious ant problem a few years ago and this product brought it under control. Highly recommended!
