Each box contains 6 syringes (with plungers) containing 1.5 ounces of Gourmet Ant Bait Gel. Gourmet Ant Bait Gel is a blend of sugars and proteins that attracts a wide variety of ants and roaches. The active ingredient is organic and related to boric acid. It has a low toxicity level and is safe to use around children and pets. The delayed activity allows the toxicant to kill not only the workers, but also queens and the colony. The Gel Bait works more quickly than our Liquid Bait.
