COMBAT Source Kill Max Ant Bait & Ant Gel Review & Giveaway

Let's talk ants for a minute. 
I agree, killing ants isn't usually the type of subject you see on a family blog, but let's be honest, don't most of us have to deal with ants. 
Wouldn't it be nice to give each other advice on how to do that?
As a Purex Insider, I got the chance to try two products from Combat that I would definitely recommend you try if you have been struggling with ant issues in your home.

I used the Combat Source Kill Ant Gel in the kitchen.  We always get these tiny sugar ants, and I was dying to find something that worked to get rid of ants
You put the gel near the ant trail, the ants eat it, take it back to their nest, and it kills the entire colony.  I was surprised to how fast it worked, and I haven't seen an ant come back yet!

Here's some facts about it:
  • Preferred food form for ants.
  • Fast killing formula.
  • First specially formulated ant gel.
Next, I tried the Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bait in the bathroom.  I know, you're thinking you never want to come to my house, it sounds like we have a lot of ant problems.  But no more!  We did have some bigger ants in the kids bathroom, so I decided to try the baits there.  It's very simple, you place to bait, the ant goes in and eat the bait, it takes it back to its nest and kills the colony.  This form worked great as well.  I liked that it doesn't leave any residue or odors so it's safe to use with kids.
Here's some more facts about it:
  • Quick kill formula.
  • Destroys the queen and the entire colony.
  • Provides long lasting ant killing power.
  • Child-resistant.
You could use both of these products in your home by using the gel to kill the ants that are bugging you now, and use the baits for long-term, continuous control.

  1. Right now it's summer time and we have ant problems. I have no idea how they managed to get inside the house. but its pretty annoying! I can't wait for summer to be over

    1. Getting rid of ants some times become very hard. Ants hate the smell of vinegar. Make a solution of water and white vinegar. Then spray the solution on the places where they live in. They will definitely leave the place.

  2. In the south we have ants lol...most definitely! Sugar ants, fire ants...just the house is sugar ants and in the car some how with kids I had fire ants...

  3. Yes we do! We joke that if we ever have an earthquake here the house will fall in from all the ant tunnels underneath.
