Dual-Action Solution Supports Comprehensive Ant Control


Schaumburg, II., June 3rd, 2024 – Zoëcon Professional Products, a pioneer in pest control innovation, proudly presents Formitrol™ Ant Bait Gel, a game-changing solution designed for the immediate knockdown and long-term control of a diverse range of nuisance ants. All ants belong to a single family, Formicidae – that’s why we chose the name Formitrol™ for this versatile ant control solution.

This innovative combination gel bait features a dual-action formula, combining the adulticide dinotefuran and our pioneering insect growth regulator (IGR)(S) - Methoprene to break the ant life cycle, ensuring both quick results and sustained control of the colony. The attractive bait palatability of Formitrol™ Ant Bait Gel 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 features one of the industry's most extensive lists of nuisance ant species with over 20+ listed. Formitrol™ also controls odorous house ants, Argentine ants, little black ants, pavement ants, ghost ants, and more.

Tony Schultz, senior director of the Zoëcon Professional Products division of Central Life Sciences, expressed excitement about the potential impact of the product. "Formitrol™ Ant Bait Gel represents a significant leap forward for our product portfolio and presents our customers with an even greater variety of solutions. Its dual-action formula and extensive ant species coverage make it an indispensable tool for both immediate and long-term pest management."

Formitrol™ Ant Bait Gel is labeled for both indoor and outdoor use. For unmatched rotational control of numerous ant species, pair with Antack™ Liquid bait, which features both contact and ingestion toxicity.
