Distance PLUS® Ant Bait, from Sumitomo Chemical, is an insect growth regulator (IGR) that interferes with the ant’s growth and development.
Distance PLUS® Ant Bait prevents the queen from laying viable eggs and metamorphosis of larvae into adult ants, and breaks the reproductive cycle of the ant, thereby disrupting their work and eventually causing starvation in the colony.
Distance® PLUS Ant Bait provides long-lasting ant control. It is important to understand that this IGR works slowly, causing a gradual reduction in worker numbers. The end goal should be elimination of the colony. This is the strength of Distance® PLUS Ant Bait.
Always read and follow label directions.
