Combat Bugs $1000 #Sweepstakes, Review, and #GIVEAWAY!

Ants can be pesky little creatures.  Once you get them, they are hard to get rid of.  You spray and they seem to be gone, but only for new ones to quickly return.  The word was already out and they just keep coming.  So, how do you get rid of ants?  You might try Combat's Source Kill Max.  With it, you can get to the root of the problem and destroy the entire colony of ants.  The product will control ants in about 3-5 days.  Its active ingredient is slow enough for foraging ants to return to the colony and feed the bait to larvae and the queen so that they entire colony is destroyed through the "Domino Effect."

I received two types to try.  One is the little plastic compartment where ants crawl through, picking up the bait and carrying it back to the nest to destroy the colony.  This is nice because it is child-resistant (but I would still recommend keeping away from children) and has no vapors, fumes or odors.  These can be placed in cabinets, on counter tops, in corners and pretty much anywhere ants come in.

The second is a syringe.  This is new to me.  The syringe is filled with the bait and is a gel consistency.  You simply remove the cap and apply where you want it.  This is great for cracks and crevices but is not recommended around food preparation services.  It can also be used outdoors.

Fortunately, right now, we don't have an ant problem indoors, which I suspect is due to the lack of rain.  However, the ants love to hit up my hummingbird feeder and no matter how many times I have sprayed the post it hangs from, they just keep coming back.  So, I decided to try the Combat Source Kill Max on it.  The post and feeder were covered in ants.  I don't mean a couple, but it was hard to even see the post for the ants.

It was very easy to use.  The cap was easy to remove and replace.  The syringe glided easily.  The gel came out in a nice, smooth fashion and I applied around the base of the feeder.  I LOVE that there were NO ODORS or FUMES!  And, it wasn't messy at all.  The gel went right where I applied it.  It could easily go into small cracks.

The next day, I check the feeder post.  There were still ants, but not quite as many.  However, the instructions do say that it controls them in 3-5 days.  I could see the ants actually carrying bits of the gel away.  I checked day two.  Only a couple ants.  By day three, there were no ants!  Yeah!

If it can take care of ant outside like this, I am sure it would do a good job of controlling them inside, too.

Right now, Combat is having an awesome sweepstakes!  You can win $1000 for a bug-free backyard bash.  Simply click HERE to enter.
