Synergy Pro Ant Bait is outdoor and indoor use

Why does Synergy Pro Ant Bait use two different actives?

To gain complete control, baits need to be spread throughout the colony and kill the queen. However, some baits work too fast and the colony detects the problem and stop feeding on the bait before it gets to the queens. Other baits are not rejected by workers but are rejected by queens, as the queens appear to be more sensitive to certain actives, making the bait repellent.

Either way, it is not uncommon for baits to kill a large number of workers, giving you the appearance of colony control. However, the bait is often not delivered to the queen. As a result, the queen continues laying eggs and a few weeks later, the problem returns! This is especially a problem with species with multiple queens – all the queens need to be killed to get lasting control.

Synergy Pro ant bait has been designed to maximise distribution within the colony. Synergy Pro utilizes a unique dual active system, each granule contains a mixture of hydramethylnon and pyriproxyfen (IGR). By reducing the level of individual actives but using the actives in combination, bait attractiveness can be maintained without compromising effectiveness. With pyriproxyfen having a specific action that targets the queen, you are maximising the chances of achieving colony control and lasting protection. 

Why does Synergy Pro Ant Bait use two different food granules?

Although some ant species tend to prefer a specific type of food, be it sugar, protein or oil, many ant species will eat a wide range of foods. Furthermore, even ants with a particular preference often change their diet throughout the year to meet the requirements of the colony. For example, many ant species (even sugar feeders) will require food with a higher protein content when the colony is producing young.

With most ant bait formulations containing only a single food group, pest professionals need to carry a range of different baits. Knowing which bait to use for a particular species at a certain time of the year can be a challenge and if there are multiple species to control, it may be necessary to apply several different baits.

Synergy Pro ant bait was developed with the objective of providing pest professionals with a single product that could be used in a wide variety of situations. It’s not just a question of mixing all the ingredients in one granule, after all, who likes their starter, main course and dessert all blended together?

    Grazyna (verified owner)

    Synergy Ant Bait is quick acting and is noticeable within a week. I would like to see the product in 50gm and 100gm sizes as otherwise there is a lot of wastage and I do not feel comfortable to throw the rest of the poison into the bin.

    We have ants in the walls of a two-storey home. They are destroying light switches, which is also dangerous. They have a large 'pathway' along a colourbond fence and in the mortar of brickwork. Would Synergy Pro Ant Bait work for this situation?

    Synergy Pro Ant Bait is an ideal option to control the colony. It can be used indoors and outdoors and contains two different food granules, making it attractive to various ant species. Ant workers pick up the bait granules and take them back to the colony or imbibe oil (containing the active ingredient) from the granules. Workers feed the bait or collected oil to the queen and immature ants. Additionally, where the ants enter the mortar, you may consider BattleaxePro Professional Crack & Crevice Aerosol, providing a rapid knockdown with ongoing residual and a flexible nozzle extension for crack and crevice treatment.

  2. Is Synergy Pro Ant Bait safe to use for the wider environment and non-target insect species? I live in Gippsland Victoria and need to control black ants, argentine ants and some very nasty aggressive bull ants.

    The active ingredients in Synergy Pro Ant Bait act as an insect growth regulator that breaks the reproductive life cycle, growth and development of ants.  There are no restraints or precautionary warnings for non-target insects listed on the products label.  The product is very toxic to aquatic life, fish and aquatic invertebrates and hence application around streams, rivers, or waterways should be avoided.  More details information may be available from the manufacturer Sumitomo Chemicals on 0287 529 000.

    For funnel ant control in turf and pastures, we recommend insecticides made from Fipronil for best results.  These are available in either granules or liquids depending on your application preference.  Surefire Fipronil Granular Ant Killer is our most sought after granular fipronil, and in the liquid formulations, we have different brands and pack sizes in Termidor Residual Termiticide and Insecticide, Surefire Termiticide and Insecticide, & Warden 100SC Insecticide.
