Xstinguish Ant Bait
Xstinguish Ant Bait – deadly to almost all ant species but is the only bait that works on Argentine Ants!
Why are Argentine Ants a threat?
§ Argentine ants are one of the worlds most invasive and problematic ant species.
§ They are very aggressive, and although they are not poisonous, they do bite people.
§ Unlike other ant species, Argentine ant colonies co-operate with each other, and can combine over winter into super-colonies.
§ They reach enormous numbers, which means they have a huge appetite.

Xstinguish Ant Bait is the only bait that works on Argentine ants and is recommended by many Regional Councils throughout New Zealand.
Until now only available to professional pest controllers!
Whilst Xstinguish has been specially formulated to be irresistible to almost all pest ant species in New Zealand, it is not harmful to humans. Xstinguish is just 1% of the strength of other commonly used garden and household insecticides.
The bait has a low level of poison so ants will take the bait back to their nests to feed the queen ant and young, rather than dying from initial contact with the poison.
Sold in a 100gm tube - enough to treat an average colony.
Xstinguish is ideally used with Ant Cafes.
