Combat review and sweepstakes


A month or so ago, I was sent a package of Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips to try and review. I had to wait until I started seeing ants to use it, which was about a week ago. It seems that every year, ants become a problem in 3 areas of my home: one of the bedrooms, around the kitchen sink, and near the dog's food dish. As soon as I saw a few ants, I reached for that package to nip the ant problem in the bud.

Opening the vacuum-sealed pouch that contained the strips posed no problem at all. It had the little pre-cut "tear here" edge. After removing the first strip, I did encounter some difficulty. The product itself is a little plastic tray with a peel-off seal to expose the product and on the other side is a label that has a small adhesive sticker on top of it to affix it to a surface. My first problem was that when I saw the words, "remove to adhere," I tore the label instead of the way-too-small adhesive sticker and made it so that the sticky was no longer able to be used. Even on the ones that I exposed correctly, I found that the sticker was too small to be very effective at sticking to the desired surfaces. Anyway, I did end up setting out the trays, and sticking them in places that were not my first choices, so I got them out and waited.

I still saw ants for about 3 days after I set the strips out, but I have not seen any since then. I feel that this product could use some improvement, but it did end up doing the trick eventually.
