Frequently asked Ant Proof Questions

 

Is the plate portable?

 

Yes, the repellent comes preloaded. And it’s placement under the top plate keeps it secure when being moved around.

What if the ants build a tolerance to the repellent?

 

The diatoms are a physical barrier, so building tolerance is not possible. Also the clever placement of the repellent, adds the element of gravity to the plates effectiveness. Any ant brave enough to try to cross, will simple fall off the repellent surface.

 

Can dust build up on the repellent?

 

No, the placement of the repellent under the top plate stops this being an issue.

 

What if my pet eats the repellent?

 

Diatoms (the repellent we use) is completely harmless to humans and our furry friends.
However if you have a pet snail it will not be so lucky , as diatoms are lethal to them as well.

 

How often do I need to reapply the repellent?

 

The plate comes pre loaded with repellent, which with proper care can last up to 3 years.
New repellent can be applied by simple gently unscrewing the base plate and rubbing new diatoms into the glue surface. Then reattaching the base plate.

 

Can I wash my ant proof plate?
