Deadly Simple Ant Control with the All-New Sumari® System by MGK

Ants are the number one household and nuisance pest in the United States. And in fact, they are consistently one of the top pests for which PMPs would like better control.


MGK is excited to introduce the all-new Sumari® System for ant control. Designed to work in tandem, Sumari® Insecticide and Sumari® Ant Gel Bait enhance treatment results through both direct contact and ingestion, simplifying ant control and giving PMPs more control to get it right the first time.


The system involves two parts:


  • Apply non-repellent Sumari® Insecticide concentrate to areas where ants are actively foraging/trailing. Sumari® Insecticide provides fast-acting and long-lasting residual control of ants, including multi-queen species, and a broad spectrum of other insects. Containing NyGuard® IGR, this convenient all-in-one solution can be used indoors and out, including outdoor broadcast and has no signal word.
  • Apply Sumari® Ant Gel Bait over or around areas treated with the concentrate. Sumari® Ant Gel Bait is a highly palatable and consistent matrix that holds up well outdoors, while delivering long-lasting control of ants, including multi-queen species. It kills within 24 hours and eliminates colonies within 1-2 weeks. This new bait can be used indoors and outdoors, including food areas in operation, and has no signal word.


Ants are attracted to the bait, which leads to more contact with the non-repellent concentrate. When used together as a system, the two products create an attract-and-kill approach that reaches deep into the colony, delivering faster and more thorough control, even when other food sources are present.


The Sumari® System was created specifically for PMPs. During development, the MGK team worked directly with PMPs to identify several challenging areas within ant control that were lacking in current product offerings on the market. Boasting flexible labels, only Sumari® brings together the features critical for improved ant control and improved productivity – optimal performance is achieved when the two products are used together.
