applyAnti outbreak oil is to be placed on the upper edges of an ant farm, so that can not escape the ants. Application can be by using a cotton ball.
The ants do not have a grip on the (good) anointed mixture, they slip away and therefore remain on the place you want to keep them. Only to be used on smooth surfaces (plastic / glass) without corners. In one corner can always namely ants (partially) get a grip.
It is a mixture based on talcum powder, it is not a 'real' oil. The composition ensures that it can continue for a prolonged period (up to one year) without replacement. At a large colony or high humidity is often necessary to clean it and to apply again.
