Fluon, (or PTFE-30) is used widely for its ability to contain insects and prevent them from climbing smooth surfaces where Fluon (PTFE-30) has been applied.
2 oz. bottles, 16 oz. bottles, and 128 oz. bottles are pure PTFE-30. These larger quantities are intended for laboratory/research environments or hobbyists with a large collection of ant colonies.
NOTE: The 2 dram vials of Fluon from www.tarheelants.com are pre-mixed with water. This mixture is our recommended solution for ant hobbyists. The 2 dram vial size is adequate for one or a few smaller habitats for a very long time!
Application Tips: Using a cotton ball or cotton swab rub the top one inch (or less in smaller habitats) of your foraging area or other container in a circular motion. Only a modest amount is necessary when applying each layer, we recommend three. Dry foraging areas (<40%) will keep each fluon application healthier longer. Reapply as needed or at minimum every 2-3 months clean with a warm microfiber towel and reapply. For corner application push the cotton ball fully into each corner pausing briefly each time.
Do not over-agitate the liquid. Turn the bottle over or shake gently once every 2-3 weeks to ensure maximum product shelf-life.
