Product Description

Fluon, also known as PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), is a liquid that when dry, prevents ants from escaping their containers. PTFE is a type of non-stick material often used in cookware, and it has a very low coefficient of friction, making it difficult for insects to climb or crawl on surfaces coated with it.

Once dry, fluon forms a slippery surface when applied to glass or plastic. Ants attempting to crawl up the sides of the container will encounter the slippery Fluon barrier and will find  it challenging to climb.

Fluon is temporary! It wears off over time or becomes contaminated with debris allowing the ants to eventually escape. It can be removed with rubbing alcohol and reapplied as needed to maintain its effectiveness.

Application Instructions

Gently swirl or stir bottle to mix but do not shake. Apply one coat to the upper inner edges of the outworld, approx. 1/2 inch to 1 inch, by using a cotton swab. Use a circular or up-and-down motion while applying. There will be a whitish residue upon drying. Apply with good ventilation (near a vent fan or outside), avoid the fumes while it’s wet or drying. Wash hands thoroughly after use. Turn bottle over every few weeks to ensure maximum efficiency. Store solution at room temperature.

It is important to note that this product is a serious eye irritant. If it comes into contact with your eyes, rinse your eyes thoroughly with water for several minutes and seek medical attention if needed. Additionally, keep the product away from flames as fumes from burning can be toxic.
