WHAT IS PTFE?
PTFE, also known as äóÖfluonäó», is a laboratory-grade liquid commonly used by entomologists for containing insects within their enclosures. The substance is non-toxic and is 100% safe to use with ants and other insects. It really is the best stuff for the job!Œæ
HOW TO USE
Using a brush or cotton ball, spread a thin even coat all the way around the upper inner edges of your container (For an ŒæAus Ants Outworld, this would be on the underside of the acrylic sheet bordering the sliding lid). Once dry (after approximately 5-10 mins), this area will become super slippery, making it very difficult for insects to pass over it without losing their grip and falling back down to the bottom. For maximum effectiveness, remove barrier and re-apply a fresh one every 3-6 months.
60ml may not seem like much, however, very little of the liquid needs to be applied per use. Meaning this small bottle will last a long time...if properly stored of course. Keep the bottle out of direct sunlight, make sure the lid is tightly screwed on, and gently turn the bottle over once per month. This will prevent the liquid from solidifying and becoming ineffective.
I only have a tiny colony so far since I started but works great so far!
PTFE liquid changed my wifes mind.
This stuff is awesome ! Basically a barrier you can apply on glass or plastic that no insect can pass over . Fruit fly's ,house fly's, ants or spiders ,once my wife witnessed this she felt much better about insects in the house.
Aus Ants PTFE liquid review
A great price, works well and it should last me quite some time.
Since I apply fluon on my outworld I have not seen ants outside the outworld.
