Common Carpenter Ant

Carpenter ants can be controlled by finding and poisoning their colonies. Colonies are located in wall voids and wood, giving them their carpenter name.

Drilling and dusting of infested walls and voids with insecticidal dust such as Tri-Die, Timbor or Borid are best. Bait such as Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is effective where ants are abundant.

Perimeter treatments with a liquid spray such as Termidor, Demon WP or Talstar prevent ants from entering perimeter. Applications with Demon WP or Talstar to trees where colonies are located are also helpful.

Outdoor baiting such as KM ANT PRO FEEDER STATION with Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait is the most effective long-term solution.
