carpenter ant killer
carpenter ants: i already have the KM ant pro stations filled with gourmet liquid ant bait....I found an ant next in a tree, where the ants are coming from into the house: I had a little leftover advance granules that i distributed near the tree, and used up some advion ant gel in the voids of the tree near the nest....my question is: any suggestions on what to use nest? more advion? maxforce ant gel? more granules or different granules? I also have the outdoor bait stations I've been using, filled with gel/granules, but these buggers are persistent! I finally tracked them down to the tree, however.
Keep in mind that you should not be using both granules and gels in the same place and the same time. Also, gels will easily breakdown in outdoor environments, unless they are kept protected in the bait stations. We recommend Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules if you are looking to use a bait outside. We also recommend spraying the tree with a product called Termidor. Termidor is an outdoor spray only and although it is best known as a termiticide, it is very effective for ants, especially carpenter ants.
