Like any type of ants, carpenters ants are annoying and bothersome. But they have an additional negative characteristic—they are very destructive, and can cause quite a bit of damage to your property. Needless to say, you will want to do everything possible to keep these pests away from your home.
How carpenter ant bait helps protect your property
Carpenter ant bait is an effective treatment to protect against this type of ant for a long time. The bait provides ongoing and widespread protection, because the “worker” ants take the bait back to their next, where it is shared with the rest of the colony. You can use bait in conjunction with sprays or other products designed for immediate/contact kills.
Carpenter ants are highly attracted to piles of bait material rather than a broadcast application. For best results, place carpenter ant bait in small piles where trails are identified. This will help ensure the ants find the bait easily.
