Gene Writes,

Can I kill carpenter ants with a fogger?

The ants are up in the roof rafters under insulation and behind the siding.

Answer:

No, fogging will not penetrate into the wall where the carpenter ants are hiding.  Unless you are going to tear into the wall where they are, your only option would be to bait the colony.  Carpenter ant bait is a food type product that you place where you see carpenter ant activity.  The ants will eat the bait, and bring it back to the colony where they will feed it to the queen and the rest of the colony and kill them at the source.  We would recommend our carpenter ant kit which comes with bait.
