Susan from Crownsville, Md writes,

Does Maxforce Ant Bait Granular work well on Carpenter Ants? Also is it safe to use around dogs?

It would not be near my dogs food, but would be on the ground in a yard where he frequently runs. If it is not safe, what would be a better option for carpenter ants?


Maxforce Ant Bait Granules can be used for carpenter ant control. When used as a broadcast application the granules will be pretty inaccessible to most animals because they will fall down into mulch or grass where a dog would be hard pressed to find the granules. Also, the very small amount an animal might be able to eat when Maxforce Ant Granules are broadcast should not be enough to cause any issues. If you are planning to use the granules in piles that would be accessible to your dog, you should place the granules in an ant bait station.
