Q&A Home

I'm dealing with carpenter ants in a recently constructed log home. I need to eradicate them.

Log home, ants living between logs and likely inside them as well. I found one satellite entrance to the inside of home, and I suspect another. The home is surrounded by woods, so the soil treatment is needed.... make that a VERY STRONG SOIL TREATMENT! I need to wipe them out in home and treat the outside to prevent them from returning. What can you recommend?

Answer:

We would recommend our most popular carpenter ant control product which is our Carpenter Ant Kit #2.  The Carpenter Ant Kit #2 with Dominion 2L provides the best carpenter ant control available. For serious carpenter ant problems, nothing does the job better adding a product such as Dominion 2L to your arsenal. Dominion 2L is a sprayable liquid bait that makes up to 48 gallons of solution (enough to provide several years of outdoor protection) and can be sprayed around the outside of your home to provide a long-lasting barrier against carpenter ants and other ant species. Ants pick up the Dominion 2L on their bodies and spread it to other ants, eventually eliminating the entire colony. This kit also includes Advance carpenter ant bait for outdoor control/indoor control and Maxforce carpenter ant bait gel for indoor control. The Advance Carpenter Ant Bait is great for sprinkling in a 2 foot barrier around the outside of your home to provide a food source that outside ants are looking for.  It can also be applied around wood piles, trees, stumps, or other areas of harborage.  Advance Carpenter ant bait can also be used indoors in bait plate stations.  The Maxforce Carpenter ant bait is for indoor control only and should be placed where you see ant activity inside. The ants will eat the bait and take it back to the nest spreading it around to the other colony members. You will need a pressurized garden pump sprayer to apply the Dominion 2L.
