Is Gourmet Ant Bait Gel effective against carpenter ants? Is it the safest of the ant killers? Is it efficient and effective against carpenter ants? How long does it last inside and/ or outside the house?


Gourmet Ant Bait Gel is effective against all common types of household ants, including carpenter ants. Inside a home it will typically last about 2 -3 weeks before it gets too hard for ants to eat. This product is mainly meant to be applied inside the home; however you can use it outside. It will not last very long outside, especially if left in the sun, it will dry out quickly. You should only apply this product if and when you have ant activity. This product is a bait and is meant to attract ants, so you would not want to place it inside unless you had activity.
