The New York Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit contains the professional pest control products you need to treat carpenter ants found inside homes, apartments, and other residential and commercial areas. This kit has two baits containing different formulations and active ingredients to increase bait acceptance and efficacy. Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel has a high moisture content and sweet bait matrix with the active ingredient fipronil, while the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules are sized specifically for carpenter ants and contain a protein bait matrix and the active ingredient Abamectin. The New York Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit also contains bait plate stations that allow you to apply and monitor both baits simultaneously. Finally, the kit contains Alpine PT aerosol, a non-repellent spray that provides protection from existing and future infestations.
As with all of our Pest Control Kits, we recommend using an Integrated Pest Management approach to ant control. It is crucial to practice good sanitation by eliminating competing food and water sources, and to eliminate harborage and entrance points to keep ants from entering the structure. If you are able to identify specific carpenter ant nests, you may want to consider additional direct treatment options as well.
Although the products in this kit are labeled to control of many species of ants, we suggest you identify the ants you find indoors to assist in choosing the best kit for your situation. See all of our Ant Control Kits here.

Before applying any insecticides, it is important to inspect and to prepare the treatment area. Practice good sanitation by eliminating food and water sources that may compete with the baits you are about to apply. Also find ways to seal up and eliminate access points into the structure. These steps will help not only to treat an existing infestation, but also to prevent future problems. Once you have identified the hot spots where ants are entering or trailing indoors, you are ready to use the products in your Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit.
How to Apply the New York Indoor Ant Kit
STEP 1 - BAIT - Bait Plate Stations, Advance Carpenter Ant Granular Bait, Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel
*Handle bait stations with clean, dry hands or wear gloves. Avoid handling bait with bare hands as this may make baits less attractive to the ants.
*Your kit includes a set of 12 bait station bases, 12 lids, and 12 glue dots. Pull apart the stacks to separate the components. Each base is a tray with two ridged channels so that you can use two different baits in each bait plate station.
*To apply the Advance Carpenter Ant Granular Bait, unscrew the top, then either gently tap the granules into a bait plate station tray, or use a dedicated or disposable tool such as a plastic spoon to scoop the bait into each station. Use enough bait to fill at least half of one side of each bait plate station you plan to set out. (Keep the other channel empty for the gel bait.)
*To apply the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel, first gently unscrew the solid black tip of the tube you would like to use. Replace this tip with one of the clear, reusable tips included with your kit. Use either a bait gun or the included plastic plunger to gently expel the gel from the tube, similar to using a syringe. (You may need to pull back gently on the plunger to prevent over-application.) Place a spot of bait about the size of a pea in the other side of each bait plate stations you plan to use.
*When you are done applying the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel, replace the clear plastic tip with the black solid tip to store bait.
*After you have filled your bait plate station trays, snap a lid onto each one by lining up the U-shaped tab and the round tab with the corresponding parts in the tray. Gently press the edges of the lid until it is firmly snapped into the tray, being careful not to tilt the trays, which may cause granule bait to spill. You can remove the perforated tab on the lid to allow ants easier access to the baits.
*You should place bait in areas where ant activity has been noticed. It is important to avoid purposefully putting the bait in the middle of an ant trail or onto the ants themselves: this will make the ants avoid the bait and make the baiting ineffective. Instead, put the bait near ant activity or next to ant trails. Some examples of places where the bait can be placed are:
- In kitchen cabinets and on counter tops.
- Behind, next to, and under the stove.
- Near sinks or drains
- Around pipes, cords, and cables that come out of the wall.
- Behind and under bathroom fixtures.
- Around the medicine cabinet and vanity.
*You should check the bait placements once a week and replenish as needed until ant activity has ceased. Be sure to continue reapplying bait as long as the ants accept it!
*Store baits in a dry, temperate area, out of direct sunlight. Baits are best used within a year of opening.
*Advance Carpenter Ant Granules can be applied outdoors as a broadcast, perimeter, or colony treatment. Apply when the ground is dry and rain is not expected for at least 24 hours. See the product label for complete outdoor application instructions.
*Bait stations may be wiped clean and washed with warm water for reuse later. Do not use fragrant cleaners, as this may make future bait applications unattractive.
STEP 2 - SPRAY - Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol
*Alpine PT is a non-repellent spray that also has a delayed kill on individual ants so that it may spread to other ants in the colony.
*Alpine PT may be applied with or without the included crack and crevice straw, although we recommend using the crack and crevice straw for more detailed applications.
*If you have trouble inserting the straw, you may need a pair of needle-nosed pliers to force the straw into the nozzle. (Be sure to do this while the tip is off the can.)
*Apply Alpine PT Aerosol to cracks and crevices where ants are likely to enter the structure or to trail, such as around window frames and door frames, where pipes and other utilities enter the structure, in corners, under appliances, and in any other spots where ants may have access into the structure.
*Keep other people and pets out of the treatment area until the spray has dried.
*Do not spray Alpine PT or other insecticides directly on top of bait placements.
*Alpine PT may be reapplied as needed.
