What is best treatment steps to take for carpenter ants inside walls of home?

Winged ants emerged 5-7-2015 from trim work directly above window inside home on west wall otherwise rarely see any crawling ants inside. Ants seen on tree on sw corner of home about ten feet from home for years from dead section of tree. Noticed ants traveling along overhead cables that come through tree in sw corner of home. Home is wood sided and I have only used Ortho home defence liquid for years to spray perimeter of home inside and out.


Our new Carpenter Ant Guide has all the tips and steps you need to treat Carpenter Ants both inside and outside the home. If you know exactly where the nest is, you can treat the voids directly with a dust such as Delta Dust. To treat outside, the best product to use around the foundation and on structure in places where the ant may enter is Termidor SC.
