What is your recommended product to get rid of carpenter ants?
Carpenter ants are all around my deck and porches. I had an exterminator come out and he shook Niban around the deck surface. I am still seeing big, black ants. Can you recommend anything else that would be more effecitve?
We recommend that you use the products contained in 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 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.
