When is the best time to begin a program to eliminate carpenter ants using MaxForce Carpenter Gel Bait and Advance Carpenter Granular Bait?

Answer:

Anytime you see carpenter ants around the home, even one, is a good time to apply the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait around your home to discourage entry inside your house.  Early spring is when carpenter ants start to become active and are looking for food since they have been overwintering for a while.  So now (March) is actually a perfect time for applying the bait. We offer the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules and the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel in our Carpenter Ant Kit #1 and Carpenter Ant Kit #2.
