Will Terro PCo work on carpenter ants as well?

I have little black ants(I believe sugar ants) as well as carpenter ants. I am looking for an ant bait station that will work on both. Is this a good option?


Terro PCO Ant Bait Stations will treat carpenter ants as well as all types of other ants, as long as they are in the mood for a sugar bait.  It is highly recommended to also use Advance 375A Ant Granular Bait which is a protein bait.  You should always give ants a choice as they may be in the mood for either a protein (granule) or a sugar (gel) bait. Even though the smaller ants you have are typically called "sugar ants", they too can be in the mood for a protein and they will not touch the Terro if they are not in need of the sugar.
