DIY Complete Carpenter Ant Bait Kit
Two types of baits to use for carpenter ants. The Advance 375 A Select Bait may also be used for other ants and will feed their protein requirements. The Maxforce Fleet Ant Gel is an excellent fast-acting bait to feed their sugar requirements. The ants will either take one or the other, depending on the needs of that certain ant colony.
Taurus SC is the preferred choice of insecticide because it is a non-repellent insecticide. Because the ants can't detect it, they don't avoid it, tracking it back to the nest. Taurus SC is to be used outside only.
Tracking carpenter ants is easy; you just have to stay up late and have a flashlight. They like to travel on the edges and corners of your house. That is where you put the bait. You spray Taurus SC, where the house meets the ground around 18 inches in each direction.
