Deploying Bait is our preferred approach to exterminating Carpenter Ants.
The bait technique to Control, Eradicate, and Exterminate Carpenter Ants results in:
Avoidance of broadcast application of Control Agents. Which results in less pollution and general hazard for people and pets.
And less intrusion to the flow of life.
Carpenter Ants are attracted to the bait and are likely to be impacted by it.
The Pest is least likely to be going into new areas to spread the infestation.
Carpenter Ants would be exterminated having consumed the bait and may also prove to be a source of secondary poisoning for other members.
This technique is cleaner and safer.
Bait has proven to be a fool-proof method of extermination and it comes in Gel or Paste form and is usually deployed inside cracks, gaps and holes particularly near where Carpenter Ants are present or forage.
Expected Results And Outcome Of The Treatment:
It may take up to 5 weeks for all the Carpenter Ants to come and forage on the bait and then become affected by it. This Bait will prove fatal to Carpenter Ants. Most of the Carpenter Ants will expire behind the scenes but some may be found dead near our living spaces. A typical cleaning exercise would be sufficient for the final act.
Carpenter Ants are among the largest of the Ants.
Typical Carpenter Ants workers in Ontario are about quarter to half an inch in length.
Carpenter Ants are called so because they make their nests in wood – chewing away along the grains of the wood – making tunnels or galleries.
Carpenter Ants are not interested in dry wood in sound condition. They are attracted to damp wood that is likely to deteriorate with time.
Carpenter Ants can cause a painful bite in defence.
Do not use Diatomaceous Earth or other over the counter insecticide dust formulations as they only deflect the ants into choosing other pathways and do not address the root of the problem.
