The customer had a swarm of winged carpenter ants in one of the upstairs bedrooms. I followed the ant trail to the window and saw the ants squeezing through a tiny crack. I also noticed the carpenter ants were trailing from a branch from one of the oak trees that bordered the home.
I informed the homeowner who immediately began pruning away all the branches that were overhanging the home. As he was doing that, I began the treatment process.
I treated the attic, window frames in all the bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, crawl space and the entire exterior foundation with a liquid residual.
I also applied a granular bait around the base of every oak tree and injected a dusting residual under the siding of the exterior of the home.
The carpenter ants will come in contact with any of these treatments and bring it back to their nest to share with their queen and the other ants in the colony. Soon, the entire colony is exterminated.
I was sent out on a service call to a home in Leonardo, NJ to treat for carpenter ants.
