After finding carpenter ants in the basement and the living room, I followed their trail from the basement all the way to an old tree in the backyard - which was about 50 feet from the house! This was where their main nest was.
Carpenter ants can forage as far as 100 yards, or the length of a football field, when setting up a colony.
I began treating along the sill plate in the basement, along the baseboards in the living areas, and around the exterior doors and windows with a non-repellent residual product. I also treated the main nest with the residual and applied a granular bait around the base of the tree.
The carpenter ants unknowingly come in contact with these products and transfer them to the other colony members. In a short amount of time, the carpenter ants are exterminated.
I was sent out to a customers home in Fair Haven, NJ for a carpenter ant issue.
