Bayer Advanced Termite Killer Ready to Spread Granules is only labeled to treat for Termites. Termidor SC would be a better option. You can apply Termidor around the outside perimeter 1 foot up and out from the foundation of the structure. This will treat for most types of ants, including Carpenter ants.
Bayer Advanced Termite Killer Ready to Spread Granules does not contain Fipronil it contains Imidicloprid. Imidicloprid works the same way as Fipronil by transfer.
We recommend to treat the entire perimeter with Bayer Advanced Termite Killer Ready to Spread Granules. Even though you may identify activity in one area, there could be more in another. We also recommend to remove the rocks to treat the soil and then place the rocks back.
Bayer Advanced Termite Killer Ready to Spread Granules works best when applied outdoors on the soil.

You can apply Termidor SC in those holes at a rate of 4 gallons mixed solution per 10 feet. The mixing ratio .8 oz per gallon.
