Bio Advanced Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer Plus Concentrate previously known as Bayer Carpenter Ant and Termite Killer Plus Concentrate is a liquid product that kills wood-destroying insects like carpenter ants and termites as well as 75 other pests.

It can be used on lawns, landscapes, foundations, decks, patios, woodpiles, and wood structures.
I live in austin tx . I`ve been using this product just under 6 years. According to their directions you should only use 6 ounces of concentrate per gallon of water. When filling my 2.5 gallon sprayer using 15 concentrated ounces. That is enough to treat my home 3 to 4 times a year every 3 to 4 months. And this is the best part, 1 bottle will last 3 to 5 years. Compare that against what you are paying for yearly pest control and I think you will save a lot of money and will have a termite free home. And we don't have roaches, ants, termites, spiders, no bug of any kind, in our home.
It does kill carpenter ants and termites, which is great. I only wish it can also destroy their colonies. (Unfortunately, many insecticides I found that can destroy their colonies are not allowed in our state.)
We have many kinds of ants around our house including carpenter ants. We also found some termites in the furniture that we had just bought from overseas(!). We used Bayer Advanced Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer Plus Concentrate and it worked great. We used it for 2 seasons and so far we are very happy about the result. In our area (MA), another kind that we originally thought about using is prohibited. We are glad that we found this product. It is going to be the third season and we bought another couple of bottles.
Although I find it a good product, it does what it say's it can do. The reason I gave it a 3 is because the packaging was very poorly designed. The hose kept getting kinked. I finally had to poor it on because it wouldn't spray half the time. I found this very wasteful.
Bayer Advanced Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer Plus Concentrate is not a non-repellent product. We do carry several non-repellent products such as Termidor SC, Taurus SC, Dominon 2L, Altriset and several others.
I have a garage I have drywalled an use as a art studio, I have cut away expose 2" of the wood framing up front cement floor. the building is not exposed from 3 sides, so I cannot spray the outside perimeter. I can see evidence of wood eating pests -Will this small area application even kill what I need to kill if I do it this way. Will the application inside the building be dangerous to me and my dogs.
You can only use the Bayer Advanced Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer Plus Concentrate as a small localized spot treatment where the infestation is located. An application in the infested area will kill anything that is or will come incontact with the treated area. However, there is no way to know for sure if a re-infestation will occure besides performing an in ground soil treatment with Termidor or other termiticides. As long as you keep children and pets out of the treated area (garage) until it has a chance to fully dry, it is completelt safe.
