I have heard of a reasonably new product that is sprinkled in granular form around the foundation of one's home to protect against carpenter ants, termites, and other wood-eating insects.
Advance carpenter ant bait works great on Carpenter ants. Best applied in small piles where carpenter ant activity is found. Carpenter Ants tend to start trailing about 30 min before sunset and remain active throughout the night. If you don't see activity, try looking around house about 1 hour before sunrise. Broadcast application: 1 lb. per acre.
