I purchased the Indoor Carpenter Ant Bait Kit. The carpenter ants were attracted to the gel bait but would make a wide circle to avoid the granules. Maybe at this point in time they were only interested in a sweet food. The ants avoided either bait in the plastic trays. If I put the gel on both the outer edge of the tray and inside the tray the ants would enter the plastic tray and eat the gel bait. If the gel was only inside the tray they would not enter the tray. The ants seem to be gone. I still see another dead one now and then but no more live ones. I hope those are just stragglers, not a new group starting over. I tried the granules with random ants in the yard and they were interested and those little hills disappeared. So the granules did kill ants - the carpenter ants did not consume it but I think it would have killed them, too. The customer service rep was very helpful. I would buy from DoMyOwn again but probably not this particular kit. I would try to research if carpenter ants are more likely to eat sweet or protein bait based on time of year or something like that and go with one bait or the other. So no stars for the trays (though I like the idea of the trays), 5 stars for the gel because it seemed to work, and 3 stars for the granules because it killed other ants.
