Been seeing carpenter ants on my patio and occasionally one in the house. There is a tree about 50-100ft away that I know has ants in it. I want to protect the house and kill anything that may be inside
No, the gel bait in the New York Outdoor Ant Kit is not labeled for carpenter ants. We would recommend Advance Carpenter Ant Bait paired with Maxforce Fleet Ant Gel which is a sugar bait. You should always give ants a choice as they may be in the mood for either a protein (granule) or a sugar (gel) bait.
Please take a few moments to read over our article How to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants to learn how to implement a successful ant control program.
