I discovered carpenter ants browsing around the stacked firewood logs. I suspect they might have a nest in one of them, but I didn't look for it. Anyway, I sprayed diluted Termidor around the logs to protect them - on the ground and on the bottom part of the logs. It rained on the third day of the application. My 2 questions are: 1)Is the Termidor application going to effectively kill the ants? 2) Should I re-apply since it rained several days later?
Termidor SC should help eliminate any carpenter ants as long as they are crossing over the treated areas. As long as the Termidor had a chance to dry before it rained there is no need to reapply the product.
