I've tried just about everything out there. This is the only solution that I found that keeps Carpenter Ants away from my house and patio areas. Prior to having these, I had exterminators come and they could never get the job done. In the 5 years that I've been using these, I have rarely seen an ant on my property and I live in a heavily wooded area in the North East. I fill them in April and then re-fill them in June and sometimes August if needed. You basically fill them up, put them around your house or shrubs and within a month, all the ants are gone. Brilliant solution!
This really solves the ant problem, and it is so easy to use. You fill it once and it lasts all season. I bought one for the front of the house and one for the back. I even bought one for my brother in Indianapolis and he loves it too.
I was plagued with ants in my house for years, starting in early Spring until late Fall. I tried everything I heard of to control them. Nothing worked until I got the KM Ant Pro Bait Station in early Spring, 2010. Since then I have not seen one ant in my house and none around my house outside. I was amazed, but thrilled. The only bad news is that the price has gone up considerably since I first got mine. The good news is that you won't be wasting your money on something that doesn't work.
The stations were great. Antopia R2's not so much.

I put 8 of these stations around my 5 acre property surrounding my lawn and patio areas and carpenter ants just disappeared from my entire property. The only issue I had was when I didn't stake the units into the ground, groundhogs and/or raccoons would tip them over and drink the bait. I tried a couple Antopia R2's and they definitely don't work as well.
