Maxforce carpenter ant outside - in a covered container?

I live in NY, so of course many of the more effective carpenter ant controls are not allowed here. I ordered "Maxforce" from you guys which seems to be a good solution -- but at least one of the ant colonies I have is under my driveway outside my house. I plan on making my own bait traps out of plastic containers with lids, upside down and with entrance doors cut out for the ants to get to the pesticide. Do you think that would be a good idea, and keep the Maxforce from drying out too quickly?


Using the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel in a bait station is a good plan. This will help protect the bait from the elements but still keep it available to the ants.
