Jamie from Ojo Caliente, New Mexico writes
We would recommend using a combination of a liquid(sweet) and granule(protein) bait if treating for Carpenter Ants away from the home. The PFT Green In - Ground Station does not allow both baits to be offered at the same time, only one or the other. Carpenter ants usually forage during the night so it is recommended that you apply the bait just before sunset on a night when rain is not expected.
The Ants No More Bait Stations would be a better option to offer both types of ant bait such as Green Way Liquid Ant Killing Bait and Advanced Carpenter Ant Bait at the same time.
If you are finding carpenter ants crawling on the exterior of your home you can treat the entire perimeter to eliminate the colony. We strongly recommend you use a non-repellent spray such as Taurus SC.
