I may have asked a similar question in the past but I need some help. Does anyone know a sure fire way to get rid of carpenter Ants? I have been doing A LOT of research on them. I know you have to find the nest…..I know they spawn satellite colonies….I know you have to kill the queen…..I know they like moist areas. Here is the scenario: Cabin is in the woods in a pretty much shaded area. There are dead trees/leaves everywhere. It does remain moist the vast majority of the time due to lack of sunlight. I noticed “frass” or aka the sawdust from the ants, behind my panels in the walls and in the some parts of the roof. Yes this tells me there is moisture. I cannot afford a new roof and the moisture in the walls is by an old stone chimney that acts like a sponge. The chimney is also on a side of the cabin that gets the direct rain. If I cannot completely get rid of the moisture is there still a way to get rid of the ants? I purchased some Advantix granules and Maxforce gel bait. Thanks!
