I have carpenter ants in my bedroom. How can I get rid of them?
I suggest you first review our CARPENTER ANT CONTROL ARTICLE which details all you need to know about this destructive pest. As you’ll learn in the article, activity in the home means there is a nest close by. You’ll also learn they tend to have several nests all working within a “network”. These satellite nests can be located on the home, in the yard or even on someone else’s home. Treatment will vary depending on whether you know where any nests are located and in general, it’s always best to directly nests when possible. This will insure a quick kill. Alternatively, using the bait gel and longer acting sprays will work but these products take some time to work.
I also suggest you review our video’s. The one about “how to locate the nest” is especially helpful if you don’t have a clue where it might be located. Again, if you are fortunate enough to see where you think they might be nesting, a direct treatment with the DRIONE will yield fast results. But if you aren’t able to find any nests but do see them active in several locations, you can opt to use the slower working CARPENTER ANT GEL combined with the PHANTOM AEROSOL (for inside the home) and the TERMIDOR (for outside on the home). This trio of products will no doubt get any type of ant which chooses to remain active on treated surfaces and is definitely a viable option.
