How do you efficiently get rid of carpenter ants?

How do you efficiently gét rid of carpenter ants? PESTGONTROE FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED SINCE 1998 It is not as simple as eliminating any ant you come across. Carpenter ant colonies, like other ants, begin with scout ants that scour your home for the finest areas to eat and hang out. Then, once they have found a good food source, their buddies follow the trail and make a nest close to your wall. You have undoubtedly found these little explorers if you have seen a few stray carpenters. Ant removal Toronto can help you to get rid of the ant easily and efficiently. Make a bait to find the nest According to pest specialists, setting out bait for the ants to carry back to the nest will allow you to locate the nest simply by watching them. They are drawn to sweets, so a small amount of jam or jelly will be enough. Alternatively, you can combine equal parts sugar and baking soda in a shallow dish. The ants will be drawn to the sugar, but the baking soda will naturally kill them. Eliminate scent trails Carpenter ants use pheromone trails to find food and travel. You have destroyed this treasure map to your home by cleaning surfaces where ants have walked. You can wipe clean surfaces with a cotton ball soaked in essential oils like tea tree, lemon, orange, or cedarwood to stop these trails. Alternatively, mix one-part dish soap with two parts water in a spray bottle. Destroy the nest You will need to go into the wall to destroy it once you have found the nest by following ants, finding "grass" near a wall, or hearing a slight rustling sound. Drill 1/8" holes every six inches in the area where you suspect the nest is located. Then put the "puff" boric acid through the holes with a bulb duster. Apply a direct dusting A direct layer of carpenter ant dust can also be applied to the surface of the wood that the ants walk on. This procedure works even better if the dust can be applied or poured inside the ant's nest. Different dust solutions require different application methods, and it is critical to follow the directions. If it sounds like more work or a bigger mess than you are willing to deal with, hire a professional. Even if you successfully eliminate the carpenter ant nest, there may still be more in your home. Call an exterminator to make sure the nest is gone and to search for other possible nests. If you are inadequate to find the nest but are still seeing carpenter ants, you should contact a professional.
