Carpenter ants removing bait
I have located a carpenter ant nest in my window frame. I opened it up and can see lots of ants and eggs. I injected Combat ant bait which has the same ingredients as MaxForce which has a good reputation.
The ants are taking the bait and dropping it off the side and down on my baseboard.
I chose to do this rather than spray since I'm not sure this is the main nest and I want to be sure the queen gets the poison.
Has anyone else had this happen? Could this be because I injected directly into the nest?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Me, I'd call a professional exterminator. I'd much rather have a pro get on the problem quickly rather than waste time trying to figure it out. It's one thing to deal with a few bugs here and there but when you've got an infestation that's already doing a lot of damage? You want that stomped out RIGHT AWAY. And in theory a pro's going to understand how they got there, where else they might be already present, and how to tackle the problem on a larger scale.
At this point the exterminator will probably be the least expensive part of this, they'll want a few hundred bucks... then you've got to open up your walls to fix damage, that's where the money comes in.
