Get Rid of Carpenter AntsSome people believe you can't get rid of them yourself, but you need to call an exterminator.

Others use a product purchased at Home Depot or similar store, which is a small bottle of carpenter ant liquid concentrate killer that you mix with water in a pump sprayer.

One such concentrate is made by the Zap pest control Company and the proportion of mix to water is:

1/2 fluid oz to 1 gal. water for carpenter ants, crickets, etc.

1 fluid oz to 1 gal. water for roaches, fleas, Spiders

Follow the directions on the label. This can be used indoors or outdoors.

It is also noteworthy that mother nature uses insects to compost dead wood and most human dwellings are made of biodegradable materials, such as wood. The carpenter ant does not generally start attacking strong wood, but the already weak parts assisted by water damage (such as leaks in the roof, sinks, water areas of a house, tree stumps outside), so finding the ants will show the homeowner early water damage.

Homeowners can actually get two products that work well enough that you might not really know where the colony is and still get rid of them. One is Advance Carp Ant Granules, the other is Max force Carp Ant Gel. I find ants are more found in just hollow areas in the structure rather than actual wet wood, though looking for damaged wood from water or termite would be a good start.

There si no such pest but for cricket control out of doors which is where they are most likely coming from there are some very effective broadcast baits you can spread out by hand. they are very safe to use and very fine so other animals should not be a concern.

If you can find their nest, spray their next with an insecticide. It's best to kill off the army's bunk first! To attract the ants, mix in a bowl: boric acid (about three tablespoons), a half-cup of sugar, and one cup of warm water. The boric acid is fairly safe for humans to handle with as long as you try not to inhale it too much. Anyways, soak the mixture with cotton balls and set up the balls around the ants. The ants will eat the cotton balls and DIE!

There are two humane ways- one method is place them in a jar with ethyl acetate and they will asphyxiate, alternatively just freeze them.
