Best Pick Reports




What do you recommend to get rid of medium to big sized black ants, maybe carpenter ants.  We live in Central Ohio and we've killed about one to two ants per day.  Also we have flowers (Peonies) outside that ant's like in the spring, but there aren't there now, just in the house!  If you have brand names of products that would be great too.


At this time of year, protein baits are still the baits of choice for many ant species.  The use of a product known as Advance Carpenter Ant Bait could be extremely helpful.

If you take the time to review past questions that I have answered, you will find much detail in these previous answers.

If you want a more thorough answer, I will gladly oblige; however, you will most likely get that information as I suggested.

Carpenter ants will become more attracted to carbohydrate baits in the late Summer, and Fall.

Best wishes,
