Getting Rid Of Carpenter Ants

This is getting frustrating. Our ongoing battle with Carpenter Ants is…well….ongoing. The damnable little creatures are still turning up, even though I have been pouring the ant killer to them in copious amounts.
I think the ant killer is working, up to a point. As I pointed out in my earlier post, Get Rid Of Ants, we have tried the little bait stations and stronger stuff that kills them on contact.

What I have been finding is a lot of dead ants, and then a lot that are kinda sick, and then some that are still in pretty good health. They turn up whenever we turn the lights out it seems. Like they wait for us to go to bed, then come out on an exploratory mission into the kitchen and sometimes beyond.

Wendy wants to call an exterminator, I am starting to agree, although I hate to give up my own quest to get rid of carpenter ants. So today they are getting another blast of the ant killer in all the cracks and crevices and places they turn up, and we’ll see….I was wondering how difficult it would be to get an anteater from Australia?

I will keep you posted….
