spray the ants, they just move. How can I kill them?
ants eat wood?
I have a large carpenter ant, but both ends of its body are black, and the middle is red or orange. What kind of ant is this?
Over this past weekend I noticed that my yard had hundreds of what appeared
to be dark-colored, white-winged ants coming out of the ground and flying
away. Most of the ant holes had lots of smaller ants without wings around
them. It has been wet for about a week now and Saturday was a very humid
and sunny day. After it rained that night, these insects were gone and I haven't
seen a one since. Does this sound like ants? My home is being treated by a
termite service with a Sentracon System and has been under treatment over the
last 6 months. Any answers you can provide, or products you could recommend would be a great
help. Thanks in advance.
I have been sprinkling Ortho Orthene fire ant killer on the mounds in my yard, and although it seems to work, for every mound I destroy, two or three new mounds appear somewhere else in the yard. It is a constant battle that I seem to be losing.
What I'm wondering is whether the ant poisons you distribute (e.g.,
Maxforce Complete Granules) have any salient advantage over the Orthene.
What is an effective ant bait against carpenter ants?
Are these carpenter ants?
Most of the time ant baits like Advance or Maxforce Granular baits work, but sometimes sporadically against carpenter ants.
The best solution, however is to find the colony and destroy it(if finding the colony is available) or use a non repellent spray like Taurus SC

We have an ant problem, but they are critters I have never seen in my life. They appear to like our tomato and sunflower plants. They always come in a combination of two completely different looking kinds and seem to just sit there, strung up on the stalk of the plant, and suck the juices out of it. One kind is bright green and doesn't really look like ants. They are about 1/4 inch long with green pointed backs that look like shields. The other kind are really ugly looking dark brown creatures, that make normal ants look smooth and pretty. They appear to live in some kind of symbiosis, meaning that they have some business with each other, because they are always clinging to each other in some way or other. Can you help me find out what they are and how to take care of them?
I have what looks like flying ants. They were all over the place. What confused me was that there were some smaller and larger ones with no wings and they were orange in color. The ones with the wings were black and the ones without the wings were orange. Is this common?
I have a type of flying ant with a three-part body, black and red-black about 1/4 inch long.
Are these a type of carpenter ant or termite?
I am new to
Florida and don't know the insects.
The recommended products
are Dustin Mizer, a crank type duster to cover attics well,
and a dust called Delta Dust.
I have a few questions regarding carpenter ants.
I believe we have a nest inside the house in the basement.
Will they nest in the insulation? Should I pull out the
insulation to locate the nest, or should I be able to see a nest? The
basement is not finished.
Carpenter ants can and do nest in insulation. You may have to pull out the insulation to find them.
We have a small problem in our vegetable garden. We have little red ants by the thousands. They have eaten the tops of the carrots, but have done nothing else. I don't want them to eat our vegetable next season. What should we do?
I would spread someMax Force Complete Granulars
around the garden.
We have very small ants attacking the plants and eating holes in the leaves in our garden.
Finding the Ant colony in the soil and drenching it with a
liquid insecticide would be the best approach.
