When possible we like to keep the battle outside. Often the main nest can be found in a nearby tree or mulch bed. Finding the source and getting them from the outside is much more effective ant control than continually treating inside.
Sometimes it does make sense to do an inside treatment. Various factors like how long the infestation has been going on and time of year all make a difference as to the best plan of action to effectively eliminate ants.

Carpenter ants are the most common ant problem in Sheboygan County. They venture into homes often looking for food or water. They prefer moist or rotted wood to tunnel through and sometimes will make a sub colony inside a structure. They do not eat wood like termites. They tunnel through it making galleys and in turn leave the wood they infest weaker. Leaving these pest go unchecked may cause structural damage down the road.
