Controlling Carpenter Ants with Perimeter Spray

Camille Landry posted this on Aug 2, 2016

Will Bifen work to control Carpenter Ants?

Hello, is this product (Bifen) effective as a perimeter treatment along house foundation for carpenter ants? Also, will it stain vinyl siding? any additional information you can give me about preventative treatments for carpenter ants is appreciated. I have seen that many products break down in sunlight in 2 weeks-does this product hold-up longer? thanks very much.


Yes it will work and will have a 90 day residual.  Bifen would be considered a repelling chemical in that the ants will be able to acknowledge that it is there and may avoid contact with the treatment.  Termidor on the other hand is non repelling, the ants will continue to walk through the chemcial zone.  So if you suspect you have a active colony foraging in and out of the house I would recommend Termidor, if you are using a chemical as prevention then Bifen will work fine.
Please let me know if I can answer any further questions.
