Hello!

We have a question about a possible carpenter ant nest in our cottage. We can hear them munching/clicking in the wall/ceiling of our bedroom, and have found a number of winged ants inside (mostly upstairs).

All food is stored in Tupperware, so there's not a lot of food for them inside. If we put diazinon around the perimeter of the cabin, will this eventually kill the nest inside by starving them out? Would anything else be as effective as diazinon?

Thanks! Great site! It helped me not to panic (quite as much!).

Kristine
