Seems to me that the pest control guys down here use a common kitchen
chemical (white powder) such as Arm & Hammer stuff to fight hard shelled
insects. The last time we had a carpenter ant invasion, this stuff was used
along with some more toxic stuff. Wish I could remember what it was. I'm
sure someone else will know.
