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.

groups of pest insects).

benign product that can be flooded on the plant as well as into the soil
with good result?
