From the label are the following directions about carpenter ants.

Carpenter Ants Outdoors: Treat carpenter ant nests for best results. Treat areas where carpenter ants are seen or are believed to forage, such as ant trails, and around doors and windows. As stated in the “Pest Control on Outside Surfaces and Around Buildings” section, treat using a low or high volume perimeter treatment. When treating concrete surfaces, more frequent treatments, higher dilutions and/or application volumes may be needed for carpenter ant control. The following procedures must be followed to help achieve 51 maximum control of the pest: Dilute 0.5 to 1.0 fl. oz. of Bifen I/T per gallon of water and apply at a rate of up to 10 gallons of dilution per 1,000 square feet to obtain residual control.

1. Vegetation and porous surfaces should be treated with high volume applications using dilutions that are calculated to deliver 0.5 to 1.0 fluid oz. of Bifen I/T per 1,000 square feet (refer to the Ornamental and Perimeter Application Dilution Charts).

2. Treat non-porous surfaces with low volume applications using 0.5 to 1.0 fluid oz. of Bifen I/T per gallon of water and applying this dilution at the rate of one gallon per 1,000 square feet.

3. Use 0.5 to 1.0 fl. oz. of Bifen I/T per gallon of water on tree trunks with carpenter ant trails or evidence of foraging. Apply to the bark, completely wetting it from the bottom of the tree to the highest possible point on the trunk.

To control carpenter ants inside deck materials, fencing, trees, utility poles or other structural elements, drill to find the inside infested cavity and inject or foam a 0.06% dilution (1.0 fl. oz. of Bifen I/T per gallon of water) into the cavity with adequate volume and a proper treatment tool with a splash-back guard. Where there are ants tunneling below the surfaces, dilute 0.5 to 1.0 fl. oz. of Bifen I/T per gallon of water and applying as a drench or foam at intervals of 8 to 12 inches. A uniform barrier should be established where there are ants tunneling below surfaces such as, at the edges of walls, driveways or other hard surfaces.

Use a sprinkling can or a hose-end sprayer to distribute a coarse drenching spray, apply a 0.06% dilution to stored lumber and wood piles. This wood may be used for lumber or may be burned after 30 days. Do not use this method of application in structures. Diluting 1.0 fluid oz. of Bifen I/T per gallon of water and applying to the soil below where the firewood will be stacked at the rate of one gallon of dilution per 8 square feet will protect the wood from carpenter ants. DO NOT treat firewood with this product.
