There are 2 things to consider when using the KM Ant Pro system. 1) Make sure that the stations are "activated" properly. There has to be bait in the feeding tray. If there is no bait, then the ants cannot feed. 2) Make sure that stations are placed in a cool shaded area where ants would normally feed. Don't place them in hot direct sunlight. They won't work, because the ants will not feed on hot bait or even crawl across hot surfaces.
When the carpenter ants start feeding, the bait then takes 3-4 weeks to start killing the ants. Also, you will not see "piles" of dead ants. You just gradually stop seeing ants.
