Should the dispensers be placed well away from outside walls?
Should the dispensers be placed well away from outside house walls to draw the ants away from the house?

There is no specified distance next to or away from the house. The main point is that the dispensers need to be in an area where ants might normally feed, such as under a shrub, next to firewood, a tree etc. Don't place them in direct sunlight as the sun will heat the bait. Ants won't eat hot bait. It needs to be cool.
Ants are not pulled away from the house with these dispensers. The ants will find them in the natural course of searching for food. Hopefully they prefer the bait as opposed to whatever they are currently feeding.
Keep the bait cool and fresh, replace every 90 days for best results.
