Re: 30 hrs after package install.
They are on legs, and I may try the oil idea -- right now, my initial treatment with some Amdro tossed into the woods and boric acid tablets placed in toilet paper tubes (and partly buried in a mound of mint I planted -- both ideas from the douglasfarms link -- thanks camero7!) seemed to have worked. Haven't seen any carpenter ants, though the smaller brown ants are still about. Thank you!
