Eliminating carpenter ants in sugar Maple tree?

I tried a liquid Ortho carpenter ant insecticide that was advertised as "kills on contact" but reading the small print one must deduce that living trees are absent from the ants’ menu. Powder insecticides appear to be the researched response. I would appreciate any suggestions re: a brand -name powdered insecticide and its application because the ones in Home Depot seem to have the consistency of baking flour which will "blow in the wind" = please no Ortho products

    You can try asking your local ag. agent through the the extentison service office. The office is ran through the state university. He or she should be very helpful.
