    After having a toilet pulled for a water leak, I have found there is an infestation of carpenter ants that have eaten away the seal, bees wax. Any ideas as how I can kill these buggers without taking up the floor. I sprayed some RAID but can’t see if they are all dead.

    Put down some nutrasweet, or any sweetener with aspartame in it. It is known to kill carpenter ants, and should kill them all.  Very thrifty, and makes you think twice about drinking anything yourself with artificial sweeteners in it! :-)

    There's enough information out there on artificial sweeteners now that nobody should consider their use any longer:
