Use this product as a perimeter treatment around the foundation of your house to keep ants, cockroaches, fleas and other insects from entering your home. The powerful ant killer granules kill pests on contact and provide long-lasting residual repellency. TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer is packaged in a convenient, re-sealable Shaker Bag which allows the granules to be easily distributed around the perimeter of your house, without handling the product. Just open the top, grab the handle at the bottom of the bag, and start spreading the ant killer granules. No chemical spreader or broadcaster is needed. This product is ideal as part of a two-step ant control process. Use TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer in conjunction with TERRO Liquid Ant Baits indoors to eliminate ants inside and prevent outdoor ants from re-infesting.
Treating Your Home with Ant Killer - Treating Foundations: Keep ants, cockroaches, fleas, waterbugs, milipedes, mites, silverfish, sowbugs, crickets and earwigs out of your house by applying a three to 10 foot band of granules near the house foundation. Water lightly immediately after application. It is best to treat the foundation when insects first appear or when you notice lawn damage. For best results, leaf litter should be removed from the foundation area and vegetation that touch the foundation should be cut back.
Treating Your Home with Ant Killer - Treating Ant Hills and Fire Ant Mounds: To control ants (except fire ants), apply one to two teaspoons over and around ant hills; water lightly immediately following application. If the soil is dry, water lightly before application to bring the ants closer to the surface for better control. For difficult ant infestations, use both a broadcast and spot treatment. To control fire ants, apply ½ cup of ant killer granules over and around each fire ant mound. Immediately following application, water the product in completely, applying a minimum of one gallon of water to each mound area. To prevent the disturbance of the fire ants, water gently – use of a high pressure hose may disturb the ants and cause migration, reducing the product’s effectiveness. For best results, apply in cool weather, or in early morning or late evening hours. Features:
