Keep ants from entering your house with TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer. This product provides instant knockdown and long-term control against ants and other unwanted home invaders- including carpenter ants, carpenter bees, Asian lady beetles, boxelder bugs.
When sprayed, the liquid product expands upon hitting its target surface and leaves an invisible residual deposit to kill ants and other pests. The ant killer spray is ideal as a perimeter barrier around foundations, doors and windows. An easy-to-use, powerful spray head allows you to deliver barrier spray in hard-to-reach places up to 10-15 feet away.
TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer is especially useful outside in early spring when ants emerge and attempt to enter the house. Use again in the fall when ants attempt to come inside for the winter.
Follow these tips to ensure the most effective control of unwanted home invaders.
Ants: Focus your treatment in key areas outside the house, where you suspect ants are entering the structure, such as around downspouts and gutters, near windowsills and door openings. Spray ants directly where possible. Seal up any visible exterior cracks where ants can be seen entering the home. Spray ant trails, hills, ant mounds and other areas of entry and infestation.
Carpenter Ants: Carpenter ants usually come from an outside colony and enter your house looking to establish a satellite colony in an area containing water-damaged wood. Carpenter ants are easy to identify because they are larger than all other ants. Often you will find them living in wood that has been in contact with water, such as around downspouts and gutters, near windowsills and door openings, close to leaking water pipes, or around decks.
Carpenter ants are most active between dusk and dawn — locate their outside trails during this time. Carpenter ants follow distinct trails such as edges of landscape timbers, along the ground close to outside walls, near downspouts or along the edge of an outside wall. Apply TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer to all areas where you suspect ants are entering the home. Seal any visible exterior cracks where ants can be seen entering the home. If you find the main colony outside in the yard, treat the areas where ants are seen entering the main colony.
Spiders: Spray directly on spiders and webs.
Other crawling insects: To control cockroaches, boxelder bugs, crickets, sowbugs, and multicolored Asian lady beetles, focus your treatment in key areas outside your house where you suspect these insects are entering. Check downspouts and gutters, near windowsills and door openings. Spray insects directly where possible and seal up any visible exterior cracks where crawling insects can be seen entering the home.
