Long lasting and weather resistant, TERRO Perimeter Ant Bait Plus granules kill entire colonies of outdoor ants – including carpenter ants. The bait also eliminates cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, silverfish, slugs and snails, but will not harm beneficial insects such as ladybugs and butterflies.
Outdoor ant problems are an annoyance, but they can also lead to indoor ant problems as ants travel in search of food. TERRO Perimeter Ant Bait Plus is designed to kill ants and other insects outdoors, keeping an indoor invasion at bay. Ants are drawn to the sweet ingredients in TERRO Perimeter Ant Bait. The bait, which is borate-based and formulated with a concern for the environment, has a delayed effect on ants. A slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough bait to the rest of the colony and the queen — this is the only way to eradicate the entire colony. While the active ingredient in the bait will ultimately kill the worker ant, it works slowly enough that the worker has time to get back and share the bait with the rest of the colony, including the queen.
TERRO Perimeter Ant Bait Plus granules are packaged in a 2 lb. shaker bottle, making it easy to spread the granules around the perimeter of a typical house — no spreader is needed. Long-lasting, the weather-resistant granules won’t break down when exposed to the elements. It will stand up to sunlight, heat and rain, and remain effective until consumed by the ants and other unwanted insects.
