Arm yourself against ants - including fire ants - and other annoying insects with this unique, ready-to-use ant dust. The waterproof dust won't wash away in the rain and will remain effective up to eight months. Ideal for crack and crevice treatments, as well as application directly to fire ant mounds, TERRO® Ant Dust can be used both indoors and out.
Apply TERRO® Ant Dust as a surface, spot, or crack and crevice treatment to indoor areas where pests crawl and hide. Apply the insecticide lightly and uniformly directly from the convenient, easy-to use shaker can or into cracks and crevices using a bulbous duster, paint brush or other suitable means.
Pay particular attention to service ducts; wall voids; areas around electrical equipment, water and sewer pipes; under and behind cabinets, refrigerators and sinks; around windows and door frames; along baseboards; in attics and crawl spaces.
For the treatment of ants, apply the ant dust to ant trails, around doors, windows and other places where ants are found entering the premises.
The amount of ant dust to apply will vary with the site but should typically be in the range of 0.5 lbs. of product per 1,000 square feet.
Outdoors, apply TERRO® Ant Dust around windows and doors, porches, screens, eaves, patios, garages, under stairways, in crawl spaces and other areas where pests like to hide. To help prevent indoor invasions, apply the product thoroughly and uniformly to foundations and crawl spaces where pests are active and may find entrance to your home.
To treat fire ant mounds, evenly sprinkle approximately one tablespoon of TERRO® Ant Dust over the top of each mound. Do not water in or disturb the mound. Apply when temperatures are between 65° and 80°F and allow three to four days for maximum control. Repeat application if ants are still active.
