Product Description:

Long-lasting and weather-resistant, TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus granules kill entire colonies of outdoor ants – including carpenter ants. Our best ant killer also eliminates cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, silverfish, slugs and snails.

How Lawn Ant Control Works

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 pests outdoors, keeping an indoor invasion at bay.

Ants are drawn to the sweet ingredients in TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait. The ant perimeter, which is borate-based and formulated with a concern for the environment, has a delayed effect on ants.

While the active ingredient in our ant killer 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. A slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the ant perimeter and deliver enough bait to the rest of the colony and the queen — this is the only way to kill ants in the yard and eradicate the entire colony.

Long-lasting and Effective Ant Killer

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.

    I drove all over town looking for this item and not one store carried it in my town (Lowe's, Menards, Ace, Kmart, Target). This stuff in my opinion is the only thing that works because the ants eat it, bring it back to the queen, she eats it and dies. I had a huge ant hill by my basement window and tried other products that didn't work. After using the Terro Ant Bait, the colony seems to be gone.

    Amazon Review By Jessica Elliot

    So I made the mistake first of putting this directly on the mounds. It didn't appear to do anything at all. The ants merely relocated and then came back after a while to the same spot. So instead I used it as a barrier around the house. With over 20 trees in my yard, ants are a major problem. Normally we start getting ants into the house in early spring. I applied this according to the directions all around the house as a barrier and so far only one ant has entered the house. It will be interesting to see how this works over time. I like the container and it is easy to pour and hold. I would purchase again as I've seen results when used as a barrier. Now I need to find something to address the mounds.

    Q.Can Perimeter Ant Bait Plus be used around landscaping shrubs and flowering plants?
    A. The Directions for Use for the Perimeter Ant Bait Plus offer instructions for using the granular bait in flower gardens and around ornamentals, ground cover and shrubs. However, we do recommend using this product on edible plants or crops.
    Q.Can this stuff also be used inside. I have ants behind my kitchen cabinets. They come up from the wall and through the kitchen counter. Could I drop some if it back there and be okay?
    A. Within the home we offer instructions for applying the granular ant bait in crawl spaces, attics, cellars, basements and garages. For use in kitchens, we recommend one of our liquid ant bait products- either TERRO® Liquid Ant Killer or TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits. They can very easily be placed around kitchen counters and kitchen cabinets, wherever you see ant activity.

The species of ant determines whether they live underground, in mounds built at ground level, in wood structures or in plants or trees.

    More About Ants


    I love your Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait but I also have other insects invading my. Do you have a product that will get rid of more than just ants?

    We do! We recommend using TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus to battle multiple outdoor pest invasions. Long lasting and weather resistant, the ant bait granules not only kill entire colonies of outdoor ants – including carpenter ants - it also is effective against cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, silver fish, slugs and snails.

    The ants consume the bait and transport the food back to the colony and share it - that’s how entire colonies are eradicated. Within a few days, you will see significantly fewer ants and insects in your yard.
