Weather-resistant TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus granules kill ants – including carpenter ants. Our ant bait granules also eliminate 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.
While the active ingredient will ultimately kill the worker ant, it works slowly enough that the worker has time to get back and share the bait with the colony. A slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough of it to the colony.
TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus granules are packaged in a 2 lb. shaker bottle, making it easy to spread the granules around the perimeter - eliminating the need to use a chemical spreader. The granules are weather-resistant.

The only problem I have is that if I use it before the rain, the result is not as good as if no rain. But, label on the product says that it is Weather Resistant. So, I would put a question mark there.Date published: 2016-05-03Rated 3 out of 5 by marisol from Waiting for results I bought this product some weeks back but just got around to putting outside and around the house about 2 weeks ago - have not seen any results or ants coming for it but after reading reviews I will wait to see what happens and then present another review.Date published: 2015-10-11Rated 4 out of 5 by trish12 from great product bought this in order to eliminate crickets in my home.

I have used this products for years now and it works better than any other product out there and for less cost. Here is my testimonial...years ago I lived in Hawaii where there is every species of ants. They are quite menacing. I walked into Lowes and asked the fella in the garden section what the best product was to get rid of ants and he said 'TERRO'. I had never heard of the product before. He then said look at all these other products and how much they cost...you can buy the most expensive one here on the shelf and it won't work like Terro does. I have only used TERRO since. IT DOES THE JOB! Lowe's also offers it at the best price. You will not be disappointed.Date published: 2015-08-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Hever79 from Keeps the ants out of the house I bought this after we had numerous ant trails reaching into our house. This has kept them out. Have only seen one or two random ants but not the long trails.Date published: 2015-06-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review 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.Date published: 2014-08-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review 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.Date published: 2014-08-15
We have small ant hills around our yard. Not to many ants in the house. How do you suggest applying Terro Ant Bait. As mentioned on the back of the container - sprinkle an area of 2-4 feet out-around your house. Would the yard ants get this?This product can also be applied around trees, stumps, firewood piles and other locations where ants may nest. We also recommend applying along ant trails and in areas where ant activity has been noted.Date published: 2016-03-22

Is this product safe around dogs?<p>You will want to keep children and pets out of the treatment area until application has been completed. </p>Date published: 2015-11-10
I have pets and children. Once the product has been applied, is it safe for pets and children to be in or near the application area?
Can you please clarify a few things on this response about dogs? Q: Are you implying just while the product is being sprinkled? Q: Are the granules dangerous to the dogs if they eat them at any point?

There are more than 10,000 known species of ants living throughout the world. Like other insects, they have six legs; each with three joints. Ants have large heads with compound eyes, elbowed antennae and powerful jaws. Ants are social insects that live in structured nest communities throughout the world. The species of ant determines whether they live underground, in mounds built at ground level, in wood structures or in plants or trees.
