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.

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.
Apply TERRO® Ant Dust as a surface, spot, or crack and crevice treatment, to indoor areas where insects crawl and hide. Apply the insecticide lightly and uniformly from the convenient, easy-to-use shaker can, or place 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; and in attics and crawl spaces.
For the treatment of ants, apply TERRO® Ant Dust to ant trails, around doors, windows and other places where ants are found entering the premises.
