Killing ants, fire ants, cockroaches, fleas and other unwanted insects. The multipurpose, fast-acting ant killer granules knock out ants and other insects on contact and deliver long-lasting residual repellency. The easy-to-use shaker bag allows you to safely treat the perimeter of your home without handling the product. Economical 12 pack.

Product Description:

Keep ants and other unwanted insects out of your house with TERRO® Ant Killer Plus with Multi-Purpose Insect Control. Use this product as a perimeter treatment around the foundation of your house to keep ants – including fire ants – cockroaches, fleas and other insects from entering your home. The powerful ant killer granules kill pests on contact and provide long-lasting residual repellency.

Make a Perimeter Around Your House

TERRO® Ant Killer Plus is packaged in a convenient, re-sealable Shaker Bag which allows the granules to be easily distributed around the perimeter of your house. Just open the top, grab the handle at the bottom of the bag, and start spreading the ant killer granules. No chemical spreader or broadcaster is needed.

This product is ideal as part of a two-step ant control process. Use TERRO® Ant Killer Plus granules in conjunction with TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits indoors to eliminate ants inside and prevent outdoor ants from re-infesting.

Treating Around Foundations

Keep ants, cockroaches, fleas, waterbugs, milipedes, mites, silverfish, sowbugs, crickets and earwigs out of your house by applying a three to 10 foot band of granules near the house foundation. Water lightly immediately after application. It is best to treat the foundation when insects first appear or when you notice lawn damage. For best results, leaf litter should be removed from the foundation area and vegetation that touch the foundation should be cut back.

Treating Ant Hills and Fire Ant Mounds

To control ants (except fire ants), apply one to two teaspoons over and around ant hills; water lightly immediately following application. If the soil is dry, water lightly before application to bring the ants closer to the surface for better control. For difficult ant infestations, use both a broadcast and spot treatment. To control fire ants, apply ½ cup of ant killer granules over and around each fire ant mound. Immediately following application, water the product in completely, applying a minimum of one gallon of water to each mound area. To prevent the disturbance of the fire ants, water gently – use of a high pressure hose may disturb the ants and cause migration, reducing the product’s effectiveness. For best results, apply in cool weather between 65 and 80, or in early morning or late evening hours.

    Terro is an excellent product if applied faithfully. By Rene

    With the most convenient distribution bag for the Terro product I cover about a two to three foot perimeter around the house in order to keep the bugs away. I apply the product twice a year and it does the trick. In the meantime my neighbor was stung twice by a red ant in his foot with a visit to the on call doctor. I made a believer out of him and he is now copying me.

    So far, very impressive... By psidrop1

    So far, the Terro Ant Killer plus granules are working, as advertised. The fire ant colonies in the yard had became resistant to other off-the-shelf treatments. Following the directions, I applied the first application as a spot treatment, second application was more broadcast. Heading into May with no mounds in the yard!!

    I can't leave a review until I try it By Precisionbrown

    I bought 3 bags of the Terro ant dust for my lawn but I'm still not sure how to dispense it. Will it kill my grass because I have tons of anthills. It says on a watered lawn but I don't understand if it's waterproof why would I have to water first?

    Response From Terro®
    Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative

    This product is designed to be used on lawns, and so it will not kill the grass. It should be watered in so that it penetrates enough to get to the ants underground.

    Terro Ant Killer plus granules By Kym

    I get ants year round in my home. After trying other brands of the granules to little and short lasting results I bought the Terro ant killer plus granules, spread around the outside perimeter of my house and within a week there were no ants in my home. Great product and works as well as industrial grades. I'm looking for something that would work as well in my flower bed, have ant mounds all around my flowers so need something safe for them. Any recommendations?

    Hey Ant! By Bon

    We gave applied this for a couple years. Saw a decline of ants on the porch. I think using a combination of the liquid ant baits inside plus the bag of granules outside is a sure solution to those ants. In other countries such as Brazil they just let them run over the whole place inside and out. The ants can be found in sugar canisters. In America we are all about making sure they dont come inside. I read the black ants they are just looking for a souce of water for the colony.

    Loyal User By J in LA

    I have used this product for years. I started in Illinois when I had an ant and silver fish infestation and in Louisiana to help thwart cock roaches from over taking the neighborhood. In both cases I have had great success! When used in IL for ants and silverfish I noticed results within about a month. As in Louisiana, I found dead roaches after about a week.

    Great By Clark

    I received this product just in time. My front lawn area had been overrun with large ants. I applied as directed and noticed an immediate retreat of the ants. Glad I found this.

    Q.Does "watered in" mean to water until the granules are completely dissolved?

    The granules are coated with an insecticide that rinses off when sprinkled with water. The water then rinses the insecticide into the ground where it can get to where the insects live, killing them on contact. Once this process has occurred, then the product has been "watered in".

    Q.Is this product pet friendly?

    We recommend keeping pets off of the treated area until this product has been watered in and your lawn is dry.

    Q.Is your granular ant killer safe for plants and bushes? They are in our flower bed. How soon after applying can I plant new plants?

    When used as directed, this product should not be harmful to non-edible plants and bushes that are already planted in your flower bed. No specific testing has been done to determine when to plant new plants after this product has been applied, and we recommend contacting your local county extension, who should be able to assist with soil testing.

    All About


    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.

    More About Ants


    What’s the difference between liquid and gel ant baits?

    It’s a little known fact that adult worker ants cannot digest solid food (bait). Their anatomy is designed for transporting and digesting liquids only. Solid foods must be carried back to the colony for additional processing by the larvae stage. Liquid baits exploit this unique physiology by making it easy for ants to transport the liquid bait back to the rest of the colony, including the queen, larvae and other workers.


    I just placed TERRO® Ant Killer in my kitchen and it’s attracting more ants, not killing them! What’s going on?

    You have nothing to worry about! Initially, you will see more ants. As ant foragers look for food, they are attracted to the sweet liquid in the bait which they consume and carry back to feed to the rest of the colony and the queen. On the way back to the nest, the ants drop what it called a ‘trail pheromone’, letting the other ants know where the tasty food supply is. In turn, these ants follow the trail to the bait which explains why you initially see more ants.

    The active ingredient in the bait interferes with the ants' digestive systems, eventually killing the ants within 24-48 hours after consumption. This slow kill gives the worker ants enough to get back and share the bait with the colony. Baiting is the only way to successfully wipe out the ants you see and the thousands you don’t.


    What is the best way to treat an unusually large ant invasion?

    Ant populations that have become quite large sometimes require more than one treatment. We recommend the following two-step process to control large infestations.


    STEP #1 –Bait Worker Ants
    The first step to successfully controlling ants is to lure worker ants – those that you see marching around inside your house – to TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits. The ants will consume the bait and carry it back to the nest to feed the Queen and the rest of the colony. While the insecticide 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 colony.

    STEP #2- Create an Outdoor Barrier
    Since most ant infestations are linked to a colony that is located underground outside the house, the second line of defense is setting up a barrier around the perimeter of your house
