Keep ants and other unwanted pests 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.
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 touches 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.

Let me first comments on the brilliant design of the package, for spot treating, i.e. in "flower beds" of shrubs, flowers, etc around house foundations, this is the product design one needs to get insect poison to those difficult places where a rotary spreader or even hand spreader will not work well. This product basically works like a huge salt shaker, and the granules are so light that the package can be handled with ease. Now to the carpenter ants: we had been having a problem with a lot of carpenter ants coming inside our house, from the trees in the yard, they come in not via the tree branches but from the ground. I used this Terro shaker bag of ant killer, along the two sides of our house where the ants are known to have entered and both are "flower beds" full of shrubs and an AC unit. Watered in the granules per the instructions, after a week, zero ants. Matter of fact we saw only one ant inside after the granules were put out and that is amazing as we were finding upwards of 6 or more per day earlier. I recommend this product for carpenter ants.

Amazon Review By Bowser B
The zip open bottom and shaker bag make spot treatment of ant mounds really easy. Just turn the bag upside down, unzip the seal, and you are ready to go. The poison is effective, too. This is preferable to reaching into a bag, grabbing a handful, and then dropping over and around the mound a few times, after which you rush to rinse the stuff off your hands before too much is absorbed through your skin. We know you shouldn't handle the poison, but we do anyway. This is preferable.
- 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.
I need to knock out an ant invasion quickly – what do you recommend?Since most ant infestations are linked to a colony located outside the house, we suggest using our fast-acting TERRO® Ant Killer Plus Granules for instant knock down of ants, cockroaches, fleas and other insects. This product also provides long lasting repellency and it’s super easy-to-use; using the convenient shaker bag, simply apply the granules around the perimeter of your house for an instant kill and long-term insect control.
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 with TERRO® Ant Killer Plus Granules. The granular ant killer kills pests on contact and provides long lasting residual repellency. The Ant Killer is packaged in a shaker bag for easy application- no spreader is needed. After applying the granules around the foundation of your home, water in lightly.
