Keep ants, cockroaches, fleas and other listed insects out of your house by applying a 3 to 10 foot band of granules along your foundation. Water lightly immediately following application. It is best to treat the foundation when insects first appear or when you notice lawn damage. For best results, remove leaf litter and cut back vegetation that touches the foundation.How to Treat Ant Hills To control ants (except fire ants), apply one to two teaspoons of TERRO® Ant Killer Plus 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.How to Treat Fire Ant Mounds
To control fire ants, apply ½ cup of granules over, and two feet 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. Be sure to water gently – use of a high-pressure hose may disturb the ants and cause migration, reducing the product’s effectiveness!Terro® Ant Killer Plus Check out this short video to find out how TERRO® Ant Killer Plus can help you rid your property of ants, roaches and other common insect pests."I get ants year round in my home.

Review RateDefeats Carpenter Ants
I had been fighting Carpenter Ants for 6 weeks... seeing only 3 or 4 a day ...bought every liquid bait and granule known to man, as well as trying “for sure” home remedies... the ants kept roaming around ... bought Terro granules, also cockroach gel bait, didn’t see the ants go to the gel bait but they were crawling and dying in the granules... 2 days later not an ant in sight... still nothing 5 days later... tempted to cancel the exterminator appointment I made last week
Review RateWorks well especially if used on schedule
Seems to work well. Best if you plan a schedule. Do not just wait till insects start to come back for best results.
Review RateDid not work
After two thorough applications, and more than two weeks later, we have seen no reduction in ants. NONE. This was a waste of money.Response From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateKeeping ants away from the house
So far so good. I've thrown down a perimeter around the house and the carpenter ants are no longer showing up on our porches when it rains. Now to do the yard.
Review RateI can't leave a review until I try it
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.

Review RateTerro Ant Killer plus granules
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?Response From Terro®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We are glad to hear how well this product has worked to eliminate ants in your yard. This product can also be used in flower beds to help control the ants found there as well.

Review RateHey Ant!
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.

Review RateLoyal User
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.
- 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.
