Q.I am interested in this spray product but worried about my dogs and anyone inhaling the spray. The infestation in my home and perimeter of my home is horrible. After following their many different trails, I suspect their home is outside. Do you suggest I spray this outside? I don’t want to lure them in the house. Also, how and when do I clean the area (with all the dead ants that I hope to see!) After 6 weeks? With just any rag? Thank you!
A.

This product can be used both indoors and outdoors. We recommend keeping children and pets away from the treated area until the spray has dried. The treated area does not need to be cleaned after it has been sprayed, however, if you wish to you can use soap and water.

Q.I am wondering how effective this spray, Terro Ant Killer Spray, is against fleas. Specifically, I know I may have human fleas infesting my home, based on the specimens caught in non-baited glue traps that were given to me by my local county vector control agency, which were then examined in their laboratory. The agency's reporting back to me by email was how I found out I had human fleas in my home.
A.

This product can be used to control ants, spiders, Asian lady bird beetles, black widow spiders, cockroaches, crickets, scorpions and silverfish. It has not been tested for fleas.

Q.Is this product safe around dogs?
A.

We recommend keeping adults, children, and pets out of the treated area until the spray has dried. Also ensure that they are not able to come in contact with the product directly or through drift when applying.

Q.If this only kills on contact why does it say it continues to kill for up to 6 weeks? Can I not spray a crack and be ensured ants will not come through for 6 weeks?
A.

This product has a residual effect that will last up to 6 weeks. If an ant were to crawl through the crack, they would come in contact with the product which will work against then and cause them to expire.

Q.is this product safe to use on carpet and leather like a car interior?
A.

Testing has not been done on these surfaces, as it is usually recommended for cracks, crevices, baseboards, etc. Test a small area first for staining.

Q. I have an African grey parrot and sugar ants are coming in the house and getting in her cage I need to know a safe way to get rid of them without harming my bird and keep them out of the house
A.

When spraying this product, it is recommended to keep adults, children, or pets out of the treated area until the spray has dried. It is important to ensure that the spray does not come in contact with adults, children, or pets through drift.

Our liquid ant baits can also be used indoors or outdoors, along ant trails or entry points to help prevent them from coming indoors. We recommend keeping the liquid baits out of reach of children and pets.

Q.If I were to spray this in a hole on the wall suspected of nest, what if it did not kill off the colony as I had sealed the hole? will my wall be screwed?
A.

This spray is made to kill on contact and will not have any residual effect. Our TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits (Model #T300) however, are made to be taken back to the colony by the ants to kill them at the source. These can be purchased at the following link: http://www.terro.com/terro-liquid-ant-baits-2-pack. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 with any additional questions.

A.

This spray does have a sweet smell. It should dissipate shortly after application.

Q.Good morning, I have a dog and a young child. How long after using the spray is it safe for us to be back in the area that has been sprayed?
A.

We recommend keeping children and pets out of the treated area until the spray has dried.

Q.I want the spray that came with the straw u could put in the nozzle to spray small cracks and crevices! Please help!

We apologize, the spray bottle with the extender straw is no longer available.
