Wipe out carpenter ants, termites and other unwelcome pests with TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer. This convenient aerosol spray kills on contact and provides long-lasting residual control, continuing to kill pests up to four weeks. TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer features a non-staining spray that leaves behind no unpleasant odors.
With its handy, two-way spray nozzle, TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer can be used indoors and outdoors as a coarse spray, or as a crack and crevice treatment to control carpenter ants, termites, carpenter bees, wood wasps, beetles and borers.
Carpenter Ant Killer:
For quick and effective control of carpenter ants, treat nests and the surrounding areas. Apply TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer around doors, windows and other places where ants could enter. Using the directional two-way stream nozzle, inject the TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer into infested wood, and cracks and crevices where insects may be hiding, living and breeding.
Wipe Out Wood-Infesting Insects:
To quickly kill termites and other wood-infesting insects such as beetles, borers, carpenter bees and wood wasps, begin by locating the area of infestation such as insect tunnels and cavities. Using the crack and crevice nozzle tip, spray the TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer into tunnels and galleries. In infested inaccessible closed voids, small holes should be drilled eight to 10 inches apart to ensure thorough insecticide gallery treatment. Take care not to contact electrical wiring or plumbing when treating. For termites, the purpose of this aerosol spray is to kill workers or winged forms which may be present. Such applications are not a substitute for mechanical alteration, soil treatment or foundation treatment but are merely a supplement. Not recommended as a sole protection against termites. For active infestations, get a professional inspection.

I have ants in one of my walls - they entered through my A/C. That was the original reason I bought Terro because of the great wand. I don't think they are all dead yet, but I spray in the wall periodically. I don't use Terro inside except for this reason, but I use it outside all the time. It kills ants on contact. Last summer I thought I had termites in some mulch I bought. I sprayed every day. So far I haven't seen this year also this year I saw fewer insects of all kinds because I sprayed my perimeter with Terro. I love this stuff.Date published: 2016-08-07Rated 5 out of 5 by rayray from great product works greatDate published: 2016-07-26Rated 4 out of 5 by Rockstar from Bug Killer Haven't used it yet.....but it came highly recommended.Date published: 2016-07-15Rated 5 out of 5 by teddy6650 from Nothing works on carpenter ants like TERRO. Even though we have an exterminator and the carpenter ants are mostly under control, we still occasionally have few ants get in. TERRO stops them reasonably quickly.Date published: 2016-07-06Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Kills with NO smell! I had some ants coming out of the walls in our home. We tried ant traps and all kinds of poison bait for them to take back to their nest to help eradicate them,but they kept coming back each year. I tried a very popular bug spray, but it smelled up the house. This year we tried your TERRO Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer & it did the job. The best thing about it,"No Oder'! I used it in the bedroom and didn't smell anything. It has been almost a month now since I started using it and no ants to be found! You can't go wrong with this product.Date published: 2016-06-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Millertimeinnj from Get 'er done! The cap allows you to spray or stream to target small areas. The formula doesn't have a horrible smell like some other products, none of the Terro products do. The product did what it said and even with a light breeze, the thick product made complete contact with the surface it was sprayed at.Date published: 2016-05-04Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveW from No ODOR This is one of the best that I have used.

Will this hurt animals if they get to the spray?Remove animals from the area before spraying. Do not allow animals to re-enter the treated area until the spray has dried.Date published: 2016-06-10
DOES THIS KILL WOOD WORMSYes, this spray works well to fight borers such as wood worms.Date published: 2016-01-26
We have seen carpenter ants throughout our house. I have been using liquid baits and have seen some ants eating from the bait. The population has diminished but I'm still seeing ants. Will this product work even if you can't locate the nest to spray ?The baits are designed to kill the entire colony of ants, even if the nest has not been located. This spray is a contact killer and will kill the ants sprayed directly. It will also provide residual protection for up to 4 weeks. However, it is not designed to eliminate the nest.Date published: 2015-12-14
