Weather-resistant TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus granules kill ants – including carpenter ants. Our ant bait granules also eliminate cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, silverfish, slugs and snails.
How Lawn Ant Control Works
Outdoor ant problems are an annoyance, but they can also lead to indoor ant problems as ants travel in search of food. TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus is designed to kill ants and other pests outdoors, keeping an indoor invasion at bay.
Ants are drawn to the sweet ingredients in TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait.
While the active ingredient 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. A slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough of it to the colony.
TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus granules are packaged in a 2 lb. shaker bottle, making it easy to spread the granules around the perimeter - eliminating the need to use a chemical spreader. The granules are weather-resistant.
