Ant Dust is a powdered insecticide formulated by TERRO® for dealing with problem ants and other pest insects or invertebrates. Each 16 oz bottle has a cap that allows homeowners to use it as a shaker or to draw out measured amounts of the ant killer through a larger opening.
Ant Dust can be used inside and outside in inaccessible areas where insects commonly hide.
A number of insects and invertebrates are affected by TERRO® Ant Dust, including:
TERRO® Ant Dust uses deltamethrin, which is a pyrethroid, as its active ingredient. It kills target insects when they come in contact with it -- effectively interfering with the operation of their nervous systems.
Ant Dust is waterproof, won’t wash away in the rain and continues to be effective against insects for up to 8 months.
Use TERRO® Ant Dust inside to kill pests, but avoid applying this product to exposed surfaces or in a manner that would introduce it into the air.
Instead, get a small paint brush and apply the powder lightly, in a uniform thin layer, to out-of-the-way areas, including:
You can also use a bulbous duster to apply it into other hard-to-reach places.
As an ant control product and general insect control product, this ant killing powder is highly effective when used outside. Applying it around the perimeter of your house will create a barrier to keep out ants and other crawling insects.
To properly treat the outside of the house, apply the Ant Dust uniformly around the foundation perimeter of the structure. With a uniform application of this ant killer, the targeted insects will die after crossing it.
TERRO® Ant Dust is approved for use against fire ant infestations, and the best way to do that is by treating the entire nest at once. Here’s how:
