TERRO® Ant Dust - 12 Pack
Take control of pests inside and out with TERRO® Ant Dust - 12 Pack. This waterproof powder kills on contact and lasts up to 8 months. Killing fire ants, carpenter ants, cockroaches, spiders and much more makes this a staple for any household. To help prevent and control invasions, apply TERRO® Ant Dust thoroughly and uniformly to foundations and crawl spaces where pests are active and may find entrance to your home. The dust acts as a barrier that the ants and other insects must crawl through, ensuring contact and therefore killing them.
Easy to Apply TERRO® Ant Dust comes in a convenient, easy-to-use shaker can. Just twist the inner cap to allow a scatter of dust through small holes or a wide spread option through the large opening. Twist again to close or adjust!
How to Treat an Ant Mound
To treat fire ant mounds, evenly sprinkle approximately one tablespoon of TERRO® Ant Dust over the top of each mound. Do not water in or disturb the mound. Apply when temperatures are between 65° and 80°F and allow three to four days for maximum control. Repeat application if ants are still active.
How To Apply Indoors Apply lightly and uniformly to infested area. Pay attention to cracks and crevices, service ducts, false floors and ceilings, wall voids, around electrical and telephone fittings and equipment, around water and sewer pipes, under and behind cabinets, refrigerators and sinks; around windows and door frames; along base-boards; in attics and crawl spaces. The amount to be applied will vary with the site but should usually be in the range of 0.5 lb of product per 1000 square feet.
How to Treat a Perimeter
Apply around windows and doors, porches, screens, eaves, patios, garages, under stairways, in crawl spaces, and other areas where pests hide. To help prevent the invasion of buildings and structures by these pests, apply thoroughly and uniformly to the foundation and crawl spaces where pests are active and may find entrance.

This stuff is AMAZING! I had those little tiny “sweet” ants in my second floor bathroom. They liked the water and toothpaste. Yuck. And I seriously had about 20 ant hills in all if the cracks in my driveway . I removed the toothpaste products. Sprinkled this stuff on the area they were entering the house and on every hill in the driveway. No ants in the bathroom within 24 hours and it’s been 7 days and no return. Half as many in the driveway after 24 ours, 5 new anthills that I treated. 3 new ant hills 5 days later, and at 7 days no new hills and just a few ants here and there on the driveway. So glad I read the other reviews and tried this. Tried Amdro ant traps first, seemed like it actually attracted more. Great product, great price, thanks!!!
I've used Terro ant dust, liquid bait, and granules for small pavement ants. I've had only a small amount of success using all three together. The small ants keep coming back, I can't kill the colony for some reason! I've been trying to get rid of the ants from April 2019 until today June 4, 2019.
We're sorry to hear that these small pavement ants keep coming back! It sounds to us like there are multiple colonies of ants at work. You are doing all of the right things and using all of the right products for effective sontrol, but we have a number of additonal control options to consider at http://www.terro.com/ants-control. We are also more than happy to work with you on a customized plan of attack at 800-800-1819 x 458. Give us a call!
Works great. Spread around the house perimeter; "feed" them with the bait traps outside in the garden. No ants in the house.
Best product I've come across that will get rid of the ants. dust one day, gone the next. Works on the small piss ants as well as the big black and red ants.
Seems to work as stated. Really took care of ants around my garbage cans. Been a week now and still no ants.
This product works - period. After repeated seasonal "invasions" by small ants I began using it as full perimeter protection around the exterior of my house, from beginning to end of the ant season. As long as I am careful to maintain fresh powder, there are no ants inside the house. As soon as ants hit this barrier they are sorry they tried. Also stops some other crawling insects as well. I only gave it four stars instead of five because, although the product is touted as "waterproof," rain will diminish its effectiveness and eventually wash it away, requiring re-application several times a season. This gets expensive. Nevertheless, fresh powder goes down and the ants stay out.
The product is absolutely great!!! This is the first product that I have EVER found to work and last! Great job Terro!
I've used many products over the years for getting rid of the ants coming into the house. Terro Ant Dust is by far the best product to use. I see the ant trail, dust the ants and also around the trail, in one day the ants are history.
Bought this last year for carpenter ants that are burrowing and nesting in my cabin's foundation. Sprinkled around all their entry points. When I sprinkle directly on them they don't die on contact and there is no evidence it kills them at all. I'm disappointed to say the least.
We apologize for this experience and appreciate this feedback.
This product will begin killing ants on contact, however the amount of time it takes to kill them will vary depending on how much they come in contact with along with other variables.

placed around the footer of my house and have not had an issue with ants since works great
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.
How do I keep ants from entering my house?
Since most ant infestations are linked to a colony that is located outside the house, the first line of defense is setting up a barrier around the perimeter of your house with TERRO® Ant Dust. The waterproof dust kills pests on contact and provides long-lasting, 8-month repellency.
What product do you recommend for killing Fire Ants?
TERRO® Ant Dust is an effective way to control fire ant infestations. The ant dust kills pests on contact and will continue killing up to 8 months, because the unique waterproof formula won’t wash away in the rain.
