Dealing with ant and pest infestations can be a chore for any homeowner; TERRO Multi-Purpose Insect Bait makes it easy to keep a variety of pests at bay. In addition to eliminating ants, the multi-purpose bait kills other common insects such as cockroaches, cricket, earwigs and silverfish, snails and slugs — giving extra value to each application. However, the insect bait is not harmful to beneficial insects such ladybugs and butterflies.
Packaged in a convenient shaker canister, the insect bait granules can be used to cover broad outdoor areas. And better yet, TERRO Multi-Purpose Insect Bait is weather-resistant so it won’t break down or lose efficiency when exposed to sunlight, heat or rain, providing homeowners with long-lasting protection.
Ants are drawn to the sweet ingredients in TERRO Multi-Purpose Insect Bait. The bait, which is borate-based and formulated with a concern for the environment, has a delayed effect on ants, allowing time for them to eat it, carry it to back to the colony and share it. This slow kill allows time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough of it to eradicate the entire colony- including the queen.
To control ants, including carpenter ants, treat exterior perimeter areas around home in a band two to four feet wide at a rate of six ounces per 100 square feet. Apply along ant trails and in areas where ant activity has been noted.
The insect bait should also be applied in a two to four foot band around trees, stumps, firewood piles and other locations where carpenter ants may nest. If the nest is located in a hollow tree or stump, apply the product directly into the cavity.
To control and kill snails and slugs in flower gardens and around ornamentals, groundcover and shrubs, apply TERRO Multi-Purpose Insect Bait at the beginning of the spring planting season, before damage occurs. It is best to apply the bait in areas likely to be infested during early morning or evening when snails and slugs are present and eating. Reapply every four weeks for satisfactory control.
