Terro Ant Killer GIVEAWAY!


I saw a post from Kailani at "An Island Life" (killer blog, fyi) about this new ant killer (well - I hadn't heard of it, so new to me) called Terro. When I saw the post, I thought  "I don't have an ant problem right now, so I'll pass on this one." Literally within hours, my husband walks into the kitchen & starts swearing about 'bloody ants!' which I thought was definitely Murphys Law. I contacted the Terro people & was excited to try this product, & thought I'd give it a month or so to see how well it worked.

A. B. says...

"I love your product and I recommend it every time"


I just have to say that every summer I have ants that come inside my house and every summer I do the same thing. All I do is go out to the store, get some Terro Liquid Ant Killer, put it in their path, the ants come like mad to the bait, and within a day or two they are wiped out. I love your product and I recommend it every time I here someone say they have an ant problem. I hope you don't change whatever your doing right and that you continue to make a great product.

I could not have been more impressed! We bought our house late last year, and it had been vacant for a while, so of course every roach, ant & spider within a 40 mile radius decided to make themselves at home. We contacted our regular spray people, and they managed to take care of everything - except for the ants. They were everywhere! The kitchen, lounge (or living room, as Americans would say), the back porch, the kids' rooms - MY room - including my jetted tub. They were in my tub! Nothing seemed to work - we got rid of our terminators, since they weren't cutting it, we tried store bought brands, home remedies, everything short of calling in an exorcist.
Well - then winter hits, and they seemed to disappear - which I knew was a small reprieve, until recently. They decided to make themselves known by getting into any open container & causing us to throw it away.

Anyone with a really serious ant problem, knows how hard, annoying & stress inducing these little critters can be. The wasted money with food, covering everything, checking on a daily basis to see where they've moved too once their favored spot becomes compromised. WELL! Terro was an absolute God send!
I was skeptical at first - to be honest, I figured we'd tried so many other options, that this one may work for a time, but I didn't hold out much hope. I was happily proven wrong.

Terro is really easy to use, I was given some liquid ant baits, which is a food based product - similar to pancake syrup & a death trap for ants. They enter the small capsules of honey like stuff, (it also contains 5% of Borax - which is what kills them) feed on it and pass it back to their ant brothers. Causing a "kool aid" type of effect and killing them all. (Was that too crass a joke to make ...?)

The other product I tried was some of these little grain type granules - insecticide, if you will (in a convenient shaker bag) that you can spread around the perimeter of your home, and this one takes out not only ants - but fire ants, bill bugs, grubs, roaches (sweet!), sod webworms, earwigs, crickets, chinch bugs, army worms and any other "normal" type of foundation bug. This one I particulary liked, because it isn't a spray, it's not going to spread, & you can use this one on lawns. I noticed with the sprayers we had coming, whenever they would spray around the edges of our grass - it would start to look dry & parched, which is not attractive at all.



Naturally, with any kind of bug killer, you do need to be watchful of where you put these traps down (such as, being careful around areas of food prep. and especially around kids). Honestly though - so far since we've had these ant killers protecting our home, I have not seen ONE ant. It's fantastic!! No more feeling them crawl on me when I'm curled up on the sofa (a complete pet peeve) and I'm mostly impressed with the fact that they claim "It Works!" - and it's actually something I can vouch for. It does work, it's amazing, and with it comes a peace of mind - since I'm no longer dealing with an ant issue. Terro is.

They also stock a variety of other baits - and for other pests. Spiders, fuit flies, termites - just check out their website out for the extensive list
