Giveaway: Terro Ant & Spider Killer Review

All summer we had ants invading our walkway. Our side walkway is stepping stones surrounded by pebbles which the ants were undermining. I was very excited to try the Terro Outdoor Ant Barrier Shaker Bag. I was all set to try it when a huge snow storm hit and I have not seen the ants since then. I guess I will have to wait for the warmer weather before trying the Terro Ant Barrier. According to Terro:

Since most ant infestations are linked to a colony that is actually located underground outside the house, Clark recommends applying TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer Granules around the entire perimeter of the house. “The Outdoor Ant Killer Granules are packaged in an easy-to-apply Shaker Bag™ that allows the granules to be easily distributed in a three- to five-foot band around the typical house,” says Clark. No spreader is needed to apply.

I was also set Terro Spider Killer which the snow did not stop a need for. Since the Terro Spider Killer was delivered I have not seen a single spider in the house. That is a very good thing since my kids like to yell when they see a spider and I have to drop everything to take care of it. Believe me when one is in the middle of chopping raw meat one does not want to stop, wash hands, remove the spider and chop again. From Terro:

Terro Spider Killer is a crack and crevice aerosol contact spray that is highly effective against spiders, including brown recluses, black widows and hobo species, scorpions, cockroaches, crickets and other pests. “Because the product kills on contact, it immediately eases the dread of having a spider enter the home. However, the spray has a residual control so it continues to stop pests from entering your home for up to 12 weeks,” says Clark. An extension tube allows the user to choose between a directional “stream” for crack and crevice treatment, or a regular spray pattern.

Do you have an ant, spider or ant and spider problem?

  1. Our biggest problem is the cockroach. I'd use the ant first because spiders don't bother me, but ants itch like crazy!
