Terro Ant & Spider Killer {Review & Giveaway}





This time of the year, ants and spiders are forced indoors because of the weather. However, her in Florida, it is a year rond issue. We Floridians will have 'bouts' with ants and spiders and need reliable products, which can be hard to find. We will get ants in all parts of the home. There is no rhyme or reason. You might see one and just kill it and not think much about it. But then a few days later they will seem to have taken over. Over the years we have researched home remedies, to no avail. Then, I was given the opportunity to review TERRO.

What a great discovery!
My worries are over!


ABOUT TERRO: 


TERRO® is the industry leader in ant control and has been a trusted brand for more than 90 years. Based in my home state of St. Louis, Missouri, the company offers proven ant control products, including liquid ant baits, aerosol sprays, perimeter granules and ant dust. TERRO products are widely distributed at all leading hardware, home center, mass merchant, food and drug, farm and fleet and independent garden center retailers nationwide.

HOW IT WORKS:


Outdoor Ant Shaker Granules:
Eliminate by Creating an Outdoor Barrier
Since most ant infestations are linked to a colony that is actually located underground outside the house, the second line of defense is setting up a barrier around your house. Once a house has been baited inside for at least a week, begin applying TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer Granules around the perimeter of the house.

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.

“Spiders and scorpions are often found in woodpiles, heaps of dead leaves or anywhere debris builds up,” concludes Clark. “In addition to spraying, removing debris around your home will lessen the possibility of any unwanted guests coming in.”



REVIEW:


After 6 years of failed attempts at fighting them I jumped at the chance to try TERRO. First, I was sent the Outdoor Ant Shaker Granules to try. We sprinkled the Outdoor Ant Shaker around the outside of our home. I didn't expect much as all other attempts had failed. Right away we noticed less ants. After several days, they were all gone. Wow! No more more spending money on failed attempts. For us, there isn't anyone but TERRO! I had gone through so much over this issue. Wasted food. Cleaning up the messes of us mashing them. There have even been times when they were in the coffee pot. I didn't get that. Then, one day my husband was eating beef jerky he'd made and pulled from the pantry. It was stored in a food storage bag. I looked over and I am like, "What is that"? OMG! He had ants crawling on it! 

The best thing about TERRO products, besides the fact that they work, is the ease of use! Their creation of the Outdoor Ant Shaker bag is simply a brilliant idea. No additional tools required for the spreading of the TERRO. I always hated using other products because of their way of use and it inevitably got on my hands.  



While you typically do not see spiders, they are there. It is important to protect yourself and your family from them. I had been bitten, by what they think was a brown recluse. I had the mark that kept growing. When I went to the doctor, they had to irrigate the spider bite that had become a large whole in my leg. This was to be sure all the poison was removed. I feel secure using the Terro Spider Killer in my home.
