Terro® T2401 Multi-Purpose Insect Bait, 2 Lbs
Dealing with ant and pest infestations can be a chore for any homeowner. TERRO® Multi-Purpose Insect Bait makes it easy to keep insects at bay. In addition to eliminating ants, the multi-purpose bait kills other common insects such as cockroaches, crickets, snails and slugs — giving extra value to each application.
TERRO® Multi-Purpose Insect Bait is weather-resistant, so it won’t break down when exposed to sunlight, heat and rain, providing homeowners with long-lasting protection. And since the bait is packaged in a convenient shaker canister, the insect bait granules can be used to cover broad outdoor areas.

How It Works to Eliminate Ants:
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 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.
Where to Use:
To control ants, including carpenter ants, use our multi-purpose insect bait to treat exterior perimeter areas around the 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 noticed.
The multi-purpose 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 before damage occurs – at the beginning of the spring planting season. 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.
