This summer I reviewed the Terro Fruit Fly Trap, which uses natural ingredients to lure and trap fruit flies inside of a decorative apple. It sits out on a countertop or in the fruit bowl and is a cute little decoration and, more importantly, it works! This time of year we have a different problem up here in the woodsy mountains.. my least favorite of all living creatures- spiders! Just writing the word makes me itch. Eck!
About Terro Outdoor Ant Killer Granules
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.
About Terro Spider Killer
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.
Ant Killer Thoughts
This review seriously couldn't have come at a better time. We have ants here year-round, in big piles around the yard. Even though they aren't out and huddle underground, they are still there. Now's the time to put out the Ant Killer to create a barrier and continue usage throughout the year. We have always used Terro to deal with ants and it works the best to keep them out of our home. We came home to a line of them from our living room window all the way to the kitchen!! Terro got rid of them immediately and created a barrier so they wouldn't come back.
The shaker bag is a wonderful idea by Terro because I don't like getting the chemicals on my hands and using a spreader is just too much trouble. The shaker allows you to spread the granules evenly in a line without ever coming in contact with them. Always be sure to wash your hands afterwards, though.
Spider Killer Thoughts
My very least favorite of all... spiders! Eck! Growing up we had those jumping spiders in our house. Now, here in the mountains we have scorpions and wolf spiders. Just so you know how creepy these little suckers are, I included a nice picture for your viewing pleasure. Just a few weeks ago I went downstairs to do some laundry and saw something move under a shirt. I lifted it thinking maybe it was a small spider or beetle and discovered what I thought was a black widow. I screamed my head off in horror, but it was just a wolf spider. After coming into the bedroom to find a scorpion only the week before I was done! It was time to spray the entire house immediately!
Like I said, I am very paranoid about using chemicals and usually use natural products, but sometimes they just don't work. Plus, Liam had two bites on him one morning and there was no way I would let that continue. I always wear a mask to avoid inhaling before using sprays. Spray in corners and along crack. I sealed all of our doors that spiders could easy come through. Then we sprayed out garage, which is our major spider den in the winter. I refuse to even go in there so, C had to do it for me.
I'm happy to report a major decrease in little creepy crawlers in our home. I have yet to find another huge wolf spider, thank God! I definitely recommend the Spider Killer for families in the country, woods, and/or mountains. So, ready to give it a try?
