Terro is America's leading liquid ant killer, and provides fast-acting elimination of the queen and entire colony. It is safe for use in and around your home. The active ingredient, Borax, is recognized by the EPA as being among the safest and least toxic chemicals available to consumers.
Terro can be used safely around pets and children. The inert ingredients are sweet food-based products similar to pancake syrup. The active ingredient is Borax. Borax is a natural mineral that is found in many consumer products and has been used safely by homeowners for years.
The ants consume large quantities of the bait and then return to the nest and share it with the rest of the colony, including the queen, eventually eliminating the entire colony. Terro ant killers can be used indoors or outdoors.
