How to Keep Spiders, Ants and other Insects Out of Your House
as Falling Temperatures Drive them Indoors
Lititz, PA—Oct. 17, 2012—Fall is the time of year when cooler temperatures start driving spiders, cockroaches, ants and other insects indoors. This year, stop these pesky fall invaders in their tracks with a few simple tips from TERRO®, the industry leader in DIY pest control products.
“The best way to keep spiders, ants and other pests from migrating indoors is to set up a border control around the perimeter of your home,” says Stew Clark, Director of Research at TERRO. “Treating the foundation around your house with a couple of easy-to-use products that kill on contact and deliver long-lasting residual repellency will keep unwanted insects from invading your home this fall.”
Establish Point-of-Entry Barriers
As ants, cockroaches, fleas and other insects scurry to seek shelter from the cold, Clark recommends blocking points-of-entry around your house with TERRO® Outdoor Ant Killer with Multi-Purpose Insect Control. “These powerful outdoor ant killer granules not only knock out ants and other pests on contact, they provide long-lasting residual control to stop future home invasions.”
The TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer granules are packaged in a convenient, re-sealable Shaker Bag for easy distribution around a home’s perimeter. To apply, just open the top, grab the handle at the bottom of the bag, and start spreading the granules by gently shaking the bag. No chemical spreader or broadcaster is needed.
Keep Out Creepy Crawlers
Keeping spiders - including the deadly brown recluse, black widow and hobo spiders – from moving indoors as the temperatures drop is a top priority for many homeowners. Treating the outdoor places where spiders like to hide with TERRO Spider Killer provides the protection needed to keep them from sneaking in.
Convenient and easy-to-use, TERRO Spider Killer is also highly effective against ants, cockroaches, scorpions, ticks, silverfish, Asian lady beetles and bedbugs.
“What’s great about TERRO Spider Killer is that it kills pests instantly, immediately easing the stress of a dreaded creepy crawler entering the home. It also provides long-term protection up to 12 weeks, which is reassuring to homeowners,” says Clark. The product is safe to use both indoors and outdoors.
“Spiders and scorpions are often found in woodpiles, heaps of dead leaves or anywhere debris builds up,” concludes Clark. “In addition to spraying these areas, removing debris around your home will lessen the possibility of any unwanted guests coming in.”

The 411 by Maria:
I am not afraid of many things but I am afraid of spiders. No matter how big they are, I actually cringe. In fact, writing about them right now is giving me the creeps and makes me feel like one is crawling on me.
The spider spray was exciting to receive but even the can gives me the creeps. The picture of the spider is just too big and I get the hebe jebes whenever I pick it up but I am thrilled to spray it. Listen, don't get me wrong, I know that spiders are good for us and take care of a lot of the other annoying bugs and as long as they stay out of my house, they are fine. However, keeping them out of my house is a priority of mine. I have been bitten and do not do well with spider bites. I will do anything to keep them out and spraying this spray liberally around my house has become one of my favorite things to do.
If you are like me, you will undoubtedly want this at the ready for when you spot an eight legger!
