I use to use that same stuff here in South Carolina, but have been unable to find it for about the last 5 years. Where did you get it?

guess it has changed some since I used it. Mine came in a tube like toothpaste. You squeezed a dab on a piece of cardboard and in a few days, no more ants! I am sure this works just as well.

KRACKEER - I did find this which looks like a tube.

Photo from Google images

Do me a favor and do a search on GOOGLE for "TERRO ANT KILLER" and be sure to include the quotes. When it loads up select IMAGES from the left side and this will list many pages of TERRO ANT KILLER products photos for you to view. Select the one you like and click on that photo for the web link....

I think this may be called "TERRO ANT KILLER ii" what ever that means...

I got several pages of photos to view of the TERRO Ant Killer products...

Hope this is what you are looking for...

Thanks guys... I will check out Walmart / Amazon. I had heard it was available at Home Depot but I couldn't find it at any of the big box stores.

Didn't see the exact one I use to use, but I am going to be on the look-out for this stuff! They are my greatest fear.

Terro has been around for a long time. It comes in the bottle that you put a drop on cardboard, and they also have liquid filled baits.

I just saw the liquid filled baits at Home Deposit in Panama City, FL today.

I too spray around everything that touches the ground and then comes into my trailer.
X2 - wife was not too pleased when she found ants coming up from the sink drain.
