You can generally buy Terro in Farm Stores, Walmart, True Value, etc.

We use it in the motorhome and the stick house
I used this also and no more ants. We were parked under some Oak trees in Mississippi and ants got into everything. I used spray and traps but still had ants until a friend told me about Terro. In a few days no more ants and I keep some in the RV.

where do I find Terro in Walmart? Is it near the pesticides or some other department?

Learned to carry ant powder and use around tires, hoses, and cables. We wondered what the white stuff was that we saw on many of hte RV pads at a CG in Mississippi. Our pad had white stuff around all the tires when we left. Use spray inside after finding where they are coming in and stopping that.

I found a product(expensive but very very very thorough)that I use for my home and for my RV (parked at home). It is TERMiDOR, the same product used by termite companies to "bait' wood and kill entire termite colonies. I located this at a "Do It Yourself" Pest control center. I have been using it every six months for 18 months and have NO ants, fireants, carpenter and and insects in general around the home and RV. Works by having ants carry product to colony and killing all. Copied this from their site.
1 Termidor SC 20 oz. (Makes 12- 24 gallons ) 100% termite-free in 3 months . Termidor SC is a non repellent for ants and carpenter ants. Outside use only. (Web Only) about $58.
Please research use around pets, I have no pets.
