I found the baits messy. You cut them open and the fluid gets all over, also when you pick them up to dispose of them. I had more luck with the Terro fluid bait on its own. I may try the bait outside, as people seem to have had good luck with that.
Not sure after four days. As warned, initially there was a swarm of ants. Then almost nothing for a day. Now, the last few days they've infested out master bathroom. My concern is they don't seem to be coming, consuming and going back. They seem dazed and confused and running all over the bathroom. Last year I gave up on another bait product and called an exterminator to the tune of $350. Was hoping to avoid that again.
Review RateDoesn't work for me
Found tiny brownish ants on counter tops and the kettle. Bought this 10 days ago and placed six stations on the ant trail. It attracted the ants for the first day and I can see some were feeding inside of the trap. There were a lot more ants as expected, so I was waiting patiently. Then I noticed that the ants don't go inside the traps any more. They were more attracted to the sink area and avoided the traps at all. It has been ten days and still more ants than the original situation. It seems that the ants at my home are more attracted to water than food. So not working for me so far.Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
When placing these baits out, large quantities of ants will initially be drawn to the stations to gather the bait. The ants will return with it to the nest where they share it with other members of the colony, including the queen(s). Any ant that consumes the bait will die within 24-48 hours, however, it can take a few days or weeks to eliminate an entire colony, depending on its size.
The liquid bait acts as both a food and water source to ants. If the ants are no longer going to the bait, it may be that they are currently in a different phase of their life cycle or are searching for protein based foods. If the ants continue to ignore the bait, we recommend using a contact killer to help eliminate these insects.

Review RateIs it working or not?
The ants are attracted to the bait but it's been 4 days and there are more ants now than ever before. Not sure whether to put out another bait or wait until this one is gone?....sick of all the ants.Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
This product is a bait, so it is normal to initially see an increase in ant activity. The ants at the bait stations will gather up the liquid and return with it to the nest, sharing it with other members of the colony, including the queen(s). Any ants that consume the bait will die within 24-48 hours, however, it can take a few days or weeks to eliminate the colony as a whole, depending on the size of the colony.
If the ants are actively visiting the bait, we recommend to leave the bait stations alone until the level of ant activity decreases. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 with any additional questions.
Review RateEasy to use but not as effective...
I bought this item to kill residual ants left in a flower pot that I wanted to bring indoors for the winter. Perhaps some kill, but still have ants coming out of the pot.Response From Terro®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. This bait is designed to kill the ants that consume it within 24-48 hours. This allows them time to take the bait back to the colony to share with other ants. Depending on the size of the colony, it may take several weeks until a decrease in numbers is seen. We recommend continuing to apply the bait until there is a sharp drop in the number of ants. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 with additional questions.
Review RateI am trying to be patient!
I have been using this product for 9 days now. After a couple days I only saw a couple and I was so happy they were going away, but the next day a ton more started coming! Now, the same amount has been coming for the last 5 days. I was happy because they were at least contained to the area with the baits but now I am getting a lot of wanderers into my living room and my couch. This is my first time having ants and it is completely disturbing me! I lose sleep because I am afraid they will start making their way to my bedroom. I also am staying in my bedroom because of the ones in the living room. I know I might have a large colony or another one started coming but I am so sick of living like this I know it could take two weeks but since the activity has been the same for 5 days I am doubtful! I am going to stop and get more and get the perimeter bait and hope it speeds up the process. I cannot believe it is a large colony because it is my first time ever having them so they most likely aren't established, so is the bait even killing them or are they just enjoying it? Help!!Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
This product is a bait, so it is common to initially see an increase in ant activity. This is a good thing. The ants will gather up the bait and return with it to the nest, sharing it with the rest of the colony, including the queen. If the ants are actively visiting the bait stations, we would recommend to continue baiting. An individual ant that has consumed the bait will die within 24-48 hours, however; it may take a few days or weeks to eliminate a colony, depending on its size.
