Amazon Review By Inna Tysoe
All we could find for ants in our local stores were Raid ant baits for indoors. And we did need something for ants. Some ants got into the kitchen through the wall but we managed to snap those early with spray. However, we do have a LOT of ants in the garden and they seem to be patrolling various areas around the house. The Raid baits seem to have mostly done its job but it has been weeks and there are still the odd dwindled patrol.

We recently got these Terro outdoor baits from Amazon to try. First thing I noticed was that they were quite large and so looked a little intimidating because I worried about my dog getting interested in them (he wasn't). They are simple enough to set up and place. They come with a pair of stakes for staking to the ground. When packed for storage, the stakes are a locking mechanism wedged between the actual bait and the platform base. You have to remove the stakes and twist the bait container which screws down and is pierced letting out the liquid bait that fills the platform base leaving a couple of small slits for the ants to enter. That means it's not easy to open or activate a bait by mistake.

Since we had already mostly gotten rid of the ants at the front of the house, I used these to deal with the ant run near the patio door at the back of the house. This seems to be a large ant colony since the line of ants spans a distance of some 30 feet from the wild strawberries around the outside edge of the concrete pation and up to the house by the patio door. I placed a Terro bait there. Like I said, these baits are larger than you might be used to, so you can't always get them right on the marching line and since ants seem to like following along edges I was a little concerned they wouldn't work.

It took about three hours before I noticed a steady stream diverted from the main run to the bait. So they definitely do seem to like the bait. Later on in the evening I checked and there didn't seem to be many ants visible which was odd. Thinking I might want to turn the bait around and re-stake it I started to remove the stake and ants came swarming out of the bait. So I decided to leave it and see what happens.

Approximately 24 hours later, the number of ants was severely diminished. There are only a few stragglers marching along the old route and maybe a handful climbing over the bait.

On the third day not much change, just a couple of stragglers. But no long lines along the edge of the patio to the house.

At the front of the house, the Raid baits have severely reduced the number of ants but there are still the odd straggler or two-and that took almost a month. The Terro outdoor bait seem to have a huge impact knocking out a significant volume of ants in approximately 24 hours and, according to the instructions, it's supposed to work for three months. I'm very impressed.

Amazon Review By Shel
Over the past few years I've tried every home remedy and commercial product around to repel or, as a last result, kill ants in my kitchen. This is the first product that has worked. My kitchen is ant free. I gave the product four stars rather than five only because I would have preferred an effective repellent rather than an effective killer.

Amazon Review By J. McHugh
Tried this on a neighbors recommendation. Had a big carpenter nest in our backyard, and we're seeing quite a few ants in the house. Within a week or so, it seems the nest was largely beat! We stopped seeing ants in the house. I placed all 6 baits outside around the perimeter of our home, and seems they did the trick.

Amazon Review By Eileen M. Greene
Giving it a whirl but I don't like handling chemicals so I wasn't thrilled about the gel-based traps where you have to cut open an area and then set them out.

Amazon Review By night player
Do they work?
Put two by my front porch and the ants just loved them. Climbed on, in and around and then they were gone. I check every day and see one or two ants going in the traps but not the hundreds like a week ago. By again? In a heartbeat. In fact when these are all used up I will reorder them.

Amazon Review By Diharduncfan
I have tried others products and this was so far the best product for getting rid of Ants. I completely stopped seeing ants after 7 days. The only problem I had was getting them to go inside the Bait container when I put this in the middle of ants trail. So I decided to pour out just a little bit of the liquid and they flocked to the liquid on the ground near the bait container. After that, I did not have a problem with them going inside the container.

Amazon Review By Susan S. Hutchinson
Best ant killer in the world. These are outside bait traps that work wonders! The have a pin that can be used to mount the bait packets to the ground so they don't blow away. Fabulous.

Amazon Review By Stephen T. Etheridge
My dad had a bit of an ant problem and used this product. Worked like a charm. So when I developed an ant problem in my apartment I set a few of these out. Haven't seen an ant in my house in about 3 months! Works great!
