TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes
- Product Review (submitted on July 22, 2017):
Didn't help any. After a week the ants had a bed built around a few of them!
Response From Terro®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and are happy to help.
Ant colonies send out scouts for food, even when they have a current food source. They have been known to actually hide a new food source in order to save it for a later day and prevent other predators from finding it. Covering the bait station indicates they are interested in the food and will return at a later time or they are building a colony right there to be close to the food source. When they do start to eat this product, they will die within 24-48 hours, sharing the bait within the colony. Eventually, the queen will eat some as well and the colony will collapse.
