Ants can be a problem anywhere – in the home, at work and everywhere in between. To kill common household ants, place TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits in areas where they attract foraging ants that take the bait back to the nest. As the bait circulates through the colony, it kills the ants you see and the ones you don’t. The new and improved snap-off tab makes the stations easy to use. Plus, the closed bait stations prevent the bait from drying out to provide the ants with a continuous supply of liquid, day and night. Note: complete control may take up to two weeks.How Liquid Ant Bait Works Since this is a bait, initially you will see more ants – but don’t worry, this is a good thing. Why? As ants forage for food, they are easily attracted to the sweet, sugary liquid inside the bait stations. After finding the bait, worker ants consume it and leave behind a pheromone trail leading back to the colony. This trail lets other worker ants know where the newly discovered food supply is. This is why you will see more ants in the beginning.
Meanwhile, the active ingredient, Borax, is slowly interfering with the ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing it, but leaving enough time for the ant to go back and share the dose with the rest of the colony. This slow kill is necessary so that foraging ants can make several trips to the bait. The communal nature of an ant colony allows the bait to be spread to hundreds, if not thousands, of individual ants.Where to Place Ant Baits
Place TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits near trails and other locations where ants are numerous. It’s also a good idea to place bait stations anywhere ants may try to enter your home. The compact size of the bait stations makes them perfect for placement along baseboards, in corners, on counters, under and behind appliances, and on windowsills. The more bait placements, the better!Easy-Open Tab Each TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait station is sealed so the bait stays fresh until you’re ready to use them. To open the bait, hold the station vertically and twist the new and improved tab. This opens up the station and allows ants to access the bait. Place the entire station on a flat surface, keeping the ant bait inside the station.
Note: Some earlier versions of TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait required it to be opened by scissors. The new snap-off tab eliminates this method of opening, but some earlier versions may still be sold while supplies last.How to Use Liquid Ant Baits
TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits are very easy to use. Before placing the bait stations, be sure to remove other sources of food, such as crumbs, sugar and grease spots to prevent attracting ants elsewhere. Do not place bait where you’ve already sprayed insecticides, as the pests may avoid the bait stations.

Review RateDon’t work anymore
The new design of the trap is terrible. I never get one ant in these traps but the ones where you cut a hole in the bottom worked great. The ants cannot or will not climb up to the entry hole in the new traps because the hole is too far off the counter or ground. Bring back the original style!Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear about your recent experience, but we appreciate you letting us know your feedback! We welcome all feedback and use it to make our products better.
If you see that ants are not going into the bait stations, it could mean that they are not seeking sweet bait. In this case we would recommend using a contact killer, such as TERRO® Spider & Ant Killer, or using an outdoor treatment like TERRO® Ant Killer Plus. For additional information, please contact our Customer Relations Team at 800-800-1819 x 458. We are happy to assist in any way we can!
Review RateThe new design is flawed. Ants CAN'T get into bait station.
I have the old design right next to the new one - thank goodness we still had some of the old bait stations. As with other posts, the new design entry is to high for the ants and they crawl on by whereas the old 'ramp' style is FILLED with ants going for a feeding. BRING BACK THE OLD DESIGN!!!Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear about your recent experience, and we have passed your comments on to our Product Manager. When testing the new design, we found that ants are well equipped to find food in a number of hard to reach places, such as in crevices or along walls.

Review RateLoved product.
Used liquid ant baits for the first time 4 days ago. Initially disgusted by the large amount of indoor carpenter ants that it attracted. But didn't freak too hard because directions said that was to be expected. Day 2 same amt of ants but moving a bit slower. Day 3 ant activity significantly slower and many have disappeared (hopefully back where they came from to feed their queen). Day 4. . . traps empty and one loan crawling ants remain. Got him up with tissue . Told all of my co-workers who are also home owners about Terro as well. Also told my parents. 5 stars!! More than pleased. Even got the outdoor granules to protect foundation and set up a perimeter as well. #terroforpresident
Review RateNew design is terrible.
I agree with others that the new design is terrible. I had one old design left, it is full with ants. The new ones have not caught a single ant. Does not twist off easily and is too high for them to want to naturally go in it. Is there anywhere that I can purchase the old design, please?Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear this! Ants are well equipped to find food in a number of hard to reach places, such as in crevices or up walls. If they are aware of food, they will find a way to it.

Review RateWorks like magic!
I bought this to get rid of those pesky little black ants. It worked perfectly and as described in the instructions. Thank you!!
Review RateIt wasn't broken... why did you try to fix it.
I agree with many of the other post here. The old design was MUCH better than this new design. The top DOES NOT just snap off. I actually wound up having to cut it off. Then when it's off the package sits too high off the surface for the very tiny ants to get into. I actually wound up having to pour some of the liquid out onto the surface to get it to work. Please bring back the old packaging.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot a single dead ant.
Not a single dead ant anywhere. I had a trap set for about a month now and all I ever see are 10+ ants scavenging the trap and taking it wherever they go and yet they still come back.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
The active ingredient, Borax, interferes with the ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing it, but leaving enough time for the ant to go back and share the dose with the rest of the colony. Our Liquid Ant Baits are usually effective over the course of two weeks. If ants are still present after this period, you may be dealing with multiple colonies. Consider treating the outside of your home using products like TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus, or using a contact killer like TERRO Outdoor Ant Killer Spray. For further assistance, please contact our Customer Relations Team at 800-800-1819 x 458
Don't attract ants. I watched them ignore it. Weeks later, they still ignore it.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
The Liquid Ant Baits are irresistible to sweet-seeking ants. If you find that ants are ignoring the bait, they may be ants that are not interested in sweet baits, such as carpenter ants. In this case, we recommend using a contact killer, such as our Ant Killer Spray
Review RateNew design doesn't allow ants access to bait!!
The new ant baits do not allow the ants access to the hole. It's off the ground higher than the height of an ant!! I just went and purchased 2 6 pack boxes as well as the ant granules because we only use terro and now I basically need to throw the open box away and return the second! I love the product, every spring we use it but apparently whoever designed the new break off tabs has never actually used one. I expect a refund for my purchases.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear that your recent experience with our Liquid Ant Baits was not satisfactory. We will happily issue you a refund with the submission of your original receipt as part of our 30-Day guarantee. When testing the new station design, we found that the height of the opening did not have an impact on its effectiveness. For the same effective Liquid Ant Bait without the bait station, we recommend trying the TERRO® Liquid Ant Killer 1oz Bottle.

Review RateA HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT
I am very disappointed with these newfangled baits. The former ones worked. These do not, even one little iota. The ants just prance around the counters and totally ignore the bait. I am not a fan. I'll look for an alternative.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
