1TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits - 2 Pack is rated out of 5 by 43.Rated 5 out of 5 by Smalls9 from Buh bye! I bought this plus another brand 12 hours ago and the Terro is definitely the winner. They aren't even interested in the gel trap. I recommend Terro!Date published: 2015-07-23Rated 4 out of 5 by Vince from Misery solver! I had been having trouble with those pesky tiny sweet ants. They were appearing everywhere throughout the house - even on the kitchen table! I researched all of the possible ant relief on the PC and Terro had the best reviews. So I ordered Terro's liquid ant baits in the hope it would solve the problem. When they arrived I placed the bait packs around the house. I then later saw the ants leaving a trail from several of the baits after eating the liquid. The following day I checked and could not find any ants coming or going from the baits. As a matter of fact, I could not find any signs of the ants anywhere!! It is now a pleasure to sit down and eat, etc.Date published: 2015-07-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Garwood38 from Very effective I bought the product on advice from a neighbor that also was being infested with these tiny (faro/pharaoh?) ants. Previously, I had been treating with sprays, which did not last very long. Several weeks after treatment, there has not been any recurrence of ants in the treated ares.Date published: 2015-07-21Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeM from Liquid ant bait review Sugar ants 90 % gone in 1 day and 99.9%gone in 3 days!Date published: 2015-07-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Charley from Outstanding product!!!

No need for costly pest control technician nor inconvenient scheduling.Date published: 2015-07-11Rated 5 out of 5 by Missy from The ants seem to be gone! I bought the Liquid Ant Baits two pack a couple of weeks ago. I had tried something I bought in the grocery store, but after a couple of weeks, it wasn't working. Eight days after I tried the Liquid Ant Baits, every ant appears to be gone. Thank you!Date published: 2015-07-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Danno33 from Worked like a charm! Ant problem began in spring time. Before i knew it they were everywhere on the main floor and upstairs, crawling on us as we sat on our couch or slept! Put 4 of these traps in there paths but out of sight and access from the dog and also some of the outdoor steak traps too. Within days they dissapeared. Found thousands of them dead in the basement, where i had never seen any prior, all down the unfinished side basement wall soon after. Amazing how many there were! My theory is they all migrated down there in search of cool temps and water because the poison was dehydrating them. They're all dead now and no more pestering from them.Date published: 2015-07-09Rated 4 out of 5 by Pozp from Ants be gone Took about two weeks but very effective.

what is the shelf life of the traps unopened and once open how long do they last??The liquid ant bait does not have an expiration date, as the effectiveness of the active ingredient does not diminish over time. You may notice the liquid changing color to yellow or brown, or the liquid thickening a bit. As long as the bait remains in a liquid state and is easy to pour, it will still work to attract ants. However, we recommend using fresh bait if you've had the same liquid bait for more than two years. Once the bait stations have been opened, we recommend replacing the stations every three months, or when the ants have consumed all of the bait.Date published: 2015-07-27
are these safe around pets?This product can be used as directed in a home with pets. We do recommend placing it in an area that is inaccessible to them.Date published: 2015-07-20
I set baits 5 days ago. Initially we saw swarms of carpenter ants drinking the bait and head back to the colony. Activity dwindled 2 days after setting the baits, now activity is picking up in other areas. No other food sources are available to them. WTD?This product has not been tested on carpenter ants. To best control this type of ant we would recommend a contact killer such as a dust or a spray.Date published: 2015-07-14

Will this bait kill fire ants found in the southern US?TERRO® Ant Killer Bait will kill the fire ants that consume it, but because of their distinctive behavior patterns, it will not eliminate the entire colony. If you do have fire ants, their mounds need to be treated individually and aggressively. For fire ants we suggest using TERRO® Ant Dust on the individual mounds. http://www.terro.com/terro-ant-dustDate published: 2015-06-30
Will this kill carpenter ants?Our liquid ant bait is made up of three main ingredients, Borax, sugar and water. This combination works to attract sweet-eating ants on the hunt for a food or water source. Although it is not their primary diet, carpenter ants do occasionally feed on common sweets such as syrup, honey, jelly, sugar, salt, and fruit and would be attracted to the sugars in TERRO® liquid bait during these times. Other ant species that will be attracted to the liquid bait are Argentine ants, pavement ants, little black ants, odorous house ants, crazy ants, ghost ants and big headed ants.Date published: 2015-06-27
- All About
There are more than 10,000 known species of ants living throughout the world. Like other insects, they have six legs; each with three joints. Ants have large heads with compound eyes, elbowed antennae and powerful jaws. Ants are social insects that live in structured nest communities throughout the world. The species of ant determines whether they live underground, in mounds built at ground level, in wood structures or in plants or trees.
Why are ants always invading my kitchen, bathroom and laundry areas?Ants are attracted to food, water and shelter. Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms provide at least two of these conditions, making it an ideal haven for ants to congregate.
What’s the difference between liquid and gel ant baits?It’s a little known fact that adult worker ants cannot digest solid food (bait). Their anatomy is designed for transporting and digesting liquids only. Solid foods must be carried back to the colony for additional processing by the larvae stage. Liquid baits exploit this unique physiology by making it easy for ants to transport the liquid bait back to the rest of the colony, including the queen, larvae and other workers.
How long does it take to eliminate an ant colony with TERRO Liquid Ant Bait?Remember, this is a BAIT ant control product and will initially attract a lot of ants. The ants consume large quantities of the bait and then return to the nest and share it with the rest of the colony, including the queen, eventually eliminating the entire colony. This process can take from just a couple days to several weeks, depending on the size of the colony. Each ant that consumes the bait will die within 24 - 48 hours. It is important to leave the bait as undisturbed as possible while the ants are actively feeding on it. You should replace it only if it becomes inaccessible to the ants, or empty.
