Description

Product Description:

To kill common household ants, simply place the pre-filled, ready-to-use liquid ant bait stations near indoor areas where ants are spotted. TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits are specifically designed to kill the worker ant in two to three days, giving the foraging ants enough time to share the bait with the rest of the unsuspecting colony.

The liquid ant bait stations prevent the bait from drying out and provide the ants with a continuous supply of liquid, day and night.

How Does It Work?

This is a bait product, so initially you’re going to see more ants — lots more. Here’s why — as ant foragers look for food, they are attracted to the sweet liquid ant bait. Once foraging worker ants find the liquid ant bait, they consume it and drop what is called a ‘trail pheromone’ back to the nest that lets all the other worker ants know where a food supply has been found. This is why you will initially see more ants when using the liquid ant baits.

While the active ingredient in the TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits will ultimately kill the worker ant, it sneakily interferes with the ant's digestive system and works slowly enough that the worker has time to get back and share the ant bait with the rest of the colony.

Click to EnlargeThis slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough bait to the rest of the colony. This is the only way to get rid of both the ants you see and the ants you don’t.

The liquid ant bait station should remain as undisturbed as possible while the ants are actively feeding on it. Because this is a bait product, it is important to eliminate all other food sources in the area. This will ensure that the ants aren’t tempted to eat anything but the (deadly) liquid ant bait.

Where to Place Ant Bait Stations

Simply place the TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits near ant trails or areas where ants are numerous. It’s also a good idea to stop ants in their tracks by placing additional bait stations anywhere ants may try to infiltrate your home. For best results, use all six bait stations to ensure a sufficient supply for the unsuspecting ants to feast on.


Keep your eye on the TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits to monitor activity, but resist the temptation to interfere when you witness the ants coming in droves to feast on the bait. Your patience will pay off as you watch your ant infestation dwindle and then disappear.

When necessary, replace with additional bait stations when the first set is depleted. Once your ant problem is under control, replace the TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits every three months to keep the ants from marching back into your home.

 

Feeding Time

Now that you know how the liquid ant bait actually works and where to place the bait stations, it’s time for the feeding frenzy to begin. Break apart the bait stations, hold upright, cut off the colored part with a pair of scissors, and place the station where it’s needed. In a day or two, your ant problem will be a dim memory.

    TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits - 2 Pack is rated 4.9429 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Radically Effective and it's only been 1 week Got the TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits and the TERRO® Ant Killer Plus outdoor granules after seeing all the great reviews. My sister has been using sprays to no avail for several months beginning every June for over 5 years and didn't believe that anything would work. The pharaoh ants are not 100% gone but in less than 24 hours there was a markedly significant reduction throughout most of the house. A few trails resurfaced on day 4 but seem to have dissipated the next day. It's only been 8 days, so I am sure that my infestation will be completely resolved given the full 3 weeks TERRO® suggests their Ant Killer takes to kill the nests. Definitely worth it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work well I've always been sceptical of ant bait claims... until I tried Terro. A few years ago my wife and I were battling ants in the kitchen during the summer. In desperation I bought some of these Terro ant bait traps at the Big Orange Store. The ants immediately took to the bait and were quickly drawn away from our kitchen. Over the next two weeks, we must have wiped out several hundred thousand ants and gotten the queen as well, because they were completely gone for the rest of the summer. Now I keep several empty traps on hand and several bottles of liquid ant bait to use whenever I see scouts in the house.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job Big problem with ants this spring in my house, both carpenter and small, and the Terro baits absolutely helped resolve the problem. The ants line up like horses at a watering hole lapping the stuff up. In the case of the carpenter ants, a good 10 at a time but after a few days there were none to be found. With the more plentiful smaller ants, the problem took a little more time to resolve but ultimately they disappeared, too. The biggest challenge is resisting the temptation to just crush the little suckers while they're feasting and instead let the baits work their magic! Terro has made me a believer and I will be using the range of products each spring to proactively tackle this problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superfast results We were besieged by sugar ants, and tried several bait offerings to remedy our problem. A friend suggested the Terro :Liquid Ant Baits. We used three baits in several locations and after three days the war was won. We have not seen an ant since/

    Will this bait kill fire ants found in the southern US?

    Asked by: Anon
    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-dust

    Will this kill carpenter ants?

    Asked by: Blemay
    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.

    How can I remove the liquid Terro that ran off the paper tab on to my window sill?

    Asked by: Aaron
    To clean up any spilled bait we recommend placing a warm damp cloth on the area for about 15 minutes. Once the product has loosened it can be wiped up with mild soap and water.

    Terro is working miracles killing a shocking number of these ants just in the last 24 hours. My question is, can I start disposing of the dead/dying ones that are all around the traps? Or do they need to be undisturbed for a certain amount of time?

    Asked by: Dobby222
    We recommend leaving the bait undisturbed until the activity has decreased. If the ants are blocking the entrance then they can be removed.

    How do i use it

    Asked by: jj1960
    We recommend holding the bait station upright and cutting off the orange colored area. It can then be placed down carefully where ant activity has been seen. The bait will work to kill the ants that consume it within 24-48 hours.

    One of my Terro Traps got overturned and a great deal of accidental spillage unknowingly took place. Some has hardened, and the rest is very tacky. What solvent will clean it up?  I have chiseled that which was hard and removed it with a damp paper towel.

    Asked by: Kogle1305
    We recommend wiping any spilled liquid with a warm soapy cloth. If the bait has hardened, the warm damp cloth can be placed over top of the spill for 15-20 minutes. This will allow the bait to be softened enough to be wiped up easily.

    I opened a new package and 2 baits have clear liquid in them and 4 baits have golden color liquid. Are these still good?

    Asked by: RickR
    If the bait has turned a golden or amber color, it indicates that the sugars are beginning to crystallize. As long as the bait is still liquid and works to attract ants, it will be effective regardless of the color.

    All About

    Ants

    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.

    More About Ants

    FAQs

    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.
