TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits attract and kill common household ants.
To use this outdoor liquid ant bait, simply place the pre-filled, ready-to-use liquid bait stations outdoors in areas where ants are observed and, if desired, secure the baits with the stakes provided. The patented outdoor ant baits prevent the liquid bait from drying out, providing the ants with a continuous supply of food, day and night. Ants typically follow defined trails from the nest to food or water. Placing the outdoor ant baits close to these trails will improve control.
How Does This Outside Ant Control Work?
While the active ingredient in TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits will ultimately kill the worker ant, this outdoor ant bait 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. This slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the outdoor ant bait stations and deliver enough bait to the rest of the colony. Baiting enables you to get rid of both the ants you see and the ants you don’t. Complete control may take up to two weeks.

The ants seem to be attracted to this stuff more so than anything else I've tried.Date published: 2016-05-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Janey from Really Works I have a new Swim against a Pump pool and am spending much more time in the backyard. The ant beds were numerous. I tried several different treatments and they did not work. I put about 5 Terro Liquid Ant Baits around my almost acre yard and I don't have fire ants anymore. This seems to work. It took about 4 days. I am only in the second week but I am very impressed.Date published: 2016-04-13Rated 5 out of 5 by mumsy from Protect Your Garden Carpenter ants were living in dead pine roots in my strawberry garden and resented my working there. Terro took care of the problem within 2-3 days. This excellent product also removed the influx of house ants we get each fall in a few days. I'm now targeting my Fire Ant nests.Date published: 2016-04-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Dee from Give it time....it will work! I paid $125 for an exterminator last year and when he sprayed outside and a bit inside (I have grandkids who are crawling and big dogs so I didn't want to take any chances) he left me with several TERRO liquid ant bait stations. When the weather became warmer and the ants appeared again this year, like every year prior, I used the bait stations at several areas where I had seen the ants. Within 1 week they were gone. They will crawl in and out of the liquid bait station. This is what you want. The number of ants will increase as the word gets out that you have something they like to eat. The more ants the better chance that it is being taken back to the ant condo and infecting the queen and all the other ants who didn't make it to your place. Give it some time, resist killing any that you see and within 1 week or so your ant problem will be over.Date published: 2016-03-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimbo from The only thing that really works I have used the indoor version for years up North with excellent results. After moving to Florida we were over run with ants inside and out. I started using the indoor traps outside and they worked just as good. I just discovered these outside bait stations at my True Value Hardware and I can't wait to set them around our house. The 2 main things I have to say is don't waste your money on ant killers or insecticides....they are just temporary...... and not to disturb the ants or try to kill them....just let the Terro bait work!Date published: 2015-12-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack SC from Safe for outside Works outside without killing lizards and other animals. Really only the ants go for it and I have plenty of those.Date published: 2015-12-14
Can the outdoor terro ant baits be used indoors? Also does it kill carpenter ants? I put two baits near the window where I saw the ants but still no ants have come for the bait? Does it take a day or two for it to attract the ants?These bait stations contain the same liquid as our indoor bait stations and can be used indoors if desired. Carpenter ants typically do not have a sweet based diet. To effectively fight against them, we recommend our TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer products. http://www.terro.com/terro-carpenter-ant-and-termite-killer-aerosol http://www.terro.com/terro-carpenter-ant-termite-killer-ready-to-useDate published: 2016-01-26
What would you suggest for fire ants?The liquid ant bait would not be recommended for controlling fire ants. As an alternative, we would recommend the TERRO® Ant Killer Plus (T901-6) and TERRO® Ant Dust (T600).Date published: 2015-12-09
Exterminator found and dusted and sprayed a colony of Carpenter Ants. Killed thousands. I found 1 carpenter ant in my home with wings. A week later I found one in my home without wings. What is the best product solution for inside and outside for Carp.AntFor carpenter ants we would recommend a contact killer such as a spray, dust or granular product.Date published: 2015-10-15
Can you comment on recommendations or potential problems regarding pets in the areas you'd like to put stakes and this product?The bait stations should be placed in areas that are inaccessible to pets.Date published: 2015-10-15
I recently purchased these traps and the ants started to enter for about a day, but seem to be filling the entry points with debris(small pieces of grass, dirt, etc) blocking entryway to other ants. Is this normal?This is common as the ants try to "bury" the bait for later use since they view it as a food source. We would not recommend disturbing the bait unless they block the entrance.Date published: 2015-07-29
If I don't want to use Terro Liquid Indoor Baits (due to the mess of ants in kitchen), can I use Terro Outdoor Baits instead and will it be just as effective?Both the indoor and outdoor bait stations contain the same proven formula. If preferred, the outdoor stations can be used indoors as well.Date published: 2015-10-15
Can Terro Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait be used in conjunction with an outdoor spray and outdoor granules for white footed ants in Hawaii? Is one more effective than the other?For best results, we recommend using our TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits or TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus, model T2600 first, to eliminate the ants back at their colony. Once the colony has been eliminated, a contact killing spray or granule can be used to provide long lasting protection to stop other colonies from establishing on your property.Date published: 2015-10-15
if i'm still seeing ant activity in the traps, is there still liquid bait available to them? i am seeing a lot of dead ants in the traps, as well, so i'm not sure what to think about how much bait is left. when should i replace them with fresh traps?We recommend replacing the baits every three months. If there are ants coming to the bait that would be a good sign they are able to consume the bait.Date published: 2015-10-15
- 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.
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.
I just placed several TERRO Liquid Ant Baits on my deck and it’s attracting more ants, not killing them! What’s going on?You have nothing to worry about! Initially, you will see more ants. As ant foragers look for food, they are attracted to the sweet liquid in the bait which they consume and carry back to feed to the rest of the colony. On the way back to the nest, the ants drop what it called a ‘trail pheromone’, letting the other ants know where the tasty food supply is. In turn, these ants follow the trail to the bait which explains why you initially see more ants.
The active ingredient in the bait interferes with the ants' digestive systems, eventually killing the ants within 24-48 hours after consumption. This slow kill gives the worker ants enough to get back and share the bait with the colony. Baiting is the only way to successfully wipe out the ants you see and the thousands you don’t.
