Product Description:

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 secure the baits with the stakes provided. The weatherproof 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?

The key to successfully controlling ants is to lure worker ants – those that you see marching about in plain view – to the sweet liquid ant bait, which they will consume and carry back to share with the rest of the colony.

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. This is the only way to get rid of both the ants you see and the thousands you don’t.

    TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST ant killer! I have purchased other brands of ant killer when I had trouble finding this product and regret that I wasted my money. The ants continued to multiply and come into my kitchen. When I finally found these again at Lowe's, within a week the ants were gone. I keep one AWAY from food near the window sill where they enter the house and I finally got rid of them. I will keep one there all summer. Don't waste your $$ on any other brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terro Outdoor Ant Bait I have been using the Outdoor Ant Bait for 4-5 years, it works very well for me, I like the plastic stakes for holding them in place, I place 5 or so around my house & 1 in my garden and this protects my entire yard, I can not however find them at Ace H/W, Lowes, Homedepot or Tractor Supply this year, having the bait staying in place while using the blower is nice

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product. Nice job, Terro! This year ants were swarming in Pompano Beach in September. I tried a spray 'perimeter' defense product. It kills ants but a few days later they just found another route into my home. I researched and found Terro Ant Baits for Outdoors. What a fantastic product! I followed the simple directions, placed the traps and watched the trails. In little over a week - they're all gone! I told some neighbors and they tried it and same result - they're all gone. Outstanding product. Nice job, Terro!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This ant bait is simply amazing. This ant bait is simply amazing. I put one trap down and ants were swarming withing a few minutes. Within a few hours the number of ants dwindled, and within about 1 day, they disappeared completely. I would recommend this to anyone that has ants. Ordered on-line for a larger choice and great savings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I HAVE USED IT FOR TWO YEARS NOW. This is hands down the best bait I have ever used. Be careful not to spill the bait when preparing it to be used. The best thing I found is to set it on a flat surface when puncturing the cup. Be careful when you pick it up it will spill. THIS WILL KILL THE ANTS I HAVE USED IT FOR TWO YEARS NOW.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality. It took about 2 weeks to see all ants disappear but they are all gone. I only used 4 of the traps so I have two left to use in a couple months from now. I also used the Liquid Ant Bait traps inside of the house. Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts the population down immediately. Hint-Ants switch back and forth from sweet to protein baits, so buy BOTH. That way, when they stop taking this sweet bait, they're taking another. This bait cuts the population down almost immediately. They sure go for this bait quickly. Keep the baits level when placing or you'll spill the syrup.

    Is it a problem when rain gets on the bait?

    Asked by: Kennythehorse
    The bait stakes are designed to be weatherproof. If water were to get inside they would need to be replaced.

    I have large black ants i think they are carpenter ants. they have large nests in the ground. they are black. will these outdoor bait stations kill them? Thanks steve

    Asked by: Steve81
    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. We do have two products specifically designed for carpenter ants. They can be found at the links below.

    How do these baits differ from the liquid ant bait stakes? Do they work the same or is one better for certain circumstances?

    Asked by: Tommy
    These bait stations contain the same effective liquid bait as the outdoor stakes. They can be used in areas where a stake cannot be placed, such as on a patio.

    Will the bait stations rid a heavy infestaion of argentine ants on about 2 acres; if so about how many stations should i use?

    Asked by: tony
    Yes, TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits are exactly the product we recommend for large outdoor invasions- including Argentine ants or crazy ants. With 6 baits stations included in the box, you'll be providing 6 oz of liquid bait. Which is perfect for larg

    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.

    More About Ants


    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.
