Product Description:

TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits attract and kill common household ants.

To use, simply place the pre-filled, ready-to-use liquid bait stations outdoors in areas where ants are observed and secure 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 It Work?

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


While the active ingredient in TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits will ultimately kill the worker ant, it 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 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 thousands you don’t.

    Outstanding product. Nice job, Terro! By Uncle Joe

    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!

    This ant bait is simply amazing. By Guy Jr.

    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.

    Q&A
    Q.Will the Terro Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits kill carpenter ants?
    A. The active ingredient in our Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait, Borax, is mixed with sugar and water to attract and kill sweet-eating ants. Carpenter ants do feed on common sweets such as syrup, honey, jelly, sugar, salt, and fruit and would be attracted to the TERRO® liquid bait.
    Q.What’s the difference between liquid and gel ant baits?
    A. 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.
    Q.How long does it take to eliminate an ant colony with TERRO® liquid ant bait?
    A. 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.

    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.
