Description

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 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best In this area have an endemic infestation of ti=he tiny 'sugar ants'. We have tries a variety of products including other Terro bait stations with only limited success. this spring I found the rectangular "stakes" and was thoroughly amazed and pleased at the rapid success. The last time I went looking for them I was unable to locate them where we shop so purchased these instead; again, amazing success. Within 24 hours our most recent kitchen infestation had disappeared. The Spiked rectangular product is a little easier to use but these are a perfect substitute

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! Just put it out. Found at least two black ant trails when the sun went down then placed the liquid bait right in the trail. Dude they were all over them in minutes. So dumped out a small amount on a rock, it looked like pigs at a feeding trough. That is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our ants love it! It does a good job of keeping the ants out of our house. We are litterly on an ant hill and when we put out the trap they go crazy for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always gets the job done! Ants from coast to coast don't like these little hotels. I used them very effectively on ants in Virginia and now in California. They have been the most effective Terro product i've found for killilng large populations of ants. just need to be careful on prepping a sandy spot to drive the stakes into as the plastic spikes don't always go down as far as in a grassy soil. if you have high winds, once the liquid is "out" sand may clog it a bit. Overall though, the ants check in and they don't check out. I highly recommend them! if they aren't at your local "big box" store, ask for them. I haven't been able to buy them in stores; just online.

    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

    Can you comment on recommendations or potential problems regarding pets in the areas you'd like to put stakes and this product?

    Asked by: Mathew
    The bait stations should be placed in areas that are inaccessible to pets.

    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?

    Asked by: Nick87
    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.

    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?

    Asked by: J9Hawaii
    Both the indoor and outdoor bait stations contain the same proven formula. If preferred, the outdoor stations can be used indoors as well.

    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?

    Asked by: J9Hawaii
    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.

    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?

    Asked by: sydd
    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.

    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. http://www.terro.com/terro-carpenter-ant-and-termite-killer-aerosol http://www.terro.com/terro-carpenter-ant-termite-killer-ready-to-use

    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.

    More About Ants

    FAQs

    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.
