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.

I bought several Terro Liquid Ant Baits a couple weeks ago and they shipped quickly. However, one was leaking, probably due to rough postal handling. Once I notified Terro online, they quickly sent me two replacement baits. So great service and fast shipping!Date published: 2015-09-21Rated 1 out of 5 by Monkey Man from REALLY I purchased these items based on a fellow employee telling me TERRO worked on his ant situation.

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 substituteDate published: 2015-08-06Rated 5 out of 5 by leebd from It works! I was getting desperate.

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.Date published: 2015-07-12
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
Is it a problem when rain gets on the bait?The bait stakes are designed to be weatherproof. If water were to get inside they would need to be replaced.Date published: 2015-06-24
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 steveOur 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-useDate 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.
