Description

Product Description:

To kill common household ants, simply place the pre-filled, ready-to-use liquid ant bait stations near indoor areas where ants are spotted. TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits are specifically designed to allow worker ants to consume the product and survive long enough to carry the liquid back to the nest and deliver a dose to the rest of the colony. Complete control may take up to two weeks.

The liquid ant bait stations prevent the bait from drying out and provide the ants with a continuous supply of liquid, day and night.

How Does It Work?

This is a bait product, so initially you’re going to see more ants — lots more. Here’s why — as ant foragers look for food, they are attracted to the sweet liquid ant bait. Once foraging worker ants find the liquid ant bait, they consume it and drop what is called a ‘pheromone trail’ back to the nest that lets all the other worker ants know where a food supply has been found. This is why you will initially see more ants when using the liquid ant baits.

While the active ingredient in the bait will ultimately kill the worker ant, it sneakily 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.

Click to EnlargeThis 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. Baiting enables you to get rid of both the ants you see and the ants you don't.

The liquid ant bait station should remain as undisturbed as possible while the ants are actively feeding on it. Because this is a bait product, it is important to eliminate all other food sources in the area. This will ensure that the ants aren’t tempted to eat anything but the (deadly) liquid ant bait.

Where to Place Ant Bait Stations

Simply place the liquid ant bait stations near ant trails or areas where ants are numerous. It’s also a good idea to stop ants in their tracks by placing additional bait stations anywhere ants may try to infiltrate your home. For best results, use all six bait stations to ensure a sufficient supply for the unsuspecting ants to feast on. Be sure to place the bait stations where pets or children cannot gain access to them.


Keep your eye on the bait stations to monitor activity but resist the temptation to interfere when you witness the ants coming in droves to feast on the bait. Your patience will pay off as you watch your ant infestation dwindle then disappear.

When necessary, replace with additional bait stations when the first set is depleted. Once your ant problem is under control, replace the bait stations every three months to keep the ants from marching back into your home.

 

Feeding Time

Now that you know how the liquid ant bait actually works and where to place the bait stations, it’s time for the feeding frenzy to begin. Break apart the bait stations, hold upright, cut off the colored part with a pair of scissors, and place the station where it’s needed. Depending on the size of the infestation, complete control may take up to two weeks.

    Unbelievable By Renabird24

    I don't even know what to say because I'm still shocked and confused. We have a HUGE ant infestation in our Los Angeles home. We set 2 traps near just 1 of the 4 locations they were coming into. After 1 day the ants were gone! From the entire house! GONE! I don't want to jinx myself but this stuff is miraculous

    It just plain works By KICKNBACK

    Works perfect I had ants coming out of the light switch in my garage and walking down the drywall going behind a cabinet I didn't want to move a bunch of stuff and had no place flat to put it so I taped it on the wall in the middle of the ant trail at a 45 degree angle so they could get in there easy. About and hour later went back to look to see if it was working and OMG was it I was grossed out the thin line became about an inch wide line and they were taking the bait as fast as they could this lasted about 2 days then not an ant to be seen so I left it there for a week now and still nothing. I figure I will leave it there for another week or so just to make sure there is only a bit of bait left inside and some ants that got greedy and ate themselves to death. Also you can see the ants taking the bait I used my LED flashlight because I didn't want to touch the switch and you could see the ants carrying the bait the ones with the bait had a little bluish dot looked like a glass bead on there back Thanks for a great solution.

    I will not recommend. By dcm

    I ordered a large box of your product TERRO (8/33/17), I have put it outside (which got blown away sticking sticky substance everywhere). I also put them in my house. It attracted very few soldiers to carry the poison to the others. Some reason they have made their home in my bathroom which has made me very nervous whether I will be bitten etc. FYI they bite and also jump from one place to another so it is very hard to corral to spray with bug spray to kill them. I am very unhappy with your product.

    We are very sorry to hear about this experience and would like to help

    This product is designed primarily for indoor use.  We have the same bait in two products intended for outdoor use.  This will attract sweet-eating ants. Many biting ants will be looking for protein and ignore this bait. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 for assistance in finding the product that fits the situation.

    Best product I've found to remove ants By Ted Steele

    I've never written a review for any product before but I had to leave one here because I was so pleased with how quickly and effectively these traps worked for me. The directions stated to use all 4 traps, but since I was able to pinpoint exactly where the ants were coming in I decided to only use 2. (This was after I had used 4 ant traps from a different company that did absolutely nothing to help the problem. In fact, the ants got worse.) I placed 2 of these traps where the ants were coming in and within a few hours one was completely full of ants and the second one had many ants in it as well. They were moving very fast back and forth from their entrance to the traps as if they couldn't wait to take this stuff back to their colony. After only 3 days my kitchen was totally free from ants and has remained so for about a month now. In the future these will be the only ant traps I ever buy. Great product!

    Quit working ... By Auntie Not

    In the past, these terro liquid bait traps worked great. However, recently I've had the traps out in my laundry room for over 3 weeks!!!..it is like the ants just keep coming!! No let up at all.. I've now used 8 liquid traps, all drained of the liquid by the ants. It is like I'm just feeding them..Honestly, don't know what's going on, but over 3 weeks of waiting for these buggers to die off is more than I can stand. Tried to call Terro & they put me on hold for over 25 minutes!! really? that is just a ridiculous long wait, so finally hung up... Trying to figure out why this product is no longer working.

    Ants are unable to build up a resistance to the Borax used in this product and will die within 48 hours of eating it. It is not unusual for it to take weeks for this to eliminate an ant problem, especially if the colony is large or if there are more than one that are coming to the baits. It is only when the queen of each nest eats it as well that the colony will begin to die out.

    Very good product! By Sherina

    Looked up some products on Google, (Terro popped up) read the reviews and purchased it on a Saturday evening. Monday I saw a few ants and Tuesday I didn't see any. It worked...no gimmicks, and no extra stuff needed. Oh and I found it Walmart.

    Amazing!!!!! By Tosha33

    Fantastic!!!! Seriously, nothing else has worked before this. They are currently swarming and frantically going back and forth to their home- another benefit, because now I know where they are coming from for sure.

    Thank you for creating such a wonderful product, it truly eased my mind that we can get a handle on this By Kay

    Whoop! Whoop! finally something the truly works. And the icing on the cake is that it doesn't cost your weekly paycheck. We found large black ants in out class 3 motor home rv. They were up in the top where my mattress is. We pulled everything down from there and ripped up what we could to get to what is under the wood. Then sprayed with ant and roach spray, it brought out at least 1000 ants just in that section. This is when we knew we were in trouble. So we went to our Lowe's and there were other customers there with problems with black ants, one lady was just raving about how good it works and how inexpensive it was to boot!. We bought the six pack and put them around the area and we must have attracted another 1000 ants to the bait. Now it is two days later and there are only 3 or 4 around and they were dead.

    Q&A
    Q.My husband poured unused bait down the kitchen sink. What can we do to destroy the remnants of the poison left in the sink. It has been cleaned and bleached.
    A.

    The main ingredients in this product are sugar, water and borax. We recommend contacting the local waste management company for information on how to proceed if the product was poured down the drain.

    Q.I lost directions, what do you do to open
    A.

    To open, please break apart the pre-filled bait stations. Hold the bait up right and cut off the colored section. The baits should be placed label side up near ant trails or close to where ants are numerous. The traps should be monitored regularly for activity and replaced when the first set is depleted. When there has been a reduction in ants, we recommend removing and disposing of the product.

    Q.Can I put the liquid baits inside the pantry? Will it be safe? Thank you
    A.

    We recommend placing the liquid bait in a way that it would not contaminate food or food storage areas.

    Ants

    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

    FAQs

    Why are ants always invading my kitchen, bathroom and laundry areas?

    Ants are attracted to food, water and shelter. Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms provide at least two of these conditions, making it an ideal haven for ants to congregate.

    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.

    How long does it take to eliminate an ant colony with TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait?

    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.
