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 TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits 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 TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits 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 TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits 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 and then disappear.

When necessary, replace with additional bait stations when the first set is depleted. Once your ant problem is under control, replace the TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye Bye Ants! After trying other products that did not work, a neighbor told me about Terro. I quickly purchased online and anticipated arrival as the sugar ants were driving new and my family buggy! Upon arrival, we placed the traps out and within two days the ants were gone! I thanked my neighbor and now tell all my friends about this great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terro the Terrific to the rescue! Tried all the usual ant baits to no avail. Then discovered Terro Liquid. The individual ants in the raiding party soon became hundreds around the bait. Three days later...NO ants! This was a well established colony judging by the size and number of the ants that were attracted. Amazing product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HAVE ANTS, ONLY USE THIS PRODUCT I was told about this product years and years ago because I had a very bad ant problem. I was breastfeeding at the time and even the baby's drool left on anything would attract them. I even woke up one time and found them on me I believe they could smell the milk. I needed something that would work but with using a spray and was simple to use. This did the trick. I only put the baits out at night and removed them first thing in the morning to keep my children finding them. The ant problem was done only using them for 2 nights. It's wonderful!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stuff Works!!! Buy this stuff!!!!! My wife and I had a bad infestation in our kitchen. I bought some stuff that was supposed to be "maximum strength", but the ants kept running around. I Googled "Good Ant Traps", and Terro came up right away with high praise. I bought some, and within 24 hours we had almost complete control. Within 2 days, the ants were all gone. Thanks Terro - this stuff works!!!!!

    Is you product pet-safe?

    Asked by: Luisa
    The active ingredient in this product is borax which is found in many household products. You can use this with confidence around pets, however we recommend placing the bait in an area inaccessible to pets and children.

    We placed traps down on Tuesday and as of this morning, it appeared that the ants were dying out. When we got home this evening, the ants were back in full swing. Is this normal or should we put out new traps?

    Asked by: Tayler
    Yes this is normal. These baits attract the majority of the ants in a colony to take it back with them to the full colony. Once they take it back, the ants will eat the bait and die. We recommend removing the baits when you see a decrease in activity.

    How many baits are in each pack?  Can they be placed between the window & the screen on the outer side of the glass window...the area that gets some weather?  Can they be places where your dishes are, is that safe?  Thank you.

    Asked by: Hidlins
    There are 6 baits in each box. We recommend using these wherever you are seeing ant activity. It will draw the colony to the baits and will then eliminate them. Complete control may take up to two weeks depending on the size of the colony.

    Can you reuse the traps? I put one out and within hours is was full of ants. A day later they were all gone and the trap is still half full. Can I reuse it in a different location? There is one dead ant still in there.

    Asked by: Robb
    If the ants are no longer visiting the area, but ants are still located in other areas of the home, the trap can be moved to those other locations.

    I had a problem with ants about 3 years ago and bought a 6 pack of Terro liquid ant baits. I had to use 4 traps but it worked well. Now I have ants again. Is the 2 baits that I have left over still good?

    Asked by: JessieIA
    The active ingredient in this product is borax, which does not diminish over time. If the product is still in liquid form, it can still be used to attract sweet eating ants. Generally if the product is over two years old, we recommend obtaining fresh baits.

    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


    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.
