Ants can be a problem anywhere – in the home, at work and everywhere in between. To kill common household ants, place TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits in areas where they attract foraging ants that take the bait back to the nest. As the bait circulates through the colony, it kills the ants you see and the ones you don’t. The new and improved snap-off tab makes the stations easy to use. Plus, the closed bait stations prevent the bait from drying out to provide the ants with a continuous supply of liquid, day and night. Note: complete control may take up to two weeks.How Liquid Ant Bait Works Since this is a bait, initially you will see more ants – but don’t worry, this is a good thing. Why? As ants forage for food, they are easily attracted to the sweet, sugary liquid inside the bait stations. After finding the bait, worker ants consume it and leave behind a pheromone trail leading back to the colony. This trail lets other worker ants know where the newly discovered food supply is. This is why you will see more ants in the beginning.
Meanwhile, the active ingredient, Borax, is slowly interfering with the ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing it, but leaving enough time for the ant to go back and share the dose with the rest of the colony. This slow kill is necessary so that foraging ants can make several trips to the bait. The communal nature of an ant colony allows the bait to be spread to hundreds, if not thousands, of individual ants.Where to Place Ant Baits
Place TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits near trails and other locations where ants are numerous. It’s also a good idea to place bait stations anywhere ants may try to enter your home. The compact size of the bait stations makes them perfect for placement along baseboards, in corners, on counters, under and behind appliances, and on windowsills. The more bait placements, the better!Easy-Open Tab Each TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait station is sealed so the bait stays fresh until you’re ready to use them. To open the bait, hold the station vertically and twist the new and improved tab. This opens up the station and allows ants to access the bait. Place the entire station on a flat surface, keeping the ant bait inside the station.
Note: Some earlier versions of TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait required it to be opened by scissors. The new snap-off tab eliminates this method of opening, but some earlier versions may still be sold while supplies last.How to Use Liquid Ant Baits
TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits are very easy to use. Before placing the bait stations, be sure to remove other sources of food, such as crumbs, sugar and grease spots to prevent attracting ants elsewhere. Do not place bait where you’ve already sprayed insecticides, as the pests may avoid the bait stations.

Review RateIt takes awhile for ants to find
It took a few weeks for the ants to find the bait, but, when they did, the bait station was packed! I was able to watch where they were coming and going from. Eat up, ants! I hope I stop seeing them soon.
Review RateAm I dreaming??
Found this by accident@ Walmart. OMG!!! Your 5 star will be given if this product continues what it's done in less than 24 hours. Not sure if I am dealing with fire ants or crazy ants, but they are no longer going round and round my foundation. They are not coming in, but still. But only a few stragglers this morning. So out near the curb to Des with the rest. Fingers crossed, but I'm ecstatic already!!!
Review RateWorks like a charm
Fantastic product. Someone at the store told me this is the product to use, much better than anything else - and they were right. I now don't use anything else when the ants come scouting. I don't find the new design to be a problem, the ants climb anywhere and everywhere and the scent must be so strong that they find the bait, no problem. They told the whole colony about it, it seems. I also find the new design to be far less messy than the old one. All in all a great product that you can trust.
Review RateNew design just flat out does not work
This new design is terrible!!! The opening does not reach the floor, which means ants can’t get inside, thus negating the entire trap! I had to make a ramp out of the box it came in just so the ants could get into the trap! I should not have to MacGyver an ant trap that I bought at the store just to make it work like it’s supposed to. The bait traps do work great - when they’re accessible to the ants! Bring back the original design with the ramp - this one is a complete fail!!!Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDesign is horrible
I just sent an email about this also. The product design is awful. I LOVED your product when you had to cut the end off. I have scissor I only used for this product. Even the inside of the box they came in has liquid that must of come out of the baits and the box was not smashed or tampered with. The whole trap seems so much messier. PLEASE would you back to your previous design as the liquid is a true winner!!Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateThe new design doesn't work! I did try out.
The new design doesn't work! I did try out. The ants ignore the trap because the gap is between the mouth and floor. Sometime ants are smart and keep to focus on the trail. The old design is much better because the ants are unable to avoid the mouth. I have to use the scissor to trim the mouth to make it touch the floor. Anyway i am looking the old design. Do you know any store (homedepot or Amazon still sell the baits with old design? The old design is too good. Don't re-design. Please change back to the old design Thank you.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! Your comments have been shared with our Product Managers. Ants will still be able to access the bait inside. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 800-800-1819 x 458 with any questions or for additional assistance.
Review RateEffective at attracting ants- almost too good!
Didn’t have time to find out about the effectiveness of killing the colony because the entire colony showed up to my kitchen! I have 2 pet cats that are too curious to leave the bait alone on the floor so I put the bait on the counter (away from where I prepare food) last night. 24 hours later and I found a swarm of probably 100 ants. Gross! I’m glad to know it was successful in attracting them but I had to spend an hour cleaning up dead ants from all over my kitchen. I had to spray a contact killer because I just couldn’t let them crawl all over my kitchen. I left a bait outside the door hoping that they still take the goods. Here’s hoping it’s successful and I don’t see another one of those buggers
Review RateAwesome Ant Traps/Bait
Set the traps out yesterday at 3pm. I took a little liquid out from the traps with a toothpick and set along the ant trail in 4 different places in my kitchen and bathrooms. This morning I think I saw 1 ant. I set out six ant traps. I am canceling the exterminator I have scheduled for tomorrow. Thank you.
Review RateThe New Design Is Stunningly Defective
I agree with the people who can't believe that Terro didn't stop to think about the issue of ants not being tall enough to jump up into the trap. There is now a sizable gap between mouth of trap and floor. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? I'm not shouting, I'm just genuinely baffled. And surprised, since the traps otherwise seem like well-designed products.Response From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback. While the design of the trap has changed, the ants will still be able to enter the trap and access the bait. We recommend placing the bait stations as close to the ant trails as possible.
