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 RateLiquid Ant Traps
I am writing to say how pleased I was with your product. My kitchen has been plagued by an ant infestation for the past few weeks and we had zero success ridding ourselves of these pests. I have always used Raid Ant Baits in the past and tried them again. If anything the problem, got worse. A co-worker suggested your product so I purchased a 6-pack at Lowes and in one day the ants have pretty much been eradicated. I am not sure if I ever been more satisfied or pleased with a product as much as yours.
Review RateLove TERRO
I love TERRO liquid ant bait. Ants started coming into my kitchen again today and I got out my TERRO liquid. A few drops on pieces of cardboard and within a couple of hours the cardboard was covered with ants. All of them taking it back to their nest. Thank you TERRO for such a great product!
Review RateThe new break off tops are AWFUL!
The new packaging is just TERRIBLE. First of all is it a twist off tab? It does not say if you twist it, bend it, snap it, NOTHING! And the photo kind of shows lifting one side of the tab up? Then if you can twist or bend or snap the top off the end is very compromised (squished, bent, sharp) and damaged. And the end is a good 1/2 inch off the surface, is that right? How do the ants get to it?Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this valuable feedback regarding this new design and the packaging. We apologize for this experience and have shared these concerns with our Product Manager for review.
Once the tab is snapped off, the ants will be able to climb up and into the container to gather the bait. Please feel free to contact us at 1-800-800-1819 ext. 458 with any questions.
Review RateBig Disappointment
Whenever I had an ant invasion I could depend upon TERRO LIQUID ANT BAITS to make them quickly disappeared. This time I am really disappointed, the baits do not deter them. Actually, they show no interest in visiting the baits. Why don't these baits work as well their predecessors?Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback, thank you for taking the time to provide it! Your comments have been shared with our Product Managers. If the ants are not interested in the bait, then they are not currently attracted to sweet-based foods. Our bait formulae has not changed. These bait stations are covered by our 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 for assistance.
Review RateI highly recommend this product...it works!
Of all the ant baits I've used over the decades, I've finally found one that actually works...and it works well. Ants are gone...this product has never disappointed. I highly recommend its use.
Review RateCrazy ants gone!
Just moved into my new home only to find it infested with Crazy ants in the kitchen. Tried spaying ant killer and it killed some visible ones the next day they were in my pantry had to throw food away. Tried other baits zero effect. But these Terro baits work. At first you see hundreds of tabts but over the next few days less and less. None this morning. So happy I found this product.
Review RateThis stuff works!!!
OMG - this stuff is the BOMB! I tried another brand as well as some DIY concoctions and nothing worked. The ants just crawled around whatever I put down. Then I opened the package and because the ant trail and nest were not in an area where I could put the container, I put a few drops on cardboard strips and put them in the path. The ants in 2 different parts of my kitchen immediately swarmed to the liquid and were having a feeding frenzy. We could be talking about 100 ants. I don't want to get to excited but that was last night and I haven't seen an ant all day!
Review RateBought the new design unaware it was not as effective
Just bought these because of the stellar reviews on amazon and this website, but was quickly disappointed when I found no ants going into the traps. No coming back and seeing the reviews I can see why. The new design is the problem. I’m hoping I can find the old design or find out this borax method I’ve been hearing about.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateCrazy ants anhilated!
The crazy ants were driving me out of my mind! Anything with sugar had to be kept in the fridge or they would get into it. Once I put the baits down they were gone in less than 24 hours! Thank you Terro!!!!!
Review RateThe Best!
