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 kill the worker ant in two to three days, giving the foraging ants enough time to share the bait with the rest of the unsuspecting colony.

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 ‘trail pheromone’ 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. This is the only way 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.


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. In a day or two, your ant problem will be a dim memory.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Misery solver! I had been having trouble with those pesky tiny sweet ants. They were appearing everywhere throughout the house - even on the kitchen table! I researched all of the possible ant relief on the PC and Terro had the best reviews. So I ordered Terro's liquid ant baits in the hope it would solve the problem. When they arrived I placed the bait packs around the house. I then later saw the ants leaving a trail from several of the baits after eating the liquid. The following day I checked and could not find any ants coming or going from the baits. As a matter of fact, I could not find any signs of the ants anywhere!! It is now a pleasure to sit down and eat, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective I bought the product on advice from a neighbor that also was being infested with these tiny (faro/pharaoh?) ants. Previously, I had been treating with sprays, which did not last very long. Several weeks after treatment, there has not been any recurrence of ants in the treated ares.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ants seem to be gone! I bought the Liquid Ant Baits two pack a couple of weeks ago. I had tried something I bought in the grocery store, but after a couple of weeks, it wasn't working. Eight days after I tried the Liquid Ant Baits, every ant appears to be gone. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm! Ant problem began in spring time. Before i knew it they were everywhere on the main floor and upstairs, crawling on us as we sat on our couch or slept! Put 4 of these traps in there paths but out of sight and access from the dog and also some of the outdoor steak traps too. Within days they dissapeared. Found thousands of them dead in the basement, where i had never seen any prior, all down the unfinished side basement wall soon after. Amazing how many there were! My theory is they all migrated down there in search of cool temps and water because the poison was dehydrating them. They're all dead now and no more pestering from them.

    Q&A

    what is the shelf life of the traps unopened    and once open   how long do they last??

    Asked by: mike
    The liquid ant bait does not have an expiration date, as the effectiveness of the active ingredient does not diminish over time. You may notice the liquid changing color to yellow or brown, or the liquid thickening a bit. As long as the bait remains in a liquid state and is easy to pour, it will still work to attract ants. However, we recommend using fresh bait if you've had the same liquid bait for more than two years. Once the bait stations have been opened, we recommend replacing the stations every three months, or when the ants have consumed all of the bait.

    I set baits 5 days ago. Initially we saw swarms of carpenter ants drinking the bait and head back to the colony. Activity dwindled 2 days after setting the baits, now activity is picking up in other areas. No other food sources are available to them. WTD?

    Asked by: Daniel
    This product has not been tested on carpenter ants. To best control this type of ant we would recommend a contact killer such as a dust or a spray.

    Will this bait kill fire ants found in the southern US?

    Asked by: Anon
    TERRO® Ant Killer Bait will kill the fire ants that consume it, but because of their distinctive behavior patterns, it will not eliminate the entire colony. If you do have fire ants, their mounds need to be treated individually and aggressively. For fire ants we suggest using TERRO® Ant Dust on the individual mounds. http://www.terro.com/terro-ant-dust

    Will this kill carpenter ants?

    Asked by: Blemay
    Our 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.

    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.
