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.

This 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 thousands 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.

    Amazon Review By Art I

    After noticing a few ants in the bedroom of my condo, I put a couple traps near the window bc it seemed that is where the ants were coming from. I did my research and knew what to expect so I was hopeful when I saw hundreds upon hundreds of ants swarm to these traps. After 2 days I saw the number of ants decrease significantly with many of the ants dead inside the trap. In another day or so there was no longer a trail of ants, just 1-2 every now and then....I was very excited thinking my problem would be solved! I read on the Terro website to leave the bait traps out for 3-4 days after the ants are gone in order to make sure that the entire colony is killed off. Today was supposed to be the 4th day, I was going to remove the trap, caulk up the window, and leave Terro a 5-star review. However, when I woke up this morning I noticed a new trail of ants swarm to the traps. Now it isn't as big as the original trail but still a healthy stream of ants. Now I am not sure whether these ants are just remainders from the original colony or whether the baits attracted a new colony and I will have to go through this process all over again. I am feeling extremely discouraged. Wondering if all the positive reviews that people left here were premature...Will update in a few days.

    Works very fast. The ants went for the packet as soon as I placed it near them.

    Q&A
    Q.Is Terro liquid and prefilled safe for ferrets? What would happen if ferrets would eat some of the ant product?
    A. We recommend storing and placing the liquid bait stations in areas that cannot be accessed by any pets. Our active ingredient, Borax, is a natural mineral found in many common household products such as hand soaps and toothpastes. Borax has a low toxicity for people and animals. In the event that your pet does come in contact with the liquid bait, your best course of action is to contact your vet and refer to the MSDS information provided on our website for each product.
    Q.Will the liquid ant bait kill carpenter ants?
    A. 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.
    Q.How long does it take to eliminate an ant colony with TERRO® liquid ant bait?
    A. 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.

    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.
