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 RateGreat product works fast
I had little black ants around the bottom of my dish washer and some on countertop I put three terro traps around bottom of dishwasher n one on countertop Within a couple hours they were around the traps by the next day i haven't seen one any this stuff works great.
Review RateGreat product sucky packaging
I still love your product. It works great. However the new packaging seems inferior to the old way. The twist top is aggravating. It does not twist off well. I think I will start cutting it off instead. Love your product and will give you 5 STARS when you change your packaging to something easier to use.
Review RateWhat's Happened to TERRO?!??
WHAT'S HAPPENED? We live in Texas, and TERRO worked amazingly well on the inevitable single trails of ants that happen once or twice a year, both inside and outside of the house. However, since the package re-design, they march right by the traps. Was the formula altered as well? I had a box of the old design (cut along the red line), and put out both those as well as traps from a new box. Old design, the ants went crazy to get to YAY! The new design traps, nothing! I even poured some of the liquid onto flat pieces of cardboard, and couldn't get a taker. Help! :-(Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

The redesign is flawed !!! The snap off tab is not flush with the surface and the ants cannot access the opening due to opening being to high!! They all just go under it and ignore the trap... How your engineers missed that design flaw is baffling. Go back to the drawing board. There was no need to change a working design people !!!Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback. These comments have been shared with our Product Managers. Ants are still able to access the bait, and the formulae has not changed. Sweet-eating ants will still be attracted, and will still take the bait back to the colony, resulting in its elminiation.

Review RateThe new design is TERRIBLE!!
The new design is flawed! I have been using Terro ant baits for years without issue. The new design creates a gap between the bait trap and the floor which inhibits the ants from getting to the bait. For years this product has worked wonderfully, until this new design. Now they don’t work at all. I set the traps out and not even close to the same results. BRING BACK THE OLD DESIGN IM BEGGING YOU!!!Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback and the time taken to provide it. These comments have been shared with our Product Managers. Ants are still able to access the bait by climbing into that station. The liquid bait formulae has not changed. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 with any questions.
Review RateThe composition only contains 4% borax, what is the other 96%?

Review RateIf it ain't broke, don't fix it
Glad I'm not the only one who hates the redesign. Not only is it very difficult to twist the top off, when you set it down, the opening is suspended in the air. I bent the bottom edge to touch the floor, but it just wasn't as effective as it was in the past.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback! Your comments have been shared with our Product Managers. Ants are still able to access the bait inside the stations, and the liquid bait is the same. It will still attract sweet-eating ants.

Review RateGreat product
These things work great! First night I left them out on the kitchen counter and by early morning they were having a fiesta. A day later the war is just about over. 5 Stars
Review RateHuge problem Solved!
Terro Ant baits have changed my life! The dear little buggers invaded my home with a vengeance this year due to the unusual weather. Armies of ants have paraded in columns an inch wide across my floors, having never done that before. Since placing your bait stations as recommended they've all but disappeared. I thank my daughter for telling me about your product. A huge problem solved! I now have a good supply on hand ...ready for the next invasion.
I've got pictures of these traps after 1 month then got rid of them and bought another 4 pack because I wanted to give it another try. Nope I had ants for 3 months. Then I did the Borax method. Gone in 3 days!.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
