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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ProduIct I bought these traps online via another vendor, and within 18 hours, all ant activity has ceased. We watched as the ants were immediately drawn to the traps, then took the bait to their nest. We were even able to find the entry point of where the ants were coming from (around our kitchen window frame. I highly recommend this product, and will be ordering more to have on standby!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great !! We started seeing ants show up in the kitchen a couple of months ago and couldn't figure out where they were coming from. Bought some ant traps and sprayed often, even tried some home remedies. They kept coming. I was at work a few days ago when our pest control guy came in to do some routine spraying. He recommended this product so I picked some up. Put a few traps out in the kitchen, replacing the previous traps which were empty and not effective. The next morning I had dozens of dead ants in the Terro traps. And within two days, I saw only a couple of strays still wandering around. For the price, this is probably the best weapon for ants in your house.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! This is the only act product I buy. It works excellent! It even kills carpenter ants. Initially you will see more ants than you've seen before which is a good thing because there are more ants bringing the bait food back to the colony. It works rather quickly as well. I keep them in places that aren't accessible to pets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only solution to ants in your house. This is not just a solution to ants in your house. It is THE solution. Don't waste money on an exterminator. Follow the directions and you won't have an ant problem in a few days. I had tried everything else. This works. Get a couple boxes so you have enough but for my 1,800-sq. foot house, 4 bait is enough. Don't squish all the ants you see. Let them live so they can carry the bait back to the nest. Keep some extra Terro on hand so if some ants from another colony come to your house, you'll be ready.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still Tired os Doing a Hat Dance to Stomp on Ants! I bought a 4 pack last week and placed the plastic receptacles on my main floor. Two of them got bumped and made a huge mess. There is a storm coming and that is a time when ant activity may worsen.... and it did. I am going back to purchase a different brand.

    How do we clean up spilled trap bait from hardwood floor?

    Asked by: jdbro
    Any liquid that has spilled can be wiped up with soapy water. If the bait has dried or hardened, we suggest covering it with a warm damp cloth for 15-20 minutes. This will allow the bait to soften enough to be wiped up.

    I have an ant problem and nothing I have tried has worked. I have to be careful because I have 2 dogs. Is this safe to use when you have pets?

    Asked by: MareMare611
    People are often surprised to learn that Borax, the active ingredient found in TERRO® liquid ant bait, 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, but ants are another story. When ants consume the Borax bait, it interferes with their digestive system and gradually kills them. This slow kill allows time for the worker ants to consume the bait and head back to the nest to share with the rest of the colony. But, as with any pesticide, it's important to read the included instructions for information on how to best store and apply the product around children and pets.

    How long, once I set out the traps, does it take to attract the ants and then to see them fully eliminated?

    Asked by: cdragon

    I opened a new package and 2 baits have clear liquid in them and 4 baits have golden color liquid. Are these still good?

    Ants

    There are more than 10,000 known species of ants living throughout the world. Like other insects, they have six legs; each with three joints. Ants have large heads with compound eyes, elbowed antennae and powerful jaws. Ants are social insects that live in structured nest communities throughout the world. The species of ant determines whether they live underground, in mounds built at ground level, in wood structures or in plants or trees.

    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.
