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 allow worker ants to consume the product and survive long enough to carry the liquid back to the nest and deliver a dose to the rest of the colony. Complete control may take up to two weeks.

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 ‘pheromone trail’ 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. Baiting enables you 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. Be sure to place the bait stations where pets or children cannot gain access to them.


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. Depending on the size of the infestation, complete control may take up to two weeks.

Messy By balice

I found the baits messy. You cut them open and the fluid gets all over, also when you pick them up to dispose of them. I had more luck with the Terro fluid bait on its own. I may try the bait outside, as people seem to have had good luck with that.

great product! By Dawn

Normally by this time of year we're scrambling to find something to work on the ants that seem to be coming in from everywhere but we put these out in all the areas we normally have them and it's been fantastic so far!

Best Choice By TC
Don't waste your time with any other baits but these. I use them at the first sign of ants in the Spring. I use them around the outside of the house. I follow up with another set a few weeks later. This has eliminated very bad infestations to nothing.

The colony just won't die! By Sonia_g86

Placed it in several areas. 100s feasted for a day. A small amount thereafter. For 2 weeks we saw dead ants everywhere. I'd vacuum and more dead ants. Great! There were still some ants alive though and not interested in the bait. Today I saw a cluster of them in front of one of the one of openings that they are coming from. They were not interested in the bait. They are tiny black ants. Is this a new colony or are they now no longer interested in this bait period?

Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Sonia,

We apologize for this experience and are happy to provide additional assistance.

Because there was a sharp decrease in the number of ants, it does sound like this is a new colony that you are now seeing.  While most household ants will be attracted to this sweet bait, there are some that are searching for protein instead.  In these cases, we recommend a contact killer such as our <a href="http://www.terro.com/terro-ant-killer-spray">TERRO® Ant Killer Spray</a>.

Our consumer Relations Team is happy to provide further help.  Please feel free to contact us at 800-800-1819 x 458.

seems to work fine! By Whitmer

So far seems to be working fine, but I see a lot of dead ants inside of the product. I seem to have ghost ants in my house and they are all over my bedroom. Since the bait product was put on my dresser, I see almost none, and its only been a day! still, it worries me, because the ghost ants seem to like hiding inside the product rather than going back to the nest, but it may just be because they are trying to hide from me, and go back to the nest when they sense no other activity.

Get ready for more ants than you thought were there By Mike

Excellent - do be ready for more ants than you thought were around. I have cats in the house - so I slid the trap into a box from a sleeve of golf balls - perfect fit. I cut a little hole in the bottom of the face to let those little buggers in. After a couple of days they slowed down to a couple a day - and then nothing. I did find a pile of dead ants in the garage (adjacent wall to where I was seeing them come in) after about a week - all dead... Also - I cleaned the trap out after a couple of days to get the dead ants out - then more came for a day before disappearing completely.

They always work for us By Mark52

We started using these a few years ago and have always had excellent results. We generally use them outside, but have also used them in the kitchen. They do attract the ants (they work), but we've found that in the kitchen it keeps them from wandering all over. They pick up the bait and head back to the nest!

Concerned By Johncap

Not sure after four days. As warned, initially there was a swarm of ants. Then almost nothing for a day. Now, the last few days they've infested out master bathroom. My concern is they don't seem to be coming, consuming and going back. They seem dazed and confused and running all over the bathroom. Last year I gave up on another bait product and called an exterminator to the tune of $350. Was hoping to avoid that again.

Doesn't work for me By Ant hater

Found tiny brownish ants on counter tops and the kettle. Bought this 10 days ago and placed six stations on the ant trail. It attracted the ants for the first day and I can see some were feeding inside of the trap. There were a lot more ants as expected, so I was waiting patiently. Then I noticed that the ants don't go inside the traps any more. They were more attracted to the sink area and avoided the traps at all. It has been ten days and still more ants than the original situation. It seems that the ants at my home are more attracted to water than food. So not working for me so far.

Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

When placing these baits out, large quantities of ants will initially be drawn to the stations to gather the bait. The ants will return with it to the nest where they share it with other members of the colony, including the queen(s). Any ant that consumes the bait will die within 24-48 hours, however, it can take a few days or weeks to eliminate an entire colony, depending on its size.

The liquid bait acts as both a food and water source to ants. If the ants are no longer going to the bait, it may be that they are currently in a different phase of their life cycle or are searching for protein based foods. If the ants continue to ignore the bait, we recommend using a contact killer to help eliminate these insects.

Q&A
Q.Is this product safe for pets? Please let me know.
A.

This product should be kept out of reach of pets or children.

Q.I have used Terri ant traps in the past and they have worked perfectly. I purchased them this year and have had them out for two weeks now and not one any has gone in the traps. The ants are running around everywhere!!! Help!!
A.

This product only attracts sweet-eating ants. Some, such as carpenter ants, will not be lured by it, but we have other products that we could suggest. Please contact us at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 so that we may offer further assistance.

Q.Traps were out for about 10 days and ants are gone. But why is there sticky liquid on the floor near the trap?
A.

It may take up to two weeks for an entire colony to be exposed to the poison and eat it. A lone straggler or two may have trailed the liquid out from the bait station. If it is beginning to harden, it may be cleaned up by applying a towel with warm water, allowing it to soak until the liquid is soft enough to wipe up.
