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 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye Sugar Ants! We live in the country, and the sugar ants invade every fall, looking for food to store for the winter. Thanks to you, Terro, your unobtrusive "houses" took care of the problem all over our house in about three days. We are grateful!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from IT DOES NOT KILL SMALL BLACK ANTS! IT DOES NOT WORK! I bought this wonderful product. The for ants so "irresistible" liquid got the ants into the little container, they feasted on it and crawled out. None of them was killed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective! I bought a six pack of these yesterday at Wal-Mart for $5.88. I have been using Raid ant traps for a couple of weeks, but they never worked! The ants always went past those. And they were more expensive! I put these out and within 15 minutes I had ants swarming it!! I like that you can see through the container that it's working. Today, there are barely any ants on my counter... only after a day!! The only small downside is that they do leave a bit of the liquid underneath it, but that can easily be cleaned. If you're really worried, stand them upright before you cut it for like thirty minutes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liq ant baits This product works great. I bought a dozen indoor baits, and half dozen outside ones, and thought I have to put all of them out at once. In reality, three would have been plenty inside, as if you just put them on the main crawling paths, they will come to you. After 4 or 5 days they are all gone. Thanks .

    My assigned parking spot is right under a huge tree that is infested with ants. Now they have taken over my car. Will the liquid ant bait work in my car?

    Asked by: sno35white
    Yes, this can be used in the car to control sweet eating ants. It should be removed when driving so the liquid does not spill.

    Will this bait kill Pharaoh Ants ?

    Asked by: Jeya
    This has not been tested on pharaoh ants. We would recommend a contact killer such as a spray or dust for the best method of control.

    I used the bait stations and the ants came as promised. The activity near the bait stations had decreased significantly.  Now I seem to see ants (stray) in wide area of the home for about 2 weeks now. Is this normal? What should I do now?

    Asked by: espy
    If ants are in other areas of the home they could be from another colony in search of food or water. The bait stations can be placed in the areas where the ants are seen or a contact killer such as a spray can be used.

    A swarm of ants came in about 2 straight days and finally the number has died down to a few. I left the bait out trying to kill the rest bit of them. One day later, I saw a NEW swarm of ants were marching in. Is this likely a new colony of ants found the 

    Asked by: R_0117
    It does sound as if a new colony of ants has found the bait. Once activity has decreased the bait should be removed.

    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.

    All About


    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


    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.
