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’tf. 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 RateOpening the baits is NOT FRUSTRATION free, but all frustration
Since Amazon had a BAN on any reviews for this product, I'm putting my review here. And writing Amazon. I use Amazon reviews to buy and to help others. Bad Amazon. The delivery system is NOT frustration free. The box gives instructions to break off the bait tab...and both my husband and I found this nigh on impossible. Often even with having the trap vertical (as described by Terro), the goop inside oozed out. Needs a better delivery system.Response From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
The plastic tab should just snap right off to make opening the product as simple as possible. We apologize this was not your experience and appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback! The information has been shared with our Product Managers.

Review RateGreat product!
Every spring we get them pesty little critters. This year was by far the worst ever! We have a split level house and they found there way into our upstairs bathroom. We only usually get them in the kitchen on the main floor. This year they decided to not only go into the bathroom but the living room and kitchen! I went into panic mode! Tried the ALl NATURAL methods first since we have pets. That worked temporarily for a day. Came across these gel baits from Terro. Placed them under our home in the crawl space, also under the fridge and stove. Haven’t seen not 1 ant in over a week! THANK GOD!! This stuff works amazing! Highly recommend!!
Review RateGreat Stuff
This ant bait works great. in about a week, the ants were gone. I would recommend this product to anyone who has problems with household ants.
Review Ratesaved my relationship
A couple of years ago, I had a small brown ant problem I mentioned to a coworker. The next day the coworker brought me 3 Terro ant traps and I put one in my kitchen sink. Each day the number of ants I was seeing in my kitchen drastically decreased and I haven't seen the small brown ants since. Fast forward several years and I'm in my yard when I hear my girlfriends blood curdling scream from the third floor bathroom. I run upstairs to find the third floor bathroom covered in black carpenter ants. I remembered that I still had some of those traps from years earlier and promised my panicked girlfriend that it would work in a day or two. Fortunately Terro traps didn't make me a look stupid and by the 3rd day there was no sign of carpenter ants. Thank you

These eork in Florida. What more can I say?
Review RateThe products works
This is one of the best products I have ever bought. We had ants everywhere. And in 7 days they were gone. We place syrup around in different places and crumbs to draw them out . Nothing no ants. Thank you very much Joanne Hall.
Review RateReally good product. Does all it says it does!
Have been using the ant baits for several years now. They work extremely well. The key being finding where the ants come inside and placing baits close to entry point to keep them from roaming as much. The very important thing is: Be Patient! About 1-2 days does it for me.
Review RateWorks fast!
I put one trap in my small bathroom and checked back 4 hours later and it was almost full! There were ants swarming all around it so I put a second one down, I’m hoping it keeps up with my ant problem, but so far I’m happy with the results (and grossed out that there were really that many ants in the first place)
Review RateAnts not interested.
This product does not work for small pavement ants that have infested my home. They have no interest in these bait stations at all. So know your ants. I could have saved $ had I known pavement ants are not sweet.Response From Terro®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateFinally, a Product That Actually Works!
In the past I have tried so many products to get rid of the black ants that seem to appear right when the spring/warm weather hits where I live. Nothing had worked until I saw the Terro traps and figured why not give them a try? They worked like magic! I would find the dead/dying ants had not gotten far from the traps and little by little, they just disappeared altogether! I highly recommend these traps if you are bothered by ants, whether the small brown ones or the larger black ones. Great product!
