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.

Most Recent Customer Reviews
Review RateTasty bait, apparently
We use these in both commericlal and residential properties and they work as well as the ones we were getting from the exterminator, but a lot less expensive. The ants love them
Review RateStill works not as good tho as it used to be
Would have been 5 star but since the package has been redesigned it's harder for the ants to find the bait. Even if they are excellent climbers. They run right under the bait. The ramp of the bait doesnt touch the ground anymore for them to enter into. Terro please go back to the original design. Your customers would appreciate it if you did.
Review RateThey took away the ramp now ants can’t get in
Terro has made a huge error with this design change. The basic recipe hasn’t changed boric acid in a sweet liquid. But now the new design removes the ramp and one must employ creative cutting and twists of the plastic to allow the ants access to the insecticide..Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Ants are excellent climbers, and can still access the bait inside the new design of these bait stations. If ants are not entering the bait stations, they're likely not currently interested in sweets and an alternate product may be needed. Please feel free to contact us directly at 844-837-7644 for assistance, we're happy to help!
Review RateDon't like new snap off opening tab
I also am not thrilled with the new snap off design. I cannot snap it off and am not sure I am cutting it correctly. I am finding it not as effective as the previous packages.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback! As long as the bait station has been opened enough for ants to access the bait, it will attract sweet-eating ants. If your ants are not heading for open bait stations, they may be interested in other types of food and an alternate control method such as a contact killing spray may be needed. For more assistance, please contact us directly at 844-837-7644, we're happy to help!
Review RateBait good/design bad.
Ants are coming to the bait, but the design is less than great. Advertised that the tab will snap off...nope. Entrance isn't structured in a way to give the ants easy access. I watched them for an hour...design should be improved. The ant bait does attract them, no doubt, but again, the design isn't right.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thanks for your feedback! Ants are excellent climbers and are still able to access the bait in the new stations. As long as they are interested in sweet based foods, they'll continue to eat the bait. For more information, please contact us directly at 844-837-7644.
Review RateBesides the packaging change was there a product reformulation?
I too find that the newly designed product isn't working at all when the previous version worked great! Besides the packaging change, was there a change made to the product formulation??? I prefer not to use a contact killer because of the pets. What else do you suggest that may be pet friendly? Thank you!Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this recent experience with our newly redesigned bait stations. The only changes that were made were with the packaging itself. The formula of our tried and true liquid ant bait have not changed in well over 20 years! We do offer our liquid bait in other bait stations or in small bottles that drops can be placed on cards. Please feel free to reach out to us at 1-844-837-7644 with any additional questions.
Review RateBest ever
The new design is just fine. We have used both with great success. A few minutes after opening it we had SO many ants
Review RateFine businessSure does attracts ants by the hundreds. I used a flat toothpick for a bridge or ramp for the ants to get into the trap. Give it a try.
Review Rateterrible design
There is no way to break off the so called end for use. I had to cut with the scissors and then it exploded and went every where in the kitchen. It took about an hour for clean up. This is not a convenient product. It use to have a place to cut the end off and then the ants could enter easily. This new opening is an engineers nightmare! Will not purchase againResponse From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDESIGN FAIL!!
If there were "0" stars this "new and improved" product would deserve it. The opening of the new 'snap open' container is too high off of the surface for ants to enter!! The "top" of the container IS level with the surface it sits on, but of course the liquid would leak out. DID YOU TEST THIS THING on small red ants? Apparently not. I'm obviously not the only customer who recognizes this problem. GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL DESIGN.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi there! We are sorry to hear that the ants in your home are not eating the bait! We assure you, ants are great climbers and will be able to find and access the bait through the opening, even though it is not touching the ground. If ants are avoiding TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait, it’s possible they’re just not into sweets for one reason or another (weird, but possible!). When baiting is not the answer, try a contact killing spray or an outdoor treatment like TERRO® Ant Killer Plus. In any case, we are happy to pass along your suggestion of bring back the old design to our Product Managers. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know what you'd like to see from us in the future!
