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.

Review Ratethe new design is horrible
As a re-seller of this product and we use these stations in our pest control business, the new design is horrible. The ants just don't visit them like they used too. The new design is easier to tip creating a big mess! Hopefully you will go back to the old design and soon.Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateBring back the old style
New design is not so good. Ants need a tiny ladder to get in. I am reusing the old style trap and just pouring in the fresh bait.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback, and have shared your comments with our Product Managers. Ants should still be able to climb into the bait stations. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-844-837-7644 for assistance with our 30-day guarantee and 1-year replacement policy.
Review RateNew design doesn't work!
I've had two of the redesigned Terro bait stations placed in areas with visible ant activity, but they are just not climbing into the bait stations. I was even concerned I had it upside down, so one got flipped over this morning with no effect. The stations are also really hard to check inside of to see if there are even one or two ants inside without spilling the liquid. Not ONE ant has crawled into either station. The old bait stations were WONDERFUL and I was a walking advertisement for this brand. I'm so disappointed and hope I can find a source that still sells the old design for a while. PLEASE go back to the old design!Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback! Ants are able to climb into these stations, so they may simpley not be interested in sweet-based foods at this time. If this occurrs, one of our contact-killing products may be needed. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-844-837-7644 for assistance, we're happy to help!
Review Rategreat product
I found ants on my counter and put this down. I had ants on my counter for 3 days and then none. they were gone. the best product ever !!!!
Review RateAnts love this bait!
Placed on trap down at 7PM the ants ignored the sweetened condensed milk they were eating and concentrated on the Terro trap bait! Literally dozens were in and out of the trap in a frenzy to gobble it all up. So much so that we put down a second trap later that night. Trap one was completely drained when I checked in the morning and trap two was half gone with two or so ants returning to it. They love this bait, they are larger ants and still got in and out with the bait back to colony. Very pleased!
Review RateChange isn't always good
I hope Terro reads these and goes back to the original design..... or a better re-design. I 100% agree with the others regarding the new "snap-off" liquid container design. It doesn't snap off and Ants won't go to the effort of climbing up to the opening. This IS a great product that becomes worthless with the new opening design. The answer that "ants are great climbers" is ridiculous, as is the "feel free to return it for your money back". How about work on a better solution. Every thing will follow the law of least resistance..... I can climb a tree just fine but if I can walk another 20 ft for a steak & a beer sitting on a table I'll forget about the steak and beer that may may be 20 ft up the tree. I know this product works and have been using it for several years so I pour a little out of the opening to get them started. Sometimes it works and sometime they just consume the part I have poured out and leave the rest.... kind of silly when the whole purpose of having a container is to keep the mess CONTAINED. Get a cup of coffee and sharpen your pencils folks cuz this wasn't a good change.Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWould not have it any other way.........TERRO rules
I have used Terro baits for 3 years...…. NO ANTS... prevents them from getting INTO the walls of my house where, you can spray all you want, but they will just find another access once in the walls. Prevention is better than the cure...…. As far as the ants not "finding" the baits, when you place them, spread a little "bait scent" liquid around container...… works well for me. Decorative brick over bait allows ants in but keeps kids and pets out.
Review RateGood product
Good product. works well.
Review RateNew design has me baffled
I always loved Terro traps but the new design doesn’t work well at all. This is because the ants can’t hike themselves up into the tiny hole since it is not flush with the ground. The old design with the ramp was SO much more effective! With this new design, most ants just walk by the trap and never go in because the hole is too high for them to reach. Also, some ants who made it into the trap drowned in the liquid and therefore never brought the poison back to the nest. Moreover, the liquid just seems to pour out/leak after awhile. Finally, the tab is advertised as a snap off but it is impossible for me to snap it off — I end up cutting it off which leaves the hole jagged. PLEASE bring back the old design!
