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 RateOld T300 scissor-cut Terro bait trap worked great - new tear-off does NOT WORK
I have used Terro T300 bait traps and they were by FAR better than any competitor that I had tried. Recently I ordered 9 boxes of 6 traps each and tried 1/2 a box next to the old previous design (the cut-off w/scissors version). The old version worked great - a "ton" of ants went in. The new version got 1 or 2 ants only if that after many days. I returned all of the unopened boxes and am not hugely disappointed and wondering how to proceed. You have ruined a previously EXCELLENT product and delivery system. Without an EFFECTIVE delivery system, your great product is rendered useless. Please return to a workable solution -- the old style worked great.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDo not purchase
I bought these because we had many ants coming into our house by our window. I read some reviews and they seemed like they worked but they did not for me. I followed the directions and nothing if anything it created a spot for the ants to hang out. Haven't seen one dead one and it's been 4 days... Do not waste your money.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! While it may seem like the baits are not effective because you see more ants around the stations, this is actually an indication that the baits are working. 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. While this is happening, the bait is slowly killing them, but not before they can spread it to the rest of the colony. It can take up to two weeks to eliminate an entire colony of ants, depending on its size. For more information, give us a call at 800-800-1819 x 458. We're happy to help!
Review Rate48 hours to excellent results
I used Wilson AntOut for 6 weeks and continued to have ant problems. I went back to the store and found this product. Within 48 hours I didn't have a single ant. 6 weeks with a product I though was the best and no results, 2 days with this product - Terro will always be my go to know!
Review RateIt Works!
I cannot say enough about these ant bait traps! They just work like a charm! Wherever we have seen ants in our rental, we have put down one or two of the traps. As Terro has said, you will see a lot of ants at first going in and out of the traps to take the bait back to the colony where it will eventually be killed off. I had to get over that hurdle of seeing so many all at once (my creep and "ick" factor was off the charts! "bugs in my clean house!!!!") but I was patient and a day or two later, NO ants are seen now in my bathroom, my kitchen, and especially this one area near a window in the bedroom. Now that those ants are GONE we can seal up the gap in the window frame where they were coming in. I just can't thank TERRO enough for making such a GREAT product that really does work!!! I will be a returning customer for these every year!!! Bless you!
Review RateGreat liquid ant bait for carpenter ants
We were invaded by carpenter ants about a week ago and thanks to Terro and their liquid ant baits they are now just about all gone. The only issue that we had is that the liquid spills out easily and is very sticky and hard to clean up.
Review RateNew design terrible. Bait spills out.
The old traps were great. Easy to use and the ants loved them. The new ones are not "easy to open" as indicated and the holes are up in the air. The ants crawl all over my counter but they don't go into the trap. Plus I have had several traps where the liquid runs out on the counter. I have no idea how this can happen as the traps are sitting there undisturbed, some for days, and then you look and there's a puddle of the liquid bait that somehow has spilled out of the trap.Response From Terro®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorking better than other types I tried
I tried this ant bait out after trying to use a different one without any results. So far working good the ants cleaned out 3 of the bait stations in less than a day. Two days later just a few left in that area. Now working on different ant colony, I set out a bait for this one few hours ago their tearing it up. Hope performs as well on this colony of ants.
Review RateGreat product, very effective.
Great product, very effective. I have been wiping out ant colonies left and right. So much better.

This is an excellent product, had ants in my kitchen early spring. I put one of these on my counter in the back corner where I seen the ants. Within a 24 hour period I did not see anymore ants. It's been a week now and no return. I highly recommend this and it's now my favorite.
