TERRO® Liquid Ant Killer

When you have a bug problem, you want to ensure your efforts are as simple and effective as possible. TERRO® Liquid Ant Killer uses borax to kill the ants you see, as well as the ants you don’t see. It works by allowing the forager ants to consume the product and survive long enough to carry the liquid back to the nest and deliver a dose to the rest of the colony. Complete control may take up to two weeks. For your convenience, the packaging conveniently comes apart to allow for easy placement.

Ant Killer
 
Eliminate Ants
How Does Liquid Ant Killer Work? Since this is a bait, initially you will see more ants – but don’t worry, this is a good thing. As ants forage for food, they are easily attracted to the sweet liquid. 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 each ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing them, but leaving enough time for the ants 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, allowing you to get rid of both the ants you see and the ants you don’t.

 

Where to Place Liquid Ant Killer

Place TERRO® Liquid Ant Killer near ant trails and other locations where they are numerous. Apply the baited cardboard tiles on the edges of sinks, tubs, windowsills, under food cabinets, along floors and baseboards and in corners. The more bait placements, the better! Be sure to leave the ant killer undisturbed while the ants are actively feeding on it.

Where to Place Bait
 
How to use
How to Use Liquid Ant Killer TERRO® Liquid Ant Killer is very easy to use. Before placing the ant killer, be sure to remove other sources of food, such as crumbs, sugar and grease spots to prevent attracting them elsewhere. Do not place where you’ve already sprayed insecticides, as the pests may avoid the ant killer.
  1. Tear the "PLACE TERRO® HERE" cardboard tiles from the packaging along the perforated lines. Then, apply drops of the liquid ant killer directly from the bottle onto the smooth side of the tile. you may also substitute with small pieces of paper, cardboard or foil.
  2. Place the ant killer tiles on a flat surface near signs of target pests. Place additional tiles anywhere they may enter your home. Heavily infested areas may require additional placements.
  3. Monitor placements regularly, but do not interfere with the pests or bait. Add more liquid if it goes dry or simply add more tiles to ensure there's always a fresh supply for the ants. Depending on the size of the ant invasion, complete control may take up to two weeks.

There is nothing more fun than watching ants die. By Mad Dog

I had these tiny little ants coming out of the walls in my bathroom. I put the liquid ant killer around and within a few days they were gone. It was like a sport... put out the liquid ant killer and watch the ants be attracted to it and then going off to die. There's nothing more exciting to me than poisoning ants. And great for the entire family. Turn off the television and have some good quality time with the wife and kids huddling around the liquid ant killer watching them eat their last meal. Invite your neighbors over. Have a few beers and watch the ants die. Great stuff, this product.

The best product for tiny black kitchen ants! By Louis

I had tiny black ants in my kitchen for the past 3 weeks. I placed 20 Raid Ant Baits on the counters and walls and in cabinets for the past 12 days and the ants would not get anywhere near them...... they would actually turn around and walk in the opposite direction ! I was ready to just give up, but decided to give Terro Liquid Ant Killer a try. ..... Within one hour there was a feeding frenzy on this bait.....i would surely recommend this Terro product for tiny black kitchen ants !

The only product that worked that was pet-safe By Autumn

We, for whatever reason, had a bad infestation of sugar ants in the house. Because we have indoor cats, my options were pretty limited on what I could use safely. I tried citrus-based stuff first, but they just kept coming back. Then I tried the sugar/water/borax solution. Ants still kept coming. After reading about Terro, I decided to give it a try. Within days of putting the bait out, all the ants were gone, and did not return. It's safe to say I'll be recommending this to all of my friends with indoor pets.

This product works as it said it would. By Lynn

It worked exactly the way the label said it would!! I think it was important that the directions be followed the way it was described on the box. At this point, about 5 days after beginning the process I have gone from having a house full of ants to NONE!

Q&A
Q.My dog ate one of the cardboard squares with two drops of bait. She seems fine but it’s only been an hour or so. Do I need to call the vet?
A.

The main ingredients in this product are sugar, water and borax. Since animals may react differently to the product, we recommend contacting a veterinarian for further assistance.

Q.This product works as promised! It's made my family very happy, we tried many products before this without success. How do you recommend I clean up dried drops that got onto my kitchen counter top from the cardboard. Thank you!
A.

We are glad to hear of your success! To clean the product, we recommend using warm water and dish detergent. Placing a warm, wet cloth on top of the dried liquid for approximately 20 minutes will soften the bait to make it easier to remove.

Q.Does this product have an effective life span? I believe my bait has darkened in color from last year to this.
A.

The main ingredients in this product are sugar, water and borax. Over time, the liquid may start to crystallize and become a different color. As long as it is in liquid form, it is still active. However, we recommend replacing the bait after two years to keep it fresh.

FAQs

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.

I just placed TERRO® Ant Killer in my kitchen and it’s attracting more ants, not killing them! What’s going on?

You have nothing to worry about! Initially, you will see more ants. As ant foragers look for food, they are attracted to the sweet liquid in the bait which they consume and carry back to feed to the rest of the colony. On the way back to the nest, the ants drop what it called a ‘trail pheromone’, letting the other ants know where the tasty food supply is. In turn, these ants follow the trail to the bait which explains why you initially see more ants.

The active ingredient in the bait interferes with the ants' digestive systems, eventually killing the ants within 24-48 hours after consumption. This slow kill gives the worker ants enough to get back and share the bait with the colony. Baiting is the only way to successfully wipe out the ants you see and the thousands you don’t.
