Product Description:

Terro Ant KillerTERRO® Ant Killer attracts and kills all common household ants. The liquid ant killer is specifically designed – using the active ingredient Borax – to allow worker 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. 

To use our best ant killer, simply apply the product directly from the bottle onto the provided cardboard squares and place near indoor areas where ants are spotted.

How Does It Work?

TERRO® Ant Killer is a bait product, so at first ants will come in large numbers, but they will soon disappear. This liquid ant killer is specifically formulated to allow worker ants to consume the product and survive long enough to carry the liquid ant killer back to the nest and deliver a dose to the rest of the colony. Baiting enables you to get rid of both the ants you see and the ants you don't.   

Leave our at-home ant killer undisturbed while the ants are actively feeding on it. Be sure to eliminate all other food sources in the area. This will ensure that the ants aren’t tempted to eat anything but the deadly liquid ant killer – indoors and out.

While the active ingredient in our indoor ant killer will ultimately kill the worker ant, it interferes with the ant's digestive system and works just slowly enough that the worker has time to get back and share the ant bait with the rest of the colony. This slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough bait to the rest of the colony.  

Directions for Use

Why Liquid over gel bait?

Tear the "PLACE TERRO® HERE" cardboard squares from the home ant killer packaging along the perforated lines and simply apply the liquid ant killer directly from the bottle onto the square. Small pieces of paper, cardboard or foil may also be substituted.

Place this household ant killer where ants are seen, such as the edges of sinks, tubs, window sills, under food cabinets, along floors and baseboards, and in corners. Do not skimp on bait placements; the more bait placements, the better.

The key to effectively eliminating the ant infestation is to monitor the placements and ensure there is always a fresh supply of TERRO® Ant Killer for the ants to feast on. Depending on the size of the ant invasion, complete control may take up to two weeks.

Resist the temptation to interfere when the ants come in droves — your patience will pay off as you watch your ant infestation dwindle and then disappear.  

Since invading ants usually have outdoor nesting sites, it often helps to put our best ant killer outside the home, close to where ants are found entering the structure. Ants typically follow defined trails from the nest to food or water, so placing the ant killer close to these trails will improve control.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sudden death for ants I've used the Terro liquid antkiller for years. Whenever I set out a few dabs ants are soon fighting with each other to get their fair share. Astoundingly more effective than all the more expensive fancy treatments.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terro ant bait takes out Argentine Ant Terrorists I love this stuff! It's safe and effective like nothing else that I've ever tried for my ant problems. The ants devour this bait and take it back to their nests to annihilate the entire colony. We had been under assault by Argentine ants every season for many years! They were constant uninvited house guests with chronic mass dwellings living all over our 0.75 acre yard! I resisted using chemicals on these home invaders and tried less toxic repellants but suffered such huge ant populations we thought they would carry our whole house away! Finally, we gave in to using an integrated pest management program with home perimeter spraying using Home Defense with repeated ant picnic bait stations using Terro ant bait when colonies appeared. Now, the Argentine ant population has been decimated and wandering populations from neighbors yards are easily curtailed with thoughtful placements of Terro bait. I recommend this stuff to everyone. Don't waste your hard earned dollars on anything else!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works long term I have used the product for two years and for getting rid of ants it sure beats sprays and other treatments. Follow the instructions and I would not suggest using indoors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A super result from Terro Ant Killer! My ant killer and traps arrived about 10 days ago, and I excitedly put the traps down where I thought the ants were coming into my home. Just as noted on the website, ants all gathered around the Terro Borax liquid on the traps. Some just died there, but a few must have staggered back to the nest, because within 2-3 days I just stopped seeing any more ants! Thanks, Terro!

    Q&A

    I've been baiting the ants in my kitchen with this for almost 3 weeks now.They come in swarms, then it goes down to almost none, and then a few days later there's a resurgence again. How long till they're gone??

    Asked by: SuzyQ
    This product is a bait, so it is normal to see an increase in ant activity. Ants consuming the bait will die within 24-48 hours, however; it can take a few days or weeks to eliminate an entire colony, depending on its size. Keep in mind that the bait must be in liquid form for the ants to consume it. If the level of ant activity increases and decreases, it may be due to multiple colonies or a very large colony feeding at the bait.

    I've been putting Terri out on the bathroom counter......they just keep coming...this has been going on for at least 3 weeks....do they take this back to the nest or how is it supposed to kill them?? Does this go out of date...I feel like I'm feeding them

    Asked by: Frustrated
    When the bait is placed down, it is common to see an increase in ant activity. Ants will gather the bait and return with it to the nest and share it with the rest of the colony, including the queen(s). Ants that consume the bait will die within 24-48 hours, however; it can take a few days or weeks to eliminate an entire colony, depending on its size.

    Attracted carpenter ants inside house well at first. 1week later they don't seem interested. Numbers seem reduced, but wonder if I missed something 

    Asked by: Joeinseattle
    We do apologize that we do not recommend this product for carpenter ants as they will not be attracted consistently. At different points in their life cycle, they may feed on sweet food sources. Other times, they will have more of a protein-based diet.

    All About

    Ants

    There are more than 10,000 known species of ants living throughout the world. Like other insects, they have six legs; each with three joints. Ants have large heads with compound eyes, elbowed antennae and powerful jaws. Ants are social insects that live in structured nest communities throughout the world. The species of ant determines whether they live underground, in mounds built at ground level, in wood structures or in plants or trees.

    More About Ants

    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.
