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.Date published: 2016-07-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Kountrygirl from Love it Intoduced to this product when it first came out while working in pest control business. Ot has been the best product out there for safe indoor ant control. Highly recommendDate published: 2016-07-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Ant Free at Last 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!Date published: 2016-07-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Sugar62 from The only ant killer you would ever need! this was my third time ordering the Terro liquid Ant Killer....Ive tried others and there's no contest...I would never buy anything else ever againDate published: 2016-07-17Rated 4 out of 5 by countrymouse from better then other product TERROu00ae Liquid Ant Killer. worked better then a gel product from another company.

Follow the instructions and I would not suggest using indoors.Date published: 2016-06-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattleite 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!Date published: 2016-06-08Rated 5 out of 5 by spoof1956 from I love it I have 2 rentals property's that seem to get ants every year. I give them the nice orange box and tell them how to use it. My tenants like it also. If they need more they pick up TERRO in the orange box.Date published: 2016-05-26
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??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.Date published: 2016-07-16
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 themWhen 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.Date published: 2016-07-16

Attracted carpenter ants inside house well at first. 1week later they don't seem interested. Numbers seem reduced, but wonder if I missed somethingWe 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.Date published: 2016-03-01

- All About
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.
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.
