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: 2016-05-26Rated 5 out of 5 by BennyP from Best On The Market When all other ant killing treatments failed I turned to Terro to get the job done. Hours after I had placed the liquid drops down, the ants came a running to drink that tasty death elixir. Within a week the amount of ants we had seen greatly decreased. And now we no longer see any of them. Thanks a ton!Date published: 2016-04-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogpainter from Years of Relief!! I have been living in the same home in the mid-atlantic portion of the country I the same home now for a little over 28 years. Every spring I have been plagued by ants getting into my home. About 15 years ago I tried using Terro liquid ant killer at the advice of my Mother, and I have been able to control the annual infestation ever since. I highly recommend this product to anyone who has a similar problem.Date published: 2016-04-25Rated 5 out of 5 by pammy from Tried and True!! This product is incredible!! Use as directed, and be prepared to stand back and watch the ants swarm! It takes restraint to just leave them to their "feast," but each day you will see fewer and fewer at "the party"! I used this, plus ant baits last spring, and ants were gone in 3 days. This spring, I put it down again, as directed, when I saw the first ant. As they did last year, more swarmed, but not anywhere near as many. Within 3 days, they are all GONE!! I will continue this routine for about a week, just to get any stragglers. This works like nothing else I've tried. I am going to stock up in fear of them changing the formula.Date published: 2016-04-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Chinois from Ants beware! Wonderful! Works exactly as advertised. It took about 10 days for the ants to be completely gone, but, the stuff worked!Date published: 2016-04-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Daisy from Good product. Liquid Ant Killer is a good product as it contains Borax which is not a poison and works by drying up the ants that infest my home. Each year they arrive and are a problem. I possibly think spiders eat the ants, as I have noticed no spiders since using the Borax drops. The ants are attracted to the bait stations placed away from getting further into my home and this keeps them from taking over the entire house. I definitely recommend Terro Liquid Ant Killer.Date published: 2016-04-16

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: 2016-05-27

Have a black ant problem with an occasional black carpenter ant showing up. Will the regular ant killer take care of both or do I need to get something else for the carpenter ants? ThanksThis product is recommended for ants that are attracted to sweet food. Due to the fact that sweets are not the primary diet of carpenter ants, we recommend our TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite when battling these pests. http://www.terro.com/terro-carpenter-ant-and-termite-killer-aerosol http://www.terro.com/terro-carpenter-ant-termite-killer-ready-to-use Several other products can also be used.

Not able to see any sort of trail, tiny ants on counter possibly come thru electric outlet openings. Put the bait liquid on the pieces of cardboard from box, but these ants seem to ignore it, go to edge of cardboard then leave it rather than go get it.If the ants are not attracted to the sweet bait, we recommend a contact killer such as our TERRO® Ant Killer Spray. http://www.terro.com/terro-ant-killer-sprayDate published: 2016-01-26
- 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.
