I discovered an ant trail coming through my laundry closet into my food pantry. I tried some DIY tricks but it didn't work. I discovered Terro Ant Killer while at Walmart. I googled it to see reviews. After reading so many good reviews, I purchased it. IT WORKS!!! I was impressed how quickly it got rid of the ants. I'm a customer for life! Thanks Terro for such an effective product to eliminate the ant problem expeditiously. Now what about spiders? lolDate published: 2016-11-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary from Ants be gone I love Terro Ant liquid. The Ants drink it up like candy. Then, they take it back to their little hideout and bam, within a few days, Ants dead all over. I also love the Ant Lawn Dust. So many Ant hills. Sprinkle this magic dust and poof, Ants gone.Date published: 2016-10-27Rated 5 out of 5 by grandma5751 from Ant-free! I purchased this to rid my home of ants. Within days the numbers dwindled to almost nonexistent. I'm sure that in a few weeks, my home will be ant-free!Date published: 2016-10-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy55 from Great product! I bought this because I had ants in my car!! I don't know how they got in there, but I put a dime size amount of ant killer in the front floorboard, the back seat floorboard and in the back of my SUV. After just a couple of hours, ants were swarming all over the traps! I didn't even think there could have been that many in my car! I was tempted to spray them with another ant killer, but after reading other reviews, I resisted, and let them eat. I left the liquid in there overnight, and the next day they were gone! I left the liquid in for a couple more days to make sure they were all dead, but I haven't seen the first ant. I am very happy with Terro liquid ant killer!Date published: 2016-09-15Rated 5 out of 5 by erin from easy to use Well, the ants LOVE this stuff. They literally line up to eat it. It's easy to see it being used by them and easy to use. The solution is thick and doesn't run. A little goes a long way. Thanks Terro!Date published: 2016-09-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Yuris from Carpenter ants I had a large nest of carpenter ants in my tree. I could not believe the activity of ants moving up in down the tree at night. There were hundreds of them. I bought some of the liquid gel and made a continuous line around the trunk so they would have to walk through it. Within a minute all the ants were consuming the terro gel. Next day. Not a single ant. I was shocked at how well this stuff works.Date published: 2016-08-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Joyce 10100 from fantastic I put this out at the first sign of ants inside my house this spring. It took 4 days to be ride of the ants for the spring and summer. I will for sure use it again next spring if I have to. I would say use this. The price is right and the results are GREAT !Date published: 2016-08-08Rated 5 out of 5 by V Scott from Great Product at Excellent Price I had 4 large outdoor colonies. Infestation of two trees and two good colonies going underneath my house. I purchased for $3 a pack of 4 liquid bait containers. Checked on bait spots in a couple of days making sure all was well. Needed to replace baits 3 times (the 3rd time I poured it onto our lava rocks). Within 3-4 weeks both colonies going under the house were gone. Still some occasional (slower) ants at trees so just left more out there to finish those off and to prevent new colonies from starting. I'm totally impressed. Wish I would have used this years ago.

- 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.
