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.

Great ant killer By Me vs the Ants

Nuclear option sounds about right, just bought this and applied it along the kitchen splash board. Coincidently, I had another trap from a well known brand that hasn,t worked along the trail. The ants actually go up the wall to avoid the other trap to get to the Terro Ant Killer.

Very Satisfied By Truetexan

Bought a house in 2000. Soon found that it was extremely infested with sugar ants. Ants were constantly getting into the dishwasher, bathtub, and shower. They were destroying boxed food in the pantry, daily. I sprayed a lot of poison, which didn't work. Then, I tried Terro liquid ant killer. It worked amazingly well. My favorite way to apply it is by using a Post-it Note. I just stick it to the wall in every ant trail, then apply a few drops of Terro. I would re-apply as needed, daily for 2 or 3 days. After about 3 days, the ants greatly diminished. Then, after a couple of weeks, the ants were gone! It has now been over 10 years. The ants remained gone. Anytime I find new ants in the house, I use Terro Ant Killer. It works! Thankyou Terro!

Just feeding ants By r

Many years ago I used Terro to get rid of ants in a bathroom. I put the bait out and the ants were permanently gone within hours. Fortunately I haven't had any ant problems until about 2 weeks ago when I found ants in the laundry room. I purchased some Terro expecting similar results. The active ingredient has changed since my first use. Not sure how this is supposed to work now. Are the ants supposed to keep eating until they become obese and eventually die from diabetes? They just keep eating and eating. One morning I looked and the ants were all linked together spelling out the word, "MORE". It has been over 2 weeks. Seems like a waste of money to me. Sort of reminds me of when Coca Cola tried to change their formula to New Coke. It didn't work any more.

Response From Terro®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We are sorry to hear that the desired results have not yet been seen and will be happy to help.

The formula for this product has remained unchanged since the 1980s. This bait is designed to kill the ants that consume it within 24-48 hours. This allows them time to take the bait back to the colony to share with other ants. Depending on the size of the colony, it may take several weeks until a decrease in numbers is seen. We recommend continuing to apply the bait until there is a sharp drop in the number of ants. For larger infestations, a contact killer may be needed.

Thank you! By Chris

Like all the other reviewers previously stated, don’t think twice about buying this product, do it ASAP. Will get the job done and fun to watch the ants engorge themselves to doom! Without a doubt the best $4 I have ever spent and I don’t have to worry about toxicity with the kids or pets. Buy it!

Working By Deborah

I think that hundreds of ant must have invaded our crawl space before they appeared in our kitchen. I refuse to use toxic products, and although it's taken quite a long time to get rid of all those ants, we're finally down to just a few, thanks to the Terro liquid we've been using.

Nothing works better, NOTHING! By Stingray

Had an older mobile home in Arizona that ants had literally taken over, filled sections of the outer wall from bottom to top plates, as well as a basketball sized crowd of them hanging under the kitchen sink. Tried everything we had on hand, nothing seemed to work except wasp spray, but ran out of that real quick. 2:00AM, no stores open, getting panicked, they're in the bed, shower, everywhere but the PANTRY! Finally got to the store when it opened and was told to use the TERRO liquid bait. Did that, amazed at how quickly the ants congregated around those drops and began consuming it all. Couldn't believe it, but true! Just a few hours later, they were GONE! ALL OF THEM! Now that we're living in Oklahoma, I've stocked up with plenty of it and use it religiously!

The nuclear option for ants By Thomas Jones

We had a colony of ghost ants get inside our apartment in Hawaii. Over the course of a week they had made it into the kitchen and into 2 bedrooms despite our attempts to kill them with things like raid or other traps. I was starting to lose my mind because they were getting everywhere. I realized at this point we had made one colony into at least 3 through "budding". We went out and got a bunch of stuff, and this tiny little bottle of Terro Ant Killer looked like a long shot. i used the little cardboard plates and set out a bunch in all the areas we saw the ants, and watched a movie with the family. About a half hour later I went to see if there were any ants and HOLY GOD. They were all over this stuff. They had lined up around the edges like wildabeast drinking from the last waterhole in the Africa. I thought we had a few hundred ants, but there must have been a thousand. I checked, and all the other traps were in a similar state. I started to laugh out loud like a madman. In 24 hours, it was all over. the bait was vacant except for about a dozen ants who got stuck and drowned. We haven't seen a single ant for over 3 weeks now. The most difficult thing about this product is watching the ants go nuts with the bait and resisting the urge to kill them when you see it. Its disgusting. But do like I did, laugh like a madman and rub your hands together. They are already dead, and if you leave them to it, they will spread the pestilence to all their disgusting kin. If ants ever become sentient, they will put Terro on trial for crimes against antkind, because this is ant genocide in a bottle.

Q&A
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.

Q.I put out the liquid drops yesterday morning. The ants were swarming around the baits within an hour. Upon returning early evening, I could see that they had consumed all of the Terro. Some of the bait stations (pieces of cardboard) I was able to add more drops to without disturbing the ants. A couple of them I disturbed the ants. Today, 24 hours later, the ants are just kind of sitting around like a herd of cattle not doing much. They're definitely alive but they're not really doing anything and only a few are consuming any of the bait/liquid. My question is, does disturbing them cause something to be released by the ant when it's scared thus causing no other ants to come back to that bait station? IE...have the ants marked that area as bad juju for them? Should I remove that station and discard it and clean that area so that no "trails" are their for them to follow and it's basically fresh for them to discover once again with a brand new bait station?
A.

It sounds as if the product is beginning to affect them. The ants that consume the bait will die within 24-48 hours. If some of the ants are coming back to the bait, we do not recommend disturbing the stations. A decrease in activity should be seen within a few days to a few weeks.

Q.Will Terro Liquid ant killer kill carpenter ants?
A.

This product is not recommended for carpenter ants as they are typically looking for a protein based food source. However, if they consume the product, it will effectively kill them.

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.
