Do you have an ant problem, but just can’t seem to find the perfect spot to place your ant bait? With TERRO® Multi-Surface Liquid Ant Baits, you can place bait stations almost anywhere! The unique, multi-surface application allows you to lay them flat or adhere them to surfaces around your home. Simply use the included adhesive strips to place the pre-filled, ready-to-use bait stations on walls, under cabinets and a variety of other locations where they won’t be in the way. This convenient feature will also help to keep the bait stations out of reach of children and pets.
Plus, the discreet, two-color design allows them to blend in with your existing décor so you won’t even notice they are there. Just choose the color that blends in best with the spot you are placing it – either white or beige – then apply the adhesive strip to the opposite side.
How Does It Work?
Since this is a bait, initially you will see more ants – but don’t worry, this is a good thing. Why? As ants forage for food, they are easily attracted to the sweet liquid inside the bait stations. After finding it, 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 is slowly interfering with the ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing it, but leaving enough time for the ant 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.
It is important to keep the bait as undisturbed as possible while ants are actively feeding on it to ensure best results. It’s also essential to eliminate all other food sources in the area so that the ants aren’t tempted to eat anything but the bait.
Where to Place Liquid Ant Bait Stations
To get started, simply place TERRO® Multi-Surface Liquid Ant Baits near ant trails and other locations where ants are numerous. It’s also a good idea to stop ants in their tracks by placing bait stations anywhere ants may try to enter your home. The multi-surface design provides flexibility with your placement options so you can get the bait stations as close as possible to the ant action. For best results, use all four bait stations to ensure a sufficient supply for the unsuspecting ants to dine on.
