Questions about TERRO® Multi-Surface Liquid Ant Baits – 4 Discreet Bait Stations
The bait within the stations is sweet-based, which is not usually what carpenter ants crave. The carpenter ants that do have a sweet-tooth will be effected by the Borax within the bait. We recommend contact killers, such as TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer, for carpenter ants, as the majority of carpenter ants seek baits that are protein-based or grease-based.
The liquid ant bait in these stations contains water as an ingredient and will not be effected by additional water. The bait itself is also protected by the station's casing, and should not have issues when placed near a sink. The water may have an effect on the adhesive strips if you choose to use them.
When used as directed, these bait stations are safe to use in kitchens and other areas.
While this product does not have an expiration date, we recommend replacing after two years to keep the bait fresh. As long as the product is in liquid form, it is still active. Over time, the liquid may start to crystallize, causing the bait to turn a different color.
The adhesive strips should be placed between the adhesive placement guides with the printed side of the adhesive facing out. Press and hold the strip firmly for 10 seconds.
We recommend replacing the bait stations when the bait is depleted until ants are controlled. The inserts are not replaceable.
This particular design is best used indoors.
Due to several variables, we do not have an estimated time frame on how long each station will last. We recommend monitoring the bait stations and replacing them as needed.
To remove, we recommend holding the bait station and twisting slowly to remove it from the adhesive strip (being careful not to spill any bait). Once the bait station is removed, pull the adhesive strip to stretch until the strip is freed from the application surface.
