Description
TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits Stakes

TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes stop the problem at the source. The stakes target ants outdoors before they make their way into your home. The slow killing poison gives ants the time to transport the bait back to their colony, eliminating all worker ants and the queen. The bait attracts and kills all common household ants.

How to Use
How to Use TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes come pre-filled and ready-to-use. Simply place the stakes in outdoor areas where you see traces of ants, break off the activation tab, and let the bait work its magic. No tools are needed to push the stake in the ground, just your hand. A see-through window enables you to monitor the bait level so you know when it’s time to be replaced. When bait is empty, dispose stakes in the garbage.
Where To Place Bait Stakes

Place TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes near ant colonies or other locations where they are numerous. Apply the stakes near the perimeter of your home, especially near entrances where you think they may be getting inside. The stakes are weatherproof, offering protection in any condition. The more bait placements, the better.

Stake Placement
 
kill ants

Kill the Ants You See, And the Ones You Don’t When the stakes are first placed in the ground, a large number of ants are going to appear. Don’t worry because this is perfectly normal. The formula was created to allow worker ants to consume the product and survive long enough to transport the bait back to the nest. They will then infect the rest of the colony with the poison, eliminating the worker ants and the queen.

ANT FREE AND LOVING IT! By bali

I spent several seasons battling ants all over my house. I would wake up in the morning to find fifty plus ants all over my kitchen counter top, they were every where. I tried, ant & roach killers but they did not work, I called a professional exterminator and that did not work. In desperation I started searching on line and found Terro, I purchased a bunch of ant traps for inside and outside the house and that was the end of my issue with ants! Love this product it is extremely effective and not toxic odors!

If You Want To Be Living Ant Free By bali

I paid hundreds of dollars to professional exterminators to rid me of these tiny ants that invaded my home, to no avail. In desperation I tried the these ant traps inside and outside of my house. Now I am ant free! This product really delivers.

Bait stakes really work, rain doesn't stop them and buying direct is very cost effective. By Sue

Every summer along our driveway wall, steps and walkway ants swarm in the hundreds. Spraying was washed away by all the rain. So when I saw your ad I figured it made a lot of sense to stake out a perimeter around the house and I did. A week later the "traffic jam" outside our house was down to a trickle, 2 weeks and no "caravans". The bait stakes stood up to the rain. The sun came out, some ants did too but the bait stakes were there and ready. Not only are the bait stations effective but I've saved money buying directly from you.

I am so glad I found the Terro ant stakes!!! By LEM

I use Terro ant stakes every spring. And I no longer have to worry about ants in my house. Before I started using them, I have had to throw out most of the food in my pantry, but no more.

These outdoor baits work for me By Tim

I put these baits outside because the exterminator has never been able to keep ants from getting inside, where they do eventually die. Since using the baits, I haven't found ants in the house. This is a 1950's home and there are limitless small imperfections in the walls; so far, this seems to be my best option.

Hole too big, rain water gets in By Louise

You need sissors to cut the product open. Once open, any RAIN FALLING is going to get into that hole you just made. I checked the photos here, my hole was actually smaller... So, I COVERED the baits to keep out the water, but sludge, grass & other items STILL GET IN. Not certain this is the best Product.

Hello Louise,

Thank you for providing this feedback! Depending on the heaviness of rainfall, some rain may enter the packaging. If large storms are expected, we recommend removing the stakes to help keep them from becoming diluted.

Needs some re-design By MadMatt

We tried these compared to the big bulky stakes with the round pods. These traps seam convenient and have a low profile. But there is a MAJOR issue with them. They fill with rain water FAST and wash out. Within 1 heavy rain, all of the product is washed out by a high wind and rain. The other outdoor pods Terroo makes, hold their content and do not run out, even with heaviest downpour.

Q&A
Q.Can ant stakes be placed directly in the ant hill if not where should they be placed?
A.

You can certainly place the ant stakes right next to or near the ant hill. Just be sure not to diturb the entrance of the hill so the ants can still get in and out.

Q.I have been placing 2 baits near the corner of my garage. Solution seems to be gone in 2 to 3 days. Area is shaded. Could ants be consuming it that quickly or is it likely to be evaporating. Temperatures here reach 80’s.
A.

Your ants sound like they're starving! It can take between 4 days to 2 weeks to wipe out a colony depending on its size, but if you see that the bait is getting eaten sooner than that, it's alright. The bait within the stakes should not evaporate at that temperature. 

Q.What harm can come to household pets in contact or eating this product?
A.

The ingredients of this product are water, sugar and borax. Borax is a naturally occurring mineral found in many common household items such as hand soaps and detergents.  We recommend sharing these ingredients and any safety concerns with your vet.

All About

Ants

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.

FAQs

How do I know when to replace the Outdoor Ant Bait Stakes?

The Ant Bait Stakes have a see-thru window that enables you to monitor how much bait is in the stake, so there’s no guesswork involved. When you look through the window you will see that small ‘stairs’ are built into the bait pack. This was designed to increase bait consumption. As the bait is consumed, the liquid level diminishes. The ants march down the steps until they reach the bottom of the pack.

I just placed several TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes around the perimeter of my house and instead of killing the ants, it attracted hundreds more! Am I doing something wrong?

You have nothing to worry about, this initial increase in ants is perfectly normal. As worker ants forage for food and water, they are quickly attracted to the sweet liquid in the TERRO® liquid ant bait and swarm towards it. The ants consume the bait and then head back to their nest to share the liquid with the rest of the colony. On the way back to the nest to share the bait, the ants drop what it called a ‘trail pheromone’, which lets the other ants know where the food supply is. In turn, these ants follow the trail to the bait which explains why you will initially see more ants. The active ingredient in the bait interferes with the ants' digestive systems, eventually killing them within 24-48 hours after consumption. This slow kill is necessary because it gives the worker ants enough time to get back and forth to the colony to share the bait

This slow kill is necessary because it gives the worker ants enough time to get back and forth to the colony to share the bait.

Is there an expiration date on the TERRO® Outdoor Ant Bait Stakes?

There is not an expiration date because the effectiveness of the active ingredient (Borax) does not decrease over time. However, like any food-based product, the bait may become less appealing to foraging ants after an extended shelf life. Our rule of thumb is to use fresh bait if you’ve had the same liquid bait for more than two years.
