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.

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.

Review RateANT FREE AND LOVING IT!
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!
Review RateIf You Want To Be Living Ant Free
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.
Review RateWould like to see refills
I like the Terro yard stakes but was wondering why they don't make refills for them.
Review RateBait stakes really work, rain doesn't stop them and buying direct is very cost effective.
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.
Review RateGreat product!!!
Review Rateconsidered selling my house before discovering this product!
This product changed my life. After two decades of ineffective ant control efforts we developed a perimeter defense strategy and argentinean ant infestations are now a thing of the past. The form factor on these stakes is also very helpful for baiting on soil. Only issue I have is that the plastic caps sometimes tear off unevenly, so it's good to keep a pair of pliers on hand when putting out new bait.
Worked great have not seen anymore in the house or outside.
Review RateWorked Perfectly!
First time ever had ants ( tiny tiny sugar ants) in the kitchen of this 40 yr old house. They were coming in thru the tiniest of cracks in the Granite countertops. Within 10-14 days not a trace of any Ant with the Terro liquid bait stations. Worked perfectly as advertised ! I now have Liquid bait stations all around the perimeter of the house. Thank You Terro !!!
Review RateTry something else this didn't work
I bought this for some ant hills I had in my yard. This just made the hills get bigger. It did nothing for killing the antsResponse From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience? How long was the product applied? This liquid will kill the ants that consume it within 24-48 hours. Depending on the size of the colony, it may take several weeks to notice a decrease in the number of ants.

Review RateFive stars!
These outside stakes really worked for me! Near my kitchen sink ants had found their way from outside to inside. Every spring there was a battle! I tried everything, including calling my county extension agent, contacting a commercial pest control company and yard maintenance professionals. I will definitely purchase this product again! I purchased and distributed a sufficient number of stakes and placed them along the outside perimeter of my home near the location of the kitchen sink.
- 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.
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.
