When you have a bug problem, you want it to be handled as fast and as simply as possible. TERRO® Ant & Roach Baits offer a 2-in-1 solution that eliminates the need for multiple products. The top portion of the bait station houses a sweet liquid bait to attract ants, while the bottom portion contains a protein-based paste bait to target roaches and silverfish. For your convenience, each of the four bait stations comes pre-filled and ready to use.
Liquid Bait Eliminates Ants
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 inside the bait stations. 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 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.
Paste Bait Targets Roaches
The paste bait, located in the bottom portion of the trap, features a protein-based bait that attracts and kills roaches and silverfish, as well as some non-sweet-eating ants. Just like the liquid bait, it is designed to attract the target pest, so you may initially see more insects. As the active ingredient takes its toll, populations will decrease. In addition, there are three entry points to increase the effectiveness.
Where to Place Ant & Roach Baits
Place TERRO® Ant & Roach Baits near ant trails and locations where roaches and other insects are numerous. It’s also a good idea to place bait stations anywhere insects may try to enter your home. The compact size of the bait stations makes them perfect for discreet placement along baseboards, in corners, on counters, under and behind appliances, on windowsills and near garbage cans.
Bait Stays Fresh
For your convenience, TERRO® Ant & Roach Baits feature a stay-fresh tab that will keep the liquid bait fresh until it’s opened. Once you’ve chosen the perfect location, simply break off the tab and put the bait station in place!
Where to Place Ant & Roach Baits
TERRO® Ant & Roach Baits are very easy to use. Before placing the bait stations, be sure to remove other sources of food, such as crumbs, sugar and grease spots to prevent attracting them elsewhere. Do not place bait where you’ve already sprayed insecticides, as the pests may avoid the bait stations.
Hold the bait station firmly with bait pack tab facing up. Break off the tab being careful not to spill the bait.
Place the bait station on a flat surface near signs of target pests. Place additional bait stations anywhere ants, roaches or silverfish may enter your home. Heavily infested areas may require additional stations.
Monitor placements regularly, but do not interfere with the pests or bait stations. Replace when bait is depleted or every 3 months!
