Ants can be a problem anywhere – in the home, at work and everywhere in between. To kill common household ants, place TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits in areas where they attract foraging ants that take the bait back to the nest. As the bait circulates through the colony, it kills the ants you see and the ones you don’t. The new and improved snap-off tab makes the stations easy to use. Plus, the closed bait stations prevent the bait from drying out to provide the ants with a continuous supply of liquid, day and night. Note: complete control may take up to two weeks.How Liquid Ant Bait Works 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, sugary 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, Borax, 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. The communal nature of an ant colony allows the bait to be spread to hundreds, if not thousands, of individual ants.Where to Place Ant Baits
Place TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits near trails and other locations where ants are numerous. It’s also a good idea to place bait stations anywhere ants may try to enter your home. The compact size of the bait stations makes them perfect for placement along baseboards, in corners, on counters, under and behind appliances, and on windowsills. The more bait placements, the better!Easy-Open Tab Each TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait station is sealed so the bait stays fresh until you’re ready to use them. To open the bait, hold the station vertically and twist the new and improved tab. This opens up the station and allows ants to access the bait. Place the entire station on a flat surface, keeping the ant bait inside the station.
Note: Some earlier versions of TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait required it to be opened by scissors. The new snap-off tab eliminates this method of opening, but some earlier versions may still be sold while supplies last.How to Use Liquid Ant Baits
TERRO® Liquid Ant 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 ants elsewhere. Do not place bait where you’ve already sprayed insecticides, as the pests may avoid the bait stations.

Review RateNot impressed at all! Very disappointed
I have never used these before and never will again! The ants came and clumped up in other places after going in the bait. I have waited over a month and I have seen no improvements. Going back to the other kind I use to use. It was a complete waste of my husbands hard earned money..Response From Terro®Rachel : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHi there!

Ants went into the trap no prob! With the extra help of corn meal and borax (the corn meal and borax were my first attempts) the ants were gone within 2 days! Awesome product!
Review RateHate the new design
Hate the new "snap off" design. The former ramp design worked perfectly: we'd line the ramp up directly in the ant's path / trail and they'd walk right up, taste the bait and then run back to the nest to tell all their worker buddies. Within two days the entire ant nest would be dead. It worked perfectly every time. Now the ants walk under the stupid little opening and keep on going their merry way to the cat food bowl. Seriously, who decided that making ants climb into a tiny hole was better than allowing them to walk up a nice wide ramp? Honestly, this new design is completely ineffective and a totally waste. Perfect example of why you shouldn't tinker with a good product. You just lost one of your best customers; we used to buy hundreds of these traps every year, and told everyone how great Terro Bait Traps were, but no more.Response From Terro®Rachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for your feedback. It has been shared with our Product Manager. Ants are known to be climbers, so we are sorry to hear that you are experiencing this kind of difficulty. If the traps are not attracting the ants, we suggest trying a contact killing spray or an outdoor treatment like TERRO® Ant Killer Plus. Additionally, most of our products are backed by our 30-day return policy, which means you may return it within 30 days of receipt for a refund. If you need any further assistance, please don't hesitate to give us a ring at 1-844-837-7644.
Review RateNot great
The ants went into the bait no problem but couldn’t get out and I guess died In the bait so the issue want resolvedResponse From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this experience. While some ants may perish inside the bait stations, plenty more will still be able to make it back to the nest and share the bait with the rest of the colony. Typically any ants that consume the bait will die within 24-48 hours, however it may take a few days or weeks for complete control.
Review RateGood stuff
This seems like the best product I've tried so far.
Review RatePackage doesn't work
I've used these ant bait traps for years in spite of having an exterminator. They worked fine until the newer package design. We put the trap on the counter and nothing happened. Is there a way to fix the opening to make it easier for the ants to enter? Thanks for your time.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Ants are excellent climbers, so if the ones currently visiting you are not interested in the bait stations, it is likely because they're not sweet-eating ants. This product will only be effective for those ants that are currently consuming sugary foods. Please feel free to contact us directly at 844-837-7644, we're happy to help!
Review RateTasty bait, apparently
We use these in both commericlal and residential properties and they work as well as the ones we were getting from the exterminator, but a lot less expensive. The ants love them
Review RateStill works not as good tho as it used to be
Would have been 5 star but since the package has been redesigned it's harder for the ants to find the bait. Even if they are excellent climbers. They run right under the bait. The ramp of the bait doesnt touch the ground anymore for them to enter into. Terro please go back to the original design. Your customers would appreciate it if you did.
Review RateThey took away the ramp now ants can’t get in
Terro has made a huge error with this design change. The basic recipe hasn’t changed boric acid in a sweet liquid. But now the new design removes the ramp and one must employ creative cutting and twists of the plastic to allow the ants access to the insecticide..Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Ants are excellent climbers, and can still access the bait inside the new design of these bait stations. If ants are not entering the bait stations, they're likely not currently interested in sweets and an alternate product may be needed. Please feel free to contact us directly at 844-837-7644 for assistance, we're happy to help!
Review RateDon't like new snap off opening tab
I also am not thrilled with the new snap off design. I cannot snap it off and am not sure I am cutting it correctly. I am finding it not as effective as the previous packages.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback! As long as the bait station has been opened enough for ants to access the bait, it will attract sweet-eating ants. If your ants are not heading for open bait stations, they may be interested in other types of food and an alternate control method such as a contact killing spray may be needed. For more assistance, please contact us directly at 844-837-7644, we're happy to help!
- 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.
Why are ants always invading my kitchen, bathroom and laundry areas?
Ants are attracted to food, water and shelter. Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms provide at least two of these conditions, making it an ideal haven for ants to congregate.
What’s the difference between liquid and gel ant baits?
It’s a little known fact that adult worker ants cannot digest solid food (bait). Their anatomy is designed for transporting and digesting liquids only. Solid foods must be carried back to the colony for additional processing by the larvae stage. Liquid baits exploit this unique physiology by making it easy for ants to transport the liquid bait back to the rest of the colony, including the queen, larvae and other workers.
How long does it take to eliminate an ant colony with TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait?
Remember, this is a BAIT ant control product and will initially attract a lot of ants. The ants consume large quantities of the bait and then return to the nest and share it with the rest of the colony, including the queen, eventually eliminating the entire colony. This process can take from just a couple days to several weeks, depending on the size of the colony. Each ant that consumes the bait will die within 24 - 48 hours. It is important to leave the bait as undisturbed as possible while the ants are actively feeding on it. You should replace it only if it becomes inaccessible to the ants, or empty.
