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.Best used for: OutdoorsNear Ant ColoniesHome PerimetersHow 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.
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.KIll Ants With Terro® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes kill ants before they enter your home.

Review RateBait Stakes are GREATI love the liquid bait stakes. I surround my house with them and can honestly say I rarely see an ant in my home, if at all - this did not use to be the case. With regard to rain filling them, I try to place them opposite the general driving wind direction, or tip them ever so slightly so that if it rains, the rain runs off rather than goes in - this seems to have helped for the most part. With regard to the tabs not coming off easily - I typically carry a pair of snips, pliers or scissors with me. If the twist method does not completely work - it does not take much to open the hole with another implement. Overall - I feel this is a GREAT product. I do like the idea of refills though to cut down on plastic waste... thanks Terro
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 RateI am so glad I found the Terro ant stakes!!!
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.
Review RateOpening the product
I have wrote a review but I forgot to mention it says you can easily pull the tabs off you need scissors to cut it off and it’s very hard sometimes it splashes.
Review RateVery good working product
Very good product I bought numerous boxes and I have recommended it to so many other people that are now using it.
Review RateThese outdoor baits work for me
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.
Review RateHole too big, rain water gets in
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.Response From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
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.

- 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.
