TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait 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.

Where to Place Bait Stakes

Kill the Ants You See, & 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 Ant Bait Stakes

TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes kill ants before they enter your home. The liquid ant bait works to eliminate all common household ants.

We love TERRO stake traps!
Jul 9, 2023
We love these traps! We have not had an ant ???? problem in years since we started using them. I can’t praise a product enough. We were so tired of sprinkling diatomaceous earth all around the perimeter inside & outside house bc it was such a mess. Nice to have a product that we don’t have to worry with our pets & children bring around. Well done TERRO

Response from Admin

We're sorry to hear about this recent experience with these bait stations. We appreciate this feedback and have shared these comments and concerns with our Product Managers for review. When opening the bait station, we recommend bending the tab back and forth a few times to create a crease, then twisting off. If this proves difficult, you can use a pair of scissors. Placing the bait station on a piece of tinfoil can help to catch any leaks for easy cleanup. ​ Our bait stations have a 30 day return policy. Reach out to us at 1-844-837-7644 for assistance. Lauren

I have only used TERRO products once before. I had very good results and decide to try TERRO again. I have had very good results again, but do agree with other reviews that the tear off plastic to activate the product is difficult to use.

I am not sure if these are working. I placed them all around my house. Now 3 weeks later I am seeing ants in my house like never before. I think they are dying. Is this something that happen? I have never had them in my house before and they are mostly on the second floor.

On average it takes 2 weeks to eliminate a colony. For locations with multiple colonies or a single large colony, it may take longer. For additional information, please give us a call at 844-837-7644. -Kathryn

Horrible... The twist openers are hard to twist and break off. A waste of your money and unsafe.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we apologize for the difficulty experienced opening the bait stations! If the tabs do not easily twist off, scissors can be used instead.    Best regards, Susan
Non-toxic Method that Works
Jun 8, 2021
These non-toxic ant stakes do work but they take time to work and need to be periodically replaced. I've used them for quite a few years and they do control the aggressive ants in my yard.

Bad design
May 23, 2021
Maybe it works or maybe it doesn't. I'll never know as I CAN'T REMOVE THE TAB! Is there a trick to it? Very, very disappointed. $7 I'll never see again.

Great Products!
May 11, 2021
Last year we hired a company for an entire year at quite an expense to get rid of our ant problem in our kitchen. No amount of wiping down everything in the kitchen would deter the ant visits. So we decided we would try to get rid of them ourselves. We purchased you products on line, an upon receipt of them, we applied them - the stakes, powder and traps in various places around our house. I no longer have ants visiting our kitchen and it appears to date, the ant infestation has disappeared. Your product states that it keeps the pests away for up to 8 months. We certainly hope so. Delighted with your products!

Is there any ingredient difference (materials / quantities) between the T1812 and the T1813 liquid outdoor ant bait stakes? Have used T1812 for yrs (mentioned Capsacin) but T1812 says Borax the 5.4% ingredient. Is it just the shape of the carrier container and / or which contains more product?
Question by: Mo on May 4, 2023, 2:07 PM
The only difference it the stake itself. The ant bait is the same great formula!
Answer by: Susan (Admin) on May 9, 2023, 10:03 AM
