Description

Attract and kill the ants you see and the ones you don’t with TERRO Liquid Ant Baits. The liquid, which contains borax, is specifically designed to allow worker ants to consume the product, and survive long enough to carry the liquid back to the nest. Ants consume the liquid ant bait and return to the nest where they pass it around to the rest of the colony. The active ingredient in the bait slowly interferes with the ants’ digestive systems, ultimately killing them.
Since this is a bait product, you will initially see more ants as they are attracted to the liquid – but don’t worry, this is a good thing. After the bait is consumed, insect populations will begin to decline. Complete control may take up to two weeks.

Q: Can this be used outdoors?

submitted by Target Customer - 4 years ago
  • A: They are not designed for outside use. We recommend the Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes for outdoor use.

    submitted byWoodstream Team - 4 years ago
    Brand expert
  • A: Yes. It will need protection from any children(any age), pets, rain/sprinklers and wind. I have used it near ant hills but once the wind flips it or a shower comes, it is useless. I know what you're thinking: Did it work? Yes for the hill. I have no idea if it got the nest. After I lost a few(due to wind, rain and, once, a mower, I gave up trying. They seem to be effective inside as I put one under the microwave about twice a year and it clears the problem.

Q: Ants on kitchen counter top near sink, What's best place to put the ant baits? Should we also get the type to put outside under the kitchen window?

submitted by sickofants - 3 years ago
  • A: We would recommend placing the stations where you see ant activity.

Q: Are these the ones with the ramp that the ants can walk up (where you cut a slit in the bottom), or are they the ones with the snap off tab? The ones with the snap off tab are not as effective as the ants cannot get in as easily.

submitted by Kris - 3 years ago
  • A: Our bait stations with the ramp are no longer manufactured. The newer design is with the twist off tab. The liquid formula has not changed.

Q: When do you replace the trap? I’ve been checking on one trap in particular for about 5 hours, and it’s like they’re having a field day. When will this be over? lol

submitted by Jordansmommy18 - 4 years ago

Q: How long can these Terro Liquid Ant Baits be stored(ambient temps) and still remain effective?

submitted by fhj52 - 4 years ago

These did nothing. I put them out and the ants went around them to get to my dog’s dog food.
1 reply from Woodstream Team team - 10 days ago
We're sorry to hear this! If this doesn't attract them, the ants may have found another food source, be seeking a grease-based vs. sugar-based food, or be in the breeding cycle of their colony and not interested in eating. If you continue to be unhappy with your results, we recommend contacting the original retailer for assistance with a refund.

I absolutely love u all who invented this brilliant situation! Sometimes the traps or bait inside gets a little dried up but last summer we had some bait stations fully solidify into solid crystal form I guess is what it resembled so I put some gloves on went to the sink & let some water drip inside the stations that were dry & then I covered the hole quick gave it a good shake up & put it back out & they loved it again. I assume it worked but that was end of summer so this year as I started seeing them pop up right around the end of March in Western WA & here I am to get these to handle it much sooner! I can't say thank u enough really & truly from the bottom of my heart THIS STUFF REALLY DOES WORK HAVE PATIENCE USE TERRO DUST & THEIR OUTSIDE BAITS IF ITS REALLY BAD CLEAN UP UR PILES OF LEAVES NEAR THE HOME & U CAN ALSO SPRINKLE DIAMETICUS EARTH IF NO RAIN FOR LIKE 3 DAYS OUTDOORS AROUND THE HOME TO HELP ANTS MUST WALK OVER DE BUT ITLL HELP TOO BE CAUTIOUS D.E. DIES HARM BEES. BUY PET FRIENDLY FOOD SAFE FORMULA GOOD LUCK I LOVE TERRO!!!!

I’ve never used a product from them that didn’t work, that said, this product did work fairly fast and efficiently. Unfortunately, I have no idea how this happened, the liquid kept spilling every where onto our carpet. I made sure everything was done properly!! It’s a pain to get out of carpet, but the ants will still get trapped in it too lol.. so, it works in and out the container. I’d use them cautiously. I do believe it could still be user error, but either way heads up!

Coco - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
This product really works! I was impatient waiting for my landlord to come spray to get rid of these ants so I decided to see if I could find something in the meantime. I followed the instructions and put down 3 baits instead of 6 and by the next day the ants were gone. The only thing I did differently was that I accidentally spilled a little of the liquid on the floor when putting down the bait. I’m glad that happened because the ants came running. I highly highly recommend!

The tabs don't tear off, not impressed so far

2 out of 5 stars
Jaytwp - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
The tabs did not “snap off” for me as advertised. I cut them off which is not a big deal but it made a bit of a mess trying to snap them off, as they’re advertised to do. As for the efficacy of the product, I’m on day 2 and have way more ants but perhaps they need another day or so to work to bring the product back to their nest. They’re only drawn to 1 out of the 5 bait stations I put out for some reason, they’re all in close proximity.

So happy we bought these! Checked the reviews and decided on these. We had a big ant problem and it got rid of most of them in just a couple hours. Some die on the spot and some bring it back to their colony. We will always go back to these!

Bro it literally doesn’t work. I could throw ants on it and they’ll just walk away
1 reply from Woodstream Team team - 3 months ago
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We're sorry to hear that the desired results were not seen with the liquid bait. It is designed to attract sweet eating ants for them to gather the bait and return with it to the colony. If ants are not going to the bait, then they may not be interested in sweet foods or they have another food source available. We would recommend the use of sprays or other contact killers to help combat these ants.

This product works great but patience is key. It will seem like it’s not working because it attracts a lot of ants, but that because it’s solving the issue at the source. Give it a day or two and there will be no more ants at the site.

spektyr - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
These baits worked for me but I offer an important warning. These baits will attract a lot of ants, and I do mean a LOT. This being the case, it is extremely important to place them right where the ants are entering the house. This can take some time if there are multiple points of entry, so be prepared to have a large ant invasion until you locate all the points where they are entering. Once you locate and bait the entry point(s) by placing the open end of the bait as close to it as possible facing that point it helps to clean up the trails they were originally following with a good all-purpose cleaner, which should limit their travels to the bait alone. Also be prepared to be cleaning up a lot of dead ants. Depending on the size of the colony you are dealing with it can take a month or more before you are no longer seeing any significant ant activity so be patient. Monitor the baits periodically and replace them when you can no longer see any liquid left in them, which can be difficult since they will fill up with ants pretty quickly. Looking from the side of the baits you can see the clear area at the bottom when there is still liquid in them. If it looks like there are only dead ants then discard the baits and replace them with fresh ones. For me it took almost two months and almost a whole box of baits before my problem was eliminated. The ants were in my bathroom so I only needed to bait one point of entry once I located it. Now I don't see any ant activity at the bait and I only see an occasional straggler so I consider my problem pretty much solved. As far as I know these baits are effective against the small sugar ants. I don't know how effective they will be against other ant types. I would definitely recommend these baits to anyone with a sugar ant problem as long as they are prepared and patient enough to endure the time it takes to eliminate their ant problem.

Absolutely love this! I know it says for indoor use. But the ants were sporadically showing up in random places throughout the house. But there were 2 trails on our patio going into the house just 3 feet from each other. So I placed 2 baits right next to each trail. We have a canopy covering the whole patio so the bait was protected until we had a heaven rain (they lasted 2 1/2 weeks outside) 1 was covered in ants with in a day, the other not so much but still a decent amount. Within a week we had scattered dead ant all over the laundry room window (which is right above the second trail outside) & behind the kitchen trash can ( inside by the 1st trail). There are a few random ants in the laundry room still walking around. Not sure if they are about to die or didn’t eat the poison. But the 2 trails outside are completely gone!
