Product Details

it works, liquid ant bait

TERRO - It Works!

Generations of consumers have come to know that the bright orange package stands for “Ant Control.”No matter what type of home pest control challenge you face, TERRO has the solution!

kill the ants you see and the ones you don't, liquid ant bait

Kills the Ants You See & Don't See

Foraging ants take the bait back to the nest. The communal nature of an ant colony allows the bait to be spread, killing the ants you see as well as the ones you don't see.

total population control, liquid ant bait

Total Population Control

Ant baits are designed to slowly spread throughout the entire colony to offer total control in just a few weeks.

attract ants, liquid ant baits

Attracts Ants

Since this is a bait, initially you will see more ants, before they disappear. But it's a good thing! The enticing sugary liquid can then spread through the entire colony.

how liquid ant bait works

How It Works

The active ingredient slowly interferes 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.

where to place liquid ant bait

Where to Place

Place near trails, along baseboards, in corners, on counters, under and behind appliances, on windowsills, and other locations where ants are numerous.

Use more liquid bait placements

The More Placements, the Better

Place additional bait stations anywhere they may enter your home. For best results, use multiple placements to ensure a sufficient supply for the ants.

remove attractants, liquid ant bait

Remove Other Attractants

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.

monitor liquid ant bait placements

Monitor Placements Regularly

Monitor placements regularly, but do not interfere with the pests or bait.

replace bait placements as needed

Replace Bait As Needed

Replace bait placements when the liquid is depleted or becomes dry.

prevent ants from returning, liquid ant bait

Prevent Ants from Returning

Once the colony is under control, keep placing baits to prevent new colonies from forming.

liquid ant bait attracts and kills all common household ants

Works on Common Household Ants

Liquid ant bait attracts and kills all common, sweet-eating household ants.

control ants indoors and outdoors, liquid ant baits

Control Ants Everywhere

Liquid ant baits can help you target infestations wherever they exist, whether indoors or out.

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, 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. For your convenience, Terro Liquid Ant Baits are easy to use and feature a new and improved snap-off tab design no scissors needed. To open the bait, hold the station vertically and twist the new and improved tab. Then place indoors on a flat surface near ant trails and other signs of ant activity. The more bait placements, the better. Be sure to leave the ant baits undisturbed while the ants are actively feeding on it.

    A:  When I used it as seemed as though they were dying inside my house and in the trap as opposed to taking it back to the colony.

    by|Apr 25, 2023

      A:  These work really well. The ants do take the posion back to colony. After a few days I do see ants dead inside, but I think that is to be expected since they are eating it, too. The dead anys do not stop the others drom taking the poison. I use these every year to deal with ants and I have been really happy with the results.

        A:  The ant will eat and take some bait back to the colony.

        by|May 4, 2023

          A:  These traps work like magic. The ants both eat the bait and take it back to their colony where the other ants (including the queen) eat it and also die. After 'discovering' the trap, you will probably see hoards of ants going to/from the traps as the pois

              A:  This product should be placed in areas that your pet cannot access. The ingredients of this product are water, sugar and borax. Borax is a naturally occurring mineral found in many common household items such as hand soaps and detergents. We recommend sharing these ingredients and any safety concerns with your vet.

                A:  Maybe, the instructions say to place bait in a place inaccessible to children or pets.

                          Simple and Effective.
                          I have had 3 baits left from my 1st use a couple years ago. A recent onslaught of ants in my clothing closet brought out the last 3 baits. The instructions say it could take 2 weeks. At 5 days, it looks like the colony made it to the party. Great product. No spraying toxic pesticides in house around cats.

                            Really works
                            I’ve been having an issue with ants in my finished basement for about a month now. Every morning I count between 10 and 20 ants and I vacuum them numerous times a day. Finally got sick of it and found these traps at Home Depot yesterday. I placed all six of them in various locations in the basement and within a couple hours one of the trap started drawing in the ants! By the next morning, the trap was full and I moved a few others close to it. Will continue to watch.

                              At 1st sign of ants, put a bait out. Was completely covered w ants that nigh *this is normal: it's bait.) After a week, no ants for 2 weeks. Heavy rain yesterday brought out more ants. This is normal. It can take 6+ weeks to get them all. Definitely works, you just need to be patient. Drought brings them in searching for water. Rain brings them in to find higher ground.

                              seems to work for Argentinian ants
                              Those little buggers are everywhere in San Diego right now and this is one of the few baits that seems so help. Not sure how long it will last but for now the seem to be attracted to it.

                                it works fast
                                Saw 6 ants in basement. Put Terro Liquid Ant bait out. Checked at night (when ants are most active) There were over 50 of them. Don't be alarmed by this. Ant Bait is supposed to do just that: it baits (attracts) ants. The ants find it and bring it back to the rest of the colony who will follow the ant trail to the bait. These are small, tiny sugar ants. *My bait yellowed because it was unopened in cabinet for 3 months. This is ok as long as it isn't hardened. Obvi still works great!

                                  Had hundreds(?) big and small ants coming onto kitchen counter in very very hot day 1. See other review picture. Gave medium review. Day 2. They were GONE. Just a couple of bodies left. Amazing. Day 3, 4. No returning ants. So happy.

                                    So far ants can't get enough
                                    The ants never noticed it so i put a drop of liquid on counter next to the trap and man did they love it. They invited all family, friends and even bigger badder ants wearing party hats. so far no deaths. I hate to kill them as it isn't their fault it's 100° outside. Now what? Pour a big bowl outside to lure them out?

                                      I’ve tried many ant baits and none ever seemed to work until I came across this! Within an hour ants were swarming around this liquid bait in my kitchen. Fingers crossed this actually kills them though but seems to be doing what it’s supposed to. Definitely attracts just hope it kills in the end!

                                        BUY IT. If you're looking for a product that actual does what it is supposed to do, you've found it. In our house we have a terrible infestation of these suckers. Bedroom, Bathroom, Kitchen, Front door area. My neighbors also have the same problem. first place I tried the bait was my bedroom. GONE! OVERNIGHT. That was over a week ago. since it was so affective I had to go out and buy some for myself. my neighbor had given me a portion of what he had left over. Yesterday I placed the bait in the bathroom, kitchen, front door area, let me tell you how pleased I am to see the ants coming out of the wood works for this stuff. I will add on to my review in the coming days to give a full review of my experience using terro liquid a t killer.
