this product does not work
I bought these bait stations recently, of course by looking at all the positive reviews it had, but greatly disappointed with the outcome.
I placed these bait stations near ant paths at several locations for more than a week now but still I continue to see the ants passing it by and not even getting close by these baits.

Thank you for this feedback. If the ants were not interested in the bait, they may not be looking for sweet based foods?

The ants attacked this like it was a free
meal !!!!!!! Trying to open each one by twisting the tab was not easy to do at all. The only downfall was that some type of animal, (maybe a squirrel) tore my spikes right out of the ground and ripped the green stake and the clear plastic bait holder to shreds !!!

I put the ant bait in the zucchini plant pot a few days ago but I still see a few ants...maybe not as many...couldn't open the flower to check but saw a couple of ants on flower and stem so we shall see.

These traps work. I needed to find a way of avoiding lots of ant killing chemicals spread around our yard. Our front lawn began to look like one big ant hill. I placed 4 boxes, 32 traps around the lawn and the ants are drawn to them. It is a constant battle but these traps are a great alternative to using lots of chemical killers.

We bought the stakes and the traps for inside. Within a day the ghost ants were gone. Great, great product. Recommend them to our daughter who also had great success.
Within hours of e had a stream of ants on the ledge above the stake. Now nothing.
These ant stakes work okay I put two along the foundation on the kitchen side and two along the foundation on my master bathroom side, there doesn't seem to be anymore ants around my kitchen sink any more but I have seen a few around my bathroom sink just not as bad as it was. I'm going to give it another week to see is they disappear if not maybe get some spray to go with them. They are rear easy to put out and just break off a tab and your done.
Terro Ant Bait Stakes, Home Depot SKU number: 204661245, Suppled by the Home Depot SEEDs program.
The Terro ant bait Stakes are a new version of their proven ant bait system. The “stake’ version is an new plastic housing with a stake or spike molded into the base for supporting the container of liquid ant bait. The bait container housing is ~2 inches high by ~1.7 inches wide, with a ~2.3 inch long spike on the bottom for planting in the ground around where the ants are residing. There is a window in the side of the housing to allow for checking the level of the liquid bait. There is a simple twist off bait opening, that is removed when placing the bait. This provide a opening for the ants to access the bait. The opening is toward the top end of the bait housing, thus placing it higher from the base, and making it less likely that rain water will wash into the bait and flush it away. The housing seems to be quite sturdy. I think this new design would also be harder for pets, or small animals to get into
I have used Terro Ant baits before, and they work quite well for ants that like sweet based foods. Terro products come in a verity of product package formats. From a just a small vial of the liquid bait, to flat clear bait containers, to larger, outside containers.
This new bait trap design I think is better and easier to use than their older outside design. It also seems simpler, and at the same time sturdier.
As to how well they perform, I my experience, they work quite well for the type of ants that they are designed to attract, and eliminate.
I would recommend them to anyone with a ant problem.
