To kill common household ants, simply place TERRO Liquid Ant Baits stations near indoor areas where ants are spotted. Ants enter the trap, consume the liquid ant bait and return to the nest where they pass on the bait to the rest of the colony. TERRO Liquid Ant Baits are specifically formulated to allow worker ants to consume the product and survive long enough to carry the liquid back to the nest and deliver a dose to the rest of the colony . The liquid ant bait stations prevent the bait from drying out and provide the ants with a continuous supply of liquid, day and night. Monitor the baits regularly for activity, but do not interfere with the ants or baits. Replace with additional baits when the first set is depleted. Depending on the size of the ant infestation, complete control may take up to two weeks.
Ants Don’t Know It’s Not Candy!

We used Grants Ant Stakes for years. In fact I “grew up” with Grant ant stakes in my parents home. But they don’t work where I live now. The ants simply ignore them. I don’t know whether Grants has changed the formula, or whether the ants in my locale are impervious to Grants, or whether all ants have learned to ‘rotate their shield frequencies’ in order to thwart the poison, but Grants just ain’t working. These Terro traps work. The ants are all over them. And then they die. However, there is one claim made by the manufacturer that has not held true (thus 4 of 5 stars); The claim is “… Ants enter the trap, consume the liquid ant bait, then return to the nest where they pass on the bait to the rest of the colony.” That’s not what happens here. Instead: 1) The ants file into the opening and many if not most die right in the trap, near the entrance. 2) All the ants in the area are then gone for a few weeks. 3) Somewhere during that time ALL THE DEAD ANT BODIES IN THE TRAP DISAPPEAR! 4) In a few weeks the ants are back again and we have to set down a fresh trap. So it seems as though not enough poisoned ants made it back home to actually kill off the colony.
It gets to the source for longer lasting results

Our community is riddled with ants and the hot summers drive them all indoors. Each year we get a bigger infestation than the last. I have tried everything to kill off the ants and nothing ever worked, even the high-end exterminator grade baits. They just come back with a vengeance! Traps didn’t work at all and gels would kill them off immediately, but the poison wouldn’t make it back to their source and I would end up with more ants the next day. While we still definitely have continued ant infestations, after 24-48 hours, these baits really do the trick. Ants are totally killed off until a new batch comes from wherever. I have 2 curious dogs and they never even go near them, so that makes me feel good about using these, too. My only issue is that sometimes the ants move the trap and the liquid falls out onto the floor making it super sticky. My exterminator taught me a cool trick – turn the trap over and cut the red portion off so the ants will crawl in without having any liquid leak out. Give it a try!
There is some kind of magic going on

I don’t often leave product feedback but in this case I felt compelled to do so. I placed all six bait traps around the kitchen and left the house. Returning an hour later, all three of the ant trails had zeroed in on one of the bait traps and were going from the trap back to one assumes the colony. It is very difficult to not want to get rid of all the ants but I ignored my impulse and left them alone. This morning every one of the ants was gone, even the dead ones that surrounded the bait trap. This product is incredible! I probably could have one set one bait trap and next time I have any ants I will try that approach.

I would give this 10 stars if I could. It saved me from calling an exterminator. Monday PM: Came home from work to find about 20 or 25 carpenter ants swarming my kitchen counter because I’d mistakenly left a small amount of sugar water (for hummingbird feeder) on the counter. I reined in my impulse to kill them all, ASAP, and instead put out some old Terro baits that had been sitting under the kitchen sink for probably a few years and been forgotten. They were unopened, but had leaked onto the cardboard packaging. I put 4 of them out anyway (way more than what was needed.). The ants began feeding from them very quickly and I left them alone overnight. (I did also see for the first time where the ants had come in, from 2 tiny holes they drilled through trim in a corner above the back kitchen door. Tuesday AM: Got up to still see ants around the baits, but fewer in number. Left them alone and went to work. Tuesday PM: No ants seen when I got home. What was even better was this.
Best Argentine ant control solution I’ve found
9 people found this helpful
No ant control strategy is going to be perfect, and I expect results may vary according to climate and species. For me, at least, these have been an effective tool in defending against Argentine ants in a dry, warm climate… much better than sprayed poisons, powders, etc. Deploying these is the only part that seems a bit tricky. You need to cut off a part of the plastic that inevitably may have traces of the poisoned bait, so it’s best to use a utility scissors you won’t use to cut food packaging, for example, or anything you might touch later. The cutting process is best done over a trash can to begin with, because that small piece of plastic will usually go flying when you snip it. Trap placement strategy may vary depending on your location and climate. Although the liquid bait does hold up very well in hot, dry climate, in my experience they haven’t done so well when exposed to direct rainfall. In general I have found it best to place traps within an inch of any existing ant trail where foot traffic or other activity won’t disturb, then wait 24-48 hours for the ants to empty the bait or disappear, whichever comes first. One trap per active trail seems to be sufficient.
Best Bait Station I’ve Used…but don’t let it leak
7 people found this helpful
I first got these from a Pest Control company that said it was really the only thing that would work. It was true, although since you are feeding the guys, you do get more, then activity dies down once they’ve taken it back to the nest. Its only bait station that seems to work for the little itty-bitty guys that terrorize the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Areas. …Don’t let the liquid get on the counter and dry though!! It turns into permanent epoxy-like “artwork”. …The package shows having the opening down and flat side up; the pest control guy just cut off the orange area and laid it on the flat side (opening at top). I tried both. I find that flat side down works better for me (let chance of mess) and the ants don’t care – they get equally enthusiastic once they discover it regardless of orientation.
