Terro Indoor and Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits

Pin It
~This review was made possible by Terro~ 



It seems every spring we have an invasion of ants. My son loves watching their colonies busy at work out on our sidewalk and porch. But somehow they make their way into the kitchen. So this year when Terro Indoor and Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits came in the mail I knew I'd be prepared!


The Terro Indoor and Outdoor kit: 

These products are worth the purchase. In your Outdoor Kit you will receive 6 traps that you place strategically around the perimeter of your home. In the Indoor Kit you also receive 6 traps, you can place these in your kitchen area or anywhere you see the ants coming in.

Terro Outdoor Liquid Baits:

Best Used For: Attracting and killing all common household ants including Argentine ants, ghost ants, cornfield ants, pavement ants, acrobat ants, white footed ants, little black ants, odorous house ants and other sweet eating ants. For outdoor use, this highly effective outdoor ant bait comes in convenient weatherproof, ready-to-use ant bait stations

                                                                     
How Does It Work? The key to successfully controlling ants is to lure worker ants - those that you see out marching around in plain view - to the sweet liquid ant bait, which they will consume and carry back to feed to the rest of the colony. While the active ingredient in TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits will ultimately kill the worker ant, it interferes with the ant's digestive system and works slowly enough that the worker has time to get back and share the ant bait with the rest of the colony, including the queen. This slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough bait to the rest of the colony. This is the only way to get rid of both the ants you see and the thousands you don't. 

These traps are so easy to use! Simply pull the stakes out, push down the cup and turn 1/4 of a turn. Place the trap where you desire, then secure the bait trap with the stakes provided. It's that easy!

Terro Indoor Baits:


Best Used For: Killing all common household ants. TERRO® Ant Killer comes in easy-to-use, pre-filled liquid ant bait stations. 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.


How Does It Work? This is a bait product, so initially you're going to see more ants... lots more. Here's why - as ant foragers look for food, they are attracted to the sweet liquid ant bait. Once foraging worker ants find the liquid ant bait, they consume it and drop what is called a "trail pheromone" back to the nest that lets all the other worker ants know where a food supply has been found. This is why you will initially see more ants when using the liquid ant baits. While the active ingredient in the bait will ultimately kill the worker ant, it sneakily interferes with the ant's digestive system and works slowly enough that the worker has time to get back and share the ant bait with the rest of the colony, including the queen. This slow kill is needed to allow time for the foraging ants to make several trips to the bait and deliver enough bait to the rest of the colony. This is the only way to get rid of both the ants you see and the thousands you don't. The liquid ant bait station should remain as undisturbed as possible while the ants are actively feeding on it. Because this is a bait product, it is important to eliminate all other food sources in the area. This will ensure that the ants aren't tempted to eat anything but the (deadly) liquid ant bait. 

If you're having major or not so major problems with ants I definitley recommend the Indoor Liquid Ant Baits! So simple to use, just cut the tip and place where desired....it's that easy!
