How To Use The Terro Liquid Ant Bait

TERRO Liquid Ant Baits are the best home pest control option for killing sweet-eating ants, including little black ants and acrobat ants. TERRO Liquid Ant Baits work by attracting ants with a liquid food source and eliminating them with a slow-acting active ingredient. The liquid ant bait stations prevent the bait from drying out and provide the ants with a convenient place to feed.

TERRO Liquid Ant Bait is the most effective liquid ant killer because it contains Borax, which is toxic to both sweet-eating worker ants and the queens that protect their colonies. They’ll take the bait back to their nest, where it will kill off all of the ants in their colony over time.

Open the package and take out the bottles.

Open the package and take out the bottles. Make sure to keep your children and pets away from the Terro Liquid Ant Bait until you are ready to use it. Do not touch the bait directly with your hands, as this can prevent ants from feeding on it and will cause them to die outside of their colony. Do not eat or drink any of the bait because some people have experienced mild side effects such as a small rash or an upset stomach after ingesting this product, even though it was applied correctly according to instructions! Once you have finished applying all 3 bottles of liquid ant killer inside your home or office building (see next section), throw away any remaining packages in a garbage bin outside so that no one else is tempted by its sweet smell either!

Unscrew the tops off the bottles.

To open the bottle, you can use a variety of tools. You can use a screwdriver to unscrew the tops off of both bottles. You can also use a can opener to open them. If you do not have access to either tool, then you may want to try using your hands. The plastic will be harder than cardboard; however it should still be easy enough to tear apart by hand.

Place the bait stations in kitchen, pantry, or other locations where you are seeing ants.

Place the bait stations in kitchen, pantry, or other locations where you are seeing ants.

  • Make sure to keep the bait stations out of direct sunlight and other locations with excessive moisture.
  • Avoid placing the bait stations in areas where there is a lot of dust or debris as this can reduce the effectiveness of this product.

Each bottle contains 3 bait stations.

Each bottle contains 3 bait stations. Each station contains 1/2 teaspoon of liquid ant bait, which is about the equivalent to half a sesame seed or less. This is small enough that you can place it just about anywhere in your home without worrying about it being seen or messy, but large enough so that ants will be attracted to it.

Each bottle also comes with three disposable plastic spoon applicators for easy application of the bait to hard-to-reach areas around your house where the ants are entering from outside on a daily basis (such as windowsills). You do not need to use these spoons unless you feel uncomfortable applying this product with your fingers alone; however, if you do choose to use them they make application much easier as they allow you access into corners and crevices where liquid may otherwise drip out onto surfaces below if applied by hand only.

Warning! Bait is toxic if ingested by children or pets. Keep out of reach of children.

Use Terro Liquid Ant bait with care. It is toxic to children and pets if ingested. Do not eat or drink while using this product. Keep out of reach of children and pets, including birds, as it may be harmful to them if eaten or inhaled during use. Do not spray on an open flame or any other ignition source; do not smoke until area is thoroughly ventilated.

It’s important to NOT clean up any ant activity before or during baiting with TERRO Liquid Ant Baits for best results. Leave trails, residual liquid and dead ants as they are for ants to find the TERRO Liquid Ant Baits and feed on the liquid ant bait.

When baiting for ants, it’s important to leave trails and residual liquid for ants to find the bait. Leave dead ants as they are for the same reason. If you clean up any ant activity before or during baiting with TERRO Liquid Ant Baits, it can delay the time it takes for an ant colony to find the bait and feed on it.

After all of your preparations are complete and you’ve placed your baits all over your home or yard, let them sit overnight so that you can see if there are any visible results in the morning. After one week has passed and there hasn’t been any noticeable reduction in ant activity, use a Scouting Method to evaluate whether more baits need to be added in other areas of your home or yard where they may not have been seen before.

To clean up after baiting is complete, flush dead ants down the toilet and wipe surfaces with a wet paper towel.

Once you have baited your ant problem, clean up should be done after the ants are dead. The Terro Liquid Ant Bait traps and kills the entire colony because it is a slow acting bait. You will not see dead ants immediately, but over time they will start to disappear from their hiding places and eventually from your kitchen or bathroom surfaces. After about 3-5 days of feeding on the bait, all members of the colony including workers, queens and brood (eggs) will be killed.

If you find any dead ants before this time has elapsed, do not wipe them away with a wet paper towel or vacuum them up into your vacuum cleaner! This may pose health risks if other animals consume those dead bodies which may contain toxins harmful to humans or pets if ingested directly through eating or drinking contaminated water sources like puddles left behind by rain storms; standing water which can harbor infectious bacteria such as salmonella leading to food poisoning among people who come into contact with these environments.

It is easy to use ant bait

Ants have a strong sense of smell, so you can use this to your advantage. Place the ant bait stations near their trails or wherever you’ve seen ants. Check them daily and replace them if they get wet or go bad before the ants start taking the bait inside.

If you have pets or small children in your home, it is important that they do not come into contact with the Terro Liquid Ant Bait (even when empty). You may also want to keep it out of sight so that there’s no temptation for curious children or pets who might want to see what all these ants are up to.


TERRO Liquid Ant Baits are easy to use and best of all, they provide fast-acting control of the ants you see, as well as the ants you don’t see. After the worker ant has consumed enough bait, it will return to the nest where it will pass on the bait to other ants. This process may take up to two weeks before complete colony elimination is achieved. In some cases, more than one application may be necessary for complete control.
