TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits provide fast-acting elimination of the queen and entire colony.
To attract and kill ants, simply place the pre-filled, ready-to-use liquid ant bait stations outdoors in areas where ants are observed and secure baits with the stakes provided. The weatherproof bait stations prevent the liquid bait from drying out, providing the ants with a continuous supply of food, day and night. Ants typically follow defined trails from the nest to food or water. Placing TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Baits close to these trails will improve control.

How Do Liquid Baits 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 is the only way to get rid of both the ants you see and the thousands you don’t.
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 year ants were swarming in Pompano Beach in September. I tried a spray 'perimeter' defense product. It kills ants but a few days later they just found another route into my home. I researched and found Terro Ant Baits for Outdoors. What a fantastic product! I followed the simple directions, placed the traps and watched the trails. In little over a week - they're all gone! I told some neighbors and they tried it and same result - they're all gone. Outstanding product. Nice job, Terro!

This ant bait is simply amazing. I put one trap down and ants were swarming withing a few minutes. Within a few hours the number of ants dwindled, and within about 1 day, they disappeared completely. I would recommend this to anyone that has ants. Ordered on-line for a larger choice and great savings.

This is hands down the best bait I have ever used. Be careful not to spill the bait when preparing it to be used. The best thing I found is to set it on a flat surface when puncturing the cup. Be careful when you pick it up it will spill. THIS WILL KILL THE ANTS I HAVE USED IT FOR TWO YEARS NOW.

Hint-Ants switch back and forth from sweet to protein baits, so buy BOTH. That way, when they stop taking this sweet bait, they're taking another. This bait cuts the population down almost immediately. They sure go for this bait quickly. Keep the baits level when placing or you'll spill the syrup.

It took about 2 weeks to see all ants disappear but they are all gone. I only used 4 of the traps so I have two left to use in a couple months from now. I also used the Liquid Ant Bait traps inside of the house. Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality.
