Review Ratebest ant killer around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have used terro for years. its the best thing since sliced bread. you do have to be patient. use it and wait about 4 days. if you see more then use more terro and they will eat it and take it back to their colonies and eventually all the ants will be gone. just give it a try. I did and I love it. I would never use anything else.
Review RateAmazing Product that gets the job done!
Terro is simply amazing! Won't use anything else. Thanks for such a great and easy to use product. I've introduced a few friends to your product and they are also grateful!
Review RateWas real skeptical about buying this item...
It seems all I have been doing is feeding these little black kitchen ants for over a month now and there are no signs of them slowing down. I've used up a quarter of the bottle so far and the results are nothing. I get about the same amount of ants everyday until the clean their plates and then off they go until I fill their buffet again. Not real pleased with this stuff at all.Response From Zareba®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. We're sorry that ants are still treating your home like and all-you-can-eat-buffet! It sounds like you may have multiple colonies. Consider treating the outside of your home using products like TERRO® Perimeter Ant Bait Plus.

Review Ratewhen to stop using terro
i have what are called thief ants, i found out they love butter! i put a little dab of butter on aluminum foil than the terro liquid around it.....the ants are loving it. it's been about 2 weeks, the numbers are dwindling, for now.. my question is....when do you stop using terro....when you don't see ants anymore or would that be chancing it?Response From Zareba®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
We recommend removing baits when you know longer see them running around stealing anymore butter. If you begin to see a few after that, you can either eliminate them with a contact killer, such as TERRO® Outdoor Ant Killer Spray, or place your baits back down again. If you have anymore questions, we are always happy to help at 800-800-1819 x 458
Review RateWorks very well
I have used this product for years and it has always been great. This time the problem was more persistent and it included some small black ants. Terro sent me a fresh bottle of the food and it finally worked after about two months. I always place a few drops on a piece of aluminum foil. They are attracted to anything shiny. Thanks for your help.
I've used Terro for years and highly recommend it for ants.
Review RateMy go-to ant killer...no home should be without it
No home should be without Terro Ant Killer! I've been using it for 6 years now, & I won't use anything else. Before using Terro, I used to use Raid ant spray & Combat ant baits, but they didn't work as well as Terro does, b/c the Combat baits didn't work period & the Raid spray only killed the ants I could see & not the ones I couldn't see. Terro is better than Raid & Combat b/c it's liquid Borax, so it's sticky & sweet, which ants are attracted to. If patience isn't a virtue of yours, then Terro probably isn't for you b/c it's a slow-kill formula; the scavenger ants take it back to the colony and pass it on the queen ant, who passes it on to the rest of the colony, so it'll take some time for the formula to wipe out the colony depending on its size.
Review RateWhy different this time
Used in the past worked great this time no, ants still eating this and getting inside the package this has been a few weeks used two packages, small black ants move quick.Response From Zareba®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
If you find that the ants are not interested in the ant bait, it may be that the ants are not interested in sweet treats at the moment. We recommend adding a contact killer, like TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer, to your ant control plan. For any questions feel free to contact our Customer Relations Team at 800-800-1819 x 458
Review RateWorks great!
I swear by the Terro Ant baits! Nothing works better. Give it a few days and all the ants will disappear!
No, this product did not do the trick. It left big sticky globs wherever we put it and did not stop the ants from invading our home.Response From Zareba®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback and the time taken to provide it! These comments have been shared with our Product Managers. This bait will only attract those ants that are interested in sweet foods.

- All About
There are more than 10,000 known species of ants living throughout the world. Like other insects, they have six legs; each with three joints. Ants have large heads with compound eyes, elbowed antennae and powerful jaws. Ants are social insects that live in structured nest communities throughout the world. The species of ant determines whether they live underground, in mounds built at ground level, in wood structures or in plants or trees.
Why are ants always invading my kitchen, bathroom and laundry areas?
Ants are attracted to food, water and shelter. Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms provide at least two of these conditions, making it an ideal haven for ants to congregate.
What’s the difference between liquid and gel ant baits?
It’s a little known fact that adult worker ants cannot digest solid food (bait). Their anatomy is designed for transporting and digesting liquids only. Solid foods must be carried back to the colony for additional processing by the larvae stage. Liquid baits exploit this unique physiology by making it easy for ants to transport the liquid bait back to the rest of the colony, including the queen, larvae and other workers.
I just placed TERRO Ant Killer in my kitchen and it’s attracting more ants, not killing them! What’s going on?
You have nothing to worry about! Initially, you will see more ants. As ant foragers look for food, they are attracted to the sweet liquid in the bait which they consume and carry back to feed to the rest of the colony. On the way back to the nest, the ants drop what it called a ‘trail pheromone’, letting the other ants know where the tasty food supply is. In turn, these ants follow the trail to the bait which explains why you initially see more ants.
The active ingredient in the bait interferes with the ants' digestive systems, eventually killing the ants within 24-48 hours after consumption. This slow kill gives the worker ants enough to get back and share the bait with the colony. Baiting is the only way to successfully wipe out the ants you see and the thousands you don’t.
