Description

Product Description:

Terro Ant KillerTERRO® Ant Killer attracts and kills all common household ants. The liquid ant killer is specifically designed – using the active ingredient Borax – 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. Complete control may take up to two weeks. 

To use our best ant killer, simply apply the product directly from the bottle onto the provided cardboard squares and place near indoor areas where ants are spotted.

How Does It Work?

TERRO® Ant Killer is a bait product, so at first ants will come in large numbers, but they will soon disappear. This liquid ant killer is specifically formulated to allow worker ants to consume the product and survive long enough to carry the liquid ant killer back to the nest and deliver a dose to the rest of the colony. Baiting enables you to get rid of both the ants you see and the ants you don't.   

Leave our at-home ant killer undisturbed while the ants are actively feeding on it. Be sure 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 killer – indoors and out.

While the active ingredient in our indoor ant killer will ultimately kill the worker ant, it interferes with the ant's digestive system and works just slowly enough that the worker has time to get back and share the ant bait with the rest of the colony. 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.  

Directions for Use

Why Liquid over gel bait?

Tear the "PLACE TERRO® HERE" cardboard squares from the home ant killer packaging along the perforated lines and simply apply the liquid ant killer directly from the bottle onto the square. Small pieces of paper, cardboard or foil may also be substituted.

Place this household ant killer where ants are seen, such as the edges of sinks, tubs, window sills, under food cabinets, along floors and baseboards, and in corners. Do not skimp on bait placements; the more bait placements, the better.

The key to effectively eliminating the ant infestation is to monitor the placements and ensure there is always a fresh supply of TERRO® Ant Killer for the ants to feast on. Depending on the size of the ant invasion, complete control may take up to two weeks.

Resist the temptation to interfere when the ants come in droves — your patience will pay off as you watch your ant infestation dwindle and then disappear.  

Since invading ants usually have outdoor nesting sites, it often helps to put our best ant killer outside the home, close to where ants are found entering the structure. Ants typically follow defined trails from the nest to food or water, so placing the ant killer close to these trails will improve control.

    This product works as it said it would. By Lynn

    It worked exactly the way the label said it would!! I think it was important that the directions be followed the way it was described on the box. At this point, about 5 days after beginning the process I have gone from having a house full of ants to NONE!

    Amazing By MariaP95

    I was incredibly impressed with Terro. We struggled with ants in my childhood home and never had much success with poisons. We set the terro up in the locations suggested on the box, and within 48 hours the ant population was minimal, and completely eliminated within a week!

    Disappointed By Dick

    Purchased this product because we have been using the same bottle for many years but it ran out. We were very excited to find it, but found unlike the original which the small ants flocked to, the ants did not go any where near it no matter what we do or where we place it. Still have the very small ants after 3 weeks. Very disappointed.

    Hello,

    Thank you for providing this feedback! If the ants are not attracted to the liquid, they are more than likely in their breeding phase of life and looking for protein rather than sugar. In these cases, a contact killer such as the TERRO® Ant Dust or the TERRO® Ant Killer Spray works well to control the ants.

    All they can eat but they don't die. By Ant Man

    They are licking it up but I'm seeing no dead ants except for a couple that got trampled by the mob and drowned in it. Been a week now and they almost seem immune to it.

    Hello,

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! This product is designed to kill the ant slowly, allowing time for the ant to share the product with the rest of the colony. Depending on the size and number of colonies in the area, complete control may take up to two weeks. We recommend allowing more time for the desired results.

    No more By Kimmy

    We have ants every warm season and I got fed up. I purchased this at local hardware store and put it out. Within 5 minutes my sink area where the bait was placed..was swarming with ants. I had to put it out 2 more times that same day because they were diving in. Lol. Next morning...i had no ants. I love it! Our food is safe!

    Nope By Frustrated

    Two weeks later, ants are still crawling on my kitchen counter tops.

    Response From Zareba®
    Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

    Hello,

    We are sorry to hear the desired results were not seen! From this description, it sounds as if there is either a large colony or there are multiple colonies. In these cases, contact killers such as the TERRO® Outdoor Ant Killer Spray (Model T1700-6) can also be used to treat window sills, door openings and other areas where ants are suspected of entering the home.

    Terro# 1 ant killer By Lee

    I have tried all the brands out there. Terro is the best. If you have ants place some Terro out and within a day all the ants gone. Now I recommend Terro too everyone.

    Works but seems to be a design flaw with the package By Lizpuff

    This stuff works really well. I bought it for a colony of sugar ants that come out from under the runner between my carpet and tile. The only issue I have with the product is the design of the package. The ants in my home were very very tiny and didn't want to climb into the container. Several days went by with the ants ignoring the bait. I ended up pouring the liquid out onto a piece of foil on the floor. Once the liquid was poured out the ants swarmed it. I am not sure if it is a good thing or not but one whole container was gone after 1 night. This morning I got up and saw ant corpses all over my floor. There are still ants moving about but not as many. I think I might be slowly winning the war

    Ants

    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.

    More About Ants

    FAQs

    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.
