Ant Killer

Stop Spring Ant Invasions with TERRO Liquid Ant Baits {Review & Giveaway}

2:33 AM

Well, the last time I reviewed ant bait I wasn't sure if I would have an ant problem here in our new house. Last week I was sitting at the computer when a teeny, tiny and scurried across my desk. Oh bummer...I know what that means. Where there is one ant, there are more. As the week progressed, I began to see more and more. Thankfully though, they are not the huge carpenter ants that I had at my old house...those things are nasty!! The small ants can be just as annoying though and I am just as determined to get rid of them as ever. My greatest ant problem is in my kitchen and dining room. I found out just today that the ants are coming in around my sliding glass patio door so now that I know where they are coming in, I can start there. I have also had quite a few ants on my kitchen counter top around my bread basket and toaster. Crumbs...go figure. So, I am now on the war path and I am not playing games.
Right when I began to notice those tiny ants, I found out about TERRO Liquid Ant Baits and was immediately interested. My main concern is getting rid of the ants and at this point, I don't care HOW I get rid of them, I just want them gone (as does anyone with an ant infestation). Spring time is the prime time for ants to be coming around because they are waking up from a long winter's nap and are hungry. Food is the only thing on their minds and unfortunately, our homes make for great food sources for them. TERRO Liquid Ant Baits contain a key ingredient that is guaranteed to kill ants: Borax. The wonderful thing about Borax is that it is safe to use in your kitchen and other areas of your home (just keep it out of reach of children and pets).

TERRO® is the industry leader in ant control and has been a trusted brand for more than 90 years. Based in Lititz, PA, the company offers proven ant control products, including liquid ant baits, aerosol sprays and perimeter granules.

I was REALLY excited to be given the opportunity to review TERRO Liquid Ant Baits and they came at such a fantastic time!

So, for this review I was sent a box of TERRO Liquid Ant Baits - Indoor and TERRO Liquid Ant Baits - Outdoor. When they arrived, I hurriedly opened the boxes and began to read the super easy-to-understand instructions.
The Indoor Liquid Ant Baits are super easy to use...all you do is pull them apart and then cut the bottom side of the bait. This makes a small ramp for the ants to climb up into the container so they can retrieve the liquid. Once you have done that, you can place them in the desired locations.
I stuck them all over my kitchen and dining room (excuse the pictures though...I put the bait upside down for some silly reason...make sure the side with the label is facing up). Once you have placed your bait, watch the magic begin. You will notice the ants going in and out of the container but DON'T kill them...let them be. They are taking the poison back to the nest where it will kill the rest of the colony.
The outdoor TERRO Liquid Ant Baits are really easy to use as well and require very little tampering. All you do is remove the two plastic screws that are sticking out from under the plastic tub. DON'T REMOVE THE CONTAINER! Once the screws have been removed, press down on the white tub and turn it slightly. This will allow the liquid to go into the collection area underneath.
You are going to want to place these around the perimeter of your home, especially where you see ant nests or areas where the ants are entering your home. Once you have found a place to put the bait, simply use the screws to anchor the bait to the ground.
The way this bait works is the ants climb up the small ramps and drink the liquid. Then, they meander back to the colony where the food is shared with the rest of the "family" and they will then die. Very effective, if you ask me. :)
After placing my indoor Liquid Ant Baits by the sliding glass patio door, I woke up in the morning to this...hooray!! Now, the only problem is that my children want to kill the ants. So, I have to keep them away from the bait. Isn't this GREAT?!?!?
You can find TERRO Liquid Ant Baits at all leading hardware, home center, mass merchant, food and drug, farm and fleet, and independent garden center retailers nationwide. The outdoor ant bait retails for about $8.50/6 pack and the indoor bait retails for about $7.57/6 pack. Be sure to check out TERRO on Facebook, Twitter and on Pinterest as well.
So, when it comes to ant invasion control, I would definitely recommend TERRO Liquid Ant Baits! Since putting these stations out I have seen less ants than before and I KNOW Borax works to kill ants. I have used Borax in my homemade ant killer recipe for several years now and it is fantastic to know that this product exists! If you have an ant problem, please check out TERRO Liquid Ant Baits...you will be so glad that you did!

  1. I work in public relations for TERRO and wanted to thank you for your great feedback on TERRO's liquid ant bait products! I also wanted to point out that it's fine to use the ant baits around kids and pets. As you noted, the active ingredient is Borax, which is a natural mineral found in many consumer products, including eyewash. :)
