While ants have been known to ruin a picnic or two, an ant infestation can cause major headaches for homeowners as well. Liquid ant baits work by attracting foraging ants with an enticingly sweet liquid. Upon ingesting, the workers ants leaves a pheromone trail back to the colony to lead more ants back to the food source they’ve discovered. The borax in the bait kills the ants slowly, giving other ants in the colony plenty of time to find and ingest the bait.
Ants can be a problem anywhere – in the home, at work and everywhere in between. To kill common household ants, place TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits in areas where they attract foraging ants that take the bait back to the nest. As the bait circulates through the colony, it kills the ants you see and the ones you don’t. The new and improved snap-off tab makes the stations easy to use. Plus, the closed bait stations prevent the bait from drying out to provide the ants with a continuous supply of liquid, day and night. Note: complete control may take up to two weeks.
