TERRO baits are known as the best ant traps for sugar ants. These baits come in small, handy containers so you can use them indoors.
Similar to many other pesticides for ants fighting, TERRO Ant Bait has a delayed effect. Its poisonous element is called borax, and this is what makes ants feed on it. Borax is a natural mineral element, the product of seasonal drying of salt lakes.
Poisoned ants return to their nests and infect their mates, which makes it easy to control a large number of pests. The bait is sweet-tasting, so it is mostly used for Pharaoh ants. Usually, it takes up to 3 days to wipe out the whole colony.
How to Use
TERRO® Liquid Ant Baits are very easy to use. Before placing the bait stations, be sure to remove other sources of food, such as crumbs, sugar, and grease spots to prevent attracting ants elsewhere. Do not place bait where you’ve already sprayed insecticides, as the pests may avoid the bait stations.
- Hold the bait station firmly with bait pack tab facing up. Break off the tab being careful not to spill the bait.
- Place the bait station label side up on a flat surface near signs of ants. Place additional bait stations anywhere they may enter your home. For best results, use all six bait stations to ensure a sufficient supply for the ants.
- Monitor placements regularly, but do not interfere with the pests or bait stations. Replace when bait is depleted. Complete control may take up to two weeks.
- Once ants are controlled, replace the baits every 3 months to keep them from returning.
Use all 6 baits for best results to ensure ants receive an ample supply.
