TERRO Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes

Long-term control of pesky sweet-eating ants is a piece of cake with TERRO Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes. This highly effective, unique liquid baiting technique kills the ants you see, and the ants you don’t. To use, simply place the pre-filled ant bait stakes into the ground near areas where ants have been observed. Then sit back and relax. Your work is complete.

How Liquid Ant Bait Works

When the stakes are first placed in the ground, initially you will see more ants because this is a bait product. But don’t worry – this is a good thing! Why? As ants forage for food, they are easily attracted to the sweet, sugary liquid inside the bait stations. After finding the bait, worker ants consume it and leave behind a pheromone trail leading back to the colony. This trail lets other worker ants know where the newly discovered food supply is. This is why you will see more ants in the beginning.

Meanwhile, the active ingredient, Borax, is slowly interfering with the ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing it, but leaving enough time for the ant to go back and share the dose with the rest of the colony. This slow kill is necessary so that foraging ants can make several trips to the bait. The communal nature of an ant colony allows the bait to be spread to hundreds, if not thousands, of individual ants.

How to Use

TERRO Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes come pre-filled and ready-to-use. Simply place the stakes in outdoor areas where you see traces of ants. Apply the stakes near the perimeter of your home, especially near entrances where you think they may be getting inside. To use, break off the activation tab and place in the ground. No tools are needed to push the stake in, just your hand.

In addition, the see-through window enables you to monitor the bait level so you know when it’s time to be replaced. When bait is empty, dispose stakes in the garbage. For your convenience, the stakes are weatherproof, offering protection in any condition. The more bait placements, the better.
