Terro Multi-Surface Liquid Ant Baits, 4-Pack

by Terro
TERRO® liquid bait is formulated to quickly attract ants and make it easy for them to transport the liquid bait back to the other 90% of the colony. As the ants harvest the TERRO® liquid, homeowners can clearly see where the ants are coming from and also the level of the infestation. Adult worker ants cannot digest solid food (bait). Their anatomy is designed to transport and digest liquids. Solid foods must be carried back to the colony for additional processing by the larvae. Liquid baiting exploits this unique physiology.

How Does Liquid Ant Killer Work?

Since this is a bait, initially you will see more ants – but don’t worry, this is a good thing. As ants forage for food, they are easily attracted to the sweet liquid. 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 each ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing them, but leaving enough time for the ants 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, allowing you to get rid of both the ants you see and the ants you don’t.
