Terro Liquid Ant Baits

6,409 reviews with a 4.5-star rating 

Price: $13.44

“I don’t write reviews but this product worked so well I had to share. I had ants coming out of my walls and floor boards. I had an exterminator come twice to spray. Didn’t work at all. It’s a clean house so I couldn’t figure out why I kept seeing them in random spots and then I found one of their holes. That’s when I woke up to a nightmare surrounding my bait!” 

-Reviewer from Amazon

This product is a liquid bait used to kill ants in popular hotspots. It comes in a plastic mechanism known as a bait station that can be placed along baseboards, under appliances and furniture, on windowsills, or wherever your ants frequent.

The ants are attracted to the sugary-sweet bait, but the borax (boric acid) will slowly kill the ant by attacking the digestive system. Additionally, it also allows the ants to take the bait back to the colony, which quickly infects the rest of the colony. 

To use the bait:

  1. Twist or cut off the cap of the bait station without spilling the bait
  2. Place the bait with the label facing up along places where ants frequent
  3. Monitor the bait station for activity and leave it undisturbed
  4. Replace the bait station every 2 weeks or when the bait is completely gone

You also use this product for regular inspection and maintenance after the ant infestation is controlled. Some users did report issues with the design of the twist-off cap. If you do find you’re having issues, use scissors to cut off the cap, or use Terro’s multi-surface liquid bait. 

Terro Multi Surface Liquid Ant Bait with Adhesive Strips

948 reviews with a 4.1-star rating

Price: $6.47

“Let me tell you the ants were marching one by one hurrah hurrah, the ants were marching two by two hurrah hurrah, the ants were marching straight inside to take up the poison and make them all die, and I haven’t seen them since, anywhere, on the walls. Doom doom doom doom.”

-Reviewer from Amazon

This product comes with 4 discrete baits that have a 2-color design that allows the baits to blend into your home’s decor. The Multi Surface baits come with the same sugary-sweet formula that’s poisoned with borax. Worker ants will take the bait back to the colony, and will slowly kill off the rest of the ants. To use this product:

  1. Open the plastic tab on the bait station
  2. Place along places where ants frequent, and use the adhesive strips to stick along objects
  3. Monitor the bait station for activity and leave it undisturbed

This product is perfect if you’re unsure about your infestation’s entry points, but need to stop ants in their tracks.

We had a HUGE line of them going to the trap! This is an awesome product that truly does work. We put them all around the outside perimeter of our home and didn’t see an ant inside for months!”

Terro’s Super Fly Magnet Fly Trap    

59 reviews with a 3.3-star rating

“I’ve tried tons of products and this is the one that works best. The traps with liquid get a ton of flies, but they smell so bad we couldn’t be in the backyard. This product has no odor and caught TONS of flies. It still worked even after sitting out for multiple days and being in the rain. We have chickens and that means flies in the summer so this product is a must for our family.”
