Passed High School Physics: The old TERRO Liquid Ant Bait formula worked well, but as everyone is
pointing out the new formula doesn't work at all and dries out in three
days or less. I have spent over $3,000 on TERRO products and assure you
they don't work at all. I was listening on NPR and they've are saying
there are two super-colonies of ants in the United States.
These super-colonies are all genetically the same and it looks like TERRO
products don't kill them anymore. I've called TERRO help line for
assistance on three times and each time was time by TERRO customer service
there products are ineffective against the super-colonies of ants.
Not sure what to do. Anyone have suggestions?
Iluvmyboxerdogs: If the ants carry the bait back to the nest, why are all the traps full of
dead ants and I still have an ant problem? I have been through no less than
12 traps, and they just fill up.
Prairie Grave: When I first moved in here(mobile home)10 years ago, I used this product
yearly with incredible results. Since about 2010, it still attracts them
like before but it dries out so fast that the ants are walking on top of
it, and confused following their fellow ants' trails. BAD BAD BAD waste of
your money; I haven't tried the 'new' ideas put out by the company but I
was disheartened at Lowe's when I went to buy the tried and true Terro
Liquid and Lo and Behold I saw various 'bait trap' products from them.
Must be avoided I thought to myself; the old Terro Liquid is something you
have to monitor but it was reliable, absolutely. In order to leap on to
the many 'try me, all I need is a whole many try mes to gain $ to get rich
without truth', it's happened once again to another group of consumers that
valued the real Terro Liquid product formula...which didn't dry out into a
waste of funds and faith within about 2-3 hours IF IT LASTS THAT LONG. I
started telling myself that they must be gnawing away at the mound and etc.
but no, unless you continue to drop some more as well to keep the liquid
present, it will not work. The bottle is minute in oz. and that used to be
fine...the COMPANY DOESN'T GIVE A RIP IF WE WASTE MONEY ON THEIR
REPUTATION...THAT'S BECOMING SO COMMON AND DISTURBING...I HAVE NO REASON TO
LIE ABOUT MY FAITH IN THIS PRODUCT AND THE TOTAL DECLINE IN IT. The video
announcer is true in his boast about 'Your all familiar with our 1 OZ.
bottles of ant poison' (which by the way is still the same price as when it
didn't dry out), and he is promoting my attention towards something that
does work? Why? I actually got in an argument with my mom about this
Terro Liquid recently (she's 80)because she knows it used to hold it's own
liquified until it did it's duty. Not uncommon that a reputable company
drops the ball on their public to start selling what I call 'quicky baits,
plastic nonsense', like I know you all as consumers have encountered with
the well knowns like HOT-SHOT, RAID, and really ALL THE MICE BAIT
companies, AND YOU KNOW YOU WASTED YOUR MONEY ON THOSE SILLY BAIT HOUSES,
because I KNOW I have as well. So long, sad farewell good ol' Terro
Liquid. BTW, you owe me the cost of 3 purchases of this dinosaur at $6-8
because of my family's faith in your ant liquid from the old DAYS!! YOU
TUBERS !!!! They get 7$ everytime that a faithful consumer pays for a
bottle...that can buy alot of plastic nonsense...I guess the real stuff is
too $ to market?? FMe, what are my children to do in a disaster of a
world when EVENTUALLY ALL THE DECENT COMPANIES BECOME A CRIME OF GREED SO
THEY CAN COMPETE WITH THEIR OWN GREEDINESS AMONGST ONE ANOTHER??? Short
story, Terro is already playing people like the rest. Don't buy that oz.
of liquid nonsense...........please read and hear like it is.
Charles Tapia: Hello.Can I scotch tape the unit horizontally to the kitchen ceiling ? Will
there be enough gap for ants to crawl in and eat ? Ants are coming from
behind the mounted kitchen shelf and the wall.Then they crawl down to
kitchen desk which is directly connected to that wall.I've never seen one
on the floor so I don't think it will be effective if I put the unit on the
floor.If they can find food/grease on the desk then they will not crawl
down to floor to eat TERRA, correct ? Thanks.
rickernv: Should be re-labeled Ant Food, not Ant Killer! Had used my own borax/sugar
recipe and had reduced the ant population considerably but couldn't seem to
get the last few dozen ants. Thought I would try this product as it seemed
to get generally good reviews. Within a few days the ant population seemed
to increase and now, after using this product for nearly 6 weeks, I have
10x as many ants as I had while using the home remedy. Off to the store to
return this product and probably back to the home recipe.
R Reddington: For some reason, the terro isnt working in my house. I used to have ants in
both my kitchen and 2 bathrooms and across the corners of my hallway. Then
i bought terro and placed them in the bathroom because that is where i saw
most of the ants. Then within 2 days, i had no ants in my kitchen or
hallways, which was good. They all seemed to focus on the bathrooms. But
now its been like 1 month and they still keep coming. Am i doing something
wrong ? Also, i the ants have been coming in small groups UNTIL last night
where i noticed there was a whole army of them. It was full near the bait.
I'd say maybe about 100 or so. Is the bait going to work now ? Or what ?
Any advice ? Because i seriously cant take them anymore !
wickedout2010: This stuff works amazingly! Thanks Terro!
webrik33: Your products are awesome! I use them inside and outside. Please tell LOWES
in Bryant AR to start carrying your outdoor traps again!
michaelbzr: I am a first time user and found that the ants loved the liquid, which I
placed in the cap of a medicine bottle, so much that eventually the
enormous breeder ants came to the kitchen and were being fed by the smaller
ants. The key is not to be freaked out by all the ants which appear over a
short period of time. I haven't seen another ant in the house. I have also
set up bait outside the house and can watch the ants follow the trail to
Harate San: I've used the plastic traps to kill a colony invading through a window sill
and also use them as defenses at doorway entrances to the home. Incredible
AAA DJ: We had a major problem with these little black ants that were living behind
our electrical outlets in our home. Within 5 minutes of putting just one of
these traps near the outlet hundreds of them emerged and sucked up the
bait, my wall was literally swarming with them. The next day they were all
DEAD !!! I highly recommend this product :)
Bat K: this will only kill the worker ants on spot. in order to get rid of ants,
aim for the queen. once the queen is dead the rest will just die with it.
Mike Davis: Amazing product. Always recommend. I've used this when I was in the east
coast USA with Argentina ants and boy did it control the ants. One thing I
found most difficult about the product is, how tempting it is not to kill
the ants myself!
vanessa aguayo: Thank you. I couldn't open the little trap thing. You saved me:)
Mike Dunham: Since I applied this Terro stuff 4 days ago the ants have grown stronger. I
have more ants now than ever. Hopefully this stuff will work even though it
appears to be having the opposite effect.
MyJt7: I bought combat source kill max ant baits....and the ants just ignored it.
So I researched what works and came across Terro...ordered some, and wow
does it work great. You can see it work fast.
Al Schmitt: make your own. ±5% borax. [i bought a few ounces in a little jar at the
drugstore. ±$3 the borax will last me for many years] ±40% honey [or
sugar] the rest warm water. mix & shake, to dissolve the white
powder. i use a small plastic squeeze bottle. put out only a few
drops where they're walking, & replenish it when it's getting low.
they eat it & carry some back to the nest. everybody's dead within ±3
jkready111: One mean product it is. Absolutely destroyed a colony that once lived under
my kitchen counter top.
Jason Towne: Need some tips, I had two baits set out in the kitchen, it's been ant
genocide in my kitchen but there seems to be no end to the ants. It's been
about a week and a half, I have no clue where there coming from except they
look like like they live in the countertop. I gave in and killed the mass
throng yesterday. I'll put out two more traps. Some tips would be nice.
Courtney: I've never had an ant problem before, so I was surprised when I saw so many
in my kitchen. I've never heard of Terro before, and when I looked online
for the best ant killers, Terro was all over the internet. I just got the
plastic trays today, and it didn't take long at all for the ants to find
it. I knew I had a lot of ants, but I could not believe the huge line of
ants swarming to the bait. Not only does this stuff start working fast, but
you also get to see where they're coming from. Hopefully in a few days
they'll all be gone
Dee killa: i have three of them in my house right now. The small ants don't eat it.
The crawl in the traps and get stuck. I even poured it out in an aluminum
pan on drops. some come some don't but it doesn't seem to have colony
Don Jenkins: I purchased and started using the T100 1 oz. bottle 19days ago, with 10
stations baited, and they just keep eating it, I keep refilling when empty.
They seem to taper off in quantity then 3 days later another surge. They
keep eating but they haven't stopped coming back, any comments would be
helpful. When will the process be complete?
Jerod Overfield: I have dogs in my house is this poisonous to dogs? Is 1 of the reason I
don't buy at traps because of the dogs ate them in the pass and had to take
them to the vet to get the stomach pop.
hiram partible: So after several days and you dont see anymore ants, where did they all go?
Are they dead?
DHeart335: I have 2 species of small ants in my kitchen here on the eastern shore of
MD. They are driving me crazy! I buy cereal and, BOOM, they get into the
bag and are all over the cereal and they are all over my counter tops. I
will follow this guys directions with Terro and see what happens. Will
post back after a few months and let u know how it worked out.
Trey Matt: I didn't know there were different types of ant bait - protein vs sugar. I
had bought the Raid protein baits and the ants just passed it by. I set up
one of these Terror liquid baits and the ants swarmed to it.
Dosflamingos: Just bought the liquid bait, we will see how it goes...
Bobby Williams: Are the ants supposed to drown in it?
Deathless2288: This stuff works very well, I recommend it
Kathryn Myers: Is this safe to use with pets? I have a cat.
OZOBIEUSA1: Good video! I just watched another video on the same topic,and the guy
never mentioned what to do with the stakes. He said to throw them aside for
Are the outdoor traps pet friendly if you use them in the house??
So far I haven't seen much ant activity in my house, however I notice them
in the porch area outside. I have a brick style porch. I was using the
indoor traps prior to watching your video. I was placing them outside on
the porch, and I've avoided rain. I also noticed a trail of dead ants
outside, which I hope was a good sign? I was unaware of the outside traps
until now. But I was curious if i could put one inside my house, by the
front door without harming the dog and cat?? The trap appears pretty
protected by the looks of your video. I'm just looking for a good product.
snowkap69: if the liquid comes out of the liquid bait trap when i set it down what
should i do? the ants are just gathering under it but by the liquid.
Winnie Wang: I saw this video yesterday and go to lowes buy one. I put the gel on the
table when i got home, oooooo, it's really work. I didn't see a lot ants at
home before, sometime one or two. But after i put this thing, wow, a lot
ants came out. a lot , a lot, i never saw before at home. Thanks for share
Jerry Scotti: does this product work on carpenter ant?
forkyou beach: the bottle liquid cost less... but has more liquid than the stations...that
Ignatius Grippa: Tried the liquid bait. Killed tons of ants in first 3 days. A bunch
remained but mostly avoided the bait. Put out new traps but no interest.
Had a new surge 2 weeks later. Same pattern.
aznboi1214: some good crap! hot shot doesnt come close
sushilander: biggest prob areas: 2 b-rooms (shower, around toilet, sink & even ceiling).
took 2-3 mos and a bunch of "rounds" to kill them all (ea round, 100's
would "feed" at liquid, then after 1 week disappear, only to re-appear
within another week. i think they were takin it "home", killed a bunch, but
so many that colony recovered. little by little i cut numbers until last
ones died. either that or multiple colonies. don't use too much
liquid...they won't eat it after it dries...so you just wasted it.
vinylsoup: I think this stuff is just ant food, the more you put the more ants you
have....they love it
robo mantis: Any baits that work of carpenter ants?
kirbyman1kanden7pf: superb product.
eliluong: i love this liquid ant bait. i used to use some of this combat liquid gel
that comes in a little syringe, but i couldn't find it in any store again.
so i found these. i just put two of them out, i hope they die soon so they
stop biting my toes in my room when i'm trying to study >:(
ANeonTiger: @thephilwells ROFL
orlock20: Lowe's sells it, well they sell out of it. I went to get some and the store
was out, but the space for the competitors was completely full. So not only
do the local ants love this stuff, so does the local consumers.
Phil Wells: Antfghanistan?
randburk: I used Raid ant bait. The ants multiplied - probably because they loved
eating the Raid crap.... CRAP is right ... RAID sucks ! THEN, I got some
Terro, put it out, went out of town for two days, and when I came back....
NO ANTS !!!! THIS STUFF IS GREAT !!!!!!!!!!!
Victoria Ong: I currently have an ant problem and I found out that it was from the
uplifted carpet and floor in my apartment near the screen door to the
patio. Anyways, I vacuumed around the area first and then put the liquid
bait right by the ants. They didn't see interested in it, so I poured a
little bit of the stuff into the crevice between the carpet and wall, and
like 5 minutes later, a colony has arrived! I hope it wasn't a stupid idea
to lure them that way.
Nippelwulf: @RandomConcepts Wow, that sounds like quite a large colony. I would just
get the bottle and make lots of little stations around where they come in.
Empty your trash often too, decaying food attracts them (especially snack
foods and sweets).
hauntedscarecrowmurd: I'm going to miss this daily aunt war...i was squirting them with lysol
cleaner with bleach but only when I caught them in the open on kitchen or
bathoom floor...(they loved empty soda cans in my trash...now I rinse cans
out before tossing)
