Can Work Very Fast

It may take a couple of weeks for the entire colony to be poisoned but sometimes it happens much quicker.  Here is one of the many testimonies of ants being eradicated, "Works very well and took care of my carpenter ant problem.  I used 3 of the 6 in the pack to kill a horde of ants and a queen that set up behind the dishwasher.  Ants were totally gone by day 3 and have not returned in over 2 days."

Also Can Work Very Slow

You may need to have patience when waiting for the whole colony to die.  The ants need to take the food back to their colony and it may takes weeks depending on how many ants that you have.  Here is one comment on how long it took to get rid of the customer's ants, "It does take days, and for me I left these out for weeks...Highly recommended, but patience is a virtue."

Sticker In Bad Place

The manufacturer put a sticker on the top of the bait which makes it hard to see when the bait is empty and needs replaced.  Here a customers comments about the placement of the sticker, "The only minor thing I do not like with this indoor version is that the manufacturer put their sticker on the top of the bait, practically where you cannot see the inside. I prefer to be able to see the inside to know when the action stops, so to know when to take the bait away."

Common Questions

Here are some top questions that I found for people considering buying TERRO T300 Liquid Ant Baits.

  • chevron-circle-right
    I have a baby in the house and I would like to use this product to kill ants in my house. Any precautions you suggest before I use this product?  Yes, do not let your baby near the bait trap no matter what.
  • chevron-circle-right
    When will the ants stop gathering around the trap and go HOME? I started out with a column of ants and now I have the entire colony hanging out! The ants normally will form a line from their nest and enter the trap. Soon, a line of ants should be going back to the nest and a line coming to the trap.  Within a couple of weeks you should not have any ants, as the whole colony will be killed.
  • chevron-circle-right
    When the bait is empty, should I put more? Or just wait for the ants to die down? I have to put the bait close to my bed. If there are still ants in the area then we would recommend placing out a new bait station.
