Ant invasions can be more than just a mere nuisance; they can disrupt the sanctity of a household. While many products promise to tackle this menace, few deliver tangible results. As a dedicated member of the Repellent Guide team, I decided to test TERRO Liquid Ant Baits firsthand, going beyond just the product claims.

Product Description

TERRO Liquid Ant Baits are a unique concoction designed to combat common household ants. The strategy is simple: position these baits in areas frequented by ants. The baits lure the ants with their sugary content, compelling them to carry the bait back to the nest. But here's the twist: the bait contains Borax, which methodically disrupts the ants' digestive system. This ensures the ants you see (and the countless ones you don't) are eliminated.

Personal Experience

1. Initial Setup:
Upon receiving the product, the first thing that stood out was the user-friendly design of the bait stations. Following the clear instructions, I strategically placed them in my kitchen and living room - two areas where I'd been waging my battle against the ants.

2. Ant Attraction:
True to the product's claims, the initial days saw a marked increase in ant activity around the bait stations. I remember sipping my coffee one morning, watching a miniature highway of ants marching to and from the bait. It was oddly mesmerizing, knowing they were inadvertently signing their colony's demise.

3. Efficacy:
Over the course of a week, I began to see a gradual decline in the ant parade. By day 10, the once bustling ant highway had turned into a seldom-trodden path. My relief was palpable.

4. Packaging and Handling:
The compact nature of the bait stations allowed for discreet placement. However, during setup, I did have a minor spill. I'd recommend handling with care, as the liquid is quite adhesive.

Feedback from the Repellent Guide Team

Our team members shared a range of experiences:

  • Quick Results: Most team members echoed my sentiments on the product's speed. Sarah, from the team, humorously shared how she felt like an "ant overlord", watching the ants flock to the bait only to see their numbers dwindle rapidly in the following days.

  • Ease of Use: Tim, another colleague, appreciated the fuss-free setup. However, he did suggest using gloves or washing hands thoroughly post handling, just as an added precaution.

  • Effectiveness: The consensus was clear: TERRO baits are effective. Jess, who lives in a particularly ant-prone area, mentioned that this was the first time she felt like he was gaining the upper hand in his long-standing battle against ants.

  • Comparison with Other Brands: Craig had previously tried various brands, including Raid. While those seemed promising initially, they didn't offer lasting results. He was particularly impressed with how TERRO baits tackled not just the symptom (visible ants) but the root (the colony) of the problem.


Based on both personal experience and feedback from the team, TERRO Liquid Ant Baits come highly recommended. They are more than just a temporary fix; they provide a comprehensive solution to ant infestations. The initial surge in ant activity might be unnerving for some, but understanding the product's mode of action offers reassurance. For anyone looking for an effective ant solution, this product is worth considering. Always ensure the baits are placed out of reach of children and pets, and handle with care to prevent spills.
