Unfortunately, it's inevitable with little boys who spill and drop everything they touch. So far I'd like to say we've been lucky over the years but then, I agreed to review another awesome product from one of my favorite brands Terro and that changed. It's almost as if the ants knew I needed a sacrifice to put the products to the test.
As luck would have it, I was sent over the TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes and TERRO® Indoor Liquid Ant Baits to review and the ants started to come out of the woodwork, literally. I know that with the weather warming up and Kevin doing a lot of landscaping outside, we were bound to see some sooner or later. But the ants literally seems to volunteer their lives in honor of testing the two products.
The TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes were absolutely perfect for when Kevin came across the ant mounds in the yard. Pre-filled with a sweet liquid ant bait. Placing them near the mounds and other areas helps prevent the ants from even making their way into the house. However, if they do (and they did) end up inside, TERRO® Indoor Liquid Ant Baits are a perfect solution.
Placing the station right where we started to see a few scattered ants, we were initially really freaked out since a ton more appeared almost instantly. Then, I learned that the ant foragers "drop what is called a ‘trail pheromone’ back to the nest that lets all the other worker ants know where a food supply has been found". Not only does the liquid in both baits kill the ants but it slowly kills them with enough time for them to spread it to the rest of the colony.
Cost/Available to purchase: $7.99 TERRO® Outdoor Liquid Ant Bait Stakes
$13.58 - 2 Pack TERRO® Indoor Liquid Ant Baits
Recommendation: Believe it or not both worked great! Not only did we stop seeing the ants enter the home in general (I am guessing from the stakes) but the one's we did see inside, were toast within a day, never to be seen again! Get yourself some if you've got an ant problem OR just in case it becomes a problem!
