NOTE: Originally published in 2018; don’t miss the video! – Are Terro Liquid Ant Baits the very best ant killer on the market? I don’t know. What I do know is that when the run-of-the-mill cheapo ant traps didn’t work, these Terro ant baits did the job in no time. (BTW, this is NOT a paid post, just talking about a product I actually used that was worth the money.)
Here’s my story…
The Ants Invaded
As the weather warmed up in the spring, the ants came, more so than any other year I could remember. Our neighbors said it was bad for them, too.
First, it was just a few ants in the kitchen. But they were the big carpenter ants, those ones where you can easily see every section of their crunchy little bodies. We put out some of those little ant traps on the floor, those whitish ones with the dome-like structure. Those work on the itsy-bitsy ants, but the carpenters seemed to laugh them off. We left the traps out to see if they’d eventually work — the ants that go to those traps are supposed to bring the poison back to the nest and kill off the rest — but the numbers increased, and I knew it would only be a matter of time before they made it to the pantry.
