Details

Terro-PCO is a liquid borate bait that instantly attracts and kills ants and their colonies. Terro-PCO is easy to use, has no unpleasant odors, may be used indoors and outdoors, comes ready to use in pre-filled bait station-this means no drips, spills, or messes. Ants will come to the bait station, enter, feed and then return to the colony to share the bait, therefore spreading the active ingredient to others.

Terro-PCO is also a "green" pesticide that can be used in Green Pest Management programs. As a borate-based product, Terro-PCO has a very minimal mammalian toxicity and targets specific pests. This reduces the repercussions on people, pets and non-target insects helpful to the environment (such as butterflies and honeybees). Also, Terro-PCO is applied only where needed, further reducing any unnecessary impact to the rest of the environment. And since it is long-lasting, less product is required for a successful and effective Green Pest Management program.

How do I use the Terro PCO Ant Bait Stations?

  1. Place baits, label side up, near ant trails or close to where ants are numerous.
  2. Place additional baits anywhere ants may enter the home.
  3. For best results, use seven baits to ensure sufficient supply for the ants.
  4. Monitor regularly for activity but do not interfere with the natural behavior of ants. Replace with additional baits when first set is depleted.
  5. Once ants are controlled, replace baits every three months to keep ants from returning.

    Sugar Ants

    By Robyn on 03/13/2012

    I've inherited sugar ants with my home 3 yrs ago. I've had a local business come and place bait and spray 3 times. Began seeing them on kitchen counter in Jan 2012, and as their numbers increased, I called same business to come spray/bait again. After being told they weren't offering their 60-day guarantee, I decided to figure something else out, as $159 for their service wasn't acceptable anymore. I found this product online and did some research and decided to give it a try as it was much less expensive than the alternative. The day it arrived something happened and the ant situation was over the top--by this I mean there were thousands on my counter to a point I couldn't lean against the edge of my sink. I was freaking out and trying to figure out where they were coming in. Regardless, I opened 4 bait stations and placed 2 at opposite ends of my counter and 2 on the floor where I found the ant highway. The next morning I dreaded seeing the ants weren't gone, and much to my surprise, not only were 98% gone, but the ones still around were by the bait stations on the floor and moving very slowly. I took the bait off my counters and placed them on the floor as well, and within the next 2 days, all ants were completely gone. I've left them on floor (under edge of cabinets) and out of the way. If I hadn't seen this myself, I wouldn't believe this worked so well and so fast. I was ready to move out due to infestation in my kitchen. I bought the box of 30 and will be placing them around within the coming months, as these ants are an ongoing problem--for my neighbors as well.

    Mission Accomplished

    By Dan on 07/11/2010

    Verified Purchase

    We were inundated with pavement ants at our beach house, especially in the kitchen. We had tried different solutions to no avail (Windex, bleach, keeping counters clean, etc.). After researching the problem and talking to my mom in Florida who had the same problem, we tried this product and voila -- after about two days, the ant problem went away. I left several traps on my counters in the path of the marching ants. It's important to let the ants feed on the traps and then go back to their nest where they feed the other ants and the queen. Borax is a slow killer so it takes a day or two. The amazing thing is that our treatment seemed to help the neighbors problem too! So in a nutshell, these traps work well! I leave a few traps around now just in case. A steady diet should keep the ant population in control.

    Terro Ant Bait

    By Tricia on 04/25/2012

    I have tried just about everything on the market to rid my home of an ant problem and this is the only solution I have found. Once you place the ant traps down, it only takes a couple of days for you to see them disappear. It's like magic. The key is changing them out every 3 months if you've had an ant problem like I've had. I'm not sure if I will have to use these forever in my home or just for certain times of the year yet but so far this is the best value for the return. I definately recommend this product. Great customer service also when I called to explain that my dogs dug into one of the traps. They quickly pointed me to their site and told me to locate the MSDS pdf and contact my vet just to be sure. Nice product and great customer service deserves a 5 star rating in my book. No drawbacks whatsoever.

    Silent time bomb

    By Jimmy on 06/03/2010

    This product works! It took out the ants out in three days. It's been 3 weeks since I last saw any ants. Out of the 30 stations, I only used 4 stations. As of 6/3/2010, I have 26 more stations on standby. I really recommend this product to anyone looking to rid themselves of rabbit ants.

    Something that actually works and its cheap

    By Thebplot on 06/29/2010

    A friend, who is an exterminator, gave me some of these for an ant problem last year.  He said "its the best on the market and only thing that really works".  This year, I bought these stations and did it myself - but still call him for my carpenter bees. Highly recommend product.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Will Terro PCo work on carpenter ants as well?

I have little black ants(I believe sugar ants) as well as carpenter ants. I am looking for an ant bait station that will work on both. Is this a good option?

A
Terro PCO Ant Bait Stations will treat carpenter ants as well as all types of other ants, as long as they are in the mood for a sugar bait.  It is highly recommended to also use Advance 375A Ant Granular Bait which is a protein bait.  You should always give ants a choice as they may be in the mood for either a protein (granule) or a sugar (gel) bait. Even though the smaller ants you have are typically called "sugar ants", they too can be in the mood for a protein and they will not touch the Terro if they are not in need of the sugar.

Q
Please tell me how to use the Terro PCO bait stations.

It seems if I cut the stations where they say to the liquid bait will just come out and run all over.

A
There will not be any mess using the Terro PCO Ant Bait Stations as long as you follow the product label instructions. The small cut will create a vacuum of sorts which will stop the bait from running out.

Q
What is shelf life of the Terro PCO Ant Bait Stations?

I plan to store them in a dry garage subject to winter freezing temps and 90+ degree summers.

A

The Terro PCO Ant Bait Stations do not really have an expiration date because the effectiveness of the active ingredient does not diminish over time. However, like any food-based product, the bait may become less appetizing to foraging ants after an extended shelf life. We recommend using fresh bait if you've had the same stations for more than two years.

How long does it take for Terro PCO Ant Bait Stations to start killing after an ant consumes the bait?

My sister has the ant problem and bought your drops and we were wondering how long it took to start working. the location where your product is being used is Flint,MI

A

Once ants consume the Terro PCO Ant Bait it starts working almost immediately to kill them. You should see results within 1-3 days from when the ants feed off the bait.
