TERRO-PCO Liquid Ant Bait can be diluted with water to obtain a 1% or 2% solution of Borax. Such a dilution is helpful when you plan on using a substantial volume of TERRO-PCO Liquid Ant Bait in a baiting program designed to control very large multiqueen and multi-colony ant infestations.
1% Dilution: 1 part TERRO-PCO Liquid Ant Bait to 5 parts water. Mix thoroughly. 2% Dilution: 1 part TERRO-PCO Liquid Ant Bait to 2 parts water. Mix thoroughly.
This stuff really works. I've been fighting ants for 22 years and this is the first year I'm ant free...well my house is anyway. No ants in our bed, toilets, kitchen bathrooms.... Put on perimeter of your home and watch it work. I can even put food on my kitchen counter and still ant free. I feel liberated!
I use this to refill the Terro outdoor bait stations. I date each station when I refill. Occasionally I need to wash out the stations especially when the liquid has dried. You must be patient at first, and then consistent after that. I am now to the point where I refill about every 6-8 weeks and have no or very few invasions into my home
This stuff works beyond compare. Keep it outside and you'll keep the ants outside as well. A neighbor turned me onto this and for the first time in 20 some years I don't have ants all over my house! Highly recommend.
Someone spilled the Terro-PCO liquid ant bait on a tile floor. How could this be cleaned?.
Would there be any danger to them in cleaning this up?
The Terro PCO liquid can be cleaned by pouring kitty litter of the spill and sweeping it up. Soap and water can clean any sticky areas. Please refer to the Terro PCO MSDS for further information if needed: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/msds/label_msds_terropco.pdf
What is the most effective dilution? 1% or 2% or as shipped?
TERRO-PCO Liquid Ant Bait can be diluted with water to obtain a 1% or 2% solution of Borax. Such a dilution is helpful when you plan on using a substantial volume of TERRO-PCO Liquid Ant Bait in a baiting program designed to control very large multi-queen and multi-colony ant infestations. We recommend using the lower usage rate at first so more of the ants are able to get back and forth between the bait and the colony before they succumb to the bait.
What are similarities and differences between Terro PCO Liquid Ant Bait and DominAnt Liquid Ant Bait?
DominAnt Liquid Ant Bait is a newer formulation of sweet-based, liquid ant bait made by Nisus. The active ingredient is the same, 5.4% Boric Acid, and the uses are basically the same as well. DominAnt is replacing the Terro PCO Liquid Ant Bait, which will soon be unavailable. DominAnt concentrate is available in both a pint and a gallon size, and it may be used as is or diluted. Please see the product label for full instructions.
Terro PCO Liquid Ant Bait does not 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 liquid bait for more than two years.
