(Possible) Pharaoh Ants

Hi all,

Today I placed some Terro Liquid bait to control the little black ants in my garden. A few hours later I went to check the results, I found the bait was actually filled with tiny red ants (< 2mm)

I did some research online, they are possibly Pharaoh ants? Some websites even mentioned putting the wrong bait would actually cause the colony to spread and make things worse.

Should I be concerned? Or the Terro ant bait will just be fine. They seems to like it though.
Any advice is appreciated!

They are killed by boric acid so let Terro do it’s thing.

OP, did Terro work out at the end? Thanks

Sorry I decided to remove the bait. Didn’t want to risk it since they are only in the garden and I have never see any tiny red ants invasion inside of my house (small black ones did though)
