2 Ways To Prevent Ants From Making A Move On Your House

Evan Patterson

Ants in your house are no fun. They get into your food, they wander around everywhere, and they can come up in places you least expect. If you think that you have ants invading your house, you need to make sure that you are doing everything you can to get rid of the ants in your house and make sure that none of their friends decide to take up residence well. The easiest way to control ants is to prevent them, so what can you do to keep them from making a home in your house?

Watch For Food Sources

You want to cut off any food sources that the ants might have access to. That means making sure that you keep all the containers of food sealed up, crumbs wiped up, and that you fix any dripping pipes. Even the smallest drip can be a great water source for an ant. You also need to make sure that any children you might have bring out any dishes from their bedrooms because ants will find food, regardless of wherever it is. They are not going to limit themselves to just your kitchen space. 

Clean Ant Trails

If you have ever watched ants, you will notice that they will all follow the same pathways, even if the path is long and winding when they find food. That's because the first ant to find the food laid a chemical trail down for the rest of the ants to follow. That trail may as well have bright neon signs that have arrows and point to the food. You can easily disrupt the trails just by using something like a sponge dipped in a vinegar and water solution. Make sure that you are also paying attention to any new places you see ants because they will leave a trail as well. You could always fill up a spray bottle with your vinegar and water solution and spray it wherever you see ants in order to eradicate their trails. 

If you are fighting a losing battle against ants, you want to do everything you can to make sure that you can get them out of your house. In many situations, it's important to call an exterminator. They can help you get rid of the ants and prevent new ones from taking up residence. Your exterminator can also give you tips on making sure that you are preventing more ants in the future. Contact an ant control service for more information.

Exploring The Benefits Of Hiring Pest Control Experts

Hi there, my name is Taylor Stone. Ant problems do not just go away on their own. I thought that keeping my home clean would eliminate ants from the premises after they stopped finding food lying about. Boy was I wrong about that. The ants kept streaming inside the home in tiny lines that caused me great distress. The ants went into my pantry and even tried to go into the fridge. I eventually had to call in pest control experts to remove these critters from the vicinity. I was astonished at how quickly and efficiently the pest control experts worked to resolve this trying problem. They got more done in a few weeks than I could accomplish in a year's time. I hope to share the benefits of hiring a pest control expert immediately upon noticing a problem. Thank you.
