Get Rid Of Ants In Your Home Once & For All
Ants will appear in a person’s home for a number of reasons. The search for food is usually the largest reason for an ant infestation. It’s not that they want to bother you or cause distress, just like us, ant colonies need to eat to survive. Your home provides food and water sources, as well as protection from predators and the outside elements. If you’re looking to get rid of ants in your home, check out a few of these possible reasons you could be having an ant problem in the first place!
Food & Cleanliness
As mentioned, leaving food out is one of the main reasons ants will invade your property. The kitchen, where leftover food resides, is a common spot for infestations.
To get rid of ants, ensure you are cleaning your home regularly, especially any spills made in the kitchen. Airtight containers are a great way to prevent pests from invading your pantry and keeping any sweet fruits stored in the fridge.
- Clean up crumbs and around pet food bowls
- Keep lids on the trashcan and take them out often
- Store fruit and sweets in the fridge
- Use airtight containers to store foods in the pantry
- Repair leaky pipes and remove standing water sources
Call a Professional
Removing ants can be extremely difficult for the untrained individual. Most remove only the ants they can visibly see and assume the issue is resolved. However, without finding and removing the nest, your ant issue will continue to persist. The ant colony is generally located outdoors, so the ants that you are seeing indoors are actually only collecting food to bring back to their nest. Nests also tend to move around from place to place, making it extremely difficult to control.
