What Attracts Ants?
Ants are constantly searching for adequate food and water sources to take
care of their colonies, and homes provide both. Leaving out any food in
your kitchen or yard will often result in an ant infestation. Ants are
most commonly attracted to anything damp, left out dog food, cat food,
sugar, uncovered food, and bread.
How Can I Prevent Ants from Coming inside My House?
No one likes to walk into their kitchen or bathroom and find hundreds of
ants swarming. While they aren’t typically harmful, you definitely
don’t want them in your home. Ants easily enter your home through
even the smallest cracks and crevices. Once inside, they are most often
found in kitchens and bathrooms, but can also be found inside walls, bedrooms,
living rooms, basements, and air conditioning and heating units. Luckily,
there are things you can do to prevent ant invasions.
These precautions include:
- Quickly and thoroughly cleaning up spilled food or sugary drinks
- Clearing away and spilled food or water from your pet’s bowls
- Using airtight containers to store your food
- Avoiding leaving leftovers out
- Making sure your trashcans are always clean
- Sealing off windows, doors, and cable, pipe, and wire entry points
Generally, by keeping your home extra clean, you can avoid ant infestations.
Why You Need to Call Professional Ant Control
Ant infestations come without warning and are extremely difficult to manage
without the help of professionals. Wiping away a few ants here and there
is no big deal, but if you are regularly fighting off swarms of ants every
summer, you need professional help. Because colonies often have thousands
of members, ants are one of the hardest pests to eliminate. Ant controllers
know how to accurately identify ant species, locate their colonies, and
implement effective treatment.
