3 Important Ways To Keep Ants Out Of Your Home

May 9, 2017

Though they can be troublesome, ants can also be fascinating. Their ability to communicate is a perfect example. Seeing one ant may seem innocent, but more often than not, it is an indication of something bigger hiding in the walls. The scouts are blazing a trail for the rest of the colony.
The typical response people have is to quickly go out and grab a few traps and expect the problem to be solved. At times it’s enough, but at others, you need to do something more. You have to be prepared to wage a war against an insect that is regimented, smart, and has a queen directing the drones. It’s you against the many.

There are a few things you can do to tip the scales however.

  1. Tidy the bottom cupboards in the kitchen, pick up all debris.
  2. Pick up food from countertops and tables.
  3. Clean up bathroom vanity.

Keeping your house clean is the best defense against ants. Keeping the kitchen and bathroom tidy doesn’t take long, but it will ensure your success.
