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.
- Tidy the bottom cupboards in the kitchen, pick up all debris.
- Pick up food from countertops and tables.
- 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.
