by | Aug 1, 2014 | Pest Control

Summer has hit with a vengeance, and that means pesky insects that will bug the life out of you whether you are on a picnic or even in your own home. Ants have a habit of invading everything from your yard to the inside of your home if you aren’t careful, so it is important to call in Ant Control & experts to spray your home as soon as you suspect that you might have a problem.

There are a few things that you can do to help you prevent these pesky creatures from entering your home to begin with. Read on for a few tips on how to prevent an ant infestation on your property.

Keep Food in Seal Tight Containers

It is best to keep foods in storage containers that are sealed tightly. Ants can find their way into the tiniest cracks, so you will want to make sure that the containers are airtight. Make sure to wipe down the outside of every container, and never leave any food or food residue built up on the lid. Most ants are tiny, so they can fit through the smallest of places.

Keep the Floors and Counters Clean

You will want to keep the floors and counters of your kitchen and bathroom wiped and mopped on a regular basis. If you see something spilled on the floor, don’t let it sit there, make sure to mop it up right away. Ants love any type of stickiness and can be drawn to it quicker than flies.

Keep Trash Cans Tightly Sealed and Dog Food Covered

While your pets might love to be able to get to their food at any time of the day or night, so do the ants. You will want to keep your pet food covered when not in use. You will also want to make sure and keep tight lids on your trashcans, as ants are attracted to the trash inside.

Ant control isn’t as hard as some people think it is. If you follow the tips above and have an exterminator come in on a regular basis, your home should be ant free in no time at all.
