Home Ant Control Tips
Ants are such a pesky insect. They can cause a surprising amount of damage. And they are just a nuisance. Here we will detail some effective ant control methods to use in your home. When you look at these insects, there are things you can do. Like call us! So do not panic about the issue at hand, but reading these tips is a helpful way to manage.
Extinguish the Pheromone Trail
House ants leave behind pheromones, which is a chemical trail to and from travel sites. An effective way of preventing house ants from infiltrating your home is to extinguish the pheromone trail. Following this trail should also bring you to the colony site, which then needs to be exterminated to properly rid you of your ant problems.
Soapy water eliminates the pheromone trail. Then, use a homemade ant bait trap to lure in and destroy the colony of ants. Spraying vinegar in cracks on counter-tops or on baseboards can also get rid of the pheromone trail.
An effective homemade method is powdered sugar, which will attract the ants and can be killed by mixing Borax in the solution. One part Borax and three parts of sugar will get the job done. Fill any tiny container and place these traps by areas you know or suspect ants to be infiltrating your home from.
If you are worried about using this mix due to the presence of kids or pets, mix it with water and soak it up with cotton balls. Then these balls can be placed in areas that cannot be reached by cats, dogs or children. Do not simply kill them on the trail, either, as the most effective way to eliminate ants is to have them carry the poisonous solution back to the colony.
However, perhaps the best method of preventing ants from entering your home is to keep up good sanitation practices. Clean up spills, crumbs, and garbage right away to make your home less attractive to ants. Storing foods properly is also an effective way of preventing ants. Having half-open jars or drips on the side can easily attract ants to the cupboards and establishing themselves inside your home.
