Ant Pest Control: Ants are some of the most common and annoying insects around your home. Most ants that are found in the home have nests outdoors and only enter homes in search of food and water. A small number of ants found indoors may become more permanent residents and establish a nest within a building. Treating ants involves finding the nests and eliminating them.
Ant colonies may be home to anywhere from 300,00 to 500,000 ants which is why finding and eliminating the colonies is vital in ant control. Using DIY products usually only eliminate the ants you can see leaving the rest of the nest intact.
How Do Ants Get In and How Do You Get Rid of Them?
Ants can fit through the smallest of cracks. This means they can fit thru tiny cracks under a door, around windows, or thru a vent etc.. Once inside your home they go in search of food and water. Once a food source has been found they leave a chemical trail for other ants to follow.
