Are ant colonies making their way inside your home? Ants can sneak through the tiniest of cracks and are a nuisance in your kitchen and other rooms in your home.
Single ants wouldn’t be a problem for most homeowners. The problem is, ants tend to come in colonies of hundreds or thousands. Colonies of this size entering a home can be serious business. Remember that most do-it-yourself ant control approaches kill only the ants you see. Some truly effective treatments can penetrate and destroy nests to help prevent these pests from returning. Also, home remedies don’t account for the fact that different kinds of ant infestations require different treatments.
Living with ants doesn’t have to be the new normal. Get rid of them once and for all with Heritage Pest and lawn’s Deland area ant control services.
What Causes Ant Invasions in Deland AREA Homes?
Ant invasions are often seasonal and have to do with the weather outside. Ants are most likely to enter homes during cold, wet conditions. If you notice an increase or decline in ants entering your home, it may have to do with the weather.
The following are a few other important facts to know about ant invasions.
Ants love areas with high moisture, shelter, and accessibility to food. When ants come inside, it’s usually because they’re looking to fulfill one of their needs. The landscape near your home may be just the invitation they need!
Vegetation placed too close to the perimeter of your home near tiny ant entryways may be contributing to your ant infestation. Ants love plants for food, moisture, and shelter. Flowers, grass, shrubs, or trees touching your home could be the bridge inviting ants to enter.
Delicious Smells Coming from Your Home
When ants detect a new food source, they’ll make it their job to find it. Ants love sugary foods so it’s important to keep foods sealed and in difficult places for ants to reach. During the spring and summer months, remove garbage from your home frequently to avoid giving them another reason to sneak inside.
Your Home Isn’t Fully Sealed
You may not know a crack exists, but ants are guaranteed to find it. Though it’s impossible to check every square inch of your home, special attention should be given to foundations, seams, doors, and windows. These cracks should be sealed to keep ants and other insects from entering your home.
