While ants are small, the groups in which they travel can be large, and are common unwelcome guests in people’s homes. Ants can form colonies, making the problem worse if not addressed right away. Ant infestations can occur year-round, but is more common in warmer climates. A few ant species that often make their way into homes are Argentine Ants, Crazy Ants, Odorous House Ants, Pavement Ants, Pharaoh Ants, Thief Ants, and Carpenter Ants.
Tips For Getting Rid of Ants
There are a number of things you can do on your own to get rid of ants and to prevent more from coming in.
Homemade Ant Bait
A homemade bait including borax and powdered sugar will attract ants to one location. Ants are attracted to sugar, but the borax is what will end up poisoning the ants. Ants may even carry bait to the nest, which would help to get rid of ants from their central source.
A mix of vinegar and water can be used both to deter ants and to get of them directly. Either spray in areas you notice the ants traveling, or spray directly onto ants.
Sanitation & Cleanliness
Many ants are attracted to food, especially sugar. To make your home less ant-friendly, make sure there are no crumbs, spills, or garbage in the kitchen or other areas of your home. Secure all food products and sweets and make sure surfaces are clean and sanitized to make your home less attractive to ants.
