Ants In The House

When you see thousands of ants walking around inside your home it can be quite disturbing. I’m sure you will want them to disappear as quickly as possible, so we’re going to look at a few tricks you can use that will help you deal with them.

crackSeal Up Any Holes or Cracks

Look closely at an individual ant and you will appreciate how small they are. They don’t need a huge hole in order to get inside your home. The next time you see any ants walking around you should keep an eye on them and see where they’re getting in. Get a tube of sealant from your local hardware store and seal up the areas where they are getting in. It won’t mean you have won the war, but you will have won the first battle.

Clean Your Kitchen Properly

The kitchen is obviously the room they love the most because it’s full of lovely treats. If you don’t clean your kitchen properly it will end up overrun with ants looking for their next meal. Don’t leave any food lying around because it’s just laziness. If you don’t want to eat everything you cook you should wrap up the leftovers so the ants can’t get to them. You should also make sure you sweep the floor on a regular basis.
