Pre-Empt Pest Control is here to share some of the most common places that you may find ants in your home so you can find and get rid of them for good.
Where Do Ants Come from in the Kitchen?
This shouldn’t come as a surprise that the kitchen is one of the first places you should look when you find ants in your home. There are many things that attract ants in the kitchen. Not only are ants happy to eat whatever you are eating, they are also often looking for a water source which is also found in your kitchen. To keep them out of the kitchen, follow these simple steps:
– Store your food properly. They are going to be looking for any sugary or greasy foods that could be hiding in your kitchen.
– Clean up spills as soon as possible as they will enjoy that as a meal as well.
– Don’t keep any over ripe fruit as this attracts many pests.
– Fix any leaking faucets.
Ant Infestations in Bathroom
Another common place you may notice ant activity is your bathroom. This is another place they can easily find moisture which is one of the biggest attractants for ants. Checking your bathroom on a regular basis for any signs of leaking is a great way to avoid this issue. You should be cleaning your bathroom on a regular basis to avoid ant infestation as they are often attracted to leaking shampoo and lotion bottles as well.
