How To Prevent Ant Infestations

Posted on June 17th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

When ants swarm a property, it can put a lot of stress on the homeowner. Luckily, there are things you can do to prevent this from happening in the first place! Continue reading to discover what they are. 

Remove Nesting Materials

Ants will be more inclined to become your new roommates if there is plenty of nesting materials on your property. Getting rid of nesting materials, such as vegetation and debris, can help you avoid this scenario. It is one way to keep ants off your property in the long run.

Store Food Properly

Since ants will be on the lookout for food, it is no surprise that you may find ants in your kitchen. Remember to store food in sealed containers and clean your kitchen on a routine basis. That way, there will not be any leftovers or crumbs for ants to eat. 

Do Away With Moisture Sites & Standing Water

In addition to food, ants will be on the search for moisture sites and standing water. Having a dehumidifier installed in damp areas of your home will help reduce the amount of moisture in the air. You can get rid of standing water by getting any leaky pipes repaired.
