Ways To Get Rid Of Ants In The Summertime

Posted on August 8th, 2019 by Knockout Pest

Ants can show up at the most inconvenient times, like when you are hosting a party in your backyard with family and friends. Do not let ants ruin your summer fun! Below are some tips that will help you steer clear of ants this season.

Get Rid Of Water Sources

It is no secret that ants are drawn to water sources. To make your home a less appealing place for ants to reside, eliminate any standing water near your home. In addition, be sure to have any leaky plumbing fixtures repaired within your house. 

Do Not Leave Food Out

Ants are always on the lookout for food. To discourage ants from joining your next meal, do not leave food unattended. Give your kitchen table and countertops a good cleaning to ensure that no crumbs or food scraps are left behind. 

Seal Points Of Entry To Your Home

Even the smallest crevices on the exterior of your house can allow ants to come right in. To prevent ants from entering your home, remember to seal up access points. Sealing up these cracks with caulk can help you keep your home free of ants.

Do not spend your summer testing out home remedies to wipe out a swarm of ants in your home.
