How to Keep Ants Away from Your Home
Once you notice ants in your home, there is a good chance they are nesting in your floors or walls. Once you make your pest control appointment, there are ways to limit the amount of ants coming from the nest. The following steps will help to keep ants at bay until exterminators arrive:
Clean Food Spills
Sweep and Vacuum Floors
Keep Foods in Air-Tight Containers
Seal Cracks in Windows and Doors
Keep Firewood or Mulch Away from Home
Wash Dishes Regularly
Keep Pet Food Stored in an Air-Tight Container
Rinse Out Trash or Recycled Bottles/Containers
This will help limit the amount of ants until pest control services can inspect and treat your home. Once the source is eliminated, the ant infestation will cease.
What to Expect from an Ant Exterminator
Once the exterminators leave, you will not notice a huge difference right away. Exterminators use a gel bait to lure ants to the insecticide. This bait mimics the pheromone released by ants, which causes them to come out of hiding and consume the bait. If you continue to see ant trails, do not disturb them. Once the bait enters the body, it will begin killing off the ants, giving you your home back. Contact Eastern-Burkholder Exterminators, Inc. today for an inspection and ant extermination services.
