Ants can easily be one of the most frustrating and pernicious infestations you can face in your home or business. There are more than 700 types of ants in the United States, and several of them can become pests for home and business owners.

Ants often situate their colonies in hard-to-reach, out-of-the-way places, making it difficult to accurately assess the extent of the infestations and effectively treat them. And, to make matters worse, ant infestations have an extremely high chance of recurring unless you address the factors that drew them in the first place.

If you need ant control in your area, Mike’s Pest and Termite Control is the company you want. We have extensive pest control experience and pride ourselves on a history of success. Call us today.

One Ant Usually Means More

Ants prefer to live in large colonies numbering hundreds or thousands of individuals, but they tend to explore their environment individually to make the best use of their resources. If an ant explores your home or business and likes what it sees, it will make its way back to the colony to tell the others. As it travels, it leaves a pheromone trail behind the other ants can use to find their way back. It’s a highly efficient system and explains why ant infestations can seemingly come out of nowhere and grow large fast.

Tips For Inspecting Your Home For Ant Access Points

Here are some of the ways that ants can make their way into your home:

  • Doors: Doors that lack proper seals can be an easy way for ants to gain access to your home. Look for ants around doorways as a potential sign of ant infestations.
  • Windows: Ill-fitting windows or windows with bad seals can allow ants to enter. Look for ants emerging around windows.
  • External openings: Ants can exploit external openings to come inside, including cracks, gaps, and holes. Consider ants around these areas as warning signs.

Natural Ant Removal Methods

There are many suggested ways to remove ant infestations on your property, and many of them utilize natural ingredients like borax, white vinegar, lemon juice, cinnamon, peppermint, and even boiling water. The problem with these treatments is that they attempt to treat the ants you see and rarely address the colony. You can get some of the ants, but you won’t get all of them, and the surviving ants can easily rebuild the infestation. You can try and try, and the ant infestation continues.

Ant control in your house is serious, and best left to professionals who know how to do the job the right way the first time. Contact Mike’s Pest and Termite Control today to get rid of termites.
