Tips to get rid of ants
Ridding excessive or unwanted food sources is one of the most important parts of a long-term successful ant-free home. Sanitation of your kitchen, bathrooms, water source locations, dishes, spilled liquids, etc. is a must for an Ant-free home or business.
Keep kitchen appliances clean. Ants in kitchen locations can easily sustain themselves from little food sources as small as grease, crumbs, spilled drinks, seasoning, etc. The smallest crumb on the floor is equivalent to a giant steak off the grill to a human. It is imperative to clean under and in cabinets, behind your oven, inside and outside of the refrigerator, small appliances, dishwasher, and any moisture areas such as your sink.
Keep cabinets and your pantry clean. Once again, any small crumbs, food spills, etc. will attract ants from afar.
Keep open containers of food secured. Ants are tiny and can easily get into the open packaging. Storing this type of food in hard plastic sealed containers will work wonders keeping the ants away from getting into these locations.
Try not to eat in various locations of the home. Keeping food limited to certain areas will help minimize the risk of those spills or crumb droppings that we keep reiterating.
Clean the kitchen and wipe everything down at night. Avoiding food on counters, dishes in the sink, dirty dishes in the dishwasher, etc. is a major key in sanitation.
Have Pets? Do not keep pet food in open containers overnight. It is important to cover them or put them in a safe place like a refrigerator.
And lastly, keep your inside trash cans from sitting with food scraps in them and outside trash bins clean and covered. It is recommended to bleach them once a month at a minimum.
