Certain kinds of weather can make an ant invasion more likely in your home. Whether our area has a drought in the summer or an unusually rainy winter, you’ll have a higher chance of ending up with ant problems, especially with Argentine ants. Keep the following ant prevention tips in mind, so you’ll have a lower risk of needing pest control in Monmouth County for an infestation.
Use Cleaners and Household Products
Wipe down surfaces, floors and other areas with cleaning products and household products that repel ants. These pests don’t like to go near areas where bleach, vinegar, lemon or soap has been used, for example. Cleaning regularly also helps you get rid of crumbs and other items that could attract ants.
Seal up any openings on your home’s exterior, including around windows and doors, to prevent ants from being able to crawl in. Once these ants are inside, they could set up a nest in your home, making them harder to get rid of.
