When you have ants in your home, it’s important to get this kind of infestation under control. Otherwise, ants can end up nesting in your home while increasing their population. They can also ruin your food and even spread germs in your home. A Colts Neck NJ exterminator can provide effective pest control when you have an ant problem. You can also take the following steps to deal with these pests.
Find Out What’s Attracting Them
Ants invade homes where they have found food. Look around to see if you can determine what the ants in your home are going after, such as a spill on the floor or crumbs on the counter. Getting rid of their food source might stop ants from coming back into your home. Just make sure you keep food debris and spills cleaned up to prevent another infestation.
Destroy Scouting Trails
Ants notify other ants in their colony about food sources nearby. These scout ants leave a trail of pheromones that act as a path for other ants to follow. When you see where ants are coming from, wipe down this area with a mix of water and vinegar, which gets rid of these trails. Eliminating these trails can help stop more ants from the colony from invading your home.
