What Attracts Ants to a Home?
Ant invasions don’t ever happen for no reason. Ants are constantly searching for adequate food and water sources for their colonies, and when they find them, they swarm. Ants most commonly invade homes when they find uncovered food, sugar, dog food, cat food, and crumbs. They are most often found in bathrooms and kitchens, where they have plenty of access to food and water. Sometimes, even if you haven’t left food out, ants are attracted to your home simply because their colony is nearby and you have too many holes and openings on your property, giving them easy access.
How to Prevent Ants from Coming Inside
While ants aren’t dangerous, they certainly aren’t welcome in our homes. Whether you find them crawling on your kitchen counter or in your bathroom sink, you want them gone. Luckily, there are a few precautions you can take to avoid ant invasions.
- Thoroughly clean up any food spills
- Keep dog and cat bowls clean and wipe up any spilled food or water
- Store food in sealed containers
- Put all leftovers into airtight containers in the refrigerator
- Clean trash cans regularly
- Inspect indoor potted plants for pest activity
- Seal any holes, gaps, or cracks into your home
With proper sanitation and exclusion, you can significantly reduce your chances of experiencing an ant invasion.
When Should I Call a Professional Ant Controller?
Most of the time, ants are simply a nuisance. Finding a few ants here and there is extremely common and usually nothing to worry about. However, if you are frequently fighting swarms of ants in your home, you need to call a professional. Only professional pest controllers know how to properly exterminate ants by identifying ant species, locating their colonies, and applying the proper treatment.
