Insect prevention:  Extermination Insects and Ants

Ant colonies send out scouts to find food. They are attracted by several kinds of sweet and fatty foods like peanut butter and bread. The scout whose research has been fruitful leaves behind an odor that allows others working to trace the source of food.

The easiest way to avoid insect problems is to remove sources of food and water:

  • Store food ant-attractive in glass jars with lid is provided with a rubber packing or in sealed plastic containers.
  • Keep clean kitchen counters. Sweep the floor or vacuum often, especially around the containers used to feed pets.
  • Rinse containers before putting them in the trash or recycling bin.
    frequently empty the kitchen garbage.
  • Place the composter at a reasonable distance from the house.
  • Place bowls of pets in a shallow dish of water – ants cannot swim.

Repair and seal the greatest possible number of visible cracks in the foundation and exterior walls of your home.

Inside the house, caulk gaps around baseboards, cracks, and crevices to prevent ants from entering. Use as needed, duct tape or petroleum jelly to temporarily seal cracks.
Ants will not cross sticky barriers. Ask the double-sided tape around the base of the shelves flowerpots.Flood nests repeatedly with a garden hose to encourage the ants to move away from your home. Pour boiling water and detergent in the nest to temporarily reduce the population of the colony.
