When warm weather ends a long winter everyone starts dreaming of all the things that they want to do in the summer. It probably involves time at the beach, picnics, and weekend trips to the cottage. The last thing on anyone’s mind are the insects that come with the territory of warm weather. And even worse than that, is having to deal with these insects finding their way into your home, one of the most common being ants. They are tough little bugs, and by the time you start to see them it is often too late to prevent an infestation.
Ants in Your Home
Ants are a nuisance when they find their way indoors. The first that enter your home are scouts who are looking for food. If they find some and make their way back to the colony, more will gradually enter your home. More often than anything else, ants cause damage to stored foods. Food is their main objective, so keeping food sealed is effective even if it is inconvenient. If you let your ant problem get out of hand over time, they have also been known to cause structural damage to buildings by eating and borrowing through wood.
Ridding Your Home of Ants
There are a number of different techniques in the prevention and treatment of an ant infestation. The easiest thing to do is to buy “Raid” or another pesticide at a hardware store and spray it in problem areas. Adhesive tape can also be utilized as an effective trap for these little insects. However, the downside with these quick fixes is that they treat the immediate problem, but you will be back where you started in a couple weeks.
You also have to be careful when dealing with pesticide sprays if you have pets. They can harm your animals if they are infested in any way. Dogs in particular are at risk for licking the pesticide after it has been sprayed. Due to this, your best bet is to hire a professional to help you fix your problem.
