How To Get Rid of Ants

How To Get Rid of Ants


Ants start emerging when the weather gets warmer. The colony has been dormant for the winter months, but now the forager ants will begin to look for food sources. Ants have a particular sweet tooth so will eat fruits, nectar and anything sugary they can find in your kitchen. 

In your garden, you will likely find ants under your patio or decking, in and around your flower beds and pots, and of course your lawn. They leave tell-tale signs along the edge of your grass by the means of small mounds of soil where they are able to come and go from their nest. 

Once forager ants find an ample source of food, they are able to leave a scent trail for other forager ants to follow, which means a couple of ants can become a lot of ants in a short period of time. 

As the colony grows, more food is required which means the foragers will travel further afield to find suitable food to feed them all. That could be problematic if they find some yummy food in your kitchen. It is always best practice to keep your kitchen clean and tidy. Making sure to clean up any spills or crumbs. 

Of course, there are home remedies available if the ant problem is just limited to a few here and there. However, if you are unlucky enough to be housing a colony, then you will certainly require the assistance of a professional pest controller. We can not only get rid of the ants, but we can help protect your home and garden from them returning. Leaving you to enjoy your summer in peace!
