How can I control ants?
Ant Control is a difficult job to do. You have to prevent ants from entering your house, which is a very hard task. Many ants do not leave a living nest until they have food and shelter in another location. Therefore, if you wish to prevent an ant problem, you have to stop them from entering and creating a new living space.
Ants do not like heat. So, if you have an ant problem, make sure you keep the windows slightly open or let in some light. This will cause the ants that enter your house to be less active and therefore, less likely to leave any of their nests. If you are not seeing any ants outside, but there are ant trails inside, your main problem is not necessarily ants, but rather the nest they have created.
To fully exterminate an ant problem, you need to both destroy the nests, but you also need to prevent the ants from coming back.
Ant control can be tricky, but it is also not as hard as you might think. You have to watch for their movement, and where they feed. The best form of control is prevention. For the elimination of an existing colony of ants, you must first destroy all the nest sites and then, prevent them from rebuilding the nest.
