Get Rid of Ants in Your Home

Control ants in your home with these tips

Two basic things will help keep your home rid of ants: Sealing up the ways they get in and eliminating their reasons for wanting to be there in the first place.

There are a number of commercial ant baits, killers and sprays at your local True Value to keep ants from encroaching on your kitchen and home. Some kill on contact but many of these are formulated so the ants carry the poison back to the colony themselves.

Ask your local Hardwareian which ant treatment is right for you.

Keeping your home clean and clear of crumbs and delicious particles for ants to steal is a great preventative measure against ants. Sealing food in airtight dishes seals in the smell and also the freshness for you. Same goes for pet food. In a tightly shut bin ants can’t smell it and Fido is less likely to open it himself.

Use clear silicone caulk on cracks in exterior walls windows and doors to create an ant proof seal. You may not be able to fill every crack but this will definitely deter invaders.

That’s it. Need more expert advice? Stop by Martens True Value hardware store in Reedsburg and ask one of our Hardwareians.
