Ant Control - Dealing With Ants

Ant Control

Regardless of what type of property you own, dealing with pests such as ants is something you simply won’t be able to avoid.
In large numbers they pose a real health concern, therefore while ants may seem small and harmless and look unsightly, they can spread bacteria including Salmonellae.

Do ants live in the walls of your house?

Difficult ants

While ants are persistent and could spoil more than a picnic, ants are omnivorous, they consume everything. They feed on aphids milk and other tiny hemipteras, insects, tiny living or dead animals, as well as plant sap and multiple fruits in nature. They also eat eggs of insects.

Luckily, you can take many easy measures to solve the issue once you understand what kind of ant you’re dealing with.

Examples of what draws ants into your kitchen include:

  • Improperly stored foods
  • Overly ripe or rotting fruits and vegetables
  • Food crumbs and sugary spills
  • An unsanitary environment
  • Trash
  • Moisture

How do I get rid of an ant infestation?

In order to make your home or yard less inviting, knowing what the ant requires is essential. Some of the ants are eating wood. Others eat the food of people, and some feed on crops and other insects that are decaying. Contact Prokil Pest Control to help identifying ants.

Managing Ants Inside

  • Seal any cracks and crevices that ants may use to enter your home.
  • Wipe up ant trails with soapy water to remove any pheromone trails.
  • Vacuum up ants. Dispose of the vacuum bag right away.
  • Regularly empty and wash rubbish bins and recycling bins. Clean up crumbs and spills, especially with sweet liquids like soda.
  • If ants are coming inside, consider keeping food in hard, sealed containers, not cardboard boxes or paper wrappers. Attractive items, such as sugar and honey, can also be stored in the refrigerator.
Managing Ants Outside
  • The most effective way to kill small black ants is to use ant baits
  • If a potted plant has ants, consider creating a ‘moat’ barrier around them. Elevate potted plants inside a larger bowl full of water and detergent keeping them above the water line.
  • Keep vegetation around the house trimmed so that ants can’t travel from shrubbery or branches to the house.
  • Fix leaky pipes or clogged gutters, replace any moisture damaged wood and store firewood, where carpenter ants may nest, away from the home.
  • Locate and remove the ant nest(s). Different ant species prefer different nesting sites.
  • You will need to have an understanding of what nutritional needs are required by the species of ant to determine the type of ant bait to use. Different baits provide different dietary values, such as protein, sugar, or carbohydrates.

Which Ant

  • Identify the ant species before choosing a treatment strategy.  
  • Wipe up ant trails with soapy water.
  • Vacuum up ants and empty the bag or bin outdoors promptly.
  • Never leave open food containers or food crumbs on countertops, tables, furniture, the floor, or other areas of the house.
  • Insecticide sprays are a great way to deal with a few ants that may have entered your house
  • Remove waste and recycling often
  • Use sealed containers to store food
  • Seal cracks and gaps around your home

Outside tips

  • Trim vegetation away from around the house
  • Fix dripping taps
  • Regular clean guttering
  • Remove recycling and garbage often.
  • Store food items in sealed containers.
  • Caulk or seal cracks and crevices around your home.
  • Trim back plants that directly contact the outside of your home.
  • Fix leaky pipes or clogged gutters and replace any moist wood.
  • Find and eliminate the ant nest(s).
