If you had to have one kind of bug in your home what would it be? Most people would probably say ants. Yet these seemingly innocuous creatures can do quite a bit of damage if left unmanaged. Once ants have found a food source in your home, they leave a trail for other ants to follow. Other ants will follow the pheromone trail to the food source, and you’ll have an entire procession on your hands. On your end, you want to be sure that you’re not leaving anything out for the ants to snack on!
Let’s face it, as tiny creatures ants will find a way to get into your house. The question then becomes: Why do these ants want to be in my house? Making sure your cereal boxes are closed tight, keeping up on dirty dishes, and taking out the trash proactively can go a long way toward reducing your ant problem. But what you do if all that fails?
