Keeping Ants Out Of your Home

Posted on by fpadm

Ants are very tough little creatures. Regardless of how clean your home or commercial spaces are, sometimes these pests simply find a way. Whether you’ve watched them gradually take over your kitchen or bathroom or seen them swarming around your garden pavers, it’s a good idea to call the ant control services’ experts at Forensic Pest Control.

Most people first try off-the-shelf ant control products, but these are quite ineffective and you will find that the ant community hasn’t been affected by these chemicals at all. Take a look at what you can do to tackle an ant problem effectively:

Ants are highly developed insects that build large colonies and can defile kitchen counters and pantry areas because this is where they find plenty of food. They are active throughout all seasons, and especially during the summer months.

Different types of ant species

In fact, if there is an unprecedented downpour like the ones that Sydney frequently experiences, you are very likely to find a greater incidence of ants in the indoor areas of your property. Some of the ant species you can expect to see in and around your home are:

  • Coastal brown ants
  • White-footed house ants
  • Sugar ants
  • Meat ants
  • Other

Some of these species feed largely on sugar and it’s why you will generally notice them in areas where you store sugar, honey etc. They may also attack the food in your pet’s bowl. While some species spread over the countertops in kitchens, others march up walls and along ceilings as well. Since there are so many different types of ants, it’s important to know which species you are dealing with, before you actually try any specific pest control treatments.

One of the primary reasons why store-bought pest control products are largely ineffective is because they don’t tackle ant infestations by species. A certain product may be effective in eliminating black ants in your home but may have no effect on a red ant infestation in the garden.
