Keeping Ants Out For Good
Proudly Serving South Carolina | North Carolina | Georgia
Some ant colonies can be difficult to fully eliminate once established which makes preventative measures and regular routine extermination important in the battle to keep ants out of your home. Ants usually invade your home looking for food and water to bring back their colonies. Once they find food they will alert others leading to an ant infestation. Eliminating any easy sources of food and water as well as fixing cracks and holes where ants are able to enter your home can be very helpful in preventing ant infestations.

Eliminating and Preventing an Ant Infestation
Once you have an ant infestation, it may take some time and patience to fully rid your home and surrounding area of ants. Ants are an extremely common and persistent pest so both elimination and prevention are important steps in keeping your home ant free. The best ways to prevent ants from entering your home are:
- Eliminating food sources: Ants enter your home looking for food and water. Ensuring food is kept in sealed containers, keeping pet food off of the floor, and keeping your kitchen clean takes away an ant’s motivation to invade your home and kitchen.
- Routine treatment from a professional exterminator: Having an exterminator routinely treat and inspect your home can be extremely effective in keeping ants away.
- Fully destroy colonies: Killing the queen of a colony will ensure the colony cannot reproduce and come back.
- Repair points of entry: Ants will enter your home through small cracks and holes in and around windows, walls, or foundations. Inspecting the area outside of your home for these points of entry and fixing them help keep ants out of your home.
