Pest Prevention Tips: Ants

Help protect your home from unwanted guests!

With over 700 species of ants in the U.S. alone, this is one frustrating pest to deal with. Some ants are attracted to sweets and some seek out more savory foods and they all get into just about everything if they invade your home.

Controlling an ant infestation takes the skill of a licensed professional to identify the type of ant, inspect the home to determine how they are getting in and then the proper treatment to eliminate the problem.

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to protect your home from an invasion of this tiny army:

  • Eliminate sources of moisture in and around your home especially under kitchen and bathroom sinks and your gutters and drainage areas
  • Keep all food stored in sealed, air-tight containers
  • Clean up spills immediately
  • Keep trees and shrubs trimmed away from your home

If you are experiencing an ant, mosquito or rodent infestation and need an exterminator, be sure to contact your local Dallas or Fort Worth pest control center:
