Ants can be a nuisance for many homeowners in North Texas. The last thing you want is an ant mound in your yard. Many colonies contain thousands of ants and can become a widespread problem if not properly treated.
There are many varieties of ants. Some ants will require different treatments, having expert pest control is going to be your best bet for controlling ant issues quickly.
Here are a few tips to help minimize ants around your home:
1. Make sure to wipe down counters, clean up spills and sweep up crumbs in your kitchen area. It just takes one ant to find something sweet, greasy, or salty and then they tell all their friends.
2. Keep your bathroom as damp free as possible. Check for leaky pipes and under the sinks for moisture accumulation.
3. If you have wood piles, logs, old bricks in your yard ants tend to make those into ant mounds. Keep logs at least 20 feet away from your home along with any other piles you may have.
4. Ants tend to make nest under sidewalks and driveways. Limiting any standing water near gutters and repairing broken sprinkler heads can help eliminate an attraction for ants.
