When it comes to ants, they can be added to your list of most annoying guests especially when they become permanent residents at your home. The degree of harm that you get from these tiny creatures depends on the type of ants you have. The black ant, which is a common ant, usually don’t cause any harm, and on the other hand, carpenter ants can result in greater damage just like a termite does. No matter the type of ants you have at home, you should stop invading them, and avoid the diseases and any harm caused by them.
When you find ants invaded your home, first of all, you need to identify the ant type, and the places they are living in. If it is the black ant type, you need not worry much as they don’t damage the wood structure. All you need is to find their houses and design a comprehensive process to get rid of them completely.
How can you locate the places where ants are hiding? There might be many ways, but probably the best one is to keep your eye on the captain ants. These ants have the duty of building the colonies and finding and collecting food for the other members. So, you need to carefully monitor their activities; however, you can also through a small piece of bread so that they can take it, and return where they have come from, making it easy for you to locate their houses. Once you become successful in this mission, it is the time to implement the next steps in the ant removal process.
Now, you have found the ant kingdom, and next is to choose the right method that can work best to control the problem, and a popular one is to use liquid baits. The ants come out, and take these baits to their colonies for other members. Your mission is to kill the queen ant as she is responsible for ant growth. If you cleared this mission, the half of the job is done as you can curb the growth of ant colonies further. You will see all the ants dead within a few days, and your ant infestation problem is solved. Usually, the queen ant looks different from other ants, and you can easily spot by her larger size. So, if you spot her anywhere in the home, prefer killing her immediately in order to avoid the ants increase their population.
So, your home is now ant-free, but do you know what invites ants to come and live in your living space? Its the perimeter of your home! You should spend extra time in checking if there are cracks in the walls or windows, and when you find any, repair immediately.
