Ant control can be difficult, but there are some things you should know about how ants’ behavior can lead to big headaches for you and your home. Ants can enter through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances in the kitchen pantry or storeroom areas.
Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source.
Colonies can number up to 300,000 to 500,000, and whole colonies can uproot and relocate from returning. Also, home remedies don’t account for the fact that different kinds of ant infestations require different treatments
They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations.
