During the spring, odorous house ants can commonly be seen marching across kitchen counters in search of leftover food particles. Outside, the imported red fire ant can be seen up-ending the earth. No matter where ants will end up at your home, it is critical that prevention methods start now.
During the winter, ants will warmth within deep soil or under rocks and other stationary items. During this time, the entrance to their colonies will be closed as they huddle in clusters to maintain body heat. During the first days of spring, ants will begin emerging from their dormancy in search of food sources.
This can be particularly problematic for homeowners that haven’t been regularly cleaning their kitchen calories, leaving crumbs or food debris. In the event this is happening, roaches and rodents may already be inside your home. Keeping your kitchen clean will help deter ants from seeking asylum in your home.
However, this particular knowledge of the habits of ants during the winter can help determine the proper prevention and elimination of ant colonies in and around their home before it’s too late. Utilizing an ant treatment on your yard and around your home now can help ensure ants don’t have easy entry inside.
To help deter red imported fire ants from overtaking your lawn, or odorous house ants from overtaking your kitchen, prevention needs to start now. Waiting until the ants emerge will make it much harder to remove them. By taking the necessary precautions now, ant prevention can be possible.
