Are you experiencing an ant problem in your home? Ants are one of the most common pest problems reported by residents of the Gold Coast, Brisbane, and the Sunshine Coast. Fortunately, there are a few DIY methods you can try to get rid of ants from your property. Here are a few tips we got from our friends at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control.
1. Remove Excess Food
Do you have leftover food scraps and crumbs around your home? Ants invade homes looking for food, and if you have it sitting around everywhere then you are certainly making yourself an easy target for ants! Try to clean up any crumbs or remaining food scraps after mealtime and you will likely notice an immediate impact on the number of ants you find crawling around inside your home. Ants also love mess, so be sure to keep your floors and benches clean!
2. Seal Entry Points
Ants get into your home via entry points. These are usually gaps in your home that can be under windows, doors or cracks in walls. By sealing up these entry points, ants will have no easy way of getting into your house anymore! Take a look around your house for any gaps, cracks or holes that you might think ants could be using to get in. Often you will actually see a congregation of ants around the entry point! If you find any entry points be sure to seal them up to stop any more ant invasions.
3. Clear Ant Nests
If you find an ant nest on your property then there is no doubt that this is the source of your ant problems. Getting rid of the ant nest will likely result in the ant colony moving away and not bothering you and your family in your home anymore. Always take extreme caution when doing this. We always advise you to contact the professionals here at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control to help.
