If you are concerned that that you and your family might be at risk from an ant infestation (link to ant infestation page), there are some tips you can try to deter ants. The below tips can help you keep your home ant free, or make sure your infestation doesn’t grow.

Most ants only enter your home in search for food. You usually find ants in kitchen cupboards or areas where food is kept as they are attracted to anything that’s sweet and sticky.

Follow these tips to make sure you don’t leave temptation in their path:

  • Always cover food – who knows where that ant has been before it crawls across your food!
  • Clean food and liquid spills immediately
  • Clean food debris from under kitchen appliances
  • Make sure all garbage cans are tightly sealed
  • Keep compost piles enclosed and covered
  • Put away pet food as soon as your pet has finished eating

You can also help prevent Ants entering your home by sealing access points such as cracks and crevices in door and window frames.
