There is no reason that you should be dealing with ants in the kitchen or other areas of the house. This problem can be easily fixed so that you can enjoy your living space without the insects.

Prevention is KeyPest Control Ant Removal

Getting rid of the ant infestation is more than just killing the population. It is also essential that you take a proactive approach to eliminating the things that are drawing the insects into your home. The ants are likely coming around because they are looking for food and water, so you need to get rid of anything that they might like.

Wipe down the counters several times a day to get rid of crumbs and food particles. Also, it is a good idea to clean the floors daily to sweep up any spills that might have landed underneath the table.

Natural Ant Control

There are several natural methods that you might try to get rid of the ant problem. Use Borax combined with powdered sugar, and sprinkle it in areas where you see the ants in your home. They are attracted to the sugar, and then the Borax kills them. The ants will carry the bait back to the nest to kill off the whole colony.

Be careful though! If you have kids or pets in the house, then this natural ant control method isn’t a good idea. Another safer option is to spray vinegar onto the cracks and baseboards where you see the ants. The vinegar helps to remove the trail that the ants are following. It is essential to use this method several times a day.

Sometimes these do-it-yourself solutions aren’t effective enough to get rid of the ant infestation.
