Nr. 1 pest infesting our homes?…ANTS!

It wouldn’t be summer without ants, right? Well, sadly, many types are making their rounds. The common pavement ant, usually found on sidewalks, can easily take their exploration endeavor into your house.

The small pharaoh ant can carry contamination in their search for sweet foods, and the fire ant, often found in warmer climates, can leave you with a nasty bite.

Ants are the kings of the cracks, so you’ll want to be extra attentive about crack-filling and on particular lookout for carpenter ants.

These types of ants can come into your home by burrowing through even the most robust wood structures, and their bite can also be excruciating.

Getting into wood outside your home makes it more likely they’ll target the wood inside next. To stop them in their tracks, an ideal pest removal method would be to start by clearing out any decayed wood and branches from your area.

This includes stacking firewood away from the side of your house, keeping food well-sealed, controlling the humidity in your home, and not leaving any crumbs around!

If you’re not sure of the humidity levels in your home, grab a ThermoPro TP50 Digital Hygrometer Indoor Thermometer Room Thermometer and Humidity Gauge with Temperature Monitor from Amazon!
