There are many different threats to protect your home and your family from and they come in all different shapes and sizes. Some of these threats include natural disasters, criminal activity and pests coming into your Eufaula Oklahoma home. The latter is the most common threat that will affect most homeowners. While termite and rat infestations do happen, they are not as likely as other tiny visitors coming into your home. The most common household pest that humans will ever come into contact with is the ant. Ants can easily gain access into your home and cause a great deal of annoyance and even contaminate our food.
Why are Tiny Ants in My House?
Ants target homes due to the shelter and food that they provide. They have the ability to squeeze through the smallest crack or crevice they can find on the exterior of a home to get inside. Most homeowners that believe their home is tightly sealed up are usually wrong and end up finding out the hard way. Once inside of your home ants will immediately begin searching for a reliable food or water source. These areas usually include your kitchen, bathroom or laundry room. Ants travel in large numbers, making it difficult to remove them from your home; especially if they are not discovered immediately upon arrival.
How to Get Rid of Ant Trail Scents
One amazing trait that ants’ possess is their ability to leave an invisible scented trail that leads from food to nest. This invisible scented trail is most important to the rest of the ant colony that is now living in your home, as it leads them to and from the reliable food source that has been discovered. Leaving leftovers and dirty dinner plates out, crumbs on the floor or even sweet drinks out on the counter is a great way to attract ants into your kitchen. Ants have an extremely strong sense of smell, so if there is even one crumb left out, they will find it.
