Making your home less attractive to ants

Prevention of odorous ants

When ants are found, one important fact is that complete eradication is key. If you just remove the ants you see and not the source, they will come back and show up in the same place(s).

Resist the urge to kill the ants you see – they can be utilized to carry bait back to the nest which will eventually kill the whole colony. Contact Quest Pest Control for best practices on ant removal!

Practicing good sanitation practices is one of the best ways of prevention. Crumbs, spills and garbage being cleaned up around the kitchen is essential. Store sweet foods in tightly sealed containers or ziplock bags. Keep all surfaces including floors and walls clean!
