Ants come out of nowhere and into your home. Suddenly, you wake one morning to find there are trails of the little six-legged pests wandering through your house as if they belong there. Since it is still warm outside, you begin to wonder what they are looking for inside your home that they can’t find outside in the growing earth. Would you believe the scavengers are looking for an easy food source in the crumbs you inadvertently drop, the spills you leave, and the oil or grease that splashes from your pans while you cook? Any of those items would make a feast for the hungry creatures.
You may believe you can conquer the ant problem on your own, and you may even try it month after month. Save yourself the frustration and the cost of cleaning supplies and call for help. An ant pest control Salem OR professional understands how to remove the ants at the source of the problem – in the nest. Although you may only see a few hundred of the creepy crawlies strolling through your house, you can be sure there are thousands, if not millions, of hungry mouths waiting back in the nest.
Every time you squash a bug, you are leaving a free meal for the ants because they collect the dead and take them back to the colony. Killing the ants will only invite them to continue investigating your home for further meals. Instead, sprinkle cinnamon across their trails and near the ant hills you discover because ants hate cinnamon.
Ants are essential for a clean and healthy environment, but when they get into your home, they are considered to be pests. Keep ants out of your house with the help of a pest control service, or you may fight them for many long months – and the ants often win.
