Why Do Ants Attack Your Food

The why

If ants are a problem in your home, there is usually an easy solution. Ants don’t usually set up colonies indoors, but they will settle near your home and invade if there is food easily accessible. Ants are typically seeking perishables, sweet foods like candy, and grains such as breadcrumbs.

What can you do?

A great way to keep ants out is to store foods in airtight containers like jars or plastic bins. This is an effective way to not only keep ants out but also to add a decorative touch to your kitchen.

Another simple way to keep ants away is to regularly clean up spills and crumbs from the dining room area and the kitchen. This can be especially important if there are children or pets in the home.

If you are building a new home or redoing yours, Ideal Partners can install Thermal-Acoustical-Pest Control (TAP), which is an all-natural home insulation designed to prevent ants, cockroaches, and other pests from entering your house. It is also fire retardant and insulates better than traditional products.

If the ant problem persists, another option is to eliminate the ant colonies that are near your home. Ants settle close to your home for easy access to the food inside and there are many products that can be purchased at your local hardware store to quickly end this problem.

You can also call Ideal Partners for professional pest control and prevention. Our licensed professionals will conduct a comprehensive inspection to determine where the pests are coming from and develop and implement a program to make the problem go away for good and keep those pests from coming back.

So don’t let ants and other bothersome insects trample your summer plans! Give Ideal Partners a call and we’ll do the dirty work for you.
