Ant Season – Control Ant Home Entry

Home » Uncategorized » Ant Season – Control Ant Home Entry

While we have already spent some time providing tips on how to prevent invasions and practice the best ant control services at your own at home, there is also another target area and route of entry for ants that we have seen many residential clients have a problem with this season: indoor plants.  Yes, it may seem obvious when we mention it, but often times people do not think to give a plant a look over before purchasing it, potting it, or digging it up from the outdoors themselves.

When plants are transported inside, it is one of the easiest ways for ants to enter a home or even an office.  Greenhouses and other stores that sell plants can often find themselves with an ant problem, and once various items are purchased, this problem can be transferred into the customer’s home.

So, what can you do to practice additional ant control?  For starters, you can scope out the plants at the destination you are considering buying them from, make sure there are no cracks or holes in the pot where ants could have sneaked in, and confirm that your plants are pest-free when bringing them in from somewhere outdoors such as your patio or garden.

These quick tips could keep anywhere from several ants to an entire colony out of your home!  However, should you find an ant invasion or other insect problem indoors, do not hesitate to give us a call for immediate residential or commercial pest control services!
