If you’ve been trying to rid your home of ants, you’ve probably already learned that it can be a losing battle. In the world of pests, ants are among the most elusive and difficult to eliminate. Even if they don’t sting those who live there or cause structural damage, their presence is decidedly unpleasant. One thing’s for sure: They aren’t going to show themselves the door.
How Do Ants Get into Homes?
Ants are wily creatures. Even large ants can get into homes through the tiniest of cracks. Even if you are sure that your home is adequately sealed, ants will prove you wrong every time. What’s worse is that they can make their nests just about anywhere, and when a colony is threatened, it can pick up, move and settle down elsewhere in the home at a moment’s notice. Just because a colony is gone from one part of the house doesn’t mean it’s gone for good. Many ants lay scent trails containing pheromones that allow their cohorts to follow them to the next location.
