3 Ant Prevention Tips

3 Ant Prevention Tips

Ants are one of the most common forms of pests in South East Queensland. They just love coming into our homes and outdoor spaces. This is because these places often provide ants with shelter and a reliable food source. Fortunately, there are a few different things you can try to keep ants away from your home. In this latest blog update from the team at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control, we will be sharing 3 tips for ant prevention. Let’s get started.

Keep Your Spaces Clean Of Food Scraps

The most common cause for any type of pest to invade your home is if they can find a reliable food source, and ants are no different. Food scraps and food crumbs provide a stable food source for ants, and one that doesn’t involve crossing paths with any dangerous predators. If your home is scattered with food scraps and excess food waste then it will become very attractive to the ant population in your local area. This is why we often find ants in our kitchen and around outdoor dining spaces like BBQ areas. If you notice a build-up of ants in these spaces, be sure to try to keep them clean of food scraps to deter ant invasions.

Look Out For & Fix Any Water Leaks

Another very common reason for ants to take up residence in your home is if they can find a good source of water. Leaks are a very popular source of water for ants. If your home has any leaks be sure to fix them before they become a reliable source of water for your local ant population.

Seal Any Entry Points

In order to get into your home, ants need to find an entry point, and that is very rarely through the front door! More commonly, ants will enter through various gaps and cracks throughout the exterior of your home. Sealing these up is one of the best ways to prevent ant invasion in your home. Take a walk around the outside of your home to look for any possible entry points for ants and get them sealed up.
