Ant Control: Tips To Keep Your Home Ant-Free

Ant Pest Control Brisbane

Battling the endless march of ants into our homes is a problem many of us face, especially in the warmer months. From the kitchen counter to the bathroom floor, these tiny invaders find their way into every nook and cranny, searching for food and water. Don’t worry, we are here to help.

Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control, your go-to Brisbane pest control experts, are here with some handy tips to keep your home ant-free and your peace of mind intact.

Understanding Your Antagonist

Ants are social insects, meaning if you see one, there’s likely a whole colony not far behind. They’re attracted to anything sweet, sticky, or just plain edible. Crumbs on the floor? A drop of juice on the counter? That’s a feast in ant-world. And once they find a food source, they’re not shy about coming back for more.

Keep It Clean

The first line of defense is cleanliness. Regularly wiping down surfaces, vacuuming, and keeping food in airtight containers can make a big difference. Don’t forget about pet food bowls, which can be a buffet for ants. Regularly clean the area around your pet’s eating spot and consider elevating the bowls off the ground.

Seal the Deal

Ants can squeeze through the tiniest of gaps. Inspect your home for any cracks or openings in walls, floors, and especially around doors and windows. Sealing these entry points can significantly reduce the number of ants that find their way into your home.

Natural Repellents

Before reaching for chemical ant killers, consider natural alternatives. Many household items can deter ants. For example, vinegar, lemon juice, or peppermint oil wiped across entry points can act as a natural barrier. Cinnamon, coffee grounds, and even chalk lines are known to discourage ants from crossing.
