If you’re like many South Florida homeowners, you’re probably familiar with the sight of sugar ants parading in and around your kitchen. While oftentimes harmless, living with an ant infestation of any kind can be a major nuisance.
So, what can you do?
If you’re tired of letting pests live rent-free in your home, check out these helpful ant control tips for keeping ants out of your kitchen.
Cover Your Food
One of the most effective ways to cut off an ant colony’s food source is to cover your food.
For instance, if you have a plate of cookies sitting out on your counter, be sure to cover it with plastic wrap or move them to a secure container. Use chip clips to secure opened packaging and invest in plastic Ziploc bags for added protection.
Trash Can Lids
Ants are natural scavengers, so it may be a challenge to implement an ant control tactic to keep ants out of your trash can and empty food containers.
To increase your ant control efforts, remember to put a lid on your kitchen trash can. Not only will this simple task keep ants at bay, but it can also keep your kitchen from smelling bad.
Clean Up Spills
Whether it’s crumbs or a spill, it’s important that you act fast to prevent an ant infestation. Clean up all spills as soon as they happen to eliminate a potential food source.
