Ant Control Tips For Spring


The ants go marching one by one… into your house. As the spring weather starts to warm, it’s common for a Eugene pest control company to start getting more and more calls about these picnic-crashing and kitchen-invading pests. Instead of waiting for the ants to make an appearance in your home, take preventative action now.

To prevent ants from entering your home:

  • Hire a Eugene pest control service to do a home pest inspection and show you the vulnerable spots in your house.
  • Never leave food out in the open for extended periods.
  • Eliminate sources of standing water, such as an unattended indoor leak.
  • Use lidded trashcans.
  • Go over ant trails with water and a mild dish detergent.
  • Keep your yard nicely manicured.
  • Eliminate piles of leaves and yard waste, as those are the perfect areas for ants to nest.
  • Trim back tree branches that overhang your home.
  • Avoid using mulch or a ground cover around the foundation of your home.
  • Seal any cracks along the exterior walls of your home.

If you do find yourself with an ant invasion, call a Eugene pest control company to help you take care of the problem. Choose a Eugene pest control service that is committed to using the safest methods to help you with your ant problems.
