3 Ant Control Tips to Keep These Pests Out of Your Home This Summer, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

When summer rolls around, common household pests like ants come out from their winter hiding places and try to make their way into people’s homes. Rather than letting these insects take over your property and run off with your food supply, the ant control specialists at Guarantee Pest Control in Lexington, KY, recommend taking the necessary precautions at the beginning of the season to keep your abode free of pests this year.

Here, these residential pest control experts will recommend three ways to keep ants out of your house this summer:

  • Take Out The Garbage: Just because your food scraps are inside a trash can doesn't mean ants can't get to them. One of the best ant control tactics is to take out your garbage as often as possible. At the very least, set aside your organic waste and throw it away outside daily.

  • ant controlStore Food In Containers: Instead of placing your food out in the open or leaving snacks in their plastic packaging, Lexington’s ant control experts suggest keeping all edible items in airtight containers. This will not only keep bugs out of your food, but it will also prevent them from detecting it in the first place.

  • Clean Regularly: Every day, you drop a few crumbs on the floor or spill a little bit of juice on the counter. If this isn't cleaned up by you, it will attract pests like ants quickly and encourage them to stay. To prevent pests from entering your home in search of food, sweep regularly, mop your floors, and wipe down all surfaces with disinfectant.

And if ants do take over your home, call Lexington’s pest extermination experts. Guarantee Pest Control’s board-certified technicians will rid your home of these and other insects in an efficient and safe manner.
