Seal Entry Points

Inspect your home for any cracks, holes, or gaps in the exterior walls and foundation. Ants can enter through the smallest openings, so it’s crucial to seal potential entry points with silicone caulk or another appropriate sealant.

Keep It Clean

Ants are attracted to food and moisture. To make your home less inviting:

  • Wipe up spills immediately, especially sugary substances.
  • Store food in airtight containers.
  • Don’t leave pet food out overnight.
  • Regularly dispose of garbage and use cans with tight-fitting lids.

Eliminate Standing Water

Moisture attracts ants and other pests. Fix leaky pipes, ensure proper drainage outside your home, and consider using a dehumidifier in damp areas like basements or crawl spaces.

Trim Vegetation

Keep tree branches and shrubbery well-trimmed and away from the house. Ants can use these as bridges to enter your home.

Use Natural Repellents

Certain natural substances can deter ants. Try sprinkling cinnamon, peppermint oil, lemon juice, or coffee grounds near entry points and the perimeter of your home.
