While the Ants in the Pants game might be fun for a family game night, you probably don’t want these nuisance critters to inside your home. Ants can enter into your home through the tiniest of cracks, and as scavengers, they’re constantly looking for food to carry back to their colony. They are omnivores which means they will eat just about anything, including almost all the food in your home. However, here are a few tips to avoid an ant invasion and keep your home ant-free:
- Make sure there are no crumbs, spills or food waste in your pantry or cabinets.
- Keep your fruits and veggie in the fridge.
- Be diligent about cleaning up quickly after spills on your floors and counters.
- Fix any leaky pipes and remove any damp wood.
