How to get rid of ants?
How can I get rid of ants in my house?… is one of the most common homeowner questions. Well, you could use insecticide sprays, but that really is just a quick-fix “solution” that isn’t going to get the heart of your ant problem. Unless you treat the nest, the queen will continue to spawn more six-legged devils, replenishing the colony faster than you can replace those cans of bug spray. If you really want to hit ants where they hurt, you’re going to have to find that nest and destroy it!
Obviously, the easiest way to identify an ant infestation is to actually see those little buggers with your own eyes. Usually, you’ll spot them trailing to or from food sources in your home. If you follow the trail, you can usually track them back to an entry point that, oftentimes, leads to an outside nest somewhere on your property. That said, some ant species prefer setting up camp inside your home, living inside your walls or other hard-to-find places, making nests much harder to find.
