Why Do Ants Invade Your Home?
Ants invade your home looking for the life essentials – food, water, and shelter. Since ants are so small, it’s easy for them to fit through small cracks in screens, doors, foundations, and more.
Because ants are looking for food, they are most commonly found in the kitchen. No matter if your kitchen is clean or dirty. As a professional ant control company we hear it all the time, “why do I have ants in my kitchen if my house is clean?”
Ants have a keen sense of smell. They will find food crumbs if they are left out but they also are attracted to soda spills (or other sugary beverages). If they aren’t completely cleaned up, you may start to see ants swarm the area.
Ants travel in large colonies that multiply fast! It is best to stop an ant infestation before it even begins. In order to do that you need to know the signs of an ant infestation in your home.

Signs of an Ant Infestation
Live Ants: Ants don’t travel on their own. If you see a live ant in your home, odds are there are more. A dead giveaway you need a pest inspection.
Ant Nests: If you notice an excessive amount of ant nests or ant holes near your home, these colonies might start to find ways into your home.
Ant Pathways: Ants lay down a pheromone in their trail that attracts other ants to the area. Ever notice that ants all use the same path when they enter your home? Remove the ants and wipe down the pathway to remove the scent.
Rotting Wood: Carpenter ants like to live in and feed off rotting wood. Keeping stacked wood near your home makes it more susceptible to ant infestations.
