HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – If you are fighting pests in your home, here are some strategies to save money to keep ants away.
House ants – Be sure to seal containers containing sugar. Also, quickly clean up any spills such as honey, maple syrup and sugar. Domestic ants will explore anything that contains sugar and will take over completely.
Carpenter Ants – These pests generally pass through wood that may have been damaged by water. You will pay to fix any leakage around your home as quickly as possible.
Be sure to closely monitor your showers, bathtubs and windows. Also, try to test ant baits. It may take some time to find one that works for your home, but it will prevent ants from invading your space.
Finally, clean the indoor plants, especially the indoor ones. Aphids are insects that spend their lives in plants and secrete a clear and sweet liquid that ants love. Also, consider placing insect control peaks in the soil of your plants.
