Ant traps are an easy and safe solution for getting rid of ants in indoor areas. They contain a substance that attracts ants and takes them back to the nest, eliminating the entire colony. Always follow the instructions on the packaging and place them in areas where you usually see ants.
Ant sprays are a common option for killing ants in outdoor areas, such as on porches, backyards or gardens. If you choose to use a spray or bait, follow the package instructions and use carefully.
5 Regular cleaning:
Keep the house clean and free of crumbs and food debris. Ants are attracted to food and leave a pheromone trail so that other ants can follow them. Cleaning frequently can help break this trail and keep ants away.
6 Continuous process:
Eliminating ants is an ongoing process, especially in areas prone to ant infestations. Maintain good hygiene and regularly check for signs of infestation to help prevent future problems.
