Ants are among the most common household pests.
Here are ways to keep them from invading your home.
Check popular ant hangouts, especially kitchens.
Other hotspots include bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, basements, inside walls, and around air conditioning and heating units.
Reduce moisture and standing water around your home.
Repair leaky pipes, ensure outside gutters and downspouts work properly, and use dehumidifiers in damp spaces.
Limit food sources by tidying up often.
Wipe down counters, sweep floors, store food in sealed containers, keep any pet bowls clean, and take out the garbage regularly.
Block off access points by sealing any cracks and crevices in your home’s exterior with caulk.
