While there are many different species of ants, the most challenging to eliminate are those that wander inside our homes in search of food and moisture. Ants build their nests both indoors and out, where they live together in large colonies. Certain species of ants produce swarmers, which look similar to termites. Your home has many areas that make the perfect indoor hiding place for ants. These insects are typically found behind window frames, underneath cabinets and in spaces behind walls. Some of these areas are hidden, making it difficult to eliminate ants at their source.

Many homeowners throughout Long Island fail to realize they must eliminate not only the ants they can see but the egg-laying queens, as well. Locating the nest and queens is key to reducing the number of ants inside your home. If ants are coming in from outdoors, it is important to locate the nest before deciding on which type of pest control to use. When ants are nesting outdoors, they often enter your home in trails along baseboards and in cracks in door frames. Outdoor anthills may be in clear view or they can be hidden under piles of leaves, wood, mulch or gravel.

If you find ants inside your home, you can purchase and control baits that may help reduce their numbers. These baits work best when placed between their nest and their source of food. It is normal to see a larger number of ants around the bait for the first several days. Ant populations will begin to decline once ants feed on the insecticides in the baits and carry it back to the colony. When ants have a nest outdoors, liquid insecticidal drenches are often an effective way to eliminate them. These insecticides contain active ingredients such as carbaryl that kills these pests.

Once you have treated your home with insecticides, you must seal all gaps and cracks where ants could come inside. Caulk around windows, plumbing pipes, doors and thresholds where ants can enter your home. Ants can be difficult to control, even with our best efforts. If you are still seeing large numbers of ants in and around your home, it may be necessary to hire a professional pest control service. These companies are experienced in controlling many different types of pests and have access to stronger insecticides than homeowners can purchase themselves.
