Spring will be here in less than a month! Here are some tips to prevent spring ant infestations.

1) Seal any cracks and crevices that lead into the home, as ants will find these small spaces and use them as entry points into your home

2) Trim bushes and plants that grow close to or against the house, as these will attract ants, which may then find a way into your house

3) Spray insecticide and scrub around possible entry points for ants into your home.

4) Correct moisture problems around the home, i.e. plumbing, leaky roofs. Pay special attention to wet or rotting wood, as these attract carpenter ants.

5) Paint or seal exposed wood before it comes wet. Remove dead stumps from your property.

Ants are a major problem here in Central Florida as well. Ant proofing a living space is hard work but well worth it.

I had a rough year experiencing pest infestation in my house. I remember I had to pay a good amount of money to get ant pest control. I don't want to happen them again. Thanks for sharing your tips.
