Benjamin Franklin said, â€œhouseguests, like fish, smell after three days.â€ Weâ€™d like to say that ants are one of the least welcome houseguests. Donâ€™t even give them three days to take a stronghold. During the warmer months in Tulsa, OK, ants are on the prowl, looking for food and water sources. By the time you see them on your counter, they could have a nest with hundreds more under your house. We recommend professional pest management to identify and treat a home with an ant infestation, but prevention is better than cure. Here are five tips to help keep pests out of your home.
Keep your home clean
Clean up moisture and damp areas
Keep ants outdoors.
Avoid barrier sprays
Correctly identify ants in your Tulsa home.
Natural solutions can work, but if you have a colony living in your home, it could take weeks for all signs of the pests to leave. Prevent pests by using natural remedies, but if you have an infestation, donâ€™t try to deal with it on your own. Professional pest control technicians can help.
