Ants roaming inside your home or business is not only annoying, but can also lead to ruined food and damaged property or result in a stinging bite. Permanently eradicating ants requires a little knowledge, some patience, and targeted removal tactics.
The first step to reclaiming your home or office space is identifying the type of ant infestation. The two main types of infestation include ants that live outside the building but forage inside, or ants that both forage and nest inside. Some ants live outside most of the year, but come indoors to search for food or shelter from inclement weather. The method you use to effectively get rid of problematic ants depends on the kind of infestation and ant species you’re dealing with.
