Removing An Ant Infestation

If you have an ant infestation then you need to move it, pronto. The best thing to do is to call your local pest control professionals as they can totally remove the infestation. However, if you want to do it yourself then there are a number of ways of going about this.

The best way involves a number of different tasks. The first thing you want to do is to find the ant colony. This is not too hard, all you have to do is follow the trail of ants back from the food. Generally, the colony will be outside, or at least under your house.  Then you need to seal your house up as best you can. Use some form of silicon to seal any cracks or openings you can find. Then you need to make up a mixture of vinegar and water and put it in a spray bottle. Use this liberally around the entire outside perimeter of your home, especially on any windows or door lintels. Then spray it on all your kitchen surfaces. Once you have done that, go out to the ant colony and pour pure vinegar down into it.

Not only is this method effective, but it doesn’t use any harsh chemicals and it is relatively humane.
