And Commonly Infested Areas
You’re not alone if you’ve ever found ants crawling across your bathroom floor or kitchen counter. Ants often enter home during warm months looking for food and water, making them America’s #1 nuisance pest! If you know your home is infested, you need a pest control treatment right away. Since Florida is usually warm, it’s important to learn about the most common areas in a home for an ant infestation.
Studies show that 96% of kitchens are vulnerable to ants. It’s no surprise that kitchens are considered a favorite hangout for them, they have unlimited food access and the sink provides a great water source. If you don’t stay on top of cleaning up crumbs and spills, you’re inviting ants in!
Bathrooms are highly susceptible to ants due to excess moisture in the environment. Ants like to build nests in damp areas such as under sinks and bathroom tiles. If you don’t occasionally inspect your bathroom closely and keep it tidy, you will be sure to find some ants crawling around.
OTHER ANT HIDEOUTS
Other areas in your home can also be common hideouts for ants. They easily find their way inside even through the smallest cracks. These common areas include inside of your walls, attic, AC and heating units, bedrooms, basements or crawl space. There’s almost nowhere they can’t go!
