As it starts to warm up in the Spring (or even late winter) ants will start to become more active in their nests. Some will even venture out onto the snow if it’s sunny enough.
After four or five days of above freezing temperatures (+5 c / +41 f) you could start to see ants inside your home.
At the first sign of ants in or around your home you can start to take action:
- Identify the entry points (where they’re coming in)
- Identify the attractants (why they came in)
- Clean up entry points and areas of attractant (using Windex or any strong smelling cleaner)
- Place bait at entry points

Remember: There is never just one.
