Ants are one of the most common pests found in Utah. Most ants are harmless and stay outside, but some can find their way indoors. Here are some ways that ants find their way into your home.
Keep bushed shrubs or trees trimmed away from the house they are not touching the structure. Plants touching the home create an easy “bridge” for ants to get inside.
Ants forage for food indoors and outdoors. Keep ants out by cleaning up all food spills. This includes pet food; ants love pet food. So make sure your garage and porch area are free from spilled food as well.
Ants are very small and can squeeze through any cracks and crevices. Sealing up these entrances on the outside of your home can go a long way in keeping ants out. Make sure caulking around windows and utility pipes is still in good shape.
