Why do I have ants?

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.

Plants

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.

Food

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.

Exclusion

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.

Thorn Pest Solutions ant control in Utah. The Thorn Pest Solutions Approach

Thorn pest professionals first work to identify what species of ant are invading your home or business, as well as points of entry into the building and food sources that may be attracting ants. It's essential to answer these questions before doing anything else so we can create an effective, targeted treatment plan.

We train our pest experts to understand the biology, entomology, ecology, and chemistry involved to answer these questions. The temptation to try and save money by handling the situation yourself is understandable. However, if not treated correctly, ants can cause severe damage to buildings, costing you more money and time in the long run. The presence of ants may also attract other pests to your home or business. In short, when it comes to pests, you want to have professionals involved.

    I have been using Thorn Pest Control for several years now. They are so easy to work with and quick to respond and, most of the time, easy to schedule. They’re popular! What can I say?
