Did you know that ants are the #1 "nuisance pest" in the United States?? Ants aren't only a nuisance at picnics, but they can enter your Kansas City home through the smallest gaps in their search for food. So, it doesn't really matter how new your home is, how well it was built or where it is located -- ants could invade at any time!
Ant control is something that 'do-it-yourselfers' often try to handle on their own. But, if you add up all the time and money that most DIY'ers spend trying to get the pests out, it usually turns out that it would have been less expensive and a lot easier if they would have just hired a pest professional to handle it correctly from the start.
Getting rid of ant in the house should really begin with a professional inspection. A professional pest control company, like Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control of Kansas City, Lawrence, & Topeka, will be able to handle the problem with care and expertise. Not only can a professional help you figure out the root cause of your ant problem, but they can also use professional strength treatments that are not available to the public.
Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control can use treatments with non-detectable odor that pose no threat to the health of your family. So, you can continue to live in your Lawrence home while they are treating the ants in your house. Some treatments are sprayed in the trouble spots inside of your home and other are used around the outside foundation of your house. Using these techniques, Catch-It can usually rid your home of ants within a week.
Homeowners in the Kansas City, Lawrence, Topeka area and around the country are quickly realizing that having the help of a professional ant exterminator is the best way to go. A professional treatment will save you time and money as well as give you added peace-of-mind -- knowing that your ant invasion was handled correctly.
Ants are just like any other living thing -- they want food and water. If an ant can easily find those essentials inside of your Topeka house, he'll call his friends and that can lead to an insect invasion. But, you're not completely helpless. You can do yourself a favor and make sure that you quickly clean up food and beverage spills. Plus, be sure to take out your trash regularly and rinse out any cans or jars if they will be sitting in the trash or recycling bins.
Don't neglect the outside of you home either. Make sure that your windows and doors are properly sealed and regularly clean out your rain gutters to help avoid moisture build up inside your walls. Another good idea may be to trim trees and shrubs that are touching your home -- this might take away an easy access route for insects.
Unfortunately, even taking precautions won't stop all ant invasions. So, if you do find ants in the house, your first step should be to call a professional ant exterminator, like Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control of Kansas City, Lawrence, & Topeka. Catch-It Wildlife can usually get this type of problem taken care of inside of a week with very affordable rates.
