How to Get Rid of Ants

There are many species of ants, but they all have a few things in common. First, they are attracted to food, especially sugary foods. Second, they can easily find their way indoors, even if you think your home is sealed up tight. To get rid of ants, you must eliminate the factors that are attracting them and seal up the entry points they are using to get in.

Here are some steps you can take to get rid of ants:

  1. Remove food sources– Ants are attracted to food, so the first step in getting rid of them is to remove their food source. Keep your kitchen clean, and make sure food is stored in airtight containers. Also, make sure you are not feeding your pets in the kitchen and that all pet food is stored in airtight containers.
  2. Seal up entry points– Ants are tiny and can easily find their way into your home through the tiniest of cracks. To keep them out, you must seal up any entry points. Use caulk to seal up cracks and crevices in your home, paying close attention to areas around windows and doors. Also, make sure that all screens are intact and that your doors have weather stripping.
  3. Take out the trash– Ants are scavengers and will try to get into your trash if they can. To keep them out, make sure your trash cans are sealed up and that you take out the trash on a regular basis.
  4. Call a professional– If you have tried all of the above and are still dealing with an ant infestation, it’s time to call a professional. At Adams Exterminating Company, we offer effective ant control services in Denton and the surrounding areas. Our highly trained technicians can help you eliminate your ant problem and keep them out in the future.

What Are the Signs of an Ant Infestation?

Ants are small and can be hard to see, especially if there are only a few of them. However, if you have an ant infestation, you will start to see them everywhere. In addition to seeing ants, there are a few other signs that you might have an infestation.

For example, if you see small piles of dirt or wood shavings, you might have a carpenter ant infestation. If you see tiny red ants, you might have a fire ant infestation. If you see ants with wings, you might have a flying ant infestation. Finally, if you see a trail of ants, you might have an infestation.

Our FAQ

Have questions? We are here to help. Still have questions or can't find the answer you need? Give us a call at 972-301-2166 today!

  • Do you offer pest control to businesses?
    Yes, we offer both residential and commercial pest control. We will work with the needs of your business to ensure that pests are not a problem. Furthermore, we understand the State of Texas’s Health and Safety Codes when it comes to pesticide use and pest control.
  • How long do I have to stay out of my home or property after treatment is performed?
    In situations where you have to be out of the property during and after treatment (flea treatment, roach clean-out service, or for health reasons, etc.), we recommend that you stay away until all products have completely dried. This is usually approximately two to four hours depending on conditions, after which time it is completely safe to re-enter the property.
  • What type of payment options do you accept?
    We accept cash, check or credit card. We do ask that you pay at the time of service. Many of our customers put a credit card on file with our office. It is stored securely in our system and only charges AFTER the service is rendered.
  • I have a baby/toddler… is it safe to have treatment?
    While the products we use are toxic to insects, they pose almost no serious risk to people when used properly. However, it is always advisable to be careful when using chemicals around small children, including pesticides. If you have a small child, we recommend staying away from the treatment area while the service is being performed and then wait until the product has dried.
