Ants start to make their way into your homes once the wet season starts, since they are looking for a dry place to live. Having them around is a health risk to you and your family, especially if you have children. Some homeowners use things normally found at home to kill ants such as boiling water, vinegar, dishwashing soap and detergent. Probably the simplest and safest way is to use duct tape and sticking it to the line of ants walking on the floor or wall of your house. Although this may kill ants for a certain period of time, the effect will never last long.
It would still be best to ensure cleanliness in your home. Leaving garbage lying around or leaving food openly on the tables and kitchen sink is a definite invitation for ants to come into your home.
Even though homeowners still try to use their own simple ways to extricate ants, remember that these are pests that will continue to come to your home uninvited if they are not dealt with properly. This is why some people delegate this task to a professional pest control service. You simply call the pest control service company and they do the work for you.
