Getting Rid of Ants in Toowoomba!
Spring has arrived in spectacular Toowoomba and so have… ANTS!
We all look forward to heading back outdoors to enjoy the pleasures of spring, where the sun is brightly shining, the trees are in their element and the flowers are blossoming. Toowoomba is a hive of activity at this wonderful time of year.
The pesky little ants are back and in numbers! During winter you may have noticed less ant trails around your kitchen areas, or even noticed less ants biting at the toes of kids playing outside, but they have since made a return and we are here to help!
How? Getting Rid of Ants!
One of the greatest and most effective methods for getting rid of ants is to try and prevent them in the first place. Ants are coming into your home in search of a food source so the key is to make your home as uninviting as possible for them.
Try adopting some of the various measures to minimise your risk of invasion:
- Tie up & take out the trash regularly
- Sugar, honey and lollies in closed containers
- Keep cupboards clean and free from food scraps
- Pick up any lollies the kids may have dropped on the ground
- Clean up spills – including underneath sauce bottles in cupboards
- Clear out crumbs from toasters, under the microwave and on bench tops
- Keep gutters and storm drains free of debris
- Remove any pet bowls which may be left out
- Seal entry points such as; doors and windows
- Keep trash bags sealed and in closed garbage bins
- Keep trees and shrubs trimmed back from your house
- Watch for new ant mounds or nests around your home
