Ants – Mind the Gap

Excluding ants from entering your home is another important step in stopping these unwanted invaders. Common pest entry points include poorly sealed doors, windows, and plumbing and utility penetrations. A good rule of thumb is, if you can see light from the outside while you are standing inside, there is enough of a gap for ants to enter. Many of these access points can be corrected by replacing worn out weather stripping on doors and windows, or by using an appropriate sealant to fill other gaps. However, failing to identify or correctly seal all access points may still give ants free access to forage and nest inside your home.
