Ants are one of the most exasperating insects to infest homes Gainesville, Tampa and throughout Northern Florida. Actually they're probably annoyed by homeowners everywhere. So what are those little black ants you are seeing and how do you get rid of them. Read on.
The most likely culprit would be pavement ants and while they are not dangerous, they are nuisance pests. As their name would suggest, these ants are generally found nesting along driveways and walkways and though they generally live outdoors, they will come inside to forage for food.
A single ant foraging around in your kitchen doesn’t necessarily raise an alarm but when you spot an ant trail winding its way across the floor and up a cabinet that is definitely more concerning. Getting rid of ants should begin with a proactive approach. Try implementing these tips to prevent ants from taking over your home:
Keep counters, floors and pantries clear of crumbs
Store food in well-sealed containers
Regularly trim shrubs and trees so that they do not provide a “bridge” to your home
Seal cracks, gaps and other openings in your foundation and around your doors and windows
