The Problems Indoor Ants Can Cause In Your Home

Once ants move into your home, they can present a number of issues and health risks. To start with, ants are unhygienic. They wander through areas outside and inside your home populated with trash or other bacteria and then track these pathogens around your home, leaving them behind on surfaces or in food storage areas. It is possible to get sick from consuming food contaminated by ants.

Furthermore, ants may bite the individuals in your home. These can leave itchy, uncomfortable bites, but may also trigger allergic reactions, especially in the case of the red imported fire ant. Multiple ant stings may result in the need for medical attention.

Certain types of ants are also incredibly destructive. Carpenter ants will tunnel into the internal wooden structures of your home and create significant problems as they tunnel away at the wood. This can leave you at risk of structural collapse and very costly repairs. Other ant types may get into electrical wiring around your home and cause damage, resulting in fire hazards and damage that needs careful expert repair.

All of these problems that ants can cause are why ant control in your house and ant control in your yard are so important to protect your Orange County home.

The Best Ant Killer Options For DIY Pest Control 

One of the best – and safest – DIY methods for ant control is combining equal parts water and dish soap into a spray bottle. You can apply this directly onto ants to kill them and on the entry points where ants invade your home to deter them from entering. However, while this remedy can kill the ants it comes into contact with, it doesn't target ants that may be hiding further in your home. It also won't control and remove active infestations of ants; only our professionals at Pacific Shore Pest Control can help you with that task.
