Keep Up with Home Repairs to Prevent Ants

Posted By Garry Larson     April 19, 2022    


There are a lot of things that are going to attract ants into your home. They like some of the food that you have in the home and will bring all of their friends over to have some fun. They will find all of the cracks and holes to get in as well and make this their new home. The good news is that there are several steps that you can take to prevent ants getting into the home, but one thing to consider is to do home repairs on the home as well.


The first thing to consider here is to repair any of the water leaks around the home. This will include the leaky faucets and leaky pipes that may be present as well. Pests are going to be able to access indoor leaks for the water that they need for survival. Carpenter ants also like to nest in the soft and damp wood. They could make their home in the area of the kitchen sink, the shower, or the bath rub if you have an ongoing leak that has led to some water damaged wood.


Another thing to watch out for is any wooden structures around the home that may be rotting. Carpenter ants in particular are going to love to build nests in damp wood, which means that you will need to repair these or get them removed as soon as possible. Clearing the dead wood from the property will help you to keep the ants as far from the home as possible. And if you have a wooden deck or fence that is struggling, you should consider fixing them or removing them from the property.


You need to keep up with the maintenance on all of the wooden surfaces around your home. This will make it harder for the ants to find a place they can call home. Do not let it start to rot and keep it maintained to avoid these ants finding a home right next to your home and causing an infestation inside when they notice there is food in there.


Keeping up with some of the maintenance around your home will be an important step in preventing ants and making sure that your home is safe and secure from ants for as long as possible. If you already have a problem with an ant infestation in your home, then it is important for you to look at ant control and prevention in Seattle to help you out. These professionals will be able to step in and provide you with the help that you need with the ants in your home.
