Ants are social creatures and it’s usually worker ants that enter your home in search of food. Keeping your home clean is a good way to discourage them from entering. Cleaning up after cooking, and putting away food promptly after use, are excellent ways to deter them from entering your home.

Ants are also attracted to sources of moisture so make sure you don’t have taps dripping or areas outside where you let water collect. Ants are also attracted to wood, especially rotting wood, which can provide the perfect spot for them to build a nest. Make sure you don’t have any piles of wood lying around outdoors and regularly check for signs of nesting under pots and between pavement cracks. To deter them from entering your home make sure all cracks and crevices are sealed.
