  Amazing Ants
In the United States, there are approximately 700 different ant species. Twenty-five of these species are considered to be household pests. Ants are particularly troublesome when they come indoors and get into foods. Once a few ants come indoors, hundreds more can quickly follow.

Ants do serve an important role in the ecosystem. But, as their colonies grow and multiply, treatment may be necessary.

Rid Your Home of Ants
For virtually every indoor ant problem, eliminating food, water, and other things that attract ants is key. The following tips will help you rid your home of ants:

 Clean up food crumbs and beverage spills. A tiny crumb is enough to attract dozens of ants into your home.
 Keep packaged foods in tightly closed containers.
 Store vegetable oils and shortenings in the refrigerator.
 Store food carefully. Ants can travel down the threads of a screw-top jar. They can easily enter the jar that does not have a rubber gasket or liner.
 Dry out bathtubs and sinks after use.
 Rinse glass, metal, plastic, and paper food containers before throwing them in the garbage or recycling bins.
 Clean all kitchen surfaces, and sweep and vacuum often.
 If you have pets, make sure to clean up any pet food that may have spilled from your pet's food dish.

Property maintenance is another important step in controlling an ant problem—especially with severe ant infestations. For example, caulking windows, making sure your windows are fitting tight, and repairing foundation cracks can help. Tackling environments that make the home and property more inviting to ants is a difficult chore. One can never make a property completely ant-proof—nor would you want to try!
