Tips for Avoiding Ants

Experts from Arizona Pest Control recommend the following tips to avoid ant infestations:

  • Eliminate sources of moisture or standing water near a home.
  • Keep tree branches and other shrubbery well trimmed and away from the house.
  • Seal cracks and holes on the outside of the home.
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house and five inches from the ground.
  • Keep food in sealed containers and dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Keep pet food and water dishes clean and remove any spilled food.
