Here's What May Be Causing Ant Infestations In Your Great Falls Home

Ant problems can take over your Great Falls home at any point throughout the year and when they do, they’re an unwelcomed nuisance. Unfortunately, attracting ants to your property is something that you might be doing completely unbeknownst to you. Ants are primarily in search of food and water, and if they sense that either is present in your home, they will take advantage of any crack or opening that they see. Some of the specific ways that you might be encouraging ants into your home are:

  • Leaving pet food in opened bags
  • Allowing crumbs to collect on the floor and counters
  • Not cleaning up after spills and food residue
  • Putting jars and cans in the recycling bin that haven’t been rinsed
  • Letting garbage pile up and not using a bin with a lid
  • Having dirty dishes pile up in the sink
  • Not using airtight containers for leftovers and pantry items
  • Having leaky pipes, faucets, gutters, and other fixtures 

At Miche Pest Control, we work to protect homeowners like yourself from ants throughout the year. Our general residential pest control program includes both exterior and interior applications to create a barrier between your home and these pests, we guarantee it.

Great Falls' Step-By-Step Guide To Effective Ant Prevention

Ants are a year-round pest problem for Great Falls homeowners. In order to keep them from developing into an infestation, follow this step-by-step guide:

  1. Secure all openings. One of the most common ways that ants enter properties is by fitting through any crack they can find. In order to keep them on the outside, fill all crevices with silicone-based caulk, and use materials like weatherstripping to fill other gaps, like the ones around windows and doors. 
  2. Tend to moisture issues. Ants seek water, so when there are leaking pipes, faucets, showerheads, downspouts, and other fixtures, rectify them. 
  3. Practice proper food storage. Sweet and sugary foods are highly desirable for ants, so keep all food in locking containers and dispose of overly ripened food. 
  4. Maintain cleanliness. To further prevent ant problems, do the dishes routinely, take out the trash often, and clean up after spills. 
  5. Call the pros. The most reliable way to prevent ant problems is with professional assistance from a pest expert. 

At Miche Pest Control, we take ant control seriously. Our methods combine crevice treatments and interior and exterior spray treatments. We include ant control in our quarterly pest control program and if any ants return between routinely scheduled visits, we’ll re-treat properties at no additional cost to our customers.

How To Tell If Ants Around Your Great Falls Property Are Dangerous

You might encounter many different types of ants on your Great Falls property, and while some of them are harmless, other species are far more of a problem. The red imported first ant is typically found outside and is notable for its reddish-brown coloring. If these ants are stepped on or perceive a threat, they will bite people. To make matters worse, they usually do this as a group. Then there’s the carpenter ant, which is big, black, and has bent antennae. They are dangerous because they attack wood and destroy it similarly to how termites do; however, they burrow through wood rather than eat it. The odorous house ant is also capable of depositing bacteria like E. coli in food.

At Miche Pest Control, we work around the clock to protect local homeowners from ants, dangerous and otherwise. Our methods of ant control are thorough and involve granular treatments, interior and exterior sprays, and targeted crevice applications. Ant control is included with our ongoing quarterly services because we know just how pervasive and persistent these pests can be.
