How Do Ants Infest Homes In Washington DC So Quickly?
Ants can be found infesting kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas of the home repeatedly, because they use invisible trails of pheromones to tell each other where food sources and other important things are located. Ants don't have very good eyesight, so they may rely almost entirely on these pheromone trails to navigate your home, finding their way around using their sense of smell.
For example, when a single ant scout finds a food source (such as the food in your pantry), that lone ant will immediately mark the area with pheromones, indicating the presence of food, and leave a trail of that same pheromone leading back to the ant colony. In Washington DC homes, these colonies may be located inside the walls of your home, outside underneath the sidewalk, or a number of other places.
For professional ant control services, leave it to the expert technicians at Miche Pest Control. Our friendly service professionals will get rid of your ant infestation quickly, and treat preventatively to keep more ants from coming back after your initial infestation has been eliminated.
How Can I Prevent Ants from Infesting My Washington DC Property?
Ants are tiny. They can fit into the smallest openings, and they are pretty sneaky about their entry methods. Once they get inside of your property, they can be very hard to get rid of. Luckily, there are some ways you can prevent ants from infesting your home and/or business:
- Make sure to seal off entrances, repair cracks and crevices, and spray an ant barrier insecticide around your home.
- Keep food stored in airtight containers.
- Clean up spills and crumbs immediately and wash dirty dishes promptly.
- Regularly sweep and vacuum your floors.
- Proper sanitation goes a long way in preventing ants, so be conscious of cleanliness.

Washington DC, formally the District of Columbia and also known as DC or just Washington, is the capital city of the United States of America. It is located on the Potomac River bordering Maryland and Virginia, with Congress holding its first session there in 1800. The city was named for George Washington, the first president of the United States and a Founding Father, and the federal district is named after Columbia, a female personification of the nation. As the seat of the US federal government and several international organizations, the city is an important world political capital. It is one of the most visited cities in the US, with over 20 million visitors in 2016.
The US Constitution provided for a federal district under the exclusive jurisdiction of US Congress; the district is therefore not a part of any U.S. state. The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River near the country's East Coast. The City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the national capital. In 1801, the land, formerly part of Maryland and Virginia (including the settlements of Georgetown and Alexandria), officially became recognized as the federal district. In 1846, Congress returned the land originally ceded by Virginia, including the city of Alexandria; in 1871, it created a single municipal government for the remaining portion of the district.
The city is divided into quadrants centered on the Capitol Building, and there are as many as 131 neighborhoods. It is the 20th-most populous city in the US. Commuters from the surrounding Maryland and Virginia suburbs raise the city's daytime population to more than one million during the workweek. Washington's metropolitan area is the country's sixth-largest metropolitan area, and includes parts of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.
