It must be Spring, because ants are everywhere! There are basically three types of ants found in Michigan
Let's focus on the "House Infesting" ants, in particular Sugar ants, which we get a lot of calls for. When sugar ants invade your home, it can be extremely aggravating, as these ants will swarm in large numbers and can be difficult to completely remove. The best defense is to not give them a food source, so keep everything as clean as possible.
To get rid of them, ant baits, in particular "sweet baits" are best. Ant baits are designed so that ants don't die right away, but take some of the "food" back to their colony, and share with the rest of the ants. Be careful! Most ant baits are generally non-toxic to humans, but are dangerous to other pets, and children. Careful placement and disposal is important.
Sometimes, it is best to leave it to the professionals. If you have an ant problem in Grand Rapids that you need taken care of, call us at Professional Pest Management today!
