Why Do I Have Ants In My Kitchen
Its been a long cold winter in Western Pennsylvania. It is now early April and the seasons are changing. We are starting to get our first signs of spring. I know that the phone at Spectrum Pest Control is going to start ringing off the hook. This is the start of our busy season. Mrs Smith is on the phone screaming because she has ants all over her kitchen. This is a common problem in our area whenever the weather breaks after a long winter. Ants are a lot like we are, when the weather gets warm out, they want to be out and about. The kitchen in your home is a prime spot for them to invade because there is a food source. Any crumbs, sugar, and food particles are something that ants are looking for in the early part of the year. It is also possible that there was nothing really attracting them to your home, it just happens that they were out foraging because of the warm weather and you home was just in their path.
If this is a problem you have been experiencing for years on end, we would recommend first trying to remove any food source that could be attracting the ants into your home. If this does not solve the problem, it might be time to call in a professional. Spectrum Pest Control is only a phone call away, and we also offer plans that will take care of the ants and all of the other creepy crawlers that like to invade your homes.
