Advice for Keeping Ants Away

A recent study by The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) revealed that more than half of all homeowners have had problems with ants. Ants are the most widespread pest in the nation.

They are social insects with extremely organized colonies of millions of members. Ants have a hierarchy where every member has its own role. The most prevalent ants that homeowners should look out for are fire and carpenter ants.
