How to Prevent Pavement Ants

Published on NewsOK Published: March 12, 2013

Second, keep the kitchen clean. Pavement ants are attracted to morsels of food, even the food left on dirty dishes. If something sticky and sweet spills, clean it up right away. Basic cleanliness is one of the best ways to prevent pavement ants from infesting your kitchen.

Third, caulk openings to your house. Ants enter your house just like other pests do, by entering through small cracks and holes. Seal up your foundation. Make sure that doors close snugly, and that there are no open cracks around window frames.

If you notice pavement ants in your house, ant traps are more commonly used than indoor sprays. Use ant traps as directed.

These few steps should keep your house relatively free of pavement ants. Though it's almost impossible to never, ever see a stray ant indoors, it is possible to reduce infestations.
