Ants can be a real nuisance. Not only do they establish colonies quickly, but they can ruin vegetation and bite humans and pets. It may seem easy to treat ants yourself, but each type of ant has different behavioral traits and physiologies, which means there may be different types of treatments that are most effective for each type of ant. Bayou Cajun Pest Control can properly diagnose which type of ants you're having a problem with, then effectively treat your home or yard to remove these ants.
Once you have ants inside, it can be tricky to get them to leave. Ants are highly socialized, meaning they rarely travel alone. If there are a couple of ants, more are likely to show up. If the source of your ant problem is something you can pick up or remove, then it helps to do so quickly. If you're not sure why you have ants inside, Bayou Cajun Pest Control can help you identify the problem and treat the ant problem. Some ants are very difficult to get rid of once they're inside (such as carpenter ants), and ants aren't always a sign of a "dirty" home.
Things you can do to prevent ants:
Pick up food and make sure there are no crumbs (especially inside)
Sweep and mop after cooking
Store food in jars or sealed bags
Wipe off jars, canisters, or other food storage containers (especially if they're sticky or dirty)
