Fighting Ants

Ants cause a lot of nuisance and contamination of food, for example. Moreover, you are never sure where else the ant has been. Ants are one of the most common problems, fortunately ants are virtually harmless, but very annoying. Some species of ants can bite or sting and pharaoh ants, for example, can spread diseases when searching for food. Food that ants have walked over is best discarded immediately because of the bacteria that ants carry under their paws. In addition, the ant protects the aphid by eating the larva of the ladybug (enemy aphid), which can cause problems to your plants or crops

Ants nuisance? These are the main symptoms

Especially during the months of May, June and July, the number of ants around and perhaps in your home will increase. Ants start building nests in spring and there are always ants looking for food, preferably sweets. Then also comes the time of year when there is eating outside in the gardens, and ants are so close to the house where there is always something tasty to be found as well.

Eating inside, with the window or door open, also attracts ants. In our daily lives we can hardly avoid ants. You usually recognize them because you see them walking, or when there are gaps between the joints of your tiles in the garden. Ants like to nest under the terrace, so ant control is necessary if you want to prevent your terrace from subsiding. This is due to the extensive burrowing that ants dig under your tiles.

What should you NOT do?

 It is therefore logically unwise not to clean up (sweet) food, or leave it lying around after it has been tampered with. Fighting ants is also not a matter of spreading poison on or around the ant nests, certain poisons are very harmful to your soil/soil life and can eventually start to accumulate in the soil. Result: No more ants, but also no more active soil life. Ants control succeeded, but nothing will grow there for the time being.

So be careful at all times when fighting ants with anti ant sprays and/or powder, this can cause health problems or soil problems in your garden. Of course, do not apply poisons at all if you have pets or children. Poisons have a much more violent reaction to (small) pets and children. So this is, without exaggeration, life-threatening.

What can you do?

 To control ants, you can try some home, garden and kitchen methods yourself. However, the problem is often that these methods are temporary, and thus do not solve the ant problem permanently. In many cases, the ants will move and settle in a different place in your garden. Good hygiene is very important, furthermore, spring is the perfect time to check for cracks or seams in your home, you can seal these up nicely before summer. Then in summer it is only important to prevent the ants from entering your home through windows and doors, for example by stringing a copper wire under them. Do this no later than February or March so that you are ready when the ants show up again.

How to prevent ants

Essential to preventing ants is a tidy environment. Should you be sitting outside in nice weather, clean up food scraps immediately. Also, do not leave sweet products open and exposed, but clean them up in the pantry/cellar closet. Even ice cream that melts slowly and accidentally leaks onto tiles (outside) is food for ants. So it is advisable to flush this away immediately.

Ants also love to walk in and around trash cans. By washing containers and trash cans with soapy water and detergent, you prevent ants from easily walking in and out of the container and trash can.

Fighting ants? Follow these 5 tips:

  1. Pour boiling water over the ant nests once or twice a day for several days in a row.
  2. Dissolve ant powder in water or sprinkle it dry over paths in the garden where you walk a lot.
  3. Dilute 1 part cleaning vinegar with 2 parts water and pour it into and over the nests and paths.
  4. Spreading brown sugar around the nests and on your paths. Slightly less friendly, the ant will actually “explode” as the sugar ferments. The sprinkled sugar will be taken by the ants to the nest, where the queen will also eat from it.
  5. Fix a copper wire under/against your threshold near doors and windows. Ants will prefer to avoid copper and will not enter because of this.

These tips can provide temporary improvement. Do you want to get rid of ant nuisance permanently? Always have ants controlled by a pest controller!
