What Brings Ants Indoors?

What Brings Ants Indoors?

During the spring and summer seasons, it is not uncommon for Oklahoma homeowners to find unwanted ants around their property and, even worse, inside of their homes. However, understanding what areas provide safety for ants around your property and what draws them closer can help keep them from infesting your home. If you are struggling with an ant infestation or want to be proactive, we will explain a few of the problems that could be bringing ants indoors around your property.

Like other pests, ants will begin seeking a new shelter when weather disrupts their current one. Often, ants will nest outdoors in mulch, flower beds or piles of leaves that are near your home. Unfortunately, once it rains, the ants will begin to seek a new shelter source to avoid drowning. Because your home is likely nearby, this will likely lead them to infiltrate the home through small cracks or openings in search of a new shelter.

Many species of ant can also be found around your property in trees or areas of your lawn that haven’t been maintained. If these trees are untrimmed and make contact with your home, it provides a direct pathway that can ultimately bring ants indoors. To keep this at bay, it is important to make sure that your lawn and trees are well-maintained and as neat as possible to remove any potential nesting sites that ants may utilize.
