Ants are the number one pest in the United States. With more than 700 species occurring in the country and more than 20 species affecting homes and other structures, it is not surprising that many report problems with this pest.

However, there are some simple steps that homeowners can take to reduce the chances of accidentally inviting ants into their homes.

1. Learn popular hangouts

It is not surprising to hear that ants often attack kitchens. After all, kitchens are full of food and water, and ants (as well as all other insects) need to survive. Attract ants to bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, basements, walls, and around air conditioning and heating units.

2. Remove water sources

Reducing the humidity and stagnant water around your house can help prevent ants. Adjust the leaking pipes and regularly inspect the submerged areas for moisture. Consider using a humidifier on wet foundations, crawling areas, or rooms. Outside, make sure the low-lying areas and sewers are working properly so that water can drain out of the basement of the house.
