Ant Control - How to keep them out!

Jan 8, 2010, 13:57 PM by Clark Pest Control San Diego Office

During the rain and cold season the most common pest we encounter in our homes are ants. Controlling ants isn't an easy task, those ant trails go far beyond your Kitchen counters and floor.

A trained, licensed technician knows how to handle sever infestations and most importantly getting to the source. I would recommend following the tips we are about to share with you over a DIY chemical application. DIY chemical applications are dangerous and more and more injuries are occurring each year year, if all else fails contact a pro who is trained to handle and work with pesticides and can get to the source!


  • Keep a tidy house, any food particles that may be left on kitchen counters may attract ants.
  • Vacuum every few days, any food particles that may have been dropped by a child of family pet is an open inventation.
  • Seal gaps under sinks (plumbing) and around windows

Most infestations can be controlled with Clark's Year Round Pest Control. However, in cases of heavy, difficult infestations a combination of residual barriers and baits may be used.
